Real Madrid best placed to sign Bundesliga sensation in 2025

Despite Bayer Leverkusen’s exceptional season, the club might just be able to hold on to their star figures in the coming summer.

Xabi Alonso has already announced his desire to continue in the Bundesliga next season whereas Florian Wirtz, too, should remain in Leverkusen.

However, Leverkusen’s retentions this summer can be perceived as a lull before the storm, with Die Werkself in contention to lose multiple stars in the summer of 2025.

Real Madrid best placed to sign Wirtz

To that end, a recent report from Sport BILD (h/t Madrid Xtra) has claimed that Real Madrid remain the firm favourites to sign Florian Wirtz in the summer of 2025.

The newly-crowed European champions have been closely tracking Wirtz’s progress at Leverkusen and believe he can be an ideal long-term investment.

There should be no shortage of competition for Wirtz, though, with Bayern Munich also keen on the German international’s services.

But the report states that Real Madrid are best-placed to sign Wirtz, perhaps not in the coming summer but surely in 2025 when the club should have the financial firepower to complete yet another Galactico signing.

Xabi Alonso to follow?

The report further states that Florian Wirtz could be accompanied by Xabi Alonso, as far as a move to Real Madrid is concerned.

This is hardly surprising as Real Madrid appear to have crafted a meticulous plan to replace Carlo Ancelotti, even when the Italian has just helped the club secure their 15th UCL title.

Ancelotti’s contract at Real Madrid expires in 2026. But should Real Madrid, now revamped with the addition of Kylian Mbappe, underperform next season, Ancelotti could face immense pressure.

Xabi Alonso, to that end, has emerged as an ideal long-term replacement for the Italian mastermind and could very well end up leading the next stage of Real Madrid’s project.

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.
