15 years ago

A representative of Ghana full-back, Daniel Opare says a move to Real Madrid could be finalised by the end of January.

The Spanish champions have been reported to be closing in on a deal for the 17 year-old AshantiGold defender, who was one of the star performers for Ghana at last year’s FIFA Under-17 World Cup.

"We hope that the negotiations for the transfer of Opare will be finalised at the end of January.

"There are some subjects that need to be solved, like his visa," Jones Abu Alhassan, a representative of the youngster said in an interview.

Real's international scout Julen Lopetegui is reported have held talks with the player’s representatives about an end-of-season move to Spain.

Opare is part of Ghana’s 27-member playing team for the pre-African Cup of Nations training camp in the United Arab Emirates.
