Plan C of Real Madrid if the transfers of Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland fail

Real Madrid have a plan C in place in case efforts for Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland fail to bear fruit.

The white team’s priority is to strengthen the attacking front for the 2024/2025 season with a star figure and in case the main objectives are not realized, Madrid consider the possibility of turning their eyes to Victor Osimhen.

Napoli’s Nigerian striker is set to extend his contract with Napoli until 2028, with a €130m release clause he would be willing to undertake to secure the striker’s services, thus demonstrating his interest in including an excellent reference on the offensive front.

This strategy represents a solid backup plan in case efforts for its primary targets do not materialize for the transfer of Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland in the summer of 2024.

Calciomercato has reported that Los Blancos are willing to spend 130 million euros to pay the Nigerian striker’s release clause.

However, the competition for Osimhe is very high, as English clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal are also competing for the player.

The 24-year-old Nigerian is going through an excellent form, where in 16 appearances this season with Napoli, he has scored eight goals and assisted three others.
