Real Madrid are in for a summer of change. There is uncertainty over the future of some of the old guards, whereas the club are expected to bring in Kylian Mbappe, along with Endrick.

However, aside from shoring up their ranks in the offensive unit, Real Madrid are also on the lookout for defensive reinforcements.

The fullback unit, in particular, has emerged as a point of concern for Los Blancos, with uncertainty looming over the future of Dani Carvajal, Lucas Vazquez, and Ferland Mendy.

Real Madrid considering move for Achraf Hakimi

It is no secret that Real Madrid have been eyeing a move for a new right-back for quite some time now. Over the past 12 months, they have been linked with moves for Reece James, among others.

According to The Athletic, Real Madrid have now set their sights on Achraf Hakimi, a former academy product, who is regarded as one of the finest fullbacks in Europe.

Soon after his two-year loan spell at Dortmund, the defender earned a big-money move to Inter Milan in the summer of 2020. After a mixed spell in Milan, Hakimi ultimately joined PSG.

Can Real Madrid bring back Hakimi?

Bringing back Achraf Hakimi to Real Madrid certainly won’t be an easy task for Los Blancos.

The Moroccan international is valued at around €65 million by Transfermarkt. He also has a contract at PSG that does not expire until 2026.

PSG are also keen on renewing the deal for Hakimi. Should the Moroccan opt to not renew his contract, however, Real Madrid could be in with a chance to bring back their former player.

However, it is important to note that Real Madrid will not study the Hakimi acquisition before 2025 or 2026.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid remain in the race to sign their other fullback target Alphonso Davies, who has reportedly agreed a verbal agreement with Los Blancos.

‘Will have to put my feelings aside’ – Bellingham on facing Borussia Dortmund in UCL final

It has been a special debut season for Jude Bellingham at Real Madrid.

Since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth €103 million, plus add-ons, last summer, the 20-year-old sensation has become an instant hit at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Despite his form declining a bit in the second half of the season, Bellingham has racked up returns of 23 goals and 12 assists from 41 games in all competitions.

A special game for Bellingham

Having won La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup, Bellingham now has the chance to end the season in the most epic ways possible by lifting the UEFA Champions League, against his former club, in his homeland.

As such, Saturday’s UCL final at Wembley, against Dortmund, is set to be a special one for the young phenom, and he acknowledged as much during an interview today.

“It’s a very special game for me but I’ll have to put feelings aside. It’s been a great season, they’ve made me feel very welcome and I’ve enjoyed playing football with them,” said Bellingham, as quoted by Mundo Deportivo.

When asked if he had been in touch with any of his former Dortmund teammates ahead of Saturday’s showpiece event, Bellingham replied:

“I’ve spoken to Sancho, we said we’d meet there. He took me under his wing when I came to Dortmund and that meant a lot to me.”

On how Real Madrid can win the game

Earlier today, Carlo Ancelotti was asked if he had sought any information from Bellingham to prepare a strategy to beat Borussia Dortmund.

The midfielder himself was asked by the media as to how Real Madrid can get past his former club at Wembley this weekend, to which he replied:

“To win we will have to play at our maximum level, if we are at that level it is very difficult for our opponents. The staff are sure to do a great job analysing Dortmund, I trust them 100 per cent.”

Stressing how it is a dream for him to win the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid, Bellingham remarked:

“Winning the Champions League is the reason I’m here, I always dreamed of playing for this team, and this team is linked to the Champions League. I want to be a small part of their history.”
