Which players could Real Madrid sign if they fail to get Mbappe this summer? 

Real Madrid may focus on Rasmus Hojlund, the emerging star at Manchester United, if their efforts to sign Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland fail this summer. Juni Calafat, the top scout for Los Blancos, has reportedly been keeping a close eye on the Danish forward for a number of months, according to sources from Defensa Central (via centredevils).

Real Madrid is aggressively looking for a top-tier number nine in order to enhance their offensive lineup as they have failed to replace their star striker Karim Benzema, who left them last summer. So far, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Joselu have tried to fill the space with their incredible performances but Ancelotti will eye a perfect 9.  Erling Haaland is also a target for them, even if Mbappe is still their first priority as the player will come for free and could end-up being the biggest bargain in football history. But if talks with either player fail, Hojlund becomes a competitive substitute.

The Manchester United striker is now on a roll and has attracted notice with his recent performances, especially after a bit of a difficult start at Old Trafford he was still seen very comfortable with the ball. In 29 matches, Hojlund has 11 goals and 2 assists, making him a compelling alternative for Real Madrid should their main objectives fail to materialize.
