Real Madrid want to sign Marc Bartra from Real Betis

Real Betis defender Marc Bartra has emerged as a prime January transfer target for Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

El Desmarque has followed up on a report from OK Diario’s Eduardo Inda on Spanish TV programme El Chiriguinto which stated that Bartra was at the top of the shopping list at the European champions.

The 27-year-old joined Los Verdiblancos last January from Borussia Dortmund in a €10m deal and now has a €60m release clause in his contract.

Bartra has since been recalled to the Spanish national squad and has emerged as a target for Madrid who have concerns over prolonged poor form from Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
