Real Madrid have reportedly placed Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger near the top of their transfer wishlist for 2022.
Los Blancos are known to be keen to sign Kylian Mbappe and Erling Braut Haaland during the next summer window, acquisitions which would take up considerable space on their wage bill.
However, the Spanish giants will also be in the market for a new centre-back with their focus firmly on securing the signature of potential free agent Rudiger.
According to Marca, Real are attracted by the economic aspect of the deal with the Germany international still to extend his contract at Stamford Bridge past the end of the season.
Real also want to bring in another experienced defender, the 28-year-old regarded as a long-term replacement for Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
Chelsea want to agree a new deal with Rudiger before he is able to formally hold discussions with foreign clubs in January.
