Real Madrid are keeping a close eye on Vedat Muriqi ahead of the January transfer window and Lazio are paying close attention to the situation.
The 28-year-old Kosovan forward never lived up to his €20m price tag in the Italian capital and was sold to RCD Mallorca in the summer, in a deal worth around €7.7m. A key part of the negotiations was the inclusion of a future resale clause, something that could soon bring key funds to Lazio.
As reported by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Real Madrid are interested in picking up Muriqi in January and their possible deal with RCD Mallorca could be highly beneficial for Lazio, who have a 45% future resale clause on the player.
The proceeds from the sale of the Kosovan could be enough to resolve the club’s issues with the liquidity index, allowing them to bring in some much-needed reinforcements in January.
It’s hard to imagine Mallorca giving up on Muriqi, however, as he’s a vital part of their squad. This season, he’s netted eight goals in 12 La Liga appearances.
