Real Madrid will hope to sign in-demand Argentine starlet Juan Iturbe this summer, with the player keen to move to Spain, according to Fichajes. net.
The Spanish giants will look to improve their squad after a frustrating season saw them finish a disappointing third in La Liga, though they can still achieve their main goal of winning the Champions League with victory in this weekend’s final against Atletico Madrid. Iturbe, 20, has attracted interest from a whole host of top clubs in recent months after his superb displays on loan with Serie A side Hellas Verona this season, with a permanent move from Porto likely to go through this summer before his sale.
The skillful attacking midfielder has drawn comparisons with Barcelona star Lionel Messi, and although Liverpool have been reported as stepping up their interests in the player, his desire to move to Spain could mean Madrid are now the favourites to land him.
Although there are plenty of talented players in that position already on the books at the Bernabeu, it could be that the likes of Isco or Angel Di Maria are sold this summer to make room for Iturbe.
The youngster registered eight goals and four assists for Verona this season, and looks set for a big future in the game.
