Real Madrid plotting summer swoop for Dominic Calvert-Lewin


Real Madrid manager eyeing a reunion with Calvert Lewin at Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid are reportedly preparing a summer swoop for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Los Blancos appointed Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager after Zinedine Zidane stepped down, and now the Italian boss is eyeing a reunion with the gifted English striker.

The report also adds that Madrid are considering a £ 50m move. Toffees could accept the offer due to the growing financial crisis.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has established himself as one of the best strikers in the Premier League ever since Carlo Ancelotti took over, mustering around 30 goals over the last two seasons.

The former Napoli boss also holds the 24-year-old in high regard, previously describing him as a complete striker.

Calvert-Lewin is currently with the England national team in Euro 2020, playing second-fiddle to Gareth Southgate’s first-choice striker Harry Kane.

Madrid appear to be planning for a summer overhaul with Ancelotti at the helm. Ancelotti will be looking for attacking reinforcements after the disappointing 2020/21 season.

Real Madrid attack lacked the quality and barring Karim Benzema, who ended up as the club’s top scorer and the second-most in La Liga with 23 goals.

Like Benzema, Calvert-Lewin is known for his killer instinct in the box and aerial prowess. It remains to be seen whether he can succeed the French man in the long run.

The Spanish capital club have shortlisted players like Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as summer targets, but they seem far-fetched given the current financial circumstances.
