Real Madrid are planning for a blockbuster summer transfer window in the coming months, with several star signings expected to light up the Santiago Bernabeu. While negotiations with certain targets like Kylian Mbappe are close to being completed, some targets remain in the scouting phase. One such young talent is Moussa Diaby.

The Bayer Leverkusen forward has taken Bundesliga by storm this season, leading the charge for his team. He has recorded 15 goals and nine assists across all competitions for the German side, making him one of the most sought after forwards in world football.

Real Madrid see the 22-year-old as the missing piece in their puzzle. Los Blancos wish to reinforce their squad with dynamic wingers, and Diaby is one of the best in the business.

According to reports from L’Equipe, as relayed via Fichajes, Bayer Leverkusen have slapped a price of €100 million against his name to deter any interested parties.

The German side do not want to lose their star for a low price, and the nine-digit figure is seen as a fair price in the inflated market.

It would be difficult to imagine Real Madrid shelling out such a large amount for one player when they have multiple positions to reinforce. Moreover, the arrival of Mbappe, coupled with Vinicius Jr’s incredible form, may make Diaby’s signing less of a necessity for Florentino Perez’s team.

In 23 league starts this season, the Frenchman averages two shots and 1.6 key passes per game. He has created ten big chances and missed three during the same duration.

Real Madrid signed Endrick from Palmeiras back in December 2022 itself in a deal that could reach €60 million including add-ons.

However, since he was only 16 years old at the time, the striker had to continue in Brazil. Set to turn 18 on July 21, the centre-forward will finally be eligible to move to Europe.

In 82 appearances for Palmeiras, Endrick has scored 21 goals and set up four more. The striker also has three goals in ten matches for Brazil.

Endrick will be presented formally at the Santiago Bernabeu on July 27 after he undergoes medicals and signs his contract with club president Florentino Perez.

After the presentation, Endrick will speak to the media in the press room at the Santiago Bernabeu.
