Real Madrid have emerged as shock contenders to sign former Arsenal defender David Luiz this summer.
The Brazilian left the Gunners after two seasons on June 30, and he is currently assessing his options for next term.
A return to Benfica has been touted, but according to Defensa Central, he could make a surprise move to Real Madrid.
The hierarchy are now looking for another experienced centre-back, and have their sights on landing Luiz on a free.
The Madrid giants are not planning any high-profile signings this summer despite the repeated links with Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in June next year. Los Blancos could wait to sign him for free.
They could still offload a number of players this summer. Isco has recently been linked with a potential move elsewhere.
