Reports in Spain claim Real Madrid have a deal with Alisson, but haven’t met Roma’s €80m asking price.
The goalkeeper is in Russia for the World Cup, where he’ll be the Brazilian number 1 ahead of Manchester City’s Ederson.
He’s been heavily linked with a move away from the Giallorossi this summer, and Los Merengues appear to be favourites after Liverpool were priced out of a move.
Now Mundo Deportivo is reporting that Alisson has agreed in principle on a five-year contract with Madrid, which would include an option for a sixth.
They are still some way from Roma’s asking price though, offering €55m plus €5m in bonuses when the capital club are insisting on €80m.
