With several of the regulars in the Real Madrid setup entering the final phase of their careers, Los Blancos have already begun to build for the future.

To that end, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe are close to landing the first piece of the puzzle in the form of Endrick. Just 16 years of age, the Palmeiras wonderkid is set to sign for Real Madrid imminently, although he will join the club in 2024, only after he turns 18.

The teenage striker is seen as the future No. 9 for Real Madrid, who will need to move on from current captain Karim Benzema, who is set to turn 35 years old in a few days.

And, according to AS, the Merengues are visualizing a frontline comprising Endrick as the centre-forward, flanked by fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes for 2024.

However, at the same time, the report indicates that despite Endrick’s imminent signing Real Madrid continue to harbour hopes of adding another marquee striker in the form of Erling Haaland.

It had been claimed that Los Blancos had decided against pursuing the Norwegian in the future and bank on Endrick. But in a team like Real Madrid high-level competition is necessary and despite reports suggesting otherwise, Haaland continues to be on the agenda.

Moving to the middle of the park, Real Madrid already have most of the puzzle sorted. Federico Valverde is growing into a leader of the team and will be a permanent fixture in the centre of the park for years to come.

In Aurelien Tchouameni, the Spanish giants have unearthed the ideal anchorman who has ensured Casemiro’s departure has not been felt and they expect him to continue growing in the role for a long time.

While Eduardo Camavinga is also present as an option, Real Madrid hope to add Jude Bellingham to their roster in 2023, as they look to replace Luka Modric in the long run. The 19-year-old England star is bound for greatness and Los Blancos have made him a priority for next year.

As for the defence, the report indicates that Real Madrid expect Vinicius Tobias to replace Dani Carvajal at right-back, suggesting that the club might take up the €18 million purchase option on the Brazilian.

David Alaba, who signed only last year and is contracted until 2026, will likely be moved out to left-back to form a centre-back pairing between Eder Militao and Antonio Rudiger, while Thibaut Courtois, still in his prime, will be expected to continue in goal in 2024.

Real Madrid’s planned XI for 2024:

Vinicius • Endrick (Haaland) • Rodrygo
Bellingham  Tchouameni  Valverde
Alaba • Rudiger • Militao  Tobias
Courtois

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.
