Real Madrid plan to make a move for Manchester City superstar in 2024

As question marks continue to rise over Real Madrid following their recent dip in form, the Merengues are calm over the situation and are not going to make any hasty decisions with regard to the coaching staff or the squad.

However, that does not mean that there are some concerns within the club’s offices and a framework for the future is already being mapped out so that the transition from the current veteran stars such as Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos is smooth.

To that end, AS is reporting that Real Madrid intend to make a move for Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland in the summer of 2024, when a release clause in his contract will become active.

The Norwegian international was on the Merengues’ agenda last summer as well. But they decided to pursue the signing of Kylian Mbappe, which did not pan out. Plus the presence of Benzema was another factor that compelled Haaland to choose Manchester City.

Since joining Pep Guardiola’s side, the 22-year-old has been tearing apart defences, having already scored 27 goals in 24 matches across all competitions.

As iterated earlier, Haaland’s contract reportedly contains a release clause worth around €180 million, which will come into effect in 2024. And Real Madrid intend to take advantage of that by launching a move for the centre-forward.

It must be noted that Benzema’s current contract expires this year, but he is expected to renew for another season. By the time the 2023/24 campaign gets over, he will be 36 years old and could likely call time on his career or move on from Real Madrid.

It would pave the way for Haaland to arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu, although it must also be noted that Real Madrid have signed Endrick from Palmeiras, who will also be joining the club in 2024.

Either way, Haaland remains firmly on Los Blancos’ agenda and it remains to be seen if they move in for him in eighteen months’ time.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
