Real Madrid 'identify three possible replacements for Casemiro'

Madrid 'considering replacements for Casemiro'
Real Madrid reportedly identify three potential replacements for midfielder Casemiro ahead of the next transfer window.

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to press ahead with plans to find a long-term replacement for Casemiro.

While the 28-year-old remains an important member of the first-team squad, Zinedine Zidane wants to find an alternative to the Brazil international.

According to AS, that has resulted in the Los Blancos manager taking an interest in signing one of three defensive-minded midfielders.

The report suggests that Chelsea's N'Golo Kante, Lille's Boubakary Soumare and Rennes' Eduardo Camavinga are all on the Frenchman's radar.

Although age may play a significant factor, Zidane must also consider the size of the fee involved, with Real having ambitions to strengthen further forward.

Camavinga, who will not turn 18 years of age until November, is allegedly regarded as Zidane's preferred option.
