Danilo is set to become Real Madrid's first signing for the 2015-2016 season. As Managing Madrid reported this Thursday, the signing is all but done. However, news from Spain say that Los Blancos are ready to make yet another signing that would improve Real's depth in the offensive line. Marca reports that Real Madrid are ready to sign Villarreal striker Luciano Vietto by paying his €20 million release clause.

According to Marca, Vietto has been offered to Real Madrid twice, and Villarreal will surely be trying to increase his buyout clause with a contract extension. Chicharito Hernández will leave Real Madrid this next summer, and Los Blancos will then be looking to sign a backup striker who can fill Benzema's shoes.

The Argentinian attacker is certainly a great prospect that would be available for a reasonable price, so this might be a good chance for Real Madrid to sign a quality reserve who would improve the roster.

Vietto's agent Jorge Cyterszpiler confirmed Real Madrid's interest in the player this past week.
