Real Madrid just announced on their site that they reached an agreement with Manchester City over the transfer of Brazilian right-back Danilo, who joined Real Madrid two years ago.

Manchester City will reportedly pay around €30 million for the defender, meaning that Madrid lost €5 million with him over these two years. It’s clear that he did not delivered what was expected from him and ended up being a reserve for Carvajal, who earned his status as an undisputed starter fairly soon.

Either way, this move hurts Real Madrid’s depth. Carvajal is the team’s only pure choice at the right-back spot now and even though Nacho can replace him when needed, Los Blancos could be in trouble if Carvajal suffers a long injury. Reports from the Spanish press suggest that Madrid could be interested in the promising Odriozola, although this will not be a priority now that Alvaro Morata is gone.
