Real Madrid Join Barcelona In Tussle To Sign German Prodigy


Real Madrid Join Barcelona In Tussle To Sign German Prodigy

Real Madrid have joined Barcelona in the race to sign German prodigy Karim Adeyemi from RB Salzburg.

The 19-year-old is enjoying a breakthrough campaign in the Austrian Bundesliga after netting 15 goals in 25 appearances across all competitions, and Spanish publication SPORT reports that it may take a fee of up to €50 million to prise the starlet away from the club.

Los Blancos believes the Adeyemi could be a cheaper alternative to Erling Haaland, with Manchester United reportedly willing to pay up to a staggering €220 million for the Norwegian.

The same report revealed that Borussia Dortmund attempted to strike a deal for the Germany international, but their previous bid of €35 million was rejected.

Barcelona are expected to come in with a slightly higher offer, with Barca Universal suggesting that the club are ready to make a bid of €40 million for the player.

Adeyemi could be the focus of a bidding war across Europe, with the likes of Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain also rumoured to be interested in the teenager.

The striker has enjoyed a stellar start to his career, and already boasts an impressive haul of trophies after winning two Austrian Bundesliga titles, two Austrian Cups and a European U21 Championship title with Germany earlier this year.


He also won his first cap for 'Die Mannschaft' in September, and scored on his debut in a 6-0 drubbing of Armenia in a World Cup qualifier.

This was followed by two further appearances in 2-1 and 4-0 wins over Romania and North Macedonia in October.

But for now, Adeyemi's focus will be on RB Salzburg's next match at home to Hartberg on Saturday.
