Real Madrid eager to sign £180,000-a-week Liverpool centre-forward

Real Madrid enter the battle to sign Liverpool centre-forward Roberto Firmino. Brazil international is all ready to leave the Merseyside giants in the summer and has become a great option for teams who are in search of a new centre-forward.

Roberto’s existing deal at Anfield ends in the summer. Firmino has decided against renewing it. And the 31-year-old striker has informed the Reds about parting ways ahead of the next campaign. The Brazilian centre-forward is ready to be a free agent in a few months’ time.

The South American striker joined the Reds back in the summer of 2015 from Hoffenheim. The Brazilian has been a great servant of the club and has done wonders for them. Firmino has won every major trophy out there with the Reds. And, after almost eight years with Liverpool, he has decided to take the next step in his career.

Ancelotti is in search of someone who can help him rotate Karim Benzema. And Roberto Firmino looks like a decent option to have given his playing style. The Brazilian striker has a similar style to that of the Frenchman.
