Real Madrid set to raid Liverpool for Andy Robertson

Real Madrid have identified Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson as the ideal solution to their left-back problem, as per the DailyMail.

The La Liga giants have had a problem in the left-back position this season, with first-choice left-back Ferland Mendy spending multiple spells out injured.

The Frenchman has often been covered by Eduardo Camavinga and Nacho, but the club is set to sign a substantive replacement for him, as he is expected to leave this summer.

Los Blancos have identified the 29-year-old Robertson as the ideal player to fill the position, and are willing to pay over £40m to bring the Scotland captain to Madrid.

Robertson is a key player for Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp, but the left-back could be tempted by the offer of silverware and UEFA Champions League football at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the Reds set to miss out next season.

Andy Robertson – perfect for Real Madrid? 

Robertson is a world-class left-back with a great deal of experience under his belt. The Liverpool man would provide instant quality to Los Blancos with his leadership, durability, and dependability.

At 29, Robertson is not expected to feature for many more seasons (doesn’t look like a natural fit in Klopp’s new system) but will provide cover long enough to allow Real Madrid to develop their young left-back Fran Garcia, who has excelled at Rayo Vallecano this season.

Garcia can understudy Robertson and improve his game ahead of earning a starting shirt for the side.

The move will represent a win-win for the club as Robertson will provide an immediate upgrade and also help prepare Garcia to become a world-class left-back for the club.
