Lille coach Christophe Galtier faced the cameras on Friday ahead of his side’s Coupe de France round of 64 clash against Raon l’Etape and one of the subjects he touched on was speculation linking three of his players with a possible move to Real Madrid.
Spanish sports daily Marca has claimed that Los Blancos are keeping tabs on Nigeria international Victor Osimhen and two of his teammates, Gabriel dos Santos and Boubakary Soumaré.
Osimhen has been one of the revelations of the Ligue 1 this season and several clubs in Europe are ready to make a move for him.
Reacting to the rumours, Galtier told reporters I don’t know if they talked about it in the locker room. I didn’t get any feedback on that.
“On a personal level, I’m focused on the competition. The transfer window will end on the 31st. I’ll see what will happen.
“I don’t mind . I don’t get a sense of pride either. The media may be the news. I didn’t talk about it with my president or with Luis Campos. That doesn’t interest me”.
Barcelona and Premier League trio Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Liverpool have been credited with an interest in Osimhen.
