Real Madrid considering a move for Liverpool’s Johnson

Real Madrid are considering making a bid to sign Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson and capitalise on the Premier League club’s delay in offering a new contract to the 29-year-old, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Johnson’s contract does not expire until the end of next season, but Liverpool’s delay in offering an extension has led his future to appear uncertain, and Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has been made aware of the situation.

Liverpool began negotiations with Johnson for a new deal over a year ago, but suspended talks until this summer, with the club’s owners, the Fenway Sports Group, seemingly unwilling to offer lucrative terms to a player who will be over the age of 30 when they come into effect.

Ancelotti is searching for a new right-back to bring to the Bernabeu to replace current first-choice Alvaro Arbeloa - who also moved to the Spanish giants from Liverpool - and is weighing up a £5m offer for Johnson, who has also deputised for the injured Jose Enrique at left-back this season.

Rafael Benitez brought Johnson to Liverpool back in the summer of 2009, and he has gone on to make 164 appearances, scoring eight goals as well as a penalty in the 2012 League Cup final triumph over Cardiff City.
