However, the club is also considering alternatives, including Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, indicating some uncertainty about Mbappe’s destination.
Erling Haaland of Manchester City has been viewed as a potential alternative to Mbappe, and Real Madrid has previously expressed interest in him. If they fail to secure Mbappe’s signing, Haaland may become a target.
Victor Osimhen of Napoli has now been added to Real Madrid’s list of alternatives. Napoli has set a €200 million price tag on the 24-year-old forward, but it’s unlikely that Real Madrid would pay such a sum.
Nevertheless, Osimhen’s future with Napoli is uncertain following recent social media posts that led to a rift between the player and the club.
Real Madrid is closely monitoring the situation, and Osimhen could become a viable option for them if Mbappe doesn’t join.
This report has surfaced just before Real Madrid’s match against Napoli, where Osimhen will be on display, potentially serving as a distraction tactic.
In any case, Osimhen’s impact last season for Napoli makes him an attractive option for clubs in need of a forward.
