Prominent journalist Santi Aouna (via Madrid Xtra) has offered a series of updates on Real Madrid’s transfer plans in the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to the Foot Mercato journalist, the Spanish giants are planning to significantly strengthen the squad ahead of the new season. And as part of their plans, they are aiming to sign up to three players.

One of the priority targets is a midfielder. Needless to say, Real Madrid have already made some progress on that front. The club are in pole position to secure the services of Jude Bellingham. The player is ready to move to Santiago Bernabeu and has rejected other offers.

Real Madrid only need to reach an agreement with Borussia Dortmund, before the deal can be closed.

Another priority target for Los Blancos this summer is a left-back. The club are planning ahead for a rejig in the position, especially with Ferland Mendy likely to leave at the end of the season. The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

Real Madrid will bring back Fran Garcia ahead of the new season, but they are looking for a more proven option at left-back, with Andy Robertson emerging as the latest target.

Finally, the Spanish giants are looking to sign a new attacker. With Karim Benzema nearing the end of his career, Carlo Ancelotti may require the services of a reliable alternative in the goalscoring department.

Vinicius Junior has done an excellent job, but Real Madrid appear to be far too reliant on the Brazilian at times. The club, therefore, are keen on bringing in a proven attacker this summer. They have been linked with moves for Richarlison, Dusan Vlahovic and others, but there is no clarity, as far as the priority target is concerned.

    Despite occasional flashes of brilliance, Richarlson is not a predictable serial goal scorer at the level of Benzema when the latter is at his best. Although both of them are Brazilians, it will take no time before he and the other temperamental Brazilian, Vinicius, clash on the pitch even though they’ll be playing for the same team.

Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal are making ambitious plans for the summer transfer window. After Al Nassr roped in Cristiano Ronaldo in January, their rivals have been making efforts to bring in superstars from European football.

And, according to the Independent, Al Hilal have grand plans of teaming up Real Madrid captain and icon Karim Benzema with Barcelona legend Lionel Messi at the club.

Benzema’s renewal at Real Madrid was believed to have been tied up until 2024 following his Ballon d’Or triumph.

However, the 35-year-old has a real chance of leaving the Santiago Bernabeu in the coming weeks itself thanks to the lucrative proposal that has arrived from Saudi.

As per the report, Benzema stands a chance to earn a mammoth €100 million per year if he were to accept the offer from Al Hilal, which is he now seriously considering.

What would really be interesting is that fans might get a chance to see Benzema potentially team up with Messi at the club and they would be taking on Ronaldo. However, at this point, deals for Benzema and Messi are not yet closed.

The Real Madrid captain is understood to have asked the club for time to think and could arrive at a decision by the weekend.

In case he does end up making the jump to the Saudi Pro League, Real Madrid will have to dip their toes in the market for a replacement. Names such as Roberto Firmino, Harry Kane, and Victor Osimhen are being talked up as possible candidates.

All in all, an important week awaits Benzema and Real Madrid which could set the course for the club’s transfer plans this summer.
