Even as Real Madrid prepare for the shock departure of Casemiro to Manchester United, they could welcome a new signing into the club imminently.

According to journalist Sergio Santos, teenage sensation Iker Bravo is set to have his medical today to complete his transfer from German club Bayer Leverkusen to Real Madrid.

The 17-year-old prodigy came through the youth ranks at Los Blancos’ arch-rivals Barcelona but left La Masia for Leverkusen last summer. He made his first-team debut for the Bundesliga outfit last season but largely played for their U-17 and U-19 sides, making a huge impression.

Bravo’s potential and performances in Germany have now earned him a swift move back to his homeland, with a move to Real Madrid all but completed. The reigning Spanish and European champions fought off interest from neighbours Atletico Madrid to clinch his signing.

As per the report, the teenage striker will be joining the Merengues on a season-long loan with an option to purchase. The two clubs have already reached full agreement over the transfer and he will complete his medical sometime today.

However, an official confirmation might be delayed by a few days due to some process involving FIFA.

Bravo, once he arrives, would be expected to slot in with Real Madrid’s Castilla outfit under club legend Raul Gonzalez.

However, given the lack of options in the No. 9 role behind Karim Benzema in the first-team setup, there could be an outside chance that the teenager gets a look-in into Carlo Ancelotti’s plans at some stage of the season.

Replacing Luka Modric is a task Real Madrid’s administration better not attempt. After all, finding a like-for-like replacement for a world-class player who defined an era is close to impossible.

The Croat himself, however, has always held high regard for his compatriot Marcelo Brozovic. The Inter Milan player possesses a profile that highly interests Los Blancos and Carlo Ancelotti.

Brozovic has been on the transfer lists of several European clubs in the current transfer window. Of them, Barcelona have been mentioned as a strong candidate.

Though Nerazzurri were initially reluctant to let the midfielder go, Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport report that Inter Milan are now prepared to take that step at the end of the season.

The Italian management understands that the manager has modes to cope without Brozovic and that the time is right to move on with economic compensation.

One of the biggest names in the race to sign him, according to the source, is Real Madrid. Given that he has a contract until 2026 in Italy, the European Champions will have to shell out at least €30 million for his services, a figure that Inter feel he should be valued at.

The Merengues are not alone in the race for Brozovic. Barcelona are back in the equation as they see him as an ideal replacement for their captain Sergio Busquets.

The third European giants interested in the 30-year-old Croatian international are Chelsea. Juventus also wanted to try their luck too but were forced to back out after their recent sanctions.

It remains to be seen if Real Madrid can afford the €30 million tag in the summer given their interest in Jude Bellingham. Close to €150 million of their budget will be frozen on the Englishman, and spending more on another midfielder may not be warranted.
