After a hiatus of weeks, reports of Real Madrid’s hunt to sign a striker finally returned to the headlines on Thursday. Unsurprisingly, the men in white are still eyeing options on the market to reinforce the forward line, contrary to reports earlier this month.

Kylian Mbappe is the favourite, and most preferred option for Florentino Perez. However, with his arrival looking closer to being postponed to next season, there is the need for a short-term fix at least.

According to reports from Calcio Mercato, Dusan Vlahovic is one of the names Real Madrid maintain on the table. Given that his price tag stands at close to €90 million, a permanent transfer is not seen as feasible at the moment. However, there are interesting alternatives in Perez’s mind.

Los Blancos are reportedly looking into the possibility of bringing Vlahovic on a season-long loan instead. It would include a fee of around €15 to €20 million with the option to make it permanent in the summer for a larger amount. 

The formula almost appears too good to be true. After all, signing a player with a track record like the Serbian’s for just one season until Mbappe arrives would be the ideal situation for Real Madrid. Moreover, the club will also have an option to buy, giving the player an incentive to produce his best.

The Juventus star is no stranger to playing at the highest level. In 27 Serie A appearances for the Old Lady last season, he scored ten goals and provided two assists with an average of 2.5 shots per game.

The focus lights now fall on the Turin-based side to see how they react to the proposition of loaning out their best player for a season. Clearly, it will not be a simple affair.

Jude Bellingham’s Euro 2024 campaign came to a heartbreaking end as England slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Spain in the final.

Bellingham was one of the better players for England in what was a hard-fought affair at the Olympiastadion. However, the Real Madrid star was not able to get his team over the line, with England conceding a late winner from Mikel Oyarzabal.

Bellingham was visibly disappointed at the result and was seen storming off the pitch and even kicking a drinks cooler in frustration.

Speaking to a press after the defeat, Bellingham expressed his thoughts, calling it a ‘heartbreaking result’.

“We all wanted nothing more than to make history and make people of England proud but we didn’t deliver. Going forward we will analyze it, it’s a young group,” he said (h/t Daily Mail).

Bellingham was indeed one of the more important players for an England side, which was criticised by many for their underwhelming performances

However, the Real Madrid star also looked at the positive. “It’s disappointing because we have to deliver at some point but there are things we can take from this,” he said.

“As a team, we will take the positives and negatives and we have to find a way to get it over the line,” the midfielder added.

While the defeat to Spain was certainly a blow for young Bellingham, the Englishman can hold his head up high, as he is coming on the back of a tremendous campaign that saw him secure the La Liga and the Champions League title.

For now, Bellingham will be looking forward to an extended summer break, before shifting his focus back to Real Madrid ahead of the new season.
