Real Madrid are expected to make a Galactico signing in the near future. For years, they have been linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe and with his contract at Paris Saint-Germain set to run out next summer, there have been suggestions that Los Blancos will try to agree a pre-contract with the Frenchman in January. Let's see if it materialises or not.

Erling Haaland is another player who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for a while. The Norwegian superstar's stock has continued to rise since his time at RB Salzburg and he finished second in the Ballon d'Or race behind Lionel Messi this year. He also won a treble in his debut campaign with Manchester City, breaking several records along the way.

Either Mbappe or Haaland would be considered as a dream signing. But it goes without saying that pulling off a move of that magnitude would not be simple, even for Real Madrid.

The club seem to be keeping all options open as a result. As reported by SPORT, in the event that the main objectives do not materialise, Real Madrid consider the possibility of turning its sights towards Víctor Osimhen.

Osimhen is considered amongst the best strikers in Europe right now. He inspired Napoli towards their first Serie A title since the time of Diego Maradona at the club last season.

As reported by 90min, Osimhen has agreed in principle to sign a new deal at Napoli. The club have agreed to insert a release clause worth €120 million into his contract.

Of course, that is a steep figure. But at the same time, it makes sense in modern football. Osimehn is arguably the best striker in world football right now after Haaland and Harry Kane.
