Real's Next Signing Revealed?

Real Madrid have lost superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus, and are still in the market for a replacement. New reports suggest that they have now identified their next target for this window.

With the exception of Ronaldo's departure, Los Blancos have quietly gone about their business so far. They have brought in Alvaro Odriozola, who will rival Dani Carvajal for the right-back spot, as well as young talents in Vinicius Junior and Andriy Lunin, while Rodrygo will join the club in January.

However, new coach Julen Lopetegui is keen to continue his squad revamp, and while a replacement for Ronaldo is yet to be found, it seems the Spaniard wants to bring in a new left-back.

Lopetegui and his scouting team are understood to be interested in signing FC Porto's Brazilian left-back Alex Telles, according to AS. The 25-year-old reportedly is believed to have a €40 million (R630 million) buyout clause, and Real are keen to lure him to Spain.

Marcelo, 30, is not getting any younger, while Theo Hernandez, who was bought last season, struggled to impress in his first campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Telles, meanwhile, made 45 appearances for Porto last season, and assisted an incredible 20 goals while scoring four himself.
