Real Madrid have made their ambitions known this summer by bringing in Jude Bellingham, Arda Guler and Fran Garcia to the Santiago Bernabeu ahead of the new season.

If that is not enough, the club are now in contention to sign Kylian Mbappe, who is facing an uncertain future at Paris Saint-Germain. It appears the French champions want to get rid of their star player this summer, in order to avoid losing him for free next year.

A recent report from The Athletic has offered a detailed update on Real Madrid’s finances, suggesting the club are indeed in a position to afford the Frenchman this summer.

Thanks to years of remarkable management, Real Madrid have been able to balance their finances extremely well. They have been quite frugal with their spending in recent years while managing to bring in fresh revenue through the sale of fringe players.

This summer, the club had to let go of Eden Hazard and Karim Benzema, two of the highest earners at the Bernabeu. Thanks to that, Real Madrid have more wiggle room, in terms of finances.

The club, therefore, are in a position to finance a move for Mbappe despite spending quite heavily so far this summer. Indeed, Los Blancos have splurged around €128 million on new signings in this window, a large portion of which went into the capture of Jude Bellingham.

The 20-year-old midfielder cost an initial €103 million while the Merengues shelled out €5 million for Garcia and €20 million for Guler. Despite the spending, the Spanish capital giants are in a position to splash the cash for Mbappe and still have some money left over.

However, it is no secret that Los Blancos prefer to sign the former AS Monaco starlet next summer when the player will likely be available on a free transfer.

Saudi Arabian giants Al-Hilal have recently tried to disrupt the transfer saga by coming up with a lucrative offer, but Mbappe has no intention of moving to the Middle East right now.

Real Madrid, for their part, have shown a lot of patience in their pursuit of Mbappe and it will not be surprising to see them wait until August before making a move for the French international.

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
