There is practically no elite forward’s entourage that Real Madrid did not meet with over the past few weeks. Thrown into the deep end, the administration are under pressure to identify a replacement for Karim Benzema.

Victor Osimhen is unsurprisingly one of the players Los Blancos have on their radar for the centre-forward position. In fact, Gianluca Di Marzio via Sky Italia reports that Real Madrid are still monitoring the striker and are interested in his signing.

Osimhen was one of Napoli’s best players in their Serie A-winning run last season and has caught the eye of some of the world’s biggest clubs. PSG and Manchester United are some of the others in the race, and Napoli hope to meet Osimhen’s agent and discuss his future at the earliest.

The 24-year-old, whose market value stands at €100 million, scored a stunning 26 goals and provided four assists in just 32 Serie A appearances last season. It is not surprising that the Naples-based club’s worst moments, including their elimination from the UEFA Champions League, coincided with his injury.

Florentino Perez has his eyes set on Kylian Mbappe as the primary transfer target in the ongoing window. The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for a long time now, but the deal now looks closer than ever before to materialising.

Moreover, given that the club’s second preference is Tottenham’s Harry Kane, it is safe to say that Osimhen is only a backup plan that will likely not have to be triggered.

The coming weeks will be critical in Real Madrid’s pursuit of Mbappe, and it is clear that the player is pushing for the move too.

Reports state that Los Blancos would be willing to part ways with €200 million for the Frenchman’s signing, but it remains to be seen if PSG complicate the negotiations.

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.
