Real Madrid stepping up pursuit of Emre Can

Real Madrid stepping up pursuit of Emre Can

Can is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: "Of course, I have to think about my footballing future".

'I haven't signed for any other club, I'm just focused on this season.

In his first season at Merseyside, the midfielder made 27 appearances in the Premier League as he was sidelined for the beginning of the season with an injury.

Liverpool's German utility man has been attracting a lot of interest from several clubs following his decision to decline the offer of a new contract with the Reds.

"We want to finish in second place in the Premier League, we're in the Champions League quarter-finals and we want to progress".

Can arrived in Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen in July 2014 for a fee of £9.75 million. He has netted three goals including two in his last five league games for the Reds.

He has improved his game in the air as well, as he wins two aerial duels per game. There have even been reports that the deal with the Turin giants had been already struck, but Can has firmly denied that.

However, Can has insisted that is not the case and he is purely focused on performing for Liverpool FC between now and the end of the season.

The German will be a free agent in the summer when his contract at Anfield expires.

Juventus looks to be the better fit for him as the chances of him straight away forcing his way to the starting lineup are better when compared to Real Madrid since in Spain, he will have to face competition from the established trio of Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos which could reduce his game time eliminating him to the fringes.
