Reports in Spain are claiming that Argentine sensation
However, another report is claiming that River Plate are still hoping to sign the player to another deal inclusive of a higher release clause, while Atletico Madrid are also looking to muscle in.
River still trying to get that new deal agreed for Exequiel Palacios & now reports of @realmadrid joining the race. @CLMerlo reports that Madrid are willing to pay €20M (thats €5M above the release clause), offer a 5-year deal & leave Palacios at River until June pic.twitter.com/nrVVKCwFkQ

The player’s current release clause is believed to be €15m, €5m less than what it is claimed that Madrid have tabled, with the club looking to tie the South American down to a five-year deal.
Los Blancos also hope to have everything agreed and signed by December.
Meanwhile, the Bernabeu outfit are struggling on the pitch and are likely on the brink of firing manager Julen Lopetegui.
