Bayern Munich Tracking £35 Million Rated Defender, Real Madrid Can Get Him For £6 Million

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid appear to be eyeing up the same defender.

The January transfer window is approaching with clubs across Europe already identifying potential new talent.

Two clubs in need of reinforcing are Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. Both teams are off the pace in the Bundesliga and La Liga, respectively.

They've been leaking goals so, naturally, the pair of European giants are keen on bolstering their defensive rank.

And it's believed Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are tracking the same player in the shape of Mario Hermoso.

The Espanyol star is attracting plenty of interest, and his days at RCDE Stadium look to be numbered.

The German outfit are reportedly prepared to pay his €40 million (£35 million) release clause.

However, Hermoso is Real Madrid's former player and upon his sale, the club inserted a buy back clause. He's available to the defending Champions League holders for just €7.5 million (£6.6 million).

Though it's suggested Bayern Munich are hoping to acquire his services by offering him regular game time.

A transfer tug of war could be on the cards. Either way, Hermoso is in line for a big January switch with two of the biggest clubs in world football admiring his talent.
