Real Madrid will look for all three points when they face Granada in La Liga on Saturday. Los Blancos are currently third in the league table after 12 games.
Meanwhile, Madrid are planning three Bosman moves next summer. Elsewhere, star winger Gareth Bale is determined to play for Los Blancos after picking up an injury on international duty, says manager Carlo Ancelotti.
On that note, here's a look at the key Real Madrid transfer stories as on 20th November 2021.
Real Madrid plotting triple Bosman move next summer
Real Madrid are plotting three Bosman moves next summer, according to The Daily Star.
Los Blancos remain eager to bolster their squad next year. The La Liga giants have already identified three players they want to sign for free at the end of the season. Top of their wish list is Kylian Mbappe, who could arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu for free. The PSG star is in the final year of his current contract.
The Ligue 1 giants are desperate to extend Mbappe's stay at the Parc des Princes. However, Mbappe, though, has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid. The arrival of the 22-year-old would bolster Carlo Ancelotti's attack. But Los Blancos are unlikely to stop at the Frenchman.
Real Madrid also have their eyes on Antonio Rudiger. The German defender's future continues to hang in the balance, with his current deal set to run out next summer. Chelsea are keen to tie him down to a new contract, but Rudiger is yet to put pen to paper on a deal. Los Blancos are interested in a defender, and could add the German to their roster next year for free
Paul Pogba is another player Real Madrid are hoping to sign in a Bosman move next summer. The French midfielder is currently sidelined with an injury. His association with Manchester United is likely to end this summer, when his current contract expires.
