After Gayà decided to sign a contract extension with Valencia, Real Madrid now need to find a replacement for Fàbio Coentrao. The Portuguese left-back will leave the club this summer and Los Blancos were reportedly interested in signing David Alaba. However, Alex Sandro is now on Real's radar, according to Marca's front page.

Sandro is certainly a good player, one who also grew up as a player and developed in Santos, just like Danilo. He isn't as good as Real's newest right-back, but Sandro could be an interesting backup for Marcelo. Would FC Porto be willing to sell their two starting full-backs to Real Madrid this summer?

If Real Madrid's interest is real, expect the deal to go through, as Porto was being rumored as one of the potential destinations for Lucas Silva's loan. It seems that FC Porto and Real Madrid like to work together, so it will be interesting to see where this goes.
