Following the departure of Nacho Fernandez and the sale of Rafa Marin, Real Madrid have stepped up their search for a central defender in the market.

The club have been closely linked with a move for Leny Yoro, widely regarded as Real Madrid’s number-one defensive target.

But after failing to find an agreement with LOSC Lille, Real Madrid are looking out for alternatives in the market.

Real Madrid eyeing move for German talent

In order to alleviate the concerns in the defensive unit, Real Madrid have now set their sights on German defensive prospect Yann Bisseck, reports OkDiario (h/t Sport Bild).

Currently plying his trade for Inter Milan, Bisseck is a central defender by trade, who enjoyed a breakthrough in the first-team during the 2023/24 campaign.

The former Koln starlet featured in 16 league matches, impressing onlookers with his imposing presence at the back, coupled with his discipline and skill.

Bisseck’s performances have not gone unnoticed, with Real Madrid scouting him as a potential alternative to Leny Yoro.

Will Bisseck leave Inter Milan this summer?

Acquiring the services of Yann Bisseck this summer could be the trickiest part for Real Madrid. It must be remembered that Bisseck had only joined Inter last summer, for a fee of around €7 million.

And following his breakthrough last season, the Italian outfit will be apprehensive about offloading the German talent, knowing his valuation could inflate further if he continues his progress.

A lot, therefore, will depend on how much Real Madrid are willing to offer this summer. While Bisseck will certainly be a cheaper option than Yoro, the German also has lower exposure to professional football.

Real Madrid must keep this in mind as they continue their search for defensive reinforcements this summer.

Real Madrid realized one of their biggest sporting and commercial ambitions by signing Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer this summer.

Adhering faithfully to their Galacticos philosophy, signing Mbappe exemplified that the Merengues pursue not only elite talent but also renowned figures who carry global recognition.

While Mbappe has yet to play a single minute for the club, he is already busy breaking records at the club.

Mbappe’s shirt sales are through the roof

Indeed, according to El Chiringuito, within a mere day of its launch, Kylian Mbappe’s jersey sales have soared to an astounding 450% higher than those of Jude Bellingham.

Given Bellingham’s huge name in football, this impressive statistic highlights a fervent demand for the French star’s jerseys among supporters worldwide.

Moreover, the club’s online store has reaped substantial financial rewards, generating an impressive sum of €800,000 solely from the sale of Mbappe’s jerseys.

On top of that, they have sold more than 7,000 Mbappe shirts at the club’s physical store which will have provided further revenue boost.

Considering that the 2018 World Cup winner will don the number 9 shirt adds to the incredible demand, as several greats of the game have represented this number in the past, including Karim Benzema most recently.

Real Madrid struggling to keep up with the demand

Reports have mentioned that Real Madrid are appealing for patience from their fans as they handle the high volume of sales.

In fact, Real Madrid eventually posted a note on their website warning that delivery delays of up to 4-6 extra weeks may occur due to the great demand for Mbappe’s kits.

Tuesday, July 16 is set aside for his formal presentation at the Santiago Bernabeu, where a full house is expected to greet him, potentially with a large chunk of the fans wearing Mbappe jerseys.
