Real Madrid prioritising new centre-back ahead of January window?

A report claims that Real Madrid will go all out to sign a new central defender in 2019 after failing to strengthen at the back during the summer transfer window.

Real Madrid have prioritised signing a new central defender following their slow start to the season, according to a report.

The reigning European champions failed to strengthen in the heart of defence during the summer transfer window, leaving no real cover for Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos.

Spanish outlet Marca claims that Madrid are now convinced that another alternative is required, with Jesus Vallejo and the versatile Nacho Fernandez currently in reserve.

Los Blancos supposedly attempted to sign Jose Gimenez and Lucas Hernandez from rivals Atletico Madrid in the summer, while Samuel Umtiti of Barcelona was also a surprise target, only to miss out on all three men.

The report suggests that Paris Saint-Germain's Marquinhos remains an attractive proposition for Madrid, but the French champions are unlikely to do business with their Champions League rivals.
