Real Madrid have reportedly been offered the chance to sign 27-year-old French midfielder Corentin Tolisso on a free transfer next summer.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Real Madrid have been given the opportunity to secure the services of Corentin Tolisso on a free transfer in next summer’s transfer window. However, the Spanish giants have no interest in the 27-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder and are instead focusing their attention on signing Paul Pogba.

Corentin Tolisso had several big-name clubs clamouring for him when he departed Lyon in the summer of 2017 before joining Bayern Munich. In his maiden campaign, the French international made a strong start to life in Bavaria, quickly establishing himself as a regular for the Bundesliga giants.

However, injuries have halted his momentum significantly in the last three seasons, rendering the 27-year-old a mere backup option as a result. To date, Tolisso has made 102 times appearances for Bayern, chipping in with 19 goals and 13 assists in the process. And the player appears to be set to depart the Allianz Arena as a free agent, with a contract renewal not forthcoming from the Bundesliga champions.

His situation has alerted several clubs across Europe, with recent reports claiming that Tottenham have reignited their interest in Tolisso. And now, the French midfielder has been offered to Real Madrid.

Real Madrid have been reported to be in the market for a midfielder keeping next summer in mind. The eagerness to bolster the midfield unit for a second successive summer transfer window makes sense as well, considering Luka Modric is in the twilight of his glittering career.

In addition, Toni Kroos is approaching the final phase of his career, while Casemiro will turn 30 next year. So, it is clear that the first-choice midfield trio will start getting phased out gradually in the coming years, thereby necessitating the addition of a midfielder for Real Madrid.

Hence, it could be argued that Tolisso would be a viable target for Los Blancos. However, Real Madrid have no intention of making their move for the 27-year-old, with a Bosman move for Paul Pogba instead being a priority. With that in mind, it remains to be seen where Tolisso will end up next summer, as his Bayern Munich spell winds down.
