January 12 News According to the exclusive report of the famous reporter Sam Dean of the Daily Telegraph,
Chelsea are considering a move for Real Madrid youth defender Rafa Marin, who could leave this summer for a cheap fee.
Marin is an outstanding central defender. The contract he signed with Real Madrid expires in 18 months, which has attracted the attention of many European giants.
Juventus and RB Leipzig are also thought to be keeping an eye on Marin’s situation, with Chelsea potentially in contention for the 20-year-old.
Marin has yet to complete his senior team debut in Real Madrid, but has played in the Real Madrid Castilla reserve team this season and is a member of the Spanish national youth team.
If Real Madrid can’t convince Marin to sign a new contract, they will cash in on the player in the summer transfer window rather than risk losing him for free in 2024.
It is understood that Chelsea have conducted extensive investigations on Marin, and it will be difficult to sign him in the winter window. Sources in Spain believe that the price of the defender may be between 5 million and 10 million pounds.
Chelsea’s efforts to sign young players are aimed at creating a multi-club model similar to the Red Bull football group.
