Real Madrid ended the summer transfer window with the notable purchase of Jude Bellingham, who promises to be an asset for the club in the years to come.

But the Spanish giants failed to bring in Kylian Mbappe or any other striker that can at least momentarily replace Karim Benzema.

Real Madrid did not much of an effort to sign any of the available options in the market, including Randal Kolo Muani.

Here’s why Real Madrid did not sign Kolo Muani

A recent report from The Athletic has explained why Real Madrid did not make any effort to sign Kolo Muani, who joined PSG on transfer deadline day.

The report explains that Real Madrid were not happy with Kolo Muani’s €90-100 million price tag. The Frenchman indeed joined PSG for a whopping €95 million.

PSG paid a fortune to Kolo Muani because of his extraordinary performances at Eintracht Frankfurt. The former Nantes starlet was indeed involved in 29 league goals during his debut season in the Bundesliga.

Kolo Muani’s price tag, though, was not the only reason behind Real Madrid’s decision to not go after the French international.

The Athletic suggests Los Blancos took a cautious approach with the Frankfurt starlet as they desperately wanted to avoid another Luka Jovic scenario.

Real Madrid, indeed, were left in a precarious spot when Jovic failed to make any impact at Santiago Bernabeu after joining the club for a fee of €63 million in 2019.

After leaving Real Madrid to join Fiorentina on a free transfer last year, Jovic has signed for AC Milan this summer, once again on a free transfer.

Nevertheless, with Kolo Muani signing for PSG, Real Madrid are left with Joselu as the only recognised centre-forward, which puts the stress on the injured Vinicius Junior.

It will be interesting to see how Los Blancos manage their goalscoring department during the first half of the season and whether or not they are forced to sign a new attacker come January.
