Real Madrid’s pursuit of Jude Bellingham this summer has been well-documented, with various reports confirming that the Borussia Dortmund midfielder is ready to join the Spanish giants.

Real Madrid have expertly moved ahead of Manchester City to secure an agreement with Bellingham, though the deal could hinge on the club finding an agreement with Borussia Dortmund as well.

Nevertheless, in the midst of speculations linking Bellingham to Santiago Bernabeu, it appears Real Madrid are eyeing another fabulous swoop this summer by targeting Kylian Mbappe, reports The Telegraph.

The report suggests Real Madrid are looking to take advantage of Paris Saint-Germain this summer and explore a move for Mbappe. They have revived their interest in the Frenchman, who was close to joining the ranks of Real Madrid last summer.

After renewing his contract with PSG, things have not gone according to plan for Mbappe. The former AS Monaco starlet has been left disappointed by the club’s lack of success in the Champions League.

There has also been discontent between the player and the board, for failing to sign a new number nine last summer.

PSG are also facing the risk of losing Messi, who is likely to move elsewhere amid interest from Barcelona and Saudi Arabian clubs. Aware of the situation, Los Blancos are prepared to inflict further pain on the Parisian club by snatching Mbappe this summer.

Given that Erling Haaland is likely to stay at Manchester City for the time being, Real Madrid could look to pull their resources for Mbappe.

The player himself could fancy a move to Santiago Bernabeu, where he would have the opportunity to become the attacking leader, alongside Vinicius Junior.

The potential combination of Vinicius and Mbappe, coupled with the presence of Karim Benzema and Bellingham in the team, could make Real Madrid arguably the strongest in Europe, thus equipping them with the resources to dominate club football in the years to come.

Florian Wirtz has enjoyed a spectacular 2023/24 season and he has played an integral role in Bayer Leverkusen being crowned the Bundesliga champions this past weekend.

The 20-year-old has plundered 17 goals and 18 assists from 41 matches in all competitions, emerging as one of the best young players in Europe, with his game reaching a new level under Xabi Alonso.

Naturally, Real Madrid have taken note of Wirtz and his development and have set their sights on him as a target for the future.

Real Madrid are not the only club interested in the German international, though, with other clubs like Manchester City and Liverpool also keen.

Wirtz to continue at Bayer Leverkusen for now

Any move for Wirtz though will not be taking place in the summer this year, though, with Bayer Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro confirming as much in a recent interview.

“Florian Wirtz will stay with us next season. The plan is clear, together with his father,” Carro said in an interview with AS, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“There’s interest from many clubs, we can’t plan too long in football… but he’s staying,” he added.

Works in Real Madrid’s favour

Wirtz staying at Bayer Leverkusen for another season would work well into Real Madrid’s transfer plans.

After all, the Merengues have other priorities like Kylian Mbappe, Alphonso Davies, and Leny Yoro for the upcoming summer.

Wirtz is on the Spanish capital club’s agenda, but for the future, and him staying in the Bundesliga at least for another year gives Los Blancos a chance to go after him in 2025.
