European champions Real Madrid are set to beat the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the pursuit of AIK youngster Alexandre Isak.

The 17-year-old, who is already a full international with Sweden, has been likened to Zlatan Ibrahimovic for his style of play.

According to Spanish source Marca, Los Blancos are confident of securing a deal for the teenager, who is currently valued at around £15m.

Zinedine Zidane's will cough up an initial £8.5m for the striker with an additional package likely to be settled as performance-based bonuses.

The Spanish outfit are seeking to settle a transfer agreement before the end of the month with both the Blues and Red Devils hot on the trail of the marksman.

Should the deal go through, Isak will link up with Real Madrid in the summer when their transfer ban is concluded.
