Real Madrid will reportedly turn to Jadon Sancho as Manchester City refuses to sell Raheem Sterling.
Bernabeu-Bigwigs was considering putting together a £ 70m package plus Gareth Bale for Sterling, but City was not about to lose the English star.
As a result, they will revive their interest in his international colleague.
Real wanted to sign Sancho from Manchester City in 2017, but was beaten by Borussia Dortmund.
The 19-year-old winger has since turned out to be one of the hottest prospects in European football after winning in the Bundesliga.
Loud Daily mail They have started to lay the foundation for a deal next summer.
Dortmund has resigned itself to losing Sancho at the end of the season, but knows that they can trigger an auction for his signature.
Manchester United are a big fan of Sancho, but the prospect of missing out on Champions League football is likely to speak against them.
Also interested is Paris Saint-Germain, who could be tasked with the replacement of Neymar.
Sancho is likely to charge a fee of more than £ 100m, and City has introduced an option that fits in with any offer Dortmund received in the deal with which it moved to Germany two years ago.
If Real succeeds, Sancho would most likely replace Gareth Bale, who is still available even though he has returned to Zinedine Zidane's plans for the first team.
The Welshman has been repeatedly linked to a move back to the Premier League, but will not move to City as part of a move with Sterling.
They do not intend to sell the forward while Bale is not searched.
Sterling is based in Etihad Stadium, but has made it clear that he wants to play abroad sometime in his career.
He said GQ : "Now that's it, Manchester, I love it, I love it here, this is one of the best clubs in the world and I'm here in the long run.
"But you just do not know what's going to happen in the future, I'm still young and, like I said, I love every minute.
"Ever since I was a kid, it has always been my dream to play abroad, so it would be nice to finish training one day and go home and sit in your backyard and have something to eat.
"I would have to constantly see where it is at least 17C or 18C."
