After winning 4 Champions League’s titles in the span of 5 years, Real Madrid had a season to forget in 2018/19 and they haven’t been improving a lot this season, which means they might be preparing to raid the transfer market in order to reinforce their squad.
ERLING HAALAND SHOULD ARRIVE IN THE SUMMER ALREADY
One of the most desired players on the planet these days is the Norwegian goal scorer Erling Haaland who has been making a simply amazing season playing for RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund.
He has 40 goals scored and 9 assists on 33 matches in the 2019/20 season, on a truly exceptional record that puts the 19-year-old attacker amongst the elite of strikers around the world. Well, one of Real Madrid’s problems since
Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure has been the absence of a true goal scorer that allows them to capitalize on the good football they generally tend to play.
The French Karim Benzema started this season very well, but he has been losing momentum and he has 19 goals scored and 9 assists on 36 matches, presenting a record very inferior to Haaland’s and at 32 years of age, he could really use a partner in attack at Real Madrid that would allow him to rest more regularly.
On the other hand, the big trump card for the attack this season has been a complete fiasco. The Serbian attacker Luka Jovic wasted the opportunity to assert himself for Real Madrid and he only has 2 goals scored in 24 matches played for Los Blancos and he is already on his way out.
IT’S URGENT TO REINFORCE THE OFFENSIVE SECTOR
Upon the data provided and looking at Real Madrid’s decrease in terms of goals scored since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, it seems clear that the club will have to recur to the market to secure a true goal scorer this summer.
Erling Haaland is the future of worldwide strikers and coming into the club with only 19 years of age, he might perfectly become an offensive reference for a lot of years at the Spanish club.

After having signed with Borussia Dortmund in January, the Norwegian striker might be on his way out about 6 months later for an amount 4 times higher and it will be the value of the offer that might convince the German club to relinquish their star.
Haaland cost Borussia Dortmund 20 million Euros and he might leave half a year later for around 80 million. It will be an excellent deal, although the club’s board probably wanted to keep him around for some more time. That won’t be easy, with the desire of clubs such as Real Madrid…
KYLIAN MBAPPE IN 2021
Real Madrid’s other great target in the near future will be the sensational French striker Kylian Mbappe. However, PSG’s attacker will only be possible to sign in a year when his contract is closer to expiring. Paris St-Germain doesn’t want to renounce their biggest asset so soon, but they shouldn’t have any say in case they aren’t able to renew with the player until June of 2021. Mbappe finishes his contract in 2022 and he hasn’t been giving signs that he is interested in renewing his contract.
That way, the possibility of the French club having to sell him in the Summer of 2021 to secure some money before they have to let him go on a free transfer in January of 2022. It is with that in mind that Real Madrid should make a go for Haaland at first and then Mbappe to gather a truly diabolical attacking duo that is also very young.

The player that won the World Cup playing for France in 2018 has 30 goals scored and 17 assists in 33 matches this season, and combining his numbers with Haaland, we can understand the power that Real Madrid might have if they manage to accomplish their objectives on the next two transfer windows.
Besides that, Mbappe would come into the club with only 22 years of age and he would join Haaland who’s only 20-years-old, being able to form a due for several years that would force the club to make a strong investment in the present but that should ensure the club a lot of success during the next decade.
ACHIEVABLE PLAN THAT WILL COUNT WITH COMPETITION
This is a plan that can be possible. However, it is normal for other European giants not to be interested in letting Real Madrid ensure two of the biggest pearls of world football and that way once again become an emerging force of European football.
Clubs like Barcelona, Manchester United or Liverpool can get in the way of the fight for these two players which means the next two transfer windows are promising in terms of the fate of two of the most promising football players on the planet.
