Real Madrid Takes the Lead in the Race to Secure the Signature of a €150 Million Player

Real Madrid’s Forward Dilemma and the Potential Pursuit of Rafael Leao

Real Madrid finds themselves in dire need of reinforcements in the forward positions. The squad was already thin up top following the departure of Karim Benzema, and an injury to Vinicius Junior has left Carlo Ancelotti with limited options. The current pairing of Rodrygo and Joselu in the 4-4-2 formation appears to be a stopgap solution.

In the event of an injury to either of them, the prospect of a suitable replacement is uncertain, with Brahim Diaz being a potential candidate. However, the question remains: is Diaz up to the task of being a starter for Real Madrid?

With the summer transfer window now closed, and Real Madrid historically refraining from mid-season signings, reinforcements are more likely to arrive next summer. It appears that the club may already have plans in motion.

According to reports from Fichajes, Real Madrid and Liverpool are emerging as frontrunners in the race to secure the services of Rafael Leao. AC Milan is reportedly seeking a transfer fee in the range of €150 million to part ways with the Portuguese international.

Leao recently signed a contract extension with AC Milan, indicating that the Italian club is under no immediate pressure to part with him.

Having joined AC Milan in 2019, Leao has shown continuous improvement and, at 24 years old, is regarded as one of the brightest talents in football. According to Transfermarkt statistics, he has contributed 2 goals and 2 assists in just 4 Serie A appearances this season.

While Leao undoubtedly possesses exceptional talent, questions arise about his fit within Real Madrid’s squad. He primarily operates on the left flank, a position already occupied by Vinicius Junior. Additionally, the impending arrival of Kylian Mbappe appears increasingly likely, despite the ongoing twists in that long-running saga.
