Real Madrid switch sights to AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli

Real Madrid are interested in AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli ahead of the summer market.

Real president Florentino Perez recognises they need to find a quality centre-half signing as part of a planned squad overhaul at the end of this season.

Perez was interested in Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci, but is now ready to focus on Romagnoli.

Okdiario says Real chiefs believe the young centre-half is the easier option to prise away, with Bonucci insisting he is happy at Milan under coach Rino Gattuso.

Romagnoli, 25, could also be sacrificed by Milan with the need to make a major sale to satisfy financial fair play demands.
