Madrid scout Yarmolenko

Jose Mourinho reportedly sent assistants Aitor Karanka and Rui Faria to Seville this midweek to scout Ukrainian forward Andriy Yarmolenko.

In action for his national team against Norway at La Certuja stadium in the south of Spain, Yarmolenko was reportedly the reason both Karanka and Faria attended in the stands.

The versatile 23-year-old is seen as his country’s next big star and has been linked with a big money move out of Dynamo Kiev before.

Karanka and Faria’s presence has reports in Spain now linking Real Madrid with interest, particularly given that the Madrid duo reportedly left the game shortly after Yarmolenko was substituted off on Wednesday evening.
