Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr have carried Real Madrid’s attack this season. The two stars now share chemistry second to none and combine effortlessly on the field.

While all the action seemingly takes place on the left flank, where the Brazilian plays, Los Blancos cannot boast of an equally potent right-wing. Marco Asensio and Rodrygo have been the coach’s favourites to take the third place in the attack, but neither has been convincing. 

According to reports from Diario AS, Real Madrid have identified Serge Gnabry as a potential signing to strengthen their void. Moreover, the club are said to have a plan of action to make the transfer possible.

David Alaba knows the German winger well after sharing the dressing room with him at Bayern Munich. The Austrian international has recommended Gnabry’s name and is reportedly pushing for the deal. 

The Bayern Munich winger is said to be unhappy with his role at the club. He has only started 19 of the league games this season, scoring ten goals and providing four assists. Needless to say, the player feels he deserves more minutes and a better contract. 

Contacts between the German’s representatives and Real Madrid have begun. Gnabry has one year left on his contract at Allianz Arena. That considered, the club are under pressure to sell the player as they risk losing him on a free transfer next June.

It remains to be seen how Florentino Perez finances the transfer given that the club are already eyeing Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe. Moreover, reinforcements at fullback are the need of the hour.

Joao Cancelo has, for a long time, been considered one of the best full-backs in the world of football. What makes the Portuguese international special is not just his ability to contribute flawlessly at both ends of the field but also the fact that he can recreate his magic on both flanks.

For a player of such quality to depart Manchester City unsurprisingly broke the internet. Cancelo signed for Bayern Munich on a six-month loan in January with a whopping €70 million purchase clause included in the paperwork.

According to reports from AS, the player preferred a move to Spain. Both Real Madrid and Barcelona were offered Cancelo’s services, and it was only after both La Liga giants rejected it that Bayern Munich got the chance to sign him.

For the Catalans, the player’s salary was the hurdle preventing his arrival. In Real Madrid’s case, however, it was the board’s reluctance to change the squad midway through the season.

For a long time now, Real Madrid have maintained a low profile in winter transfer windows. Carlo Ancelotti liked the full-back’s profile and saw him as a good fit, but the management would not hear of it.

Real Madrid have had a torrid time at the full-back position in recent weeks, indicating that the squad was in urgent need of new signings.

For almost a month, Ancelotti has been without a right-back after both Lucas Vazquez and Dani Carvajal suffered injuries. Just as the latter recovered, Ferland Mendy hobbled off the field and could miss six weeks of action.

Cancelo’s signing would have thus been the ideal way to kill two birds with one stone. Nevertheless, the management have their faith in the young Vinicius Tobias and it remains to be seen if their gamble pays off.
