New Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has handed Can just 52 minutes of game time in 2019-20 and left him out of his squad entirely for the Champions League group stages. Can was angered by the latter omission and admitted that he would have considered leaving during the summer had he known he would not be called upon in Europe, and reports in Spain claim that he has now told Madrid that he is open to a January switch to the Bernabeu.
The Germany international is thought to be aware that he would likely have to play second fiddle to Casemiro in midfield but is willing to fight for a place in the Los Blancos first team.
Can could be available for as little as €20m (£17.7m) and the report claims that Madrid president Florentino Perez is seriously considering a move when the transfer window reopens.
Seems legit, both him and Isla should follow their dreams no matter what...
Real are currently short on midfielders. They only have Kroos, Casemiro, Modric and Valverde as real midfielders + James. Both Modric and James could leave next summer too. They'll need someone to make up the numbers for their midfield. Not sure Can is the man though.
