Agent: Big Spanish club is interested in Tagliafico
Ajax’s defender Nicolás Tagliafico can move to Spain in the summer.
Ricardo Schlieper, the midfielder’s agent said that Nicolás was aware of an interest from a big Spanish club, hinting at Real Madrid.
“They say that Tagliafico’s name was included in the shortlist of Real Madrid because Marcelo will join Juventus,” the agent began the speech.
“However, no one has ever called me, even if there were offers from other teams, he has two years left under the contract, and it does not include a release clause, but Ajax are ready to set a price tag for leading European clubs.”
“Which teams are interested? All I can say is that there is a big Spanish club among them. However, I think it’s time for Tagliafico to reach a new level” Schlieper said to Radio Rivadavia.
The 26-year-old Argentine defender joined the Amsterdam club last summer, moving from Independiente.
