Lyon’s midfielder Nabil Fekir fell into the realm of Real Madrid’s interest.

According to the Spanish newspaper Marca, Real Madrid can acquire the French midfielder.

Liverpool and Barcelona were also interested in the services of Nabil, but the negotiations were deadlocked in the summer. Moreover, Chelsea joined the fight for the attacking midfielder.

The Bavarians have been considered the favorite to sign the 25-year-old world champion for a long time. However, the Pensioners are ready to change the balance of power with a 60-million euros proposal.

The Frenchman’s current contract with Lyon is valid until summer 2020 and the club’s president, Jean-Michel Aulas, is nervous about the fact that Nabil’s price is falling every transfer window.

Fekir has played 16 matches in all tournaments, scored 6 goals and given 4 assists this season.
