La Liga giants open the door for defender’s exit.
Arsenal and Liverpool have been given a boost in their pursuit of Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao after Real Madrid offered them the chance to snap him up in the upcoming summer transfer window, according to The Metro.

The Premier League duo, alongside Manchester United, have been linked with a move for the Portuguese international since last summer, and had been hoping to snap him up in January given that he has made just two starts for Real this season.
However, despite him failing to book his exit from the club last month, coach Carlo Ancelotti will grant him a move away over the summer.
Madrid have thus offered him to both Arsenal and Liverpool with the hope of securing him a fast exit once the season draws to a close.
With his best form still ahead of him combined with Real’s desire to sell, he could prove to be a bargain for either side.
