Even though Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are going strong this season, Real Madrid need to start thinking about the future and put a succession plan in place for the right-back slot.

It has given way to links to players such as Yan Couto of Manchester City, currently on loan at Girona, as well as Liverpool superstar Trent Alexander-Arnold, whose contract expires in 2025.

Another name that appears to be on the agenda at the Real Madrid offices is that of Bayer Leverkusen ace Jeremie Frimpong.

Indeed, as per journalist Rudy Galetti, Real Madrid are following Jeremie Frimpong, who is a target for Premier League bigwigs Manchester United for the summer.

Frimpong, 23, has been a big success at Leverkusen since joining them from Celtic back in 2021. The Dutchman has taken his game up a notch under the tutelage of Xabi Alonso.

In fact, Frimpong was one of Leverkusen’s most crucial players as they won the Bundesliga title for the first time ever this past weekend.

The former Manchester City academy man has made 38 appearances in all competitions for Die Werkself this season, racking up 12 goals and 11 assists in the process.

Real Madrid appreciate Frimpong, but as has been reported previously, there are some doubts about the defensive facets of his game.

Frimpong has a contract with Bayer Leverkusen that runs until the summer of 2028 and the German champions will be reluctant to sell one of their key assets right after winning the title.

However, it is believed that there is a €40 million release clause in his contract which will be in force this summer which Real Madrid could trigger if they intend to sign him.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
