Real Madrid have been rocked by recent reports linking Karim Benzema with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu.

Although the veteran forward was almost on the verge of renewing his contract until 2024, it appears he is now considering a move to Saudi Arabia, after receiving a lucrative offer worth up to €200 million.

In the midst of such uncertainty over Benzema’s future, Real Madrid have set their sights on Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has emerged as a potential candidate to replace the ageing forward next season.

But with reports projecting Real Madrid to go after a top striker in 2024, the idea that Firmino could become the replacement for Benzema has not been ruled out at all, reports Cadena SER.

Journalist Ramon Alvarez de Mon also adds that Real Madrid’s plan is not to spend much when signing a replacement for Benzema this summer. That is where Firmino appears to be an excellent option, as the Brazilian’s contract at Anfield expires at the end of the season.

Having been involved in almost 200 goals during his time at Liverpool while winning the Champions League and the Premier League titles, Firmino’s track record makes him an absolute bargain for Real Madrid, especially on a free transfer.

Not to mention, Firmino is quite a versatile striker, who is capable of operating in the wider areas of the pitch. He can, therefore, prove to be a smart piece of investment for Los Blancos this coming summer.

However, Real Madrid’s priority remains the contract renewal of Benzema. As per Ramon, the Frenchman is planning to leave the Bernabeu this summer, but club president Florentino Perez has asked the player to reconsider his decision.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
