RUMOURS: Real Madrid's bid for 'new Zlatan' rejected

The Spanish giants are confident of signing AIK striker Alexander Isak despite an initial approach being knocked back, with Chelsea, Bayern and Juventus all also keen

Real Madrid have had a bid for AIK striker Alexander Isak, dubbed ‘the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic’, rejected.

Swedish newspaper Expressen reports that the Allsvenskan side dismissed an €8 million bid immediately, though the Spanish giants are expected to return with an improved offer.

Bayern Munich, Chelsea, PSG, Juventus and West Ham are all understood to be tracking the 17-year-old, who will be drafted into Real’s Castilla team should a second approach prove successful.

Isak, who has 10 goals in 24 Allsvenskan outings this season, has reportedly visited Real’s training facilities.

AIK’s sporting director added: “There are a lot of rumours and speculation about Alexander right now. As usual, we do not comment on anything surrounding it.”
