Real Madrid are reportedly set to move for Boca Juniors midfielder Wilmar Barrios when the January window opens. The 25-year-old has never played club football outside South America but he could be handed the chance to move to the Los Blancos side in January.

Barrios, who went to the 2018 World Cup with Colombia, is a regular fixture in Boca’s midfield and reports suggest they are demanding 24million euros.
Tottenham have also expressed an interest in Barrios but it is understood he would rather head to the Spanish capital.
Real were expected to lose Luka Modric last summer and are keen to ensure they bring in some cover in case the Croatian does decide to move on in the near future.
