Real Madrid and Manchester United ready to lock horns ‘over interest in Mohammed Salisu’… and the highly rated Real Valladolid defender has a release clause of just £10m
Real Madrid are preparing to enter the race to sign Mohammed Salisu from Real Valladolid as the battle to sign one of the most promising defenders in Europe heats up.
The 20-year-old has put in a string of impressive performances in his breakthrough season in La Liga which have already attracted the interests of Manchester United and Atletico Madrid.
Salisu signed a new deal at Valladolid last May and while his contract runs out in 2022, he also has a release clause of just £10million – sparking the surge of interest from Europe’s top clubs including Madrid according to AS.

Valladolid are desperate for him to sign a new deal to at the very least protect his value, but with interest elsewhere the Ghanaian is more likely to move on.
United appear to lead the race to land his signature, with the defender keen on a move to the Premier League.
Salisu is yet to be capped at international level, but a Ghana call-up seems sooner rather than later.
Southampton were also monitoring his situation in the January transfer window but are unlikely to rival bids from Europe’s more established clubs.
Salisu has already featured 24 times this term, including one appearance in the Copa del Rey and scoring his first senior goal against Eibar back in October.
The defender is also being tracked by Manchester United and has a release clause of £10m
