Real Madrid are considering signing Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic as an emergency solution if Kylian Mbappe does not join the team this summer as per Madrid Universal. Manager Carlo Ancelotti is pushing the Real Madrid board to sign a new striker after the departure of Karim Benzema. The club is still hoping to sign Mbappe before the start of the new season and is closely monitoring PSG’s transfer movements.
However, there is some doubt about Mbappe ending up at Santiago Bernabeu this summer, as some outlets suggest that both the player and Madrid prefer a free transfer next year. If Mbappe does not arrive, Real Madrid will move for Vlahovic, potentially towards the end of the transfer window.
Vlahovic’s Market Value
Dusan Vlahovic has been attracting attention from top clubs, including Chelsea, due to his impressive performances at Fiorentina and his potential to become a world-class striker. Despite a less remarkable stint at Juventus, Vlahovic’s talent is undeniable, and he could thrive under Ancelotti’s guidance at Real Madrid. The 23-year-old Serbian international’s market value stands at €70 million.
Transfer Negotiations and Juventus’ Stance
Real Madrid and Juventus have reportedly agreed on a €70 million deal for Vlahovic, which will be executed if the Spanish club fails to sign Mbappe. The 23-year-old Serbian international is keen on leaving Juventus, and the Italian club is also looking to offload him due to financial issues. Juventus are open to selling Vlahovic, with reports suggesting that the player has requested to leave the club.
Chelsea’s Interest and Potential Swap Deal
Chelsea are also interested in signing Vlahovic and is talking with Juventus about a potential deal that would see Romelu Lukaku move to the Allianz Stadium. Chelsea and Juventus are currently negotiating a player-plus cash swap deal. Real Madrid’s move for Vlahovic could be affected by Chelsea’s interest, and it remains to be seen how this story unfolds in the coming weeks.
