Real Madrid are reportedly prioritising the signings of Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland over bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to the Bernabeu. Florentino Perez looks poised to sign a new Galactico this summer but Los Blancos will have to pick between rivals Mbappe or Haaland due to the value of the two superstars.
Real Madrid are now facing the prospect of a trophy-less season under Zinedine Zidane unless he can deliver yet another Champions League trophy.
Should he fail to do so, there could be changes in the dugout before the start of next season.
Karim Benzema has had to do it all alone this term with Real Madrid in desperate need of attacking reinforcements.
The club have grown tired of £88.5million man Eden Hazard who has struggled with injuries and they are expected to add more firepower this summer.

Jorge Mendes is said to be in contact with Real Madrid over the return of Ronaldo after three seasons in Turin.
However, according to Spanish outlet AS, the transfer is only a back-up option if they cannot land Mbappe or Haaland.
The Frenchman is their top target but Paris Saint-Germain are keen on tying their star man down to a new deal.
Mbappe has remained coy on his future despite holding initial talks over a contract extension.
The World Cup winner has always dreamed of representing the club one day, after visiting their training ground while playing for Monaco in 2013.

At the time, Mbappe’s family did not feel it was the right moment to move to Madrid but now things are likely to be different.
Meanwhile, the race for Haaland is now hotting up with Borussia Dortmund’s Champions League hopes hanging by a threat.
Should they fail to qualify, the Norwegian frontman looks set for a summer move away from Signal Iduna Park.
He has a £64million release clause that becomes active next summer but Dortmund could be set to play on that and demand upwards of £100m in the coming months.
In the background is Ronaldo, who is in the final 18 months of his Juventus contract.
Juve director Fabio Paratici recently claimed the club have opted to keep him for the final year of his deal.
“We’ve decided to keep Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s the best player in the world and he’ll stay with us,” he told Sky Italia.
However, AS claim Juventus would still like to offload him should they receive an offer of £21.5m.
The ball is firmly in Real Madrid’s court and after Gareth Bale confirmed his plan to return to Spain next season, there is talk of a potential BBC (Benzema, Bale, Cristiano) reunion in the papers.
