This season’s revelation in Ligue 1, Hugo Ekitike caught the eye of Real Madrid who could satisfy the demands of Stade de Reims to get ahead of the competition.
According to published information AS, Real Madrid would have entered the race to try to secure the services of Hugo Ekitike. Having become one of the most coveted players on the continent after a more than promising first season in Ligue 1, he would be a key point in the reconstruction policy carried out by Florentino Pérez. Unknown to the general public before the start of the year, he is now in the sights of the biggest European teams. Courted by Newcastle or Paris Saint-Germain, the leaders of the Stade de Reims hoped to earn 45 million euros from its sale.
Under contract until June 2024 with the Stade de Reims, Hugo Ekitike dazzled the French championship with 11 goals and 4 assists to his credit in 26 games played in all competitions. With a view to finding a replacement for a generation of Karim Benzema, he would fit perfectly into the plans of Carlo Ancelotti and the Madrid management. A long-term option not to be overlooked.
