With Karim Benzema’s fitness starting to become a topic of concern at Real Madrid, it would not be a surprise to see the club go after a new striker in the summer transfer window.

Benzema has missed a bunch of matches due to various fitness issues and given that he is 35 years of age, the time might be right for Los Blancos to start thinking about the future.

Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland remain very much a topic of discussion when it comes to Real Madrid.

But, according to a fresh report from AS, Los Blancos also have Tottenham Hotspur forward Richarlison as an option to reinforce the attack in the summer.

The Brazilian international has been on the agenda at Real Madrid ever since Carlo Ancelotti took over the reins of the club in 2021. The Italian tactician coached Richarlison at Everton in the past and rates him highly.

The versatile forward moved to Tottenham only last summer, but cracks are starting to appear already as he recently lashed out at manager Antonio Conte over the lack of playing time as well as criticising the manager’s tactics.

Richarlison has had a difficult time at Tottenham, having had to compete with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski for playing time.

All these factors could compel him to consider his future, especially if Conte remains in charge of the team beyond the ongoing campaign. In that scenario, Real Madrid might consider swooping in for the Brazilian forward.

The fact that he could link up with international teammates Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Eder Militao at Real Madrid could appeal to Richarlison.

But convincing Tottenham to sell could be a whole different issue, especially considering that they splashed close to €70 million on him less than a year ago.

Now that Nacho is ready to join Al Qadsiah, Real Madrid have decided to ramp up their efforts to sign Lille defender Leny Yoro, reports Jose Felix Diaz via MARCA.

As reported before, Nacho has decided to end his career with the Spanish club as he has agreed to a two-year contract with Al Qadsiah in the Saudi Pro League. With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now have a spot open in their defence and are eager to fill it with Yoro.

It is important to note that Yoro has attracted a lot of interest from other clubs. Paris Saint-Germain have been particularly active in trying to sign him, offering €60 million for the player. 

Although this offer is close to what Lille wants, Yoro isn’t interested in moving to PSG.

What Yoro is looking forward to is joining Real Madrid. While the player and Real Madrid have a verbal agreement, the deal with Lille still needs to be finalised soon.

What about the transfer fee?

Regarding the transfer fee, Real Madrid are hesitant to match PSG’s €60 million offer because Yoro has only one year left on his contract.

Initially, the club planned to wait until June 30 to begin serious negotiations. However, due to the increasing interest from clubs like PSG, Manchester United, and Liverpool, they might need to speed up the process.

With Nacho leaving, Real Madrid now has the necessary room to strengthen their defence and Yoro fits the bill. 

Madrid already have Yoro in plans

It must be noted that the club’s management, in accordance with Carlo Ancelotti, is already planning next season’s lineup of centre-backs. 

They expect Rafa Marin to leave, so the defensive lineup for coach Carlo Ancelotti is likely to include Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, David Alaba, and possibly Yoro if they can complete the negotiations successfully.

Real Madrid are focusing on building a strong defence for the upcoming season. They see Yoro as a valuable addition and are working hard to secure his transfer. 

The next steps involve reaching an agreement with Lille and finalizing the transfer details as soon as possible.
