It is no secret that Real Madrid are set to go big in the coming summer. With a host of current first-team players facing an uncertain future at Santiago Bernabeu, they are expected to bring in new stars and strengthen their squad ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.

According to ESPN, Real Madrid consider the signing of a new forward ‘essential’ to their team-building for next season. The club have already identified a couple of options in the form of Dusan Vlahovic and Richarlison.

Real Madrid’s saga with Vlahovic was already well-documented, with the Juventus forward reportedly being offered to the Spanish club during the January transfer window.

But Richarlison could arguably be a far more interesting option for Los Blancos. Head coach Carlo Ancelotti is quite fond of the attacker, having worked together during their time at Everton.

Ancelotti rates the Brazilian highly because of his work ethic in the final third coupled with his ability to find goalscoring opportunities. His performances in the Premier League back his skills as well, with the forward scoring over 50 goals in 152 competitive matches for Everton.

Richarlison subsequently joined Tottenham Hotspur in the summer. And although the forward is yet to find the back of the net for his new club in the league, he is considered a valuable option for Real Madrid due to his versatility and attacking prowess.

However, Real Madrid are aware of the fact that luring Richarlison to Santiago Bernabeu could be tricky. Even if the attacker is willing to make the move, he has a contract at Spurs until 2027, which should give the Premier League giants significant leverage over the player’s future.

Fortunately for the reigning Spanish champions, they have no shortage of options. While Vlahovic is the obvious alternative, the club have candidates in mind as well, as they brace themselves for a busy summer ahead.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
