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 youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
