5 Players Real Madrid can target this transfer window

The transfer season is fast approaching and clubs would be gearing up to boost their squads by bringing some productive players who could be a part of the longer process in their dugout. Real Madrid is one of the clubs that would be keen to strengthen the squad after the departure of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane. Martin Odegaard too left the club for Arsenal FC.

The Los Blancos are at the 2nd position in the La Liga table and manager Carlo Ancelotti would want his side to keep up the momentum. Real Madrid managed to sign David Alaba to tighten its defence but the team has witnessed some of their proven match-winners leave the club.

The Pandemic has affected Real Madrid financially like other clubs so the club hierarchy needs to rethink its strategy to add enough heft in the dugout. On the other hand, the team needs to create a bench strength for the future which is why the Los Blancos need to make some important signings. We take a look at 5 such players who Real Madrid might target in the upcoming transfer window.

Jules Kounde is one of the hottest properties in modern-day football at the moment. The 22-year-old can be an excellent option at the back and with Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane no longer part of the team, the Frenchman can be groomed for the future.

Kounde is already grabbing headlines with some impressive performances and playing for Real Madrid could help him gain insights for future challenges. Dani Carvajal is also facing injury issues so Kounde could be a vital addition.

#4 Paul Pogba

The charismatic midfielder has always left a huge impact while representing the national side as well as the clubs he has played for in his career. Real Madrid higher authorities were always interested in signing the Frenchman.

With hardly six months left in his Manchester United contract, the Los Blancos could try to entice him with a handsome fee. Even Manchester United might try to keep him at the club by offering him higher wages.

Pogba could add more vigour and creativity in the midfield. With Luka Modric ageing up Real Madrid might see Pogba as Modric’s successor in the future.

#3 Antonio Rudiger

The star of Chelsea’s defensive set-up is said to be in advanced discussions with Real Madrid and this deal is likely to materialize in the future. The 28-year-old was a prime target of some big clubs like Bayern Munich FC and Paris St Germain.

Chelsea had offered him a new offer but the German wasn’t satisfied with it. Rudiger is one of the best centre backs in world football at the moment and should the deal materialize it would add enough muscle in this Real Madrid defensive set-up.

#2 Erling Haaland

The future superstar of world football is looking in red hot form and Real Madrid higher authorities would surely have an eye on him. The 22-year-old has already registered some amazing statistics so far this season by scoring 9 goals in 6 Bundesliga games with 4 assists to his name.

The Norwegian has also scored 1 goal in 2 Champions League games. Haaland’s move to Real Madrid might give him a chance to win a major silverware and the striker would also look for personal growth at the club if he agrees to make a move. Real Madrid top hierarchy would look to entice the striker with an attractive offer.

#1 Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe was on the radar of many big clubs last season including Real Madrid and this time too, the Los Blancos are targeting the young star. Should the deal materialize Mbappe would add enough firepower at the front.

The Frenchman’s inclusion would add enough quality in attack and make the forward line more intense. The 23-year-old has already scored 6 goals in 12 Ligue 1 games with 6 assists to his name. Mbappe has also scored 1 goal in 4 Champions League games with 5 assists to his name.
