Real Madrid have been rocked by a slew of injuries this season, which has put pressure on the club to enter the market in the upcoming January transfer window.

Especially in the goalscoring department, the injury of Vinicius Jr. means Carlo Ancelotti has only three options at his disposal, including Joselu and Brahim Diaz.

There is a lot of excitement over the arrival of Endrick, but the Brazilian will not come to the Spanish capital before the summer of 2024 and as things stand, Real Madrid could use a backup, striker at least for the second half of the season.

The Spanish giants have been recently linked with a move for Santos whizkid Marcos Leonardo, with reports suggesting that they could make a move as early as January.

Real Madrid have no interest in Leonardo: Romano

However, in a recent update, Fabrizio Romano (h/t RM4Arab) has poured water over recent speculations linking Real Madrid with a move for Leonardo.

The reliable Italian journalist suggests that Real Madrid have no such intention to sign a player with a profile similar to Leonardo’s.

As such, the Spanish giants are presumably not considering any move for the Santos whizkid, who has racked up 13 goals in the Brazilian top flight this year, and is believed to be valued at €20 million.

Excitement persists over Endrick

One of the main reasons why Real Madrid may not consider a move for Leonardo is the impending arrival of Endrick.

Everything suggests that the Palmeiras’ whizkid is quite similar to Leonardo, in terms of playing style. Real Madrid, therefore, prefer waiting for the arrival of Endrick in the summer of 2024, Romano adds.

Endrick, for his part, has generated a lot of excitement, thanks to an excellent season in the Brazil, coupled with his debut for the national team last month.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
