Real Madrid are looking to get serious with their pursuit of some of football’s biggest young stars. Jude Bellingham appears close to signing this summer, but he will not be the last Galactico signing in the foreseeable future.

In Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies, Los Blancos are eyeing serious gunpowder in the windows to come. In fact, some reports suggest that the Merengues’ administration wish to sign all three in the coming transfer window.

According to reports from The Telegraph, Erling Haaland also has a dream to play for Real Madrid. The Norwegian star has it on his bucket list and could be another player Real Madrid scout closely in the years to come.

Haaland has taken the Premier League by storm after signing for Manchester City last June. Real Madrid were, in fact, equally well placed to sign him but the player chose a stint under Guardiola.

Since then, the 22-year-old has gone on to score a whopping 36 goals and has provided seven assists in just 33 league games. In the Champions League, he boasts of twelve goals and an assist in nine games.

The youngster has a contract with the Premier League side that runs until June 2027. However, a release clause will come into play in 2024, after which Real Madrid can snap him up for a fee of €220-€240 million.

Many at the Bernabeu see Haaland as the natural successor to Karim Benzema. With Real Madrid linked with Kylian Mbappe as well, however, one wonders if the misfortune of last time will strike again.

Haaland will be one of the centres of attention at the Etihad later tonight when Real Madrid take on Manchester City in the second leg of the UCL semifinal.

It will be an audition of sorts for the striker to convince the club he dreams of representing, though at this stage, he requires no such formality.

Real Madrid have drawn a comprehensive roadmap for the upcoming summer transfer window and the club’s squad planning ahead of the new season, but as far as the club’s ambition is concerned, the objective is to sign Kylian Mbappe in 2024.

Real Madrid are expected to revolve everything around the idea of signing the PSG superstar next year, reports Alfredo Matilla and Sergio Santos.

As per the two Spanish journalists, Florentino Perez is envisioning a Real Madrid strikeforce comprising Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, and Mbappe.

The report points out that Real Madrid view the Frenchman as a realistic target as they expect him not to accept the option of extending his contract at PSG until 2025 next year. His fallout with the PSG has been already well-documented this year.

With Les Parisien seemingly failing to live up to Mbappe’s ambition, it could only be a matter of time before he opts to leave the club. To that end, Real Madrid will be prepared, especially at the end of next season.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are starting to lose hope of signing Erling Haaland, because of the striker’s excellent relationship with Pep Guardiola which could keep him at Man City beyond 2024. Mbappe, therefore, has emerged as the top target for Los Blancos.

The potential strikeforce comprising Vinicius, Rodrygo and Mbappe could see Real Madrid operating in a 4-3-3 formation, with Mbappe playing at the centre. It must be noted that the club are also involved in the pursuit of Kai Havertz.

The German could be an intriguing addition to this strikeforce – potentially making Real Madrid one of the most feared attacking sides in Europe. However, it remains to be seen whether or not Los Blancos can actually manage to pull the signing of Mbappe or Havertz in the near future.
