Real Madrid will wait until 2024 to see if they can sign Haaland or Mbappe – report



The last summer transfer window saw Real Madrid miss out on two of their top attacking targets. Carlo Ancelotti’s side had their eyes firmly set on a move for Kylian Mbappe and looked set to sign him, until the Frenchman made a last-minute U-turn and renewed with PSG.

Meanwhile, Erling Haaland was also on Real Madrid’s radar, but seeing that they were keen on Mbappe, the Norwegian decided to sign for Manchester City, leaving the Merengues without both of their top centre-forward targets.

However, Real Madrid are continuing to keep tabs on the situations of both Haaland and Mbappe and will wait until 2024 to see if they can sign either of them, reports MARCA.

2024 will be a key year for Los Blancos as that will be when Endrick will arrive from Palmeiras to reinforce the attack. That is also when Karim Benzema’s time at the Santiago Bernabeu could come to an end, with the club planning to offer him a one-year extension this year.

So, despite Endrick’s arrival, Real Madrid could need to sign another top-quality centre-forward, with Haaland and Mbappe on their agenda.

It has been widely reported that Haaland has a release clause worth around €180 million that will come into force in 2024, which Real Madrid can trigger to sign him up.

Meanwhile, Mbappe renewed his contract with PSG only by two years until 2024. While there is an option for an additional twelve months, it will only be enforced if the player agrees as well.

However, as per recent reports, Mbappe wants to leave Paris for Madrid in 2024, when he would be a free agent.

For now, Florentino Perez & co. will continue to keep a close watch on the attacking duo and see how their situations develop over the coming months before deciding whether to pull the trigger in 2024.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
