Dean Windass believes that Dominic Calvert-Lewin is good enough to play for Real Madrid but reckons Everton will demand more than £50m for him.
According to The Sun, Madrid are interested in signing the England striker for that figure following Carlo Ancelotti’s recent return to the Spanish capital.
Do you think that Benitez going to Everton is a good idea?
No, they won't appreciate him
Yes, he will do a good job
Calvert-Lewin enjoyed an impressive record during the Italian’s reign at Goodison Park, scoring 60 percent of his Premier League goals under him – netting 24 times in 53 league appearances.
He also earned his first call-up to the England squad, and is currently in Gareth Southgate’s party for the Euros, although he’s made just one late substitute appearance to date.
Real Madrid currently have the world class Karim Benzema leading the line for them, but the Frenchman turns 34 in December, meaning the La Liga giants will need a replacement sooner rather than later.
Calvert-Lewin is yet to hit the 100-goal mark in his career, but when Windass was asked whether he could make the grade at Madrid, he exclusively told This is Futbol:
“Yes, he’s learning his trade well, the manager has got that bond with him. Big Dunc has obviously helped him, he’s probably listened to Dunc more than Ancelotti.
“But if Real Madrid come knocking, you’re talking for £50m, but I don’t think they would sell him for £50m.”
