Still interested in Kylian Mbappé, Real Madrid could look into two other PSG players in the years to come.
A few days ago, Real Madrid took a real slap in the face from Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final second leg. Beaten 4-0 by the English champion, Carlo Ancelotti’s team must imperatively strengthen during the next transfer window. Some players seem more than ever at the end of the cycle, like Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema, Luka Modric or Dani Carvajal.
For this reason, Real Madrid want to continue recruiting what the leaders consider to be the best youngsters in the world. After having offered Camavinga, Tchouaméni, Vinicius or even Rodrygo in recent years, the Casa Blanca club intends to continue in this direction. And according to information from the Sports Zone insider account, this will directly impact Paris Saint-Germain for a simple reason: three players from the French capital club are targeted by Real Madrid in the short or medium term.
Real Madrid targets Mbappé, Hakimi and Nuno Mendes!
The first of them is unsurprisingly named Kylian Mbappe. it’s about the “total priority” recruitment for the summer of 2024, when the vice-captain of PSG will be free of any contract. While waiting for the potential arrival of Mbappé, Real Madrid would like to recruit a secondary striker in order to be able to rotate Karim Benzema. In the defensive sector, Real Madrid also wants to renew itself and in the right-back position, a return ofAshraf Hakimi is hoped.
The Moroccan international is very appreciated by the staff of Real Madrid so much so that the merengue club tried to bring him back this year. An offer refused by Hakimi, who closed the door to Real in the short term but who sees himself coming back to win in one or two years. Another PSG side makes the merengue club salivate in the person of Nuno Mendes. To date, the Portuguese is Real Madrid’s No. 2 option in this position behind Bayern Munich’s Canadian international, Alphonso Davies.
Stronger rivalry between Real and PSG?
Florentino Pérez believes that the recruitment of a left side is a priority this summer in order to be able to use Eduardo Camavinga in his training position, namely in midfield. Describe as a “ambitious player”Nuno Mendes could give in to the sirens of Real Madrid within a year, if PSG continues to stagnate in Europe. Suffice to say that the threat of the 2022 Spanish champion has never been so strong on Paris Saint-Germain as the transfer window approaches because it no longer only concerns Kylian Mbappé.
