Real Madrid are heading into the early mid-season hiatus second in the league table and with a desperate need to upgrade their ranks.

As part of their plans to strengthen the squad, Jorge Picon claims that the club are keeping an eye on forwards in the upcoming FIFA World Cup. It appears the club are keen on securing the services of a new frontman that can complement the current set of attackers.

Real Madrid sports management has been keeping track of the market for a long time. But they have not found anything conclusive in the market, and as such, they are keeping their eyes on the World Cup.

One of the players Real Madrid are keeping an eye on is Christopher Nkunku. A top performer at RB Leipzig, the Frenchman has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence over the past year and a half. He is also expected to play a key role for his nation in the World Cup.

With 64 goals and 51 assists for Leipzig, Nkunku’s performances have not gone unnoticed by Real Madrid, who are eyeing him as the ideal attacking partner for the likes of Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior.

However, the report suggests Nkunku is already in advanced talks with Chelsea over a potential move to Stamford Bridge. And unless there is no surprise twist, the Blues are likely to wrap up the signing of the Leipzig superstar.

Real Madrid, therefore, are looking for other alternatives in the market. The upcoming World Cup should give many players the platform to perform at the highest level of football, with Los Blancos closely monitoring the forwards, in particular.

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.
