After his shocking sacking from Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann is available on the market, with several top clubs potentially looking a him as a replacement. One of them happens to Real Madrid.

After a series of poor results in 2023, Carlo Ancelotti’s future has been called into question, with reports claiming that they might be looking to change managers. The likes of Zinedine Zidane, Mauricio Pochettino, Raul, and Thomas Tuchel were also reported on their radar.

Tuchel has been appointed by Bayern, though, as a replacement. It does open up the door for Nagelsmann to go to Santiago Bernabeu.

As per a report by Kerry Hau (h/t MadridXtra), Madrid president Florentino Perez is a long-time admirer of Nagelsmann. The German coach has been on the club’s radar, too, for a long time.

Ancelotti has been under severe criticism, especially, after 2-1 loss against Barcelona. Madrid have also dropped points against Real Betis, Atletico Madrid, Mallorca, Villarreal, and Real Sociedad in the leagued, drifting them 12 points off Barcelona.

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.
