In a season riddled by injuries, Real Madrid sit at the pinnacle of the league standings with a solid five-point lead. The men in white may be without their best goalkeeper and best defender this season, but that has not stopped them from going on a rampant run across all competitions.

Heading into the summer, the squad is only set to get stronger. Florentino Perez is targeting at least two big signings in addition to bringing in a new centre-back.

Closer to their objectives

One of their primary targets for the summer is Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies who has established himself as a quality left-back in recent years.

The Canadian superstar provides more attacking firepower than the likes of Ferland Mendy and Fran Garcia and thus becomes an ideal option for Real Madrid’s style of football.

According to journalist Carlos Carpio of MARCA (via RubenMartin on YouTube), Davies has decided that he wishes to play for Real Madrid next season.

The left-back, whose market value stands at €70 million, will likely not sign any form of extension with Bayern Munich despite his contract running out next summer, and will thus push for an exit.

Los Blancos must now sit down with the Bavarians and reach an agreement over the player’s transfer. The operation will not be cheap by any means, but the fact that he has just one year remaining on his contract plays in Real Madrid’s favour.

The Spanish source once again reiterates that the Merengues can rope in both Davies and Kylian Mbappe next summer. Their financial status would permit the two big-name signings concurrently.

Bayern are relentless

Despite Real Madrid’s overt efforts to sign Davies, Bayern Munich refuse to give up hopes of convincing the player of a renewal. After all, he is fundamental to their plans and losing him will significantly dampen their attacking prowess.

The two parties have been in negotiations for a long time now, with Davies reportedly demanding €13 million per season to even consider Bayern’s offer.

Needless to say, that figure is a little steep on the Germans’ wage bill, thus creating a difference between the two parties.

Real Madrid’s best lineup next season with Kroos retiring, Mbappe and Endrick joining

It is set up to be a transformative summer for Real Madrid. After the UEFA Champions League final has concluded and the grand showdown finally has a victor, the Merengues are expected to undergo a squad revamp.

Indeed, the Santiago Bernabeu is preparing to welcome several high-profile signings, while also bidding farewell to some beloved Madrid legends.

Considering the potential arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, as well as Toni Kroos’ recent retirement, here is how Real Madrid could shape up next season:


Having made a long-awaited return from injury, Thibaut Courtois is anticipated to guard Real Madrid’s goal next season once more.

The Belgian goalie has already started featuring in the starting XI and is expected to play against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final, too.

As such, his place for next season is hardly in doubt. However, unlike previous seasons, he will face much fiercer competition from Andriy Lunin, who has enjoyed a stellar campaign.


Fortifications in the defensive line remain high on Real Madrid’s priority list in the upcoming summer transfer window. However, even with the given options the Royal Whites boast assurance and grit in their back-line.

The likely occupants on the flanks would be Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy, who have both produced great exhibitions throughout the campaign.

Carvajal is known to punish defensive lines and on the defensive end, his anticipation of forwards has been equally appreciable.

Meanwhile, Mendy’s resurgence this season has earned him immense faith from the coaching staff, as his defensive aptitude continues to set him apart.

In the centre-back positions, Real Madrid are expected to rely on the dependable figures of Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao.

Real Madrid consider Rudiger to be indispensable owing to his front-footed style and the important role he has had to play amidst the injury crisis. Similarly, Militao is valued by the team as he proceeds to regain match fitness after recovering from a long-term injury.

Thankfully for Real Madrid, their succession stage had begun a while ago and they have ample options to trust in the center of the park.

With Aurelien Tchouameni protecting the base of midfield, Real Madrid will possess security and deep progression.

Ahead, occupying the interior midfield positions, Fede Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga are well-suited to provide a combination of energy off the ball and threat in possession.

And to put the cherry on top, Jude Bellingham’s place as the number 10 behind the two strikers would certify his status as a pivotal playmaker and scorer in the team’s setup.

However, he is adept at making third-man runs and connecting the midfield with the offence and could play deeper to not only make up for Kroos’ absence but also facilitate more options up front.


Real Madrid’s offensive department is where the largest reform is expected to take place.

Kylian Mbappe’s goalscoring instincts need little introduction by now and he is thus anticipated to be fielded as the striker.

Vinicius Jr. is expected to take up the position as a secondary striker drifting from the left, something he has become quite accustomed to this season.

It is worth noting that Endrick could also play a part by either replacing Vinicius off the bench and playing off Mbappe.

It remains to be seen how many men forward Ancelotti will commit to but the presence of Mbappe and Vinicius seems set in stone, given their huge profiles and status in world football. How the manager uses Rodrygo Goes will be interesting to see as well.

All in all, considering Ancelotti’s proficiency in profiling players, Madrid fans can expect to see these stars play in favourable environments.
