Despite Spanish media trashing rumours linking Kylian Mbappe to a move to Santiago Bernabeu this summer, it appears English media is once again rekindling the speculations.

According to a recent report from Sky Sports, Real Madrid are planning for a spending spree this summer. They are in contention to sign Jude Bellingham, with the club only left to reach an agreement with Borussia Dortmund.

But in addition to Bellingham, Real Madrid are keen on signing both Mbappe and Alphonso Davies once the season ends.

Davies’ name has been linked with Real Madrid in the past, especially with the club bracing themselves for the potential sale of Ferland Mendy. The Frenchman is reportedly a target for Premier League giants Arsenal.

Davies could be an ideal long-term solution for Los Blancos in the left-back position. But as for Mbappe, the situation might be a whole lot trickier.

Fabrizio Romano has stated earlier this month that signing the Frenchman will be near impossible as PSG would be keen on keeping hold of their star man, especially with both Lionel Messi and Neymar in contention to depart Parc des Princes.

The Sky Sports report indicates Mbappe is technically entering the final year of his contract at PSG, as his three-year contract has been spread in a 2+1 manner. That means the player is eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement in January.

As for Bellingham, Dortmund sporting director Sebastian Kehl has denied receiving any offers for the Englishman. He has also hinted that the club might hold out for a hefty figure for the services of the star midfielder.

With the pursuit of Bellingham likely to take a heavy financial toll on Real Madrid, it is unlikely the club will be in a position to finance the deal for either Mbappe or Davies.

Real Madrid eye €3.5 million-rated relegated Premier League striker to reinforce attack

Following a difficult season with troubles in La Liga and the Champions League preventing Real Madrid from retaining their crowns, Los Blancos move towards a transformative summer, full of innovations.

Real Madrid managed to clear plenty of unwanted figures at the club, with a huge relief on the wage bill. However, with an array of exits, the squad has contracted and thus replacements are being inquired.

Apart from the high-profile departure of Karim Benzema, fringe players have also bid their farewell.

Among those names is Mariano Diaz, who was Madrid’s backup striker prior to his withdrawal. Several names have been put on the table to fill his absence as the club largely aim to address their lack of depth.

According to Arancha Rodriguez (via RM4Arab), Leeds United striker Rodrigo Moreno is one of the names gaining consensus in the Madrid hierarchy. Moreover, Joselu has also been considered as a viable alternative.

The two favourites to replace Mariano have proven to be important figures for their clubs as both strikers maintain a starting role.

Playing for Espanyol, Joselu ended the La Liga campaign as the third top scorer, only behind Benzema and Lewandowski. Considering Espanyol’s relegation, such a feat looks even more impressive. The Spaniard secured 19 goals in all competitions.

On the other hand, Rodrigo Moreno recorded 16 goals last season across all competitions. Similar to Joselu’s case, the Spanish international also suffered relegation with Leeds, in spite of his good numbers.

With both players offering adequate output in struggling sides, Real Madrid’s interest is practical. Moreover, considering both Espanyol and Leeds were relegated, their asking price will undeniably lower, which enables the Merengues to sign one of the two targets at a more convenient rate.

It is claimed that Rodrigo has a release clause worth €3.5 million which Los Blancos would have to trigger to sign him from Leeds United.

It now remains to be seen whether Carlo Ancelotti & co. go after the former Valencia man or move for Joselu instead.
