Top Real Madrid transfer targets

Real Madrid have dipped into the Brazilian market in search of talent once more with Reinier set to arrive from Flamengo in a deal worth €35 million (£29m/$39m).

Finer details of the move have ostensibly been agreed and the teenager will officially join the club when he turns 18, following compatriots Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr. in treading the path to the Spanish capital.

Outside of Reinier, it appears unlikely that Madrid will make much further noise in the transfer market this January, but Los Blancos are certainly on the lookout for further Galactico recruits.

Chief among the targets is Paul Pogba and speculation regarding the France international's future was sent into overdrive in January when his agent Mino Raiola was highly critical of Manchester United.

The outspoken super agent suggested that Old Trafford would even be a hostile environment for the likes of Pele and Diego Maradona, declaring that he wouldn't send any more of his players there.

Zidane has been a long-time admirer of Pogba, but has opted against fanning the flames of speculation.

Real have also been linked with Liverpool forward Sadio Mane after a stellar few seasons in Anfield red, which yielded a Champions League winner's medal and an African Player of the Year award.

Given Mane's rising stock, however, it would necessitate a mammoth bid in order to convince Liverpool to enter into business, not to mention the fact that the Senegal man is happy at Anfield.

Christian Eriksen is another player who was heavily linked with Madrid during the summer transfer window, but the Denmark star also has a long list of potential destinations, including Inter and Manchester United.

Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek and Inter forward Lautaro Martinez are also considered targets.

Potential Real Madrid exits

There were high hopes when James Rodriguez arrived at Real Madrid in 2014, but the Colombia international has not managed to reach the level expected of him.

Accordingly, he was shipped out on loan to Bayern Munich and, while he has returned to the Santiago Bernabeu this season, he has been tipped for a permanent exit from the club, with Everton a potential destination. 

Meanwhile, speculation surrounding the future of Gareth Bale has continued and Madrid chief Florentino Perez is said to be seeking a buyer for the Wales star.

Mariano Diaz looks likely to leave Real Madrid, but on a short-term move, with his former club Lyon reportedly keen. Espanyol have also been tipped to make a move for the striker.
