Real Madrid preparing ‘huge summer revolution’ with three mega targets
Real Madrid were relatively less active than usual during the recently-concluded winter transfer window, with the club not making any notable moves in the transfer market.
However, the coming summer could be an important one for the club, especially with a string of players having their contracts expiring at the end of the season. While the Merengues have already prepared for renewals, they are also keen on strengthening the squad by bringing in new players.
To that end, a report from Tomas Gonzalez suggests Real Madrid are planning for a ‘big revolution’ in the coming summer.
The Spanish champions have identified three top targets in the form of Jude Bellingham, Dusan Vlahovic and Josko Gvardiol. The club are determined to sign all three targets in the coming summer, as they look to shore up their options in every position.
Bellingham has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for quite some time now, with various reports claiming that the Englishman is the club’s priority target in the summer as they look to find a long-term replacement for Luka Modric.
As far as Gvardiol is concerned, the Croatian was one of the best-performing defenders in the World Cup. Although a centre-back by trade, Gvardiol’s ability to operate at left-back should make him an excellent asset for Carlo Ancelotti, who has struggled with depth in the fullback spots this season.
Vlahovic, meanwhile, was reportedly offered to Real Madrid during the summer transfer window. The Whites were not too keen on splashing the money in the middle of the season, but it appears they are considering a move for the Serbian in the summer.
Vlahovic will likely be considered as a direct replacement for Karim Benzema, who has had issues with injuries. The Frenchman, in fact, has recently suffered a knock in the game against Valencia and is likely to be ruled out against Mallorca on Sunday.

Turkish giants to go all-out to sign Real Madrid outcast – report
There is no way back for Eden Hazard at Real Madrid. The Belgian international has not given the management any reason to have faith in his abilities over his past four seasons at the club and is unsurprisingly the most important departure for the Merengues in the summer.
Hazard has one more year on his contract in Madrid. However, it is clear that Carlo Ancelotti does not trust him and that any potential replacement manager in the summer will echo his stance.
According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Fenerbahce are willing to go all out to sign Hazard this summer. The Turkish side have made the former Chelsea their prime target, yet face a steep task ahead of them.
The 32-year-old is hellbent on seeing out his contract with Los Blancos despite seeing his career sink right before his eyes. It thus becomes complicated for the party to lure away the forward, especially in a competition outside Europe’s top five leagues.
Fenerbahce attempted to sign the winger in the recently concluded winter transfer market. They reached an agreement with Real Madrid but failed to get over the line as they could not convince the player of the move.
The biggest obstacle for the Turkish side will be convincing Hazard to make the move by letting go of his lucrative contract in Madrid. The chances are slim, but not impossible.
Hazard has made just three league appearances and one start for Ancelotti’s side this season in La Liga, a steep fall from last season’s 18 and seven respectively.
His last appearance for the team came back in January when Real Madrid faced Cacereno in the Copa del Rey. In La Liga however, he last played in September 2022 in a 4-1 win over Mallorca.
