REAL MADRID are reportedly lining up a shock £50million swoop to bring Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney to the Bernabeu.
The Gunners defender was first linked with a switch to Spain in February as a possible replacement for Marcelo.

And it was then claimed earlier this month that Los Blancos have stepped up their pursuit of the Scotland international.
Now the Sunday Post have declared that the LaLiga leaders are weighing up a £50m bid for the ex-Celtic ace.
They state that the 24-year-old star has impressed Los Blancos chief scout Juni Calafat, who was originally sent to watch winger Bukayo Saka in action.
Carlo Ancelotti is already known to be a huge admirer of Tierney having failed to sign him in 2019 from Celtic.
Ancelotti had wanted the defender during his spell in charge of Napoli, but the player instead opted to link up with Arsenal in a £25m deal.
Speaking at the time, the ex-Chelsea gaffer heaped praise on Tierney’s qualities.
The Italian remarked: “He is a really good young left-back but he is a Celtic player.
“We are looking for a lot of players for this coming season but he is a Celtic player and we have two good left-backs. But honestly I can say he is a really good player.”

And Ancelotti could now turn his interest into a formal offer with it said Barcelona have entered the race to secure his services.
The Sunday Post also adds how Arsenal wouldn’t stand in his way of a move to Real – providing the price was right.
However it appears unlikely that the player will depart the Emirates after he penned a new long-term deal at the Emirates until 2026 last year.
He could even inherit the captain’s armband at Arsenal in the summer when current skipper Alexandre Lacazette leaves on a free transfer.
