Real Madrid reject second offer for Lin Liangming

Real Madrid are yet to really stamp their authority on this summer's transfer window.

After being priced out of a move for Paul Pogba and then beaten by Barcelona to the signature of Andre Gomes, Florentino Perez and Zinedine Zidane have been forced to witness an uncharacteristically quiet post and pre-season.

And if they didn't have enough to deal with trying to improve a Champions League-winning squad, their resolve is also being put to the test in regards to keeping hold of one of their most promising youngsters.

Lin Liangming moved to the Bernabeu in 2015 to become just the second Asian player to sign for Madrid and although he is yet to make an appearance for Los Blancos, the 19-year-old is a man in demand.

Chinese Super League giants Hebei China Fortune have now had two bids of €7 million and €10 million rejected by Madrid's hierarchy for the left winger, according to the Mirror.

Liangming spent the 2015/16 season playing for Madrid's Under-19 team under the watchful guidance of club legend Guti but it would appear his services are now desired back in his home country.

Competing in what has become one of the wealthiest football divisions in the world, Fortune are not afraid to splash the cash and already have stars such as Ezequiel Lavezzi and Gervinho in their ranks.

The Chinese side clearly think Lianming can thrive in the Super League as their offer is 33 times bigger than the €300,000 fee Madrid paid Guangzhou R&F last year.

And Lianming isn't the only Madrid starlet who could be on his way out of the Spanish capital, with Martin Odegaard also rumoured to be on the move.

The latest reports from Spain suggest the Norwegian wonderkid will be playing in the Bundesliga next season on a one-year loan spell.

The deal is set to ironed out once Zidane's men return from their pre-season tour of America but at the moment it looks like more players will be leaving than arriving at the Bernabeu between now and the start of the campaign.
