Newcastle United has joined Real Madrid in the race to sign Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard in the summer transfer window, according to report in from Spanish outlet Defensa Central.
Newcastle United is expected to make a significant transfer in the summer under the new potential owners and the Magpies have set their sight on Real Madrid target Edouard, the highly-rated young Frenchman who has just won the 2019-20 SPFL title with Celtic after the league came to an abrupt end.
Edouard has been spectacular for the Bhoys and he has attracted a lot of attention from European top side.
The Mail reported last week that the Magpies are weighing up a move for the striker. The Hoops value the player at around £40m, but due to the present financial situation, a deal could be done for much less.
Real Madrid is also interested in the services of the youngster, Edouard has scored 27 goals and provided 19 assists in 45 games in all competitions this season.
