It is no secret that Real Madrid are the mentality kings of the football world. The men in white have the ability to come back from even the lowest of lows, and their primary weapon for the same is the belief in their abilities.

ABC Deportes (h/t Madrid Xtra) report that there is full belief in the Real Madrid dressing room that they can repeat last year’s feat and win both La Liga and the UEFA Champions League. Needless to say, a team motivated to win the two big competitions also has its eye on the Copa del Rey to go one better than last season.

Last season, Carlo Ancelotti’s side won in both the domestic league and in Europe to take home the coveted double. Considering that they still have the core of last season with some quality additions like Aurelien Tchouameni and Antonio Rudiger, their immense self-belief comes as no surprise.

Los Blancos currently sit on top of the La Liga standing with 32 of a possible 36 points. Further, they topped the table on their UCL group too courtesy of a dominant 5-1 win over Celtic yesterday.

The upcoming FIFA World Cup will have a big role to play in deciding the fate of the team across all competitions for the big tournament will take a hit on the players both physically and mentally. Nevertheless, if one could put their money on a team holding their own under a mountain of pressure – it would undoubtedly be Real Madrid.

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.
