Real Madrid are reportedly preparing a summer bid for Sevilla’s Spanish international left-back, Alberto Moreno to replace Fabio Coentrão, who will be sold next summer.

According to Spanish sports daily, AS, Moreno is the primary target of Real Madrid next summer, as the 21-year-old will share time with Marcelo and another member of Spain’s U-21 European championship squad (Morata, Illarramendi, Carvajal and Isco) at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Sevilla recently re-signed Moreno until 2018 with a €30 million release clause, but the Andalusians are said to be willing to lower the price to €18 million and no more than €15 million.

However, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Italian Serie A side, Napoli, who have also made inquiries on the availability of the player, but it is believed that Moreno prefers to remain in Spain, giving Real Madrid the leg up in the negotiation process.

In an interesting twist, Moreno admitted had the possibility of joining Real Madrid Castilla in March 2013, but according to family sources, Real Madrid’s chief scout, Paco de Gracia rejected the signing stating that Moreno “didn’t have the level” to play at Real Madrid.
