With poster boy Cristiano Ronaldo now in Italy with Juventus and alarm bells ringing after their 4-2 loss to local rivals Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid look primed to make a few signings before the transfer window slams shut.
The European champions have already brought in six foot six goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, young right-back Alvaro Odriozola and 18 year old wonderkid Vinicius Junior this summer.
It doesn’t look like they want to stop there, with numerous names being linked to the Spanish Capital.
With rumours that Luka Modric could head for the exit, who will the Spanish Giants bring in before September 1st?
Here, Mirror Sport look at five potential players that could be playing for the Los Blancos next season.
With the amount of talk there’s been about the Belgium making the switch to Madrid this summer you’d be surprised if it didn’t happen.
Florentino Perez still has a week to bring in the World Cup semi-finalist and there’s still a good chance it could happen.
Although Chelsea are claiming they wont sell Eden Hazard for any price, a big-money offer could sway the Blues.
Hazard looks like one of the best possible replacements for Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid are ready to make one last push for the world class forward.
There’s also been reports that fellow blues star Willian is potentially heading to Madrid too, as well as Marcos Alonso.
Don’t be surprised if you see a Chelsea player swap blue for white before the window closes.
The young talented midfielder has been linked to a number of clubs this season, including Chelsea and Manchester United.
But with the English transfer window now closed, Real Madrid can now try and snap up the youngster with less competition.
Italian journalist Arturo Diaconale has said there’s a 99 percent chance the Serb is staying at Lazio.
This draws us to the attention of the one percent. The report claims that the Italian club would be willing to let the highly-rated midfielder leave if an offer of €150 million came in.
It may be difficult for the Los Blancos to justify spending that much on the Serb but with his talent and the way the market is trending, anything could happen.
With Madrid desperate to find a new forward before the window closes, the Brazilian-born Spain international is being heavily linked with a move to the Spanish Capital.
The former Bolton Wanderers loanee is currently playing for Valencia and managed to bag 16 league goals last season.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Rodrigo has a close relationship with current Real boss Julen Lopetegui.
And with Marca reporting a 120 million Euro release clause, it’s very probable Rodrigo could be making a move inland as Valencia boss Marcelino has already brought in forwards Kevin Gameiro permanently and Michy Batshuayi on a season long-long.
It wouldn’t be a shock if we see him lining up with Gareth Bale and Sergio Ramos this season.
Another forward. Another release clause.
The Liverpool flop is a much cheaper alternative to his fellow compatriot Rodrigo with a reported €40 million buy-out clause. Aspas scored six more league goals last season than the Valencia player but is four years older.
Celta Vigo will be hoping to keep hold of their man, given he has scored 55 league goals in 101 games since returning from Liverpool.
However, when the European Champions come knocking, they normally get their way.
After being fined two weeks’ wages after failing to return to United’s pre-season tour in the US after the birth of his son, there are now reports Mourinho wants Martial out of the club after a poor showing against Brighton at the weekend.
Spanish outlet Marca have reported Mourinho wants the Frenchman gone.
Which could mean the Spanish club will attempt to buy the player.
Martial hasn’t had a brilliant time at the club since Mourinho came in two years ago and may need a new club to flourish.
Although they aren’t the only club vying for the 22-year-old, with reports Sevilla want the Frenchman too.
