It is no secret that Real Madrid need a centre-forward at the earliest. While the team have found alternate sources of goals in Karim Benzema’s absence this season, one cannot deny that they lack the cutting edge in the final third.

Moreover, with the French striker now close to the twilight of his career, the need is more than ever. Multiple reports have said that Los Blancos’ priority in the coming transfer window will be to reinforce the striker position, and Fabrizio Romano has shed more light on the same.

According to the Italian journalist, Real Madrid are pushing to sign Endrick. Romano insists that Los Blancos are ‘obsessed’ with landing the teenage sensation, along with two other clubs.

Real Madrid share a close connection with the Brazilian’s agent who also happens to be the agent of Vinicius Jr. The European Champions are obsessed with the wonderkid and are desperate to bring him to the Bernabeu at the earliest.

At just 16 years of age, Endrick has sent shockwaves with his performances for Palmeiras in recent years. He has scored three goals and an assist in just five appearances for the Brazilian side. 

Real Madrid are just one of the multiple European clubs in the running for his signing. Barcelona, PSG, Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool are some of the others with him on their wishlist.  

Nevertheless, it is clear that Carlo Ancelotti’s side are one of the favourites to sign the youngsters, but the likes of Chelsea and PSG pose a serious threat to their chances. It remains to be seen if the club push hard in the coming days to seal the deal.

Even if they do strike an agreement for Endrick, the teenager will only arrive at the club in 2024, when he turns 18 years old.

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.
