This past summer was quite entertaining for Real Madrid, but that hasn’t resulted in good things for Los Blancos, who are ready to raise the bar next year and sign big names that can take them to recover their best form.

Madrid are reportedly eyeing the signatures of Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Fabian Ruiz for the summer of 2020. Los Blancos have had a decent start to the season, but that doesn’t convince anybody that things are going good for the club. This summer, Real made several high-profile signings in Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy, Luka Jovic, and Rodrygo. However, none of these players have had much of an impact so far.

According to Diario Gol, Florentino Perez is eager to make three signings next summer in the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba, and Fabian Ruiz. This report claims that the trio would cost Los Blancos around €450 million. It is understood that Mbappe would cost €230 million while €140 million and €80 million would be the fees to sign Pogba and Ruiz, respectively.

Diario Gol also note that these three transfer could trigger the club to sell Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. They need to change more things than they did last summer and adding these three stars could help them lift their level once again.

Mbappe, Pogba, and Ruiz are all quality and young players who would be fine additions to Real Madrid’s squad. If Los Blancos are to buy all of them, then they’ll have to let go of some of their assets to afford these ambitious moves.

Neither of them would be easy, though, as there are other big teams interested in these players, so Madrid will have to step up.
