Mercato : le favori du Real pour oublier Mbapp – Football

After the failure of Kylian Mbapp, Real Madrid will react on the transfer market by recruiting at least one world-class striker this summer. And in the list drawn up by the Madrid board, one file seems to be a priority: Rafael Leo.

Champion with Milan, Leo was voted best player of the season in Serie A.

Touched in his pride, Florentino Prez will react. The president of Real Madrid was personally involved in the transfer of Kylian Mbapp but, like all the people of Madrid, he was due.

The striker extended with Paris Saint-Germain until 2025, and he embarrassed the White House. After having abandoned the Erling Hland track – left Manchester City – to concentrate on the Frenchman, the Merengue club owes its supporters a Galactic. But which one?

Five names to forget Mbapp

According to AS, the Madrid management has drawn up a list of five world-class attackers to forget the failure of Mbapp. Only (very) heavy: Sadio Man and Mohamed Salah, future opponents in the Champions League final, Robert Lewandowski, in open war with his management to leave, Darwin Nuez, revelation of the season on the side of Benfica, and Rafael Leo , Italian champion and best player in Serie A. And this last track has taken a lead over the others, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

According to the pink paper daily, the White House is preparing an offer of 120 million euros for the former Lille resident! Who, it is true, has similar characteristics to Mbapp in terms of speed and explosiveness, a little less in terms of finishing. Problem: Milan is not a seller, but then not at all. On the contrary, since the Rossoneri even want to extend their 22-year-old nugget – whose current contract will expire in 2024 – until 2026, with a significantly increased salary.

Milan wants to extend it, but…

It remains to be seen whether the Italian champion will actually be able to say no to an XXL offer like this. And even if he succeeded, the Merengues would only have to add 30 million euros to reach the amount of his release clause. Our colleagues do not, however, give any information on the player’s desires but, when Real Madrid knocks on the door, few are courted who refuse the advances of a formation which could raise its 14th Champions League on Saturday. Mbapp, however, proved that it was still possible.

The door is therefore not closed, because money reigns and clause there is, but Madrid will have to force. Still according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, President Prez intends to rely on the good relations maintained with Milan over the years and joint transfers (Tho Hernandez and Brahim Diaz recently, editor’s note) to get what he wants. The Madrid boss will also have to deal with competition, and in particular that of… Paris Saint-Germain.
