PSG’s mega star Kylian Mbappe is all set to join Real Madrid this summer, putting an end to a prolonged saga that stretched over many years.

However, the Merengues appear to be keeping tabs on other stars plying their trade for the Parisians, too.

Indeed, the name of Achraf Hakimi has been gaining traction, who interestingly is a former Madrid player and a good friend of Mbappe.

Hakimi could reunite with his boyhood club

According to AS, Achraf Hakimi’s name has been in discussions in the Madrid camp.

His contract with PSG will expire in 2026, and there have been no talks of a renewal as of now.

In fact, Moroccan full-back, who views Real Madrid as the club of his dreams and where he began his career, has always been open to negotiating.

Reuniting with old acquaintances and having more assurance regarding play time could serve to act as an incentive for the 25-year-old full-back.

Real Madrid could be in the market for a right-back soon

Los Blancos presently are content with the performances of Lucas Vazquez and Dani Carvajal in the right-back position and intend to count on the pair next season as well.

While Vazquez’s contract expires this summer, the Spaniard is expected to be awarded an extension very soon.

However, at the age of 32, both players are nearing the final stages of their careers, and Real Madrid will need a young option to eventually walk in their footsteps.

As such, the signing of Hakimi on a reduced fee next year or a free transfer in 2026 would not only bolster the team’s quality; but also ensure a smooth generational shift.

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

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.
