Erling Haaland will join Manchester City in the summer and the rest of Europe’s elite clubs are looking for a new gem to strengthen their offensive line.
Real Madrid is one of the clubs combing the market in their quest to find the next big thing, the young striker who can give them a guaranteed number of goals each year for the next decade.
Karim Benzema has taken over from Cristiano Ronaldo, but has not received any help for the past three seasons. Neither Luka Jovic nor Mariano Diaz has made it through, while Vinicius Junior has been gaining momentum this season and Rodrygo has excelled in the past few matches.
“We want the best in the world,” said Real Madrid, who are looking for a player to complement Kylian Mbappe in attack.
Fede Valverde, Vinicius, Rodrygo and Eduardo Camavinga are examples of Real Madrid’s efforts to sign great players and help them develop at the club.
No need to be rushed by Los Blancos, as the presence of Benzema and the signing of Mbappe give them time to think about their next move.
More space without Haaland
It may seem strange, but Haaland’s move to Manchester City could make young Brazilian striker Endrick decide to join Real Madrid.
If the Norwegian joined Real Madrid, the Palmeiras striker’s environment believes that a move to Los Blancos would have been complicated.
The talented Brazilian could arrive at Real Madrid in a couple of seasons, but if Haaland signed for Los Blancos, the doors would have been completely closed for Endrick.
When Endrick turns 18, the Norwegian will be 24, making it impossible for both of them to enjoy equal playing time.
The Palmeiras striker is one of the options that Real Madrid is considering. He is a unique talent, as all the sporting directors who have seen him play have admitted. Endrick is a target for Real Madrid, but the club cannot approach him at the moment due to his young age.
Endrick and Moukoko
Yusuf Moukoko is another young man who admired his latest performance. After playing in the youth ranks of Borussia Dortmund, the 17-year-old striker has already made a leap into the first team, but is seen as a player with less potential than the Brazilian.
The Benfica striker who won the European Youth League, Henrique Araujo, is another great player with huge potential, with Jorge Mendes as his agent. Roko Simic of Red Bull Salzburg is one of those youngsters who is currently on Real Madrid’s radar.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid could also turn their attention to the young strikers who are already in the elite, but who are not yet considered superstars. The only problem with this class of players is that their transfer fee will be high, but Los Blancos would not rule out making a move if there is an opportunity in the market.
Julian Alvarez was one of those strikers, but he also signed with Manchester City. Aleksander Isaak is one of those players too. He once came close to joining Madrid but chose Borussia Dortmund.
