Real Madrid tempted by €18m release clause for Pablo Sarabia

The LaLiga giants could be open to strengthening in January

Real Madrid are reportedly deciding whether to trigger the release clause of Sevilla midfielder Pablo Sarabia.

The 26-year-old has been a standout performer for Los Hispalenses this season, directly contributing to 12 goals in 15 LaLiga appearances.

According to AS, Sarabia will be available for €18m and is already attracting interest from a host of top European clubs.

The Madrid-native started his career with Los Blancos and even made a Copa del Rey appearance before joining Getafe in 2011.

According to Andalusian news outlet Estadio Deportivo, there is “panic” in Seville over the release clause with just one year left on his current deal.

Any deal is unlikely to happen until the summer but Real could be forced into action with Champions League sides circling.
