Real Madrid are gearing up for a crucial summer ahead. The club are soon expected to confirm the arrival of Kylian Mbappe, while another key signing Endrick is eager to join the camp at the end of the season.

Real Madrid are expected to sign a few more star players to address certain weak areas in the team, including the fullback department.

Unlike their arch-rivals Barcelona, Real Madrid are in a sound financial position and won’t have much issues in regards to meeting the club’s budget, despite the rather exorbitant salary of Mbappe.

Speaking of finances, Real Madrid are already making up for their expenses for the coming summer by earning heaps of revenue from the UEFA Champions League.

According to Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid have already bagged as much as €55 million from the UEFA Champions League this season.

This comes shortly after the club’s narrow triumph over RB Leipzig in the Round of 16 tie, where Los Blancos won by a 2-1 aggregate.

The win over RB Leipzig helped the team secure a ticket to the quarterfinal stage. Real Madrid stand to earn more revenue from the competition as we approach the final phase of the campaign.

In fact, the Spanish giants could easily reach up to €100 million in revenue from the Champions League if they can reach the final.

However, Real Madrid’s task in the Champions League is about to get tougher, considering the quality of teams that have qualified for the quarterfinal stage.

In fact, Real Madrid will be joined by the likes of Bayern Munich, Manchester City, and Paris Saint-Germain in the quarterfinal stage.

This week, clubs like Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal and Barcelona are in contention to reach the final eight stage, alongside the winner of the Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan tie.

It is set up to be a transformative summer for Real Madrid. After the UEFA Champions League final has concluded and the grand showdown finally has a victor, the Merengues are expected to undergo a squad revamp.

Indeed, the Santiago Bernabeu is preparing to welcome several high-profile signings, while also bidding farewell to some beloved Madrid legends.

Considering the potential arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, as well as Toni Kroos’ recent retirement, here is how Real Madrid could shape up next season:


Having made a long-awaited return from injury, Thibaut Courtois is anticipated to guard Real Madrid’s goal next season once more.

The Belgian goalie has already started featuring in the starting XI and is expected to play against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final, too.

As such, his place for next season is hardly in doubt. However, unlike previous seasons, he will face much fiercer competition from Andriy Lunin, who has enjoyed a stellar campaign.


Fortifications in the defensive line remain high on Real Madrid’s priority list in the upcoming summer transfer window. However, even with the given options the Royal Whites boast assurance and grit in their back-line.

The likely occupants on the flanks would be Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy, who have both produced great exhibitions throughout the campaign.

Carvajal is known to punish defensive lines and on the defensive end, his anticipation of forwards has been equally appreciable.

Meanwhile, Mendy’s resurgence this season has earned him immense faith from the coaching staff, as his defensive aptitude continues to set him apart.

In the centre-back positions, Real Madrid are expected to rely on the dependable figures of Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao.

Real Madrid consider Rudiger to be indispensable owing to his front-footed style and the important role he has had to play amidst the injury crisis. Similarly, Militao is valued by the team as he proceeds to regain match fitness after recovering from a long-term injury.

Thankfully for Real Madrid, their succession stage had begun a while ago and they have ample options to trust in the center of the park.

With Aurelien Tchouameni protecting the base of midfield, Real Madrid will possess security and deep progression.

Ahead, occupying the interior midfield positions, Fede Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga are well-suited to provide a combination of energy off the ball and threat in possession.

And to put the cherry on top, Jude Bellingham’s place as the number 10 behind the two strikers would certify his status as a pivotal playmaker and scorer in the team’s setup.

However, he is adept at making third-man runs and connecting the midfield with the offence and could play deeper to not only make up for Kroos’ absence but also facilitate more options up front.


Real Madrid’s offensive department is where the largest reform is expected to take place.

Kylian Mbappe’s goalscoring instincts need little introduction by now and he is thus anticipated to be fielded as the striker.

Vinicius Jr. is expected to take up the position as a secondary striker drifting from the left, something he has become quite accustomed to this season.

It is worth noting that Endrick could also play a part by either replacing Vinicius off the bench and playing off Mbappe.

It remains to be seen how many men forward Ancelotti will commit to but the presence of Mbappe and Vinicius seems set in stone, given their huge profiles and status in world football. How the manager uses Rodrygo Goes will be interesting to see as well.

All in all, considering Ancelotti’s proficiency in profiling players, Madrid fans can expect to see these stars play in favourable environments.
