Real Madrid are interested in resigning former central defender Mario Hermoso for just €7.5m, despite Espanyol inserting a €40m release clause into his contract.
The 23-year-old was signed by the Barcelona-based club for just £400k prior to the 2017/18 season, although it's his performance this campaign that have really caught the eye.
One team that look to be interested in his services as a result is Los Blancos, with Pericos Online (via AS) reporting that the Champions League holders could look to bring Hermoso back to the Santiago Berabeu at the end of the season.
They could do so however
Decent performance from Espanyol, nothing to write home about but important to keep their momentum at home. Mario Hermoso has had a very impressive start to the campaign. Goals aside, solid at the back and confident on the ball too.— Simon Harrison (@simonhfootball) September 25, 2018
