Transfers: For Hugo Ekitike (Reims), Real Madrid would like to get ahead of Newcastle United

Except surprise, Hugo Ekitike should not evolve with the Stade de Reims in 2022-23. Author of ten goals in L1 last season, the 20-year-old striker arouses the greed of the biggest European clubs. If Newcastle United would have reached an agreement with the Reims club for a transfer of some 36 million euros, plus ten million bonuses, Real Madrid would have entered the dance, reveals The Team this Wednesday.
The 2022 Spanish champion would like to recruit a young striker, capable of replacing Karim Benzema (35 years old in December), under contract with the Merengue until June 2023, in the long term. Thus, the Merengue would see Hugo Ekitike enter the rotation slowly and surely, a bit like Eduardo Camavinga. As the daily specifies, the agent of the native of Reims would have even traveled to the Spanish capital in recent days to meet the Madrid leaders.

However, the Magpies and the Merengue would not be alone on the file. Indeed, Bayern Munich, who could part ways with Robert Lewandowski this summer, would also be following the player closely. But will these two heavyweights of European football raise the stakes to overtake Newcastle United at the last minute? On the Reims side, the offer from the club from the north of England represents a magnificent financial opportunity. From now on, Jean-Pierre Caillot awaits the last word from Hugo Ekitike.
