German winger open to joining Real Madrid in the summer – report
Earlier this week, Real Madrid announced the signing of Antonio Rudiger as their first acquisition for the summer. That, one would assume, is the beginning of a long and hectic transfer window for Los Blancos.
With the signing of one German international completed, the club now turns its attention to another player of the same nationality. Serge Gnabry has been a target for Carlo Ancelotti’s side for several months now, and negotiations are expected to catch pace in the coming weeks.
According to reports from Diario AS, Real Madrid are continuously monitoring the situation of Gnabry at Bayern Munich. It is said that the player is ready to make the move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The 26-year-old had a successful 2021-22 season with Bayern Munich. In 34 league appearances, he scored 14 goals and provided five assists.
Despite his impressive form, the player seems far from a renewal at Munich. He is out of contract next summer, but a disparity between the two parties over his wages has caused contractual talks to collapse.
Real Madrid are not the only top European side pursuing Gnabry’s transfer. Arsenal and Liverpool are also said to be keeping tabs on his situation, too.
From Bayern Munich’s perspective, the club are willing to part ways with the player if an offer of €40 million is made. The figure would not be difficult for Los Blancos to reach, especially given that they have the money leftover from Kylian Mbappe’s failed transfer.
With the transfer window opening in less than a week, one can expect rapid developments in Gnabry’s situation.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar
There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.
Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.
The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.
To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.
Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.
A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.
It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.
Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
