Although the January transfer window is just around the corner, Real Madrid are likely preparing for the window next summer.

The club are expected to undergo a busy squad overhaul in the summer, with the management likely to splash the cash on multiple individuals, including Kylian Mbappe.

Real Madrid are also keen on beefing up their options in the left-back position, with Alphonso Davies emerging as a top target.

The club’s interest in Davies has led many to also believe that the management may sign a new right-back as well.

Real Madrid not looking for a right-back

However, according to a report from Sergio Santos (h/t RM4Arab), Real Madrid are not prioritising the signing of a new right-back next summer.

The Spanish giants have identified many problem areas in the squad, particularly in the attacking and defensive departments.

However, right-back is not among the problem areas, which suggests that the club are more than happy with the performances of Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez.

Good news for Vazquez

Vazquez’s future, in particular, has been under the microscope lately. With the player’s contract expiring at the end of the season, many believe he could depart Bernabeu in the summer.

The 32-year-old, though, has a real chance of earning a renewal at Real Madrid. The club, after all, are happy with the performances of both him and Carvajal, in the right-back position.

It was earlier reported that Vazquez wants to continue at the Bernabeu, as he looks to complete a decade in the first team.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, have other options, too, as far as the right-back position is concerned. Those at Valdebebas are particularly hopeful of Jesus Fortea potentially breaking into the first team in the near future.

After unveiling the final squad for France for the upcoming European Championship, coach Didier Deschamps appeared in front of the media to discuss the nation’s preparations for the tournament.

Deschamps was notably asked about Kylian Mbappe and his potential move to Real Madrid in the coming summer.

Deschamps on Mbappe announcement

When asked when Real Madrid may announce the signing of Mbappe, the French coach replied (h/t L’Equipe), “They will decide when it’s time to make it official. As far as possible, I will adapt to the squad.”

This comes on the back of earlier reports which claim that Real Madrid are desperate to announce the signing of Mbappe before the start of Euro 2024.

The coveted tournament begins June 14, though France’s opening game is on June 18 as they take on Austria in the city of Dusseldorf.

Deschamps also dismissed concerns over Mbappe’s form, stating, “You don’t find Kylian Mbappé in good shape? He only scored 44 goals in the season. It’s true that he could have done better.”

Deschamps on Tchouameni’s fitness

As things stand, a total of three Real Madrid players are a part of the France squad for the European Championship.

One of them is Aurelien Tchouameni, who picked up a knock earlier this month which could keep him out of the upcoming Champions League final.

Deschamps, though, is not worried about his fitness and is hopeful of having the midfielder back for the Euros.

“Tchouaméni? I’m not worried. The deadline is too short for the UCL final but for the Euro it’s more than doable,” he said.
