Posted by

Real Madrid are reportedly keen to secure the services of Lille attacker Jonathan David to Bernabeu next summer.

The 22-year-old who has been linked with a switch to Arsenal and Man Utd has been in fine form for his French giants during the 2022-23 season, finding the back of the net nine times in 11 Ligue 1 games, in addition to providing two assists.

Since arriving at Lille from Belgian outfit, Gent back in 2020, the forward has found the back of the net 41 times and provided seven assists in 107 games, with his form leading to a host of transfer rumors.

Arsenal and Man Utd were among the team to be linked with the forward over the recent transfer window, however, the deadline passed with him still remaining Lille’s player.

Lille have David on a deal until the summer of 2025, however, they could struggle to keep hold of him next summer if he continues his excellent form.

The striker also has an impressive scoring record for Canada, scoring 20 goals in 30 games for his national team, which will be present at the 2022 World Cup.

Canada will open their tournament against Belgium on November 23 before also taking on Croatia and Morocco in the group stage of the competition, with David set to be a key player for the Reds.

According to TodoFichajes, La Liga giants, Real Madrid are looking to bring David to Bernabeu next summer and are ready to pay  €60m (£51.7m) for his signature.
