Real Madrid might face a significant setback in their attempt to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Florian Wirtz, as according to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are also interested in acquiring the young attacking midfielder.

The report mentions that Barcelona’s sporting director, Deco, is planning a move for the 21-year-old in the summer of 2025. 

This is the same time Real Madrid are aiming to secure Wirtz, although fortunately for Los Blancos, Barcelona’s ability to go after Wirtz depends heavily on their financial management.

Barcelona have done their homework

The report adds that if Barcelona can comply with the financial rules, specifically the 1:1 rule, Wirtz will become their top target in the summer of 2025. 

As for Deco, he is said to be very fond of Wirtz, not just because of his performance this season, but because he has been following him for a while.

Barcelona have collected a lot of information about Wirtz and believe that, unless something unexpected happens, he will stay at Leverkusen this summer. 

Real Madrid not troubled despite competition

On the other hand, Real Madrid are considered to be in the best position to sign Wirtz in 2025. 

Various reports have linked Wirtz to Real Madrid for the upcoming season, and there is speculation that Real Madrid might sign their current coach, Xabi Alonso, as a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti. 

This connection could make Madrid a more attractive destination for Wirtz. 

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are also very interested in Wirtz and other financially strong clubs such as Manchester City, Liverpool, and Paris Saint-Germain have also shown interest. 

In summary, while Real Madrid are currently seen as the frontrunner to sign Wirtz in 2025, they will face stiff competition from Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Paris Saint-Germain. 

The outcome will likely depend on various factors, including financial management and strategic moves by the involved clubs.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
