Real Madrid are looking at Juventus striker and Chelsea target Dusan Vlahovic as an emergency solution for their No. 9 woes if Kylian Mbappe does not arrive this summer.

This claim comes from Francisco Jose Delgado on SER Deportivos, who states that manager Carlo Ancelotti is still pushing the Real Madrid board to sign a new striker following Karim Benzema’s departure.

The Italian tactician wanted to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur, but the club stopped all big operations when it became clear that Mbappe might become available.

Still no movement on the Mbappe front

While Real Madrid’s interest in Mbappe is no secret, neither the club nor the player has made any move towards a transfer this summer despite PSG putting the forward up for sale and freezing him out of the first-team squad.

It is believed that Los Blancos might wait until late in the transfer window to pressure PSG into selling the player for an affordable price, while some outlets suggest that both Mbappe and Madrid prefer a free transfer next year.

As such, there is still some doubt about the Frenchman ending up at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

Vlahovic the fallback option

And in the scenario that Mbappe does not join, Real Madrid are now looking at Vlahovic as an emergency solution to reinforce the No. 9 slot.

The 23-year-old Serbian international, whose market value stands at €70 million, is keen on leaving Juventus, and the Bianconeri too are looking to offload him amidst a barrage of financial issues.

Chelsea are interested in signing Vlahovic and are in talks with Juve over a potential deal that would see Romelu Lukaku move to the Allianz Stadium.

In case that deal does not go through and Mbappe does not arrive at the Bernabeu, Real Madrid will move for Vlahovic, potentially towards the end of the transfer window.

With there being a lot of moving parts involved, it remains to be seen how this story unfolds in the coming weeks.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
