While fans eagerly await the official announcement of Kylian Mbappe joining Real Madrid, there is fresh news regarding an impending exit from the club.

Indeed, as per Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid have decided against a permanent move for on-loan ace Vinicius Tobias.

Failed to impress

Real Madrid first signed Tobias in 2022, on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, with the youngster joining the club’s Castilla team.

The Brazilian right-back did not make the best impression in his debut season, but Los Blancos decided to offer him another chance by extending his loan stay for one more campaign.

However, Tobias once again struggled to carve out a place in Raul Gonzalez’s team, playing just 21 matches. The 20-year-old did feature once in the senior setup, playing a Copa del Rey encounter.

Either way, Tobias did not do enough to convince Real Madrid to activate the buy option in the deal for the Brazilian international.

As such, the right-back will now return to Shakhtar Donetsk, where he will do the pre-season and hope to win a spot in their first-team setup.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez will operate as the senior full-backs for next season.

Meanwhile, there may be plans to reinforce the position next year, with names like Achraf Hakimi and Trent Alexander-Arnold being linked.

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.
