Real Madrid are going to have to better their offer by £18million if they are to land Roma goalkeeper Alisson.
The Spanish giants have earmarked the Brazilian as one of their main transfer targets this summer as they look for competition to current No 1 Keylor Navas.
And according to Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, they have moved a step closer to doing that by agreeing personal terms with Alisson.

Mundo Deportivo claim his agent has agreed a five-year deal with an option for a sixth at Real
They claim that his agent Ze Maria has agreed personal terms for a five-year deal with an option for a sixth.
However, the one sticking point for the move being concluded is the fee.
Real have made a £52m bid, with £4.4m of that in bonuses, but Roma are holding out for a £70m transfer fee, Mundo Deportivo adds.
Alisson is under contract at Roma until 2021 and remains a target for Premier League duo Liverpool and Chelsea.
Speaking about his situation last weekend, the 25-year-old was keen to resolve his situation before Brazil start their World Cup campaign against Switzerland in Group E on Sunday night.

‘I believe and I hope that everything will be resolved before the start of the World Cup,’ he said following Brazil’s 3-0 friendly win over Austria on Sunday.
‘To be honest, I left everything in the hands of my agents.
‘If it’s not resolved before the World Cup, then it will be discussed after it because my head will be focused only on Brazil.
‘There are many possibilities on which we are working, but always together with Roma and with respect to my club. We will see what will happen this week.’
Alisson kept 22 clean sheets in 49 outings for Roma in Serie A and the Champions League last season, helping them to the semi-finals of the European competition against the odds.
He is likely to be Brazil’s No 1 when they begin their quest for a sixth World Cup triumph.
