Real Madrid purportedly view Sevilla centre back Jules Kounde as a potential replacement for Raphael Varane as the Frenchman continue to be connected with a move away from the Bernabeu.
Chelsea and Manchester United are both accepted to be in the hunt to sign the France international, who could be sold during this current summer’s transfer window, with his contract due to lapse next June.
As indicated by Marca, Real Madrid view Kounde as a player to replace the World Cup winner ahead of the 2021-22 season.
Kounde, who has also been connected with Chelsea and Manchester United, has been in solid form for Sevilla this term, 4 multiple times and responsible one assist in 41 appearances in all competitions.
The 22-year-old has a contract at Estadio Ramon until June 2024, but there is a £68m release clause in the defender’s present deal.
Real Madrid have already agreed deal for Bayern Munich’s David Alaba on a free transfer.
