Real Madrid have reached a ‘total agreement’ for the transfer of Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, according to reports in Spain.
El Mundo Deportivo say the European champions will pay the Italian club an initial €70m alongside a further €5m in bonuses for the Brazil international.
However, Sky Sport Italia contradict these claims, stating instead that whilst a solid offer from Madrid is expected but has not yet been made.
The Italian reports also say that the initial bid will start out at €50m, which falls short of the Rome-based club’s valuation of the goalkeeper.
Alisson has also been linked with moves to Chelsea and Liverpool, but he is under contract in Italy until 2021 and it is not believed either English club can match his asking price.
On Wednesday, Marca claimed Madrid had ‘accelerated’ talks for the former Internacional goalkeeper, who has insisted he wants his future clarified at the earliest possible date.
“My belief and desire is for everything to be sorted ahead of the World Cup,” Alisson told reporters after Brazil defeated Austria on Sunday, as cited by Diario AS.
“These dates are not up to me and everything is up to my agents but if there is no resolution before the tournament begins, it will need to wait a while as my entire focus will be with Brazil.”
Mundo Deportivo claim the shot-stopper has given the thumbs up to Los Blancos after his agent Ze Maria agreed personal terms for a five-year deal with option for a sixth.
