Yan Couto, a real option for Real Madrid

Ahead of the 2024 summer, it looks like Real Madrid are strongly preparing to strengthen the full backs position.

Even though those positions have been performing at a high level this season – with Dani Carvajal in the best form of his career, and a beautiful combination of minutes from Ferland Mendy & Fran Garcia at LB.

Still, the club is working to strengthen the positions – and this time we are talking about the RB.

Having only Carvajal in that position, with the player being now 32 years old – Real Madrid are looking for a player who will be ready to replace him when his good days are over.

The name who has been most mentioned at the club, according to the Spanish sources – is Yan Couto (21) of Girona.

At the club, they are monitoring the Brazilian RB everyday more – and now his name is a real option. Couto is a player of the Manchester City group, and his contract expires in 2025. Currently , Couto’s market value is €10m – but there’s no doubt that the City group will ask for more in case he decides to leave this summer.

Everyday more, it looks like Yan Couto will wear Real Madrid’s kit next season. Playing at a high level with Girona, and knowing the league well – Couto would be a great signing for Real Madrid.
