Real Madrid are preparing for a revolutionary summer this transfer market after losing several players already. Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard announced their departure from the club on the same day.

However, this was followed by the big one as Karim Benzema also decided to join Al-Ittihad on a free transfer on one of the biggest contracts in football history.

With four forwards, including their captain, gone, Madrid are in the market looking for a striker. They have been linked with several names so far, and it seems more names will join this transfer list.

According to Florian Plettenburg (h/t Madrid Universal), Romelu Lukaku could be offered to Madrid this summer transfer window.

Currently on loan at Inter Milan, Lukaku is expected to return to Chelsea in the summer, where his future is still in doubt. The Belgian played his last match for the Serie A giants yesterday in the Champions League final, losing 1-0 against Manchester City.

His return tenure with Inter has been promising over the second part of the season, though. With ten goals and six assists in 25 league appearances, he had the second-highest goal contributions for the club after Lautaro Martinez.

Madrid are also exploring other options in the market, with their eyes set on Harry Kane as their number one priority. His price tag, though, is set at upwards of €100 million, and that is if Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy allows offers.

They have also been linked with Roberto Firmino as well, but the Brazilian will not be their first-choice option in attack should the transfer go through. Joselu of Espanyol is also close to joining the club.

Apart from this, they have completed the signings of Fran Garcia from Rayo Vallecano and brought back Brahim Diaz from AC Milan after his two-year loan tenure.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
