According to Fabrizio Romano on The Here We Go Podcast, Real Madrid are keeping a close eye on the situation of Manchester United winger Alejandro Garnacho, along with many other clubs.

The 18-year-old prodigy started out at the academy of Real Madrid’s arch-rivals, Atletico Madrid, before joining Manchester United in the summer transfer window of 2020.

The Argentine prospect has gradually progressed through the ranks at the Premier League club and become a first-team member under Erik ten Hag this season.

Garnacho, thus far, has scored two goals and set up five more across all competitions for the Red Devils’ first team, making valuable contributions this season.

But with the teenager’s contract expiring in the summer of 2024, Garnacho’s situation has alerted several top clubs across Europe, including Real Madrid.

Los Blancos will likely need attacking reinforcements next summer as Eden Hazard is likely to be moved on while Marco Asensio could also be on his way out as his contract nears expiry.

At 18, Garnacho is making huge waves and can be an excellent acquisition in the short and long term for Real Madrid should they make an approach for him if contract negotiations with Manchester United do not go as per plans.

For now, the Merengues are just keeping an eye on how things progress between the Argentine prodigy and the Red Devils and they have not held any negotiations as of yet.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
