Real Madrid have already made their headline signing of the summer, having acquired Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer.

But business is far from done at the Santiago Bernabeu as Real Madrid are still looking to reinforce the squad with a few more signings like Leny Yoro and Alphonso Davies.

Furthermore, there could be some exits as well which could dictate any potential business that the Merengues do once the transfer window is open next month.

Kepa Arrizabalaga could return

One of the possible departures in the summer could be goalkeeper Andriy Lunin. The 25-year-old has doubts about his continuity owing to the fact that he will once again have to play second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois next season.

Juventus have shown a strong interest in signing Lunin, while there are other top European sides looking at him as well.

If he opts to leave, Real Madrid will have to rope in a replacement and SPORT reports that the European champions could turn to a familiar face in Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The 29-year-old Spaniard spent the last season on loan at Real Madrid, after the club moved for him following Courtois’ ACL injury.

While he started the season ahead of Lunin, the Ukrainian became the undisputed choice after a few months and Kepa was relegated to the bench.

Kepa returns to Chelsea after making 20 appearances in Madrid in which he kept nine clean sheets. The Spaniard, though, has no future in London and is likely to be on the move again.

Given the familiarity aspect, Real Madrid could thus move for him if Lunin ends up leaving in the summer.

Kepa’s contract expires in 2025 and his market value stands at €12 million, but Real Madrid will definitely look to negotiate a lower fee if the scenario does arise.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
