Real Madrid has been home to some of the biggest names in football history. They have moved away from their Galactico policy in recent years but continue to develop players into superstars of the game regardless. For example, Vinicius Junior is certainly someone who can reach those heights one day.
On the other hand, the club seem to be on the verge of signing Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund this summer. If it does indeed happen, it would be a major coup for them as well.
Of course, another player who has been linked with Real Madrid for a long, long time is Kylian Mbappe. The move has never transpired but he could be available as a free agent next summer, if he opts to not take up the one year extension option in his deal with PSG.
Mbappe is a superstar of the game. And signing him on a free transfer would immediately go down as one of the best moves in football history.

"“Do I see Mbappe at Madrid? Yes, they always sign the best. Mbappe at Real Madrid and Messi at Barcelona would be fantastic for La Liga.”"
It remains to be seen what the future holds for Mbappe. He looks set to stay on at PSG for another season at least.
On the other hand, the relationship between Real Madrid and PSG is rumoured to be frosty at the moment. Thus, one would expect the two to get involved in negotiations for Mbappe.
The French World Cup winner might have signed an extension with PSG not too long ago, but it was not a long-term deal and he could be available as a free agent as early as the summer of 2024. As a result, it feels like we have not seen the end of the Mbappe to Real Madrid saga yet.
