Real Madrid want to keep working on transfers by spending less in the transfer window and signing on free transfers next summer, MySportDab reports.
Los Blancos have drawn up a five-man shortlist of potential free agents to sign next summer.
According to AS, Real Madrid’s five-shortlist includes Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe, Leon Goretzka, Antonio Rudiger and Eduardo Camavinga.
Four of the five players contracts are set to expire at the end of next season, making them easy options for Real Madrid.
Due to the ongoing financial problems at Real Estate, they have only signed David Alaba from Bayern Munich on a free transfer so far this summer.
The club has sold some important players like Sergio Ramos to PSG and Raphael Varane to Manchester United for £42m.
The sales of those two players has helped Real Madrid reduce their massive wage bill and provide some cash.
MySportDab understands that Real want to repeat their free-agent success this summer by monitoring those five players contract situations.
Mbappe remains the main player that Real Madrid want to sign this summer.
Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is expected to hold talks with Real Madrid this week about the 22-year-old’s future.
Mbappe has refused to sign a contract extension and is determined to join Real Madrid.
For Paul Pogba, Manchester United Still have hope that he would sign a new contract very soon despite having one year left on his current contract.
Pogba’s reluctance to sign a new contract with United has been a long story, and the Frenchman remains pleased with the signing of top-quality players like Varane and Jadon Sancho.
However, Real Madrid face serious competition from PSG for Pogba as they are ready to even sign the midfielder this summer if United agree to sell.
Another man on Real Madrid’s shortlist is Leon Goretzka.
Goretzka has been a key player for Bayern Munich and Germany over the years, and new Coach Julian Nagelsmann wants the 26-year-old to sign a new contract.
After the exit of Ramos and Varane, Real Madrid now have interest in Chelsea centre-back Antonio Rudiger.
Rudiger is expected to become a free agent next year if he does not sign a new contract.
The German is currently considering his offers before signing a new long-term contract at Chelsea.
The last player on Real Madrid’s shortlist is Eduardo Camavinga.
Camavinga is regarded as one of the most exciting young midfielders in European football, and has attracted interest from top clubs.
He is yet to sign a new contract with Rennes, who are ready to sell the 18-year-old.
Camavinga wants to leave Rennes, but a deal has not been agreed so far this summer.
Real Madrid will do everything possible to sign him next summer if he becomes a free agent.
