For Real Madrid the revamp for the 2021/2022 has already started in the boardroom. Los Galácticos are still alive in the La Liga, sitting third, six points back of Atletico Madrid, and in the Champions League as they await their quarterfinal clash with Liverpool.
Nonetheless Zinedine Zidane would be looking to improve his squad with three world class names for the upcoming season as Madrid are looking to once again dominate the club soccer landscape. While Real Madrid, and many of the top clubs in the world, were hit hard by the covid-19 pandemic, as one of the top teams in the World, they will be looking to throw their weight around in signing at least 2 of the 3 names on their list.
That shortlist would make any manager and fans mouth water as it includes Kylian Mbappé, Erling Haaland, and Spurs front man Harry Kane. In some cases, talks have advanced and as Ser Deportivo has reported, Kane would be the second option to Mbappé and Haaland if those deals would fail to materialize.
Kylian Mbappé is in somewhat of a pickle at the board level at PSG, on one end the long-rumored deal for Lionel Messi has left many insiders stating that PSG will not be able to pay both players high wages. On the other hand, other insiders have stated that signing Mbappé to a long-term deal would be a much better option than a 34-year-old Messi. For Real Madrid, Kylian Mbappé has been on the radar since 2018 and the club will be looking to see how the Messi to PSG situation plays out and how they could capitalize on it.
Who doesn’t want Erling Haaland? Everyone, who can really afford him? Real Madrid and Manchester City. Haaland would be a prize catch for Real Madrid, Barcelona looks like they won’t be able to spend much in the summer window and Manchester City might make a move for Haaland and it could result in a bidding war, it will be a matter of who can seduce Haaland the best.
Harry Kane has long been rumored to go to Real Madrid and as a second option to Haaland it is still not a bad signing. Kane is at the prime of his career and on the sporting side it’s a no brainer, Spurs can’t compete with the aspirations of Real Madrid. The Madrid brass knows Kane will cost considerably less than Haaland and Mbappé and could be a great second option should one if not both transfers fall through.
