Emre Can’s time at Liverpool is ticking away with the midfielder set to leave in June when his contract expires, but his next destination remains undetermined at this point.
With a reported £85,000-a-week plus bonuses contract offer on the table from Juventus already, Can is still weighing up his options as he refuses to commit to a decision before the end of the season, opening the door to other clubs who may be keen on acquiring him.
One of the other clubs reportedly interested in the German is Real Madrid as they look to add some younger talent to their midfield ranks with Luka Modric into his 30s, and according to Spanish source Don Balon, Can is said to be eager to complete a move to the Bernabeu.
Madrid are free to negotiate terms with Can given his contract situation and should be able to comfortably meet his financial demands.
The former Bayer Leverkusen star has been a mainstay in the Liverpool midfield this season and will be a huge loss if he does indeed depart the club in the summer, a fate which is looking increasingly likely.
Bayern Munich have also been linked with a move for Can, as have Manchester United and Chelsea, while a number of midfielders have been mentioned as his replacement. Both Liverpool and Tottenham are eager to sign Inter Milan midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, who is on loan at Valencia, while the Reds have been told to pay £59m if they are to beat Arsenal to the signature of Napoli’s Jorginho, and they’re also among a host of Premier League clubs including Arsenal and West Ham that are tracking £27m-rated Benfica midfielder Bryan Cristante who is impressing on loan with Atalanta.
