Real Madrid are staring at a hugely important summer transfer window as they will need to start planning for a transition from the old guard to the new generation.

The likes of Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Nacho are entering the final phase of their respective careers and Los Blancos need to lay out proper succession plans in place.

Amidst this, MARCA has come out with a detailed report regarding the transfer plans of Real Madrid for the summer window later this year.

According to the report from the Spanish publication, Real Madrid have made it a priority to sign Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund to reinforce their midfield unit before the start of the next season.

The 19-year-old has been on the club’s agenda for a long while now and they intend to pull the trigger on his signing this summer, although competition from Liverpool and Manchester City could make things tricky.

Apart from Bellingham, Real Madrid will also strengthen the left-back position, with former academy ace Fran Garcia set to return from Rayo Vallecano, with the Merengues understood to have triggered their buyback option on the 23-year-old.

While Garcia will arrive to bolster the left-back slot, the report states that Real Madrid have no intentions to sign a new right-back in the summer. The La Liga champions have confidence in Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez and are ready to back youngsters like Vinicius Tobias and Alex Jimenez.

But, a new attacking reinforcement is likely to be brought in by Los Blancos as Mariano Diaz is set to move on when his contract expires while Eden Hazard, who has succumbed to yet another injury, will also likely be moved on.

So, as per the report, a central midfielder in Bellingham, a new left-back in the form of Garcia, and an attacker is what Real Madrid are targeting for the summer.

    It’s also time Real Madrid brings on board a new and dynamic coach as well as a new and younger President of the club. Ancelotti and Florentino have outlived their usefulness. They are stuck in the past of what soccer should be today.They lack creativity and boldness to spur our dear club forward.

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.
