Real Madrid want to strengthen THREE sectors ahead of the January transfer window.
Real Madrid have mapped out their transfer plan for 2023, with three areas of Carlo Ancelotti’s squad the club want to improve.
Los Blancos may be Champions League holders, but president Florentino Perez’s aim is to sign young talents to lay the foundations for the club’s next big era at the Bernabeu.
The two French internationals Aurélien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga are proof of this in midfield, while in attack Rodrygo and Vini Junior are outstanding examples.
Although the January transfer window is only a few weeks away, Real Madrid are working with the 2023 summer period in mind, according to Sport, and will be targeting three new signings: a midfielder, a winger and a striker.
Madrid face a ‘complex’ challenge
Ancelotti’s side could find it more difficult to realize their priorities in the transfer market, with the possibility of securing their two main targets described as ‘complex’.
Jude Bellingham is the main target in midfield, but intense competition is expected to come from Premier League clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United. Nevertheless, reports suggest that Madrid are ready to go the extra mile for him.
In attack, it is Endrick, the prodigy of Palmeiras, that the people of Madrid want to recruit. It should be noted that if Real Madrid manage to land the Brazilian, he won’t be able to join the team until 2024 due to FIFA rules.
The winger’s identity is less clear, although a Brahim Diaz return from Milan isn’t ruled out.
Changes could also occur in the defense, although these depend on the movements of players. Ferland Mendy’s position at the club looks uncertain while at the heart of the backline, Los Blancos are counting on Nacho signing a new contract.
So while Real Madrid have vaguely defined the three players they want to sign in 2023, that list is fluid and depends on the club’s ability to persuade those among the seven out-of-contract stars in their squad that they wish to keep to stay.
