In a bold move, Real Madrid is planning a summer spending spree that could reshape European football. The Spanish giants have never been shy of going for that Galactico-era summer transfer window, and 2024 could be that time.
According to AS, the Spanish powerhouse has set its sights on two of the most sought-after talents in the game—Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé and Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.

Los Blancos can begin their spending spree with Mbappé when the calendar turns to 2024. The La Liga side can talk with the Frenchman over a pre-contract that will start next season.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid will need to pay a substantial fee for Haaland. Nonetheless, the club is no stranger to making marquee signings, having previously brought in global superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo.
Since Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have left, they likely want that duo that will be at the forefront of their attack and have that global name attached to them, too.
Still, with Mbappé and Haaland battling for the Ballon d’Or, it’s hard seeing them being teammates.
