Real Madrid table first offer for Benfica striker Jota

Real Madrid have failed with an opening offer for Benfica striker Jota.

The 19 year-old Portuguese, says AS, was the subject of an €18m offer from Real this week - which was quickly rejected by Benfica.

Tied to the Portuguese giants until 2022, his deal carries a €30m buyout clause.

Benfica have attempted to upgrade Jota's deal with a buyout clause of €120m, though the striker has so far refused to consider negotiations.

For their part, Real are now weighing up whether to simply meet Jota's current buyout clause.
