With the legendary Toni Kroos hanging up his boots and Real Madrid captain Nacho Fernandez also foreseen to leave, Real Madrid are set to reshape their roster to maintain a competitive edge.

Fortifications in attack are already assumed, as Kylian Mbappe and Endrick are expected to don the Real Madrid jersey the next time they play a domestic match.

Meanwhile, the return of Rafa Marin and the potential arrival of Leny Yoro indicate the defensive department will also be enhanced.

While Real Madrid boasts several quality options in midfield, recruitments in the centre of the park cannot be ruled out either, especially with Kroos leaving a massive void.

Joshua Kimmich is a possibility

Kimmich’s current contract is slated to expire at the end of the 2024/25 campaign and thus talk of an exit has been gaining ground, especially with Bayern Munich enduring a tumultuous period.

Now, according to Tobi Altschäffl of BILD Real Madrid are one of the clubs that Joshua Kimmich ‘can imagine playing for’.

Kimmich recently locked horns against Los Blancos in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals. Although he tasted defeat, as the old saying goes: if you can’t beat them, join them.

The German midfielder is known to be an excellent controller with a diverse passing range and could help alleviate Kroos’ absence next season.

Moreover, Kimmich has, in the past, labelled Real Madrid as an ideal destination if he were to leave.

Although reports suggest that Kimmich and Ancelotti are not on the best of terms, it is likely that they will set aside their differences if a move materializes.

Barcelona’s interest could pose some problems

Furthermore, it must be noted that league rivals Barcelona are significantly interested in Kimmich’s services as they continue their search for a defensive midfielder.

While the Catalans’ financial situation puts them out of the race for now, if they can muster up the funds, Real Madrid will be compelled to face competition from Barcelona.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

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.
