Kylian Mbappe. Erling Haaland. Cristiano Ronaldo. Harry Kane. There are so many “Galactic” players linked to Real Madrid that you can’t help but feel that Madridistas may be headed for a disappointment given the current economic climate. But Haaland and Mbappe are the clear priorities for Los Blancos, and if anyone can pull off a miracle transfer, then it is Madrid president Florentino Perez.

If Real can sign one of those superstar attackers, they likely won’t have much money for depth transfers. But if they cannot sign a big star, they may have to “settle” for some less-heralded names to fill out the rest of their roster. Another summer without any signings could hurt the team significantly, especially after the wear-and-tear of this ridiculous 2020-2021 campaign.

Not every player on Real Madrid’s radar should be a bona fide superstar. They should also have interest in signing undervalued players who have the upside to become stars or can help the team’s depth, especially with the likes of Lucas Vazquez and Isco expected to leave the club in the summer 2021 transfer window.

Here are five under-the-radar transfer targets Madridistas should be aware of as the final months of the 2020-2021 campaign tick down. These are players capable of filling in at positions where Real may not have the most depth.
