Arsenal superstar Alexis Sanchez is reported to be very interested in discussing a move to Real Madrid.
According to Spanish media, Sanchez sees himself as just the player to replace Ronaldo if the Portuguese genius ends up leaving the Bernabeu.
Ronaldo is said to be very unhappy over the tax allegations being laid on him and wants to quit Spain, most probably for a move back to Manchester United.
This has promoted Sanchez to put on hold a potential transfer to Man City and add Real Madrid to his list of suitors
Sanchez has refused to sign a new contract with the Gunners and it is looking almost certain that he will be leaving the Emirates this summer.
Man City and German powerhouse Bayern Munich have been the club most linked with a move for the Chilean hotshot, however, they may find themselves out of the running if Real enter the race to sign Sanchez.
That said, it is hard to see Ronaldo leaving Madrid this summer which will scupper the hopes of the 28-year-old and boost the chances of City and Bayern respectively.
