REAL MADRID could boast a starting XI that rivals their peak Galactico years as they eye huge transfers for Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.

The superstar pair are both high on Los Blancos' wishlist next summer.

And they could bring both strikers into the Bernabeu for a combined £65million due to Mbappe's contract expiring and Haaland's release clause.

The duo would form one of the best partnerships in footballing history as Real look to dominate domestically and across Europe once again.

Mbappe and Haaland could even be joined by Mo Salah in a blistering front line.

The Liverpool hero is yet to sign a new contract at Anfield and Real Madrid may try and tempt him with the offer of a new challenge in Spain alongside two of his Ballon d'Or rivals.

Talk of a swap deal involving Eden Hazard has also been mooted.

In midfield, Casemiro is a firm favourite at the Bernabeu and is the youngest of their current trio alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric – the latter turns 37 at the beginning of next season.



Paul Pogba remains a long-term transfer target.

Like his French team-mate Mbappe, his contract is up next summer and the ex-Juventus star could be ready to leave Manchester United for the Bernabeu.

That would please Paul Scholes who never wants Pogba to pull on the Red Devils shirt again following his horror red card against Liverpool.

He could link up well with international pal Eduardo Camavinga, who arrived from Rennes this summer, while Aurelien Tchouameni is another option.

With plenty of cash invested into the attacking areas, Real may stick largely with what they have at the back.

Thibaut Courtois, Ferland Mendy and El Clasico hero David Alaba are easy picks while Lucas Vazquez continues to impress at right-back ahead of Dani Carvajal.

The other centre-back spot could see change, though, with Antonio Rudiger and Jules Kounde both linked with moves.

However, with plenty of incomings, boss Carlo Ancelotti would also need to push some players out through the exit door.

Hazard could be one of those as his nightmare slump continues while Gareth Bale's deal is up next summer and surely won't be renewed.

Isco, Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio are all likely casualties.

But Karim Benzema still has plenty to offer and will keep Haaland and Mbappe on their toes, while the club remain keen on the likes of Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo and Fede Valverde.
