While Carlo Ancelotti recently said that Real Madrid’s transfer business for the summer was all wrapped up, that might not exactly be the case.

According to a report from Cadena SER, Real Madrid could enter the market for reinforcements depending on the exits from the club before the transfer window closes.

Borja Mayoral is closing in on a transfer to Getafe, while Mariano Diaz is also heavily linked with an exit this summer. With Luka Jovic already leaving for Fiorentina, Los Blancos would be left with no viable backup for Karim Benzema in the No. 9 role.

There had been plans to use Eden Hazard in the ‘false nine’ role, but as per the report, the Belgian has not entirely convinced in a central role. So, before the transfer window closes, Real Madrid will dip their toes into the market for a new centre-forward.

The report further sheds light on the profile of the striker that the current Spanish and European champions are seeking.

It is claimed that Ancelotti’s side will want an experienced player who is around 30 years old and can guarantee at least 10-12 goals per season from a substitute role.

The report does not mention if Los Merengues already have any player in their minds and it will be interesting to see who they go after.

Real Madrid have made just two signings this summer, bringing in Antonio Rudiger on a free transfer and then splashing the cash on Aurelien Tchouameni. Kylian Mbappe had been one of Florentino Perez’s top targets but the Frenchman signed a new contract with PSG.

Missing out on the Frenchman, coupled with the impending exits of Mayoral and Mariano have forced Real into action for another striker.

Youngster Juanmi Latasa could be an option, but given his lack of experience, there is no guarantee that he can deliver on the 10-12 goals per season objective. So, as things stand, Real Madrid could go shopping for an attacker before the window closes.

As PSG brace for the departure of Kylian Mbappe, it is set to mark a before and after in the history of the French club.

All signs point towards the 25-year-old superstar signing for Real Madrid on a free transfer, with an agreement between the two parties getting closer.

And, it may so happen that another PSG star might follow Mbappe to the Santiago Bernabeu, albeit a year later in 2025.

Hakimi could return to Real Madrid

Indeed, according to Mundo Deportivo, Achraf Hakimi could opt to leave PSG in the summer of 2025 and Real Madrid would be a likely destination for the Moroccan right-back.

Hakimi, a former Real Madrid academy graduate, has enjoyed success in Paris since joining them from Inter Milan.

However, the Moroccan international will enter the final year of his contract in 2025, with the deal expiring in 2026. And, both the player and the club could opt to part ways then if a new contract is not agreed upon.

And a return to Real Madrid could be on the cards for Hakimi. He is a player very well considered by Carlo Ancelotti.

The ex-Inter Milan man would also come to reinforce the right-back position, which currently has Dani Carvajal and Lucas Lucas Vazquez, whose contract expires at the end of the season, but could be offered a one-year extension.

Furthermore, Hakimi would be keen to return to the Spanish capital and would even be willing to reduce his current salary, which is over €10 million net. The lure of playing with Mbappe, one of his closest friends, will also be a major appealing factor.

As for Real Madrid, they need to soon find a long-term heir to Carvajal and a player like Hakimi, entering his prime years and familiar with the club could prove to be a shrewd signing.
