An eventful summer awaits Real Madrid. The Merengues could not have asked for a better conclusion to the 2023/2024 season having won the Champions League, but procedures are underway to ensure the team does not lose its quality next season.

While Kylian Mbappe has officially been declared a Madridista, Real Madrid are eyeing other players to bolster their ranks, namely Alphonso Davies and Leny Yoro.

At the same time, departures are also a strong possibility, considering the potential overbooking in the squad.

Granting play time to all the elite attackers in the squad promises to be a headache for coach Carlo Ancelotti next season, which has put Rodrygo’s future up in the air, particularly with the player possessing ample suitors.

Rodrygo amassing interest from the Premier League

Despite recent reports that cast doubt on Rodrygo’s future at Real Madrid due to his remarks, the Brazilian has stated that he has no intention of leaving.

Even so, according to Mundo Deportivo several Premier League teams are closely monitoring Rodrygo’s situation this summer.

The English teams that are most interested in signing the young forward this summer are Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal.

Rodrygo is a target for Guardiola’s City, but it appears that Liverpool would be the team willing to offer the most sum of money. Arsenal, too, are in the mix as they seek attacking reinforcements.

Real Madrid, on the other hand, does not plan for Rodrygo to leave; he has a deal through 2028. But since the summer is long and anything may happen in the world of football, no scenario can be ruled out.

After all, with Kylian Mbappe and Vinicius Jr. anticipated to monopolize the attacking positions in the lineup, Rodrygo may be compelled to seek an alternative option, especially with a player of his caliber warranting a more prominent role in the team.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
