Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez could use his relationship with Real Valladolid chairman Ronaldo to land in-demand defender Mohammed Salisu.

Pérez has close ties with the ex-Brazil forward, whom he signed to star for the Galacticos.

Real need a solid centre back for next season with Sergio Ramos fading out and Salish has been on their shopping list.

Salisu has impressed on his debut season in the Spanish top-flight and has made 27 appearances (featured in the starting XI in all but one match) before the suspension of the league due to La Liga.

The 21-year-old has a £10.45m transfer release clause in his contract which expires on 30 June, 2022.

English giants Manchester United are said to be leading the race to land the uncapped Ghanaian defender.
