Real Madrid have identified their priority targets for the next two summer windows
A recent report from Diario AS has offered an update on Real Madrid’s transfer policy. Although the club have been doing extremely well in Europe and in domestic competitions, they remain keen on building a squad for the future.
As part of their plans, the club have identified two long-term targets in the form of Erling Haaland and Jude Bellingham. They are considered as excellent options for the club for the immediate present and the future and are seen as priority targets for the next two summer windows.
In the case of Haaland, Real Madrid have a straightforward plan to intervene in 2024, when a release clause worth €200 million will be activated.
Although a figure of €200 million is a fortune, Real Madrid believe the striker can be worth the bill due to his limitless potential. Haaland has already found immense success in the Premier League so far, racking up 17 goals in 11 matches.
The case of Bellingham is a bit more complicated. The youngster does not have a release clause in his contract with Borussia Dortmund, who are determined to keep hold of him.
Even if the Germans are forced to sell him off in the summer of 2023, they are expected to hold out for a fee of €150 million. Real Madrid, though, are not willing to pay more than €100 million for the Englishman.
However, it is believed that the Whites could push for his signing at the end of the season, knowing the player himself could consider an exit from Dortmund.
There is interest from the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea in the 19-year-old midfielder, but recent reports indicate that Bellingham desires to move to the Santiago Bernabeu, which will be a major boost for Real Madrid.
As such, the European champions are plotting to sign two of their top targets in two different summer transfer windows.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool monitoring 19-year-old Bundesliga wonderkid – Romano
According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all monitoring Bayer Leverkusen and Germany wonderkid Florian Wirtz.
After recovering from his ACL injury, the teenage sensation has been slowly working his way back to his best form. So far this term, Wirtz has managed to rack up a tally of two goals and six assists from 13 matches in all competitions.
The 19-year-old’s talent and potential have never been in question and hence it does not come as a surprise that elite clubs such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all keeping tabs on the German international.
A versatile attacking midfielder, Wirtz is capable of playing anywhere in the final third of the pitch and backs up with top-notch end product. Be it as a false-nine or in a more withdrawn role, the youngster has excelled for Bayer Leverkusen, catching the attention of top teams.
Real Madrid, for their part, are also understood to be among Wirtz’s admirers. Given the situation surrounding Karim Benzema’s fitness and the lack of backup at the top, the youngster could be an option, as he has shown potential while operating through the middle.
But Barcelona also have a strong interest in the teenager with reports even suggesting that they have already made contact with his father to enquire about his situation.
At the same time, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is understood to be a huge admirer of his fellow German and with Roberto Firmino on his way out, Wirtz could be lined up as a possible replacement.
However, Romano adds that the expectation is that Wirtz could stay at Bayer Leverkusen for one more year and depart Germany once the UEFA Euro 2024 is out of the way.
For now, there have been talks or negotiations with any clubs, but Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are all tracking Wirtz and his progress in Germany.

” Bellingham desires to move to the Santiago Bernabeu”…. strange, because he’s already agreed to move to City next summer, something that’s well know within the club, and Halaand has already indicated that he is happy to sign an improved contract at the club too. Oh well!
