Bayer hope to beat Man Utd & Real Madrid to Badiashile

Bayer Leverkusen are hopeful of completing a deal for Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile, Téléfoot reports.

Badiashile is a highly sought-after young talent and Monaco turned down a €15m bid from Rennes for him.

Both Manchester United and Real Madrid may provide competition for the 19-year-old.

United are ‘in talks’ with Monaco while Madrid have ‘spoken to his entourage’.

But despite that potentially bad news, Bayer remain hopeful of winning the race for Badiashile.

Julien Maynard of Téléfoot states that negotiations are ongoing between Leverkusen and Monaco.

Real Madrid’s interest in Badiashile was on the cover of Spanish daily AS on Friday.

The publication described him as the ‘new Varane’ and indicated that Zinedine Zidane has made him a priority.
