REAL MADRID have given the go ahead to pursue a summer deal for Liverpool star Emre Can, according to stunning reports in Spain.
Can’s future at Liverpool remains uncertain with the player yet to sign a new deal.
The German midfielder is out of contract in the summer and negotiations between the player’s representative and club have hit an impasse.
Bayern Munich along with Juventus and Manchester City have been credited with an interest.
Reports last week suggested Dani Ceballos would hold the key to a deal being struck for Can.
Florentino Perez is thought to be keen to revamp his midfield and Isco has been linked with a move away from the club.
Now Spanish outlet Don Balon suggests Perez has given the green light for a deal for Can to be struck.
As far as Ceballos is concerned, the report suggests Perez will include a buy-back option in his clause.
Can, meanwhile, who has been out of action since suffering a back injury in the 4-0 win over Watford could be back for the Champions League final should the Reds get there.
Jurgen Klopp said: “I said it will be difficult for him to play again this season.
“That’s when our season was ending mid-May. Since then Emre has developed well.
“He is in good hands at the moment. He’s not overly happy with the situation but is positive.
“I’m not sure if it’s true he won’t be out for the season now. He’s definitely out for Bournemouth.”
