Real Madrid weigh up a summer move for Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt, according to a report.

Real Madrid are reportedly weighing up a summer move for Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt.

The 20-year-old joined Juve from Ajax ahead of the 2019-20 campaign but has struggled to show his best form for the Old Lady, leading to suggestions that he could leave Turin this summer.

The agent of the Netherlands international has allegedly already approached Madrid to determine whether the Spanish giants would be interested in a summer move.

Los Blancos are said to have turned down the chance to sign De Ligt last summer in favour of bringing Eder Militao to the club, but according to Mundo Deportivo, Zinedine Zidane's side are now considering a move.

The report claims that Madrid are expected to be in the market for a new centre-back this summer, with RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano also linked with a switch to Spain.

Militao, though, will allegedly not be sold ahead of the 2020-21 campaign despite suggestions that the Brazilian had failed to impress Zidane since arriving from Porto.
