Real Madrid sent scouts to Sunday night’s clash between Roma and Inter, reportedly to monitor duo Kostas Manolas and Mauro Icardi.
A report in Tuttomercatoweb outlines how both players are on Madrid’s radar as they look to step up the search for reinforcements across their ranks.
Both players are said to be targets of Los Blancos for next summer’s transfer window – rather than January – with each possessing an ‘attainable’ release clause.
Roma’s Greek defender Manolas has a €36m release clause in the Italian capital while Icardi has a €110m clause which is said to last for two weeks from 1 July 2019.
The European champions are said to be intent on strengthening their defensive and attacking ranks in 2019.
