Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are reportedly interested in securing the signature of Real Madrid star Rodrygo. However, the trio of Premier League sides are in agreement that it would take a drastic turn of events for him to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

Madrid are strapping in for a significant transfer window, with Florentino Perez hoping to secure the signature of several marquee signings who can make an impact under Carlo Ancelotti.

Kylian Mbappe is among those expected to make the move to the Spanish giants, with his contract with Paris Saint-Germain set to expire at the end of the season. Los Blancos have been desperate to sign the France international for the past few years and now look set to land him without having to even fork out a record-breaking fee.

Bayern Munich left-back Alphonso Davies is also a target to provide a spark of energy in defence, with the Canada international yet to extend his stay at the Allianz Arena. But with further incomings anticipated, departures are also on the horizon.

Madrid’s situation has caught the attention of top clubs around Europe who are hopeful of signing their fringe stars. Rodrygo is among those attracting interest, with his suitors anticipating that he could be forced to make way to facilitate the arrival of Mbappe.

According to Spanish news outlet Sport, United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal are all interested in securing the signature of the Brazil international, who has scored eight and assisted five in 29 La Liga appearances so far this season.

Madrid are willing to open talks for the 23-year-old if they receive an offer of at least £86million, though there is an aura of uncertainty as to whether any of the four Premier League sides will attempt to strike a deal for the ex-Santos forward.

The quartet feel that it is an ‘impossible mission’ to lure Rodrygo away from Madrid unless he is actively offered to his suitors or if the player decides that he would like to take the next step in his career. However, his recent comments about his desire to continue winning with Los Blancos and Brazil suggest that he is very content with where he is playing his football.

He told The Guardian: “I play for the biggest national team and the biggest club in the world. If I don’t want pressure playing for those two, something is wrong. There would be no way to continue. I can never settle for losing. That’s the mentality of Real Madrid and the Seleção. I always think about winning. That’s what I’ve got in my head. I need to win to please the Brazil and Real Madrid supporters.”
