How Real Madrid could line up in 2023-24 featuring three new signings including £100m man

Los Blancos are expected to be active this summer, and we could see plenty of fresh faces

Real Madrid suffered a disappointing campaign by their own high standards, crashing out of the Champions League semi final after being thrashed by Manchester City and finishing 10 points behind Clasico rivals Barcelona in La Liga, leaving them with just one trophy to their name.

Change is expected, with older players making way for younger talents and significant spending expected in the summer transfer window.

We think that there could be as many as three new faces in the Starting XI next season, and here’s who we predict could be turning out for Los Blancos next season.

GK: Thibaut Courtois

Undisputed no.1, Courtois remains one of the best goalkeepers in World football and will certainly be between the posts for Los Blancos next season.

RB: Dani Carvajal

There have been murmurings that right-back is an area Real Madrid would like to improve on in the next 12-24 months, but Carvajal continues to have the faith of Carlo Ancelotti and, given the need to spend in other areas this summer, he is likely to get at least another season in the Real Madrid defence.

CB: Eder Militao

Forever improving since his arrival from FC Porto in 2019, the Brazilian defender is growing into his role well at the Santiago Bernabeu and, still just 25-years-old, is likely to be there for the foreseeable future too.

CB: David Alaba

LB: Alphonso Davies

The first potential major arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu could come in the form of Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies. The Canadian has revealed that he is unhappy with the chaos at the Allianz arena at board level, and his agents have reportedly even been in talks with the Spanish giants over a potential move.

Ferland Mendy is often on the injury table, and while Eduardo Camavinga and David Alaba have both impressed when used there, it is felt that another defender will be added this summer.

DM: Aurelian Tchouameni

Growing into his new role nicely at the base of midfield, he will be part of Real Madrid’s new look side heading into next season and will likely rotate with Eduardo Camavinga for Ancelotti’s side next season.

CM: Jude Bellingham

The man that everyone wanted this summer, and Real Madrid got him. Setting them back over 100m euros, the Borussia Dortmund man is set to make the switch to the Santiago Bernabeu, where he will be one of the first names on the teamsheet next season injuries permitting.

CM: Federico Valverde

Often thrust onto the right hand side, Valverde reportedly wants to return to a more central role this season, which will free up another player to join the Real Madrid attack. More than capable of reverting back to a central role, the Uruguayan could form an excellent partnership with Bellingham.

RW: Rodrygo

Increasingly important to Real Madrid last season, Rodrygo has made the step from bit-part player to challenging for a first team spot and will continue to hold down his place next season despite competition from the returning Brahim Diaz.

ST: Harry Kane

Karim Benzema’s departure has left Ancelotti’s side scrambling for a replacement, but the most obvious is Harry Kane. With one year left on his contract, he would cost around £100m and would leave Los Blancos not facing too much of a downgrade on the current Ballon D’or Holder next season, a move that could help them wrestle back trophies both domestically and across Europe.

LW: Vinicius Jr

Now the undisputed star of the Real Madrid side, Vinicius Jr will be a Real Madrid player next season barring a major change or a desire to take a stand against the racism he has faced in the last 12 months.

Managing 10 goals and 10 assists in La Liga last season, he will be expected to kick on once more next campaign.
