Real Madrid have identified some of the areas of concern ahead of the summer transfer window which they want to reinforce with signings.

With the forward line understaffed, Kylian Mbappe is their priority target, with the Frenchman expected to leave PSG at the end of the season on a free transfer. He has chosen Madrid as his next destination, which has been made clear by the media time and again.

Other than Mbappe, Madrid will also look to pursue Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich. The Bavarians have refused to accept his salary demands of €20 million, which likely means he will leave this summer, with his contract expiring in 2025.

While these two potions are a priority, Madrid will also look for a right-back, probably for next summer. But if finances permit, they will also try to sign a centre-back after an injury crisis this summer.

They have identified Lille’s Yeny Loro as their chosen centre-back, as per a report from MARCA.

Lille demand €100 million

Real Madrid are very impressed with Yoro and do not want to let the Frenchman escape from their transfer radar.

His contract expires in the summer of 2025, but Lille are determined to retain his services the foreseeable future. And to avoid any untimely exit, they seem to be asking for €100 million for his signing.

Madrid will, of course not, shell out nine digits for a player on the last 16 months of his contract. They are hoping to complete his signing for around €30 million, and could even wait until 2025 to sign him on a free transfer.

Yoro wants Real Madrid

Lille are clear that they will not sell Yoro to PSG, who are interested in the player, and the €100 million price tag is largely an attempt to halt their pursuit.

Luckily for Madrid, Yoro wants to sign for Real Madrid, Lille are also aware about his desire, but are refusing to negotiate as of now.

Madrid will likely try to sign him in the summer, but could wait until the summer of 2025, especially with Nacho likely to sign another one-year contract extension.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
