23-year-old striker really liked by Real Madrid as ‘next striker’

Real Madrid have some of the best strikers in the world on their watchlist as potential replacements for Karim Benzema.

While the new arrival would theoretically play as a second fiddle in his first season, one would expect him to cover as the regular starter once the Frenchman leaves the club, presumably for the 2024-25 campaign.

Dusan Vlahovic is one of the most liked names on that front according to reports from AS. The Serbian International has been known for his lethal strike in front of goal for a few years now, and his high level with Juventus has only gone on to show that he can perform under pressure.

Los Blancos have a good relationship with the Old Lady and no hurdles are expected in the negotiations. After all, Juventus are prepared to part ways with the forward in June given their economic situation.

Vlahovic has enjoyed a special season with Juventus in 2022-23, scoring ten times and providing two assists in just 26 Serie A appearances. He also has four goal contributions in the UEFA Europa League including a goal in the Italians’ semi-final against Sevilla earlier this week.

The Serbian’s ability to maintain a high level and output in a relatively dysfunctional Juventus side goes on to show his ability to make a difference irrespective of those around him. Needless to say, his killer instinct and intelligence on the ball would make him a great fit under Carlo Ancelotti.

At just 23 years of age, Vlahovic provides both the quality and longevity Real Madrid desire of their new striker. The only question for Los Blancos to answer, however, is the situation with Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.

If Florentino Perez wishes to sign either of the young phenoms next June, it would not be the best idea to splash the cash on Vlahovic this summer. There is, thus, a bigger decision that must be made on that front, especially given the other clubs lurking around the Serbian star.

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
