It is no secret that Real Madrid are in the market for attacking reinforcements. Although the club have taken Karim Benzema’s contract extension for granted, there is an internal desire to sign a forward that can replace the Frenchman in the long term.

Real Madrid fancy either one of Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland, but neither of them will be available at least until 2024 or 2025. As a result, Real Madrid are open to other options in the market.

According to Diario AS, one of the targets is Dusan Vlahovic. The Serbian forward, who is currently plying his trade at Juventus, has become an appealing option for the Spanish giants due to Juve’s economic turmoil and recent sanctions by Serie A.

The Italian giants are indeed dawdling in a mid-table position in Serie A due to a 15-point deduction. It leaves them with virtually no chance of qualifying for the next edition of the Champions League, which in turn, has put Vlahovic’s future in jeopardy.

Earlier in the year, it was reported that Vlahovic had offered himself to Real Madrid as he wanted a new adventure elsewhere. But the reigning European champions did not exercise the option due to multiple reasons, including his hefty price-tag.

The Serbian international had joined Juventus at the start of 2022 for a fee of €81 million. Any move for the striker, who has netted 19 goals in 42 matches for Juve, would, therefore, have cost in the range of €100 million.

Real Madrid, though, are discussing the possibility of making a move for Vlahovic in the coming summer. This is because the club are not entirely sure about the future of Benzema, who is currently in the final stage of his career, despite his consistent performances at the highest level.

Real Madrid, therefore, have a decision to make in their bid to address the issues in the goalscoring department ahead of the coming season.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
