Los Blancos have been linked with the likes of Manchester United's Paul Pogba and AC Milan's Franck Kessie, with head coach Carlo Ancelotti thought to be keen to boost his midfield options this summer.
As it stands, both Pogba and Kessie are available on free transfers, with their contracts due to expire at the end of June, but according to Defensa Central, the La Liga leaders are favouring a move for Gravenberch.
The 19-year-old has been in impressive form for his Dutch club this season, scoring once and providing four assists in 27 appearances in all competitions.
Ajax are attempting to sign the Netherlands international to a new contract, with his existing terms due to expire in June 2023, meaning that the club are not currently in a strong position to negotiate a high fee. body check tags ::
