Report: Alisson waits for Madrid

Roma goalkeeper Alisson has reportedly decided to join Real Madrid, who are prepared to pay €60m for his services.

According to Marca, Alisson ‘will give priority’ to Madrid following Zinedine Zidane’s exit, the Frenchman having persisted with Keylor Navas.

The newspaper explains the 25-year-old is also being courted by Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea but believes Los Blancos are leading the race, given he is ‘first’ on their list of prospective shot-stoppers.

Roma also ‘need to sell’ before July 4, so as to balance their books for next season, although it remains to be seen whether they will want more than the €60m Madrid would be willing to pay.

Former Giallorossi and Brazil right-back Cafu recently claimed his countryman – who will keep goal for the Selecao at the World Cup – would leave for the Santiago Bernabeu.

Alisson shot to prominence over the past season as the glovesman with the most saves in the Champions League, while helping the Italians beat Barcelona in the quarter-finals.
