The summer transfer window has now closed, with Real Madrid having failed to sign a single player in one of the quietest windows in their history.
The financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic prevented the Spanish champions from doing their usual business, but a busy summer of 2021 is already being predicted with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Eduardo Camavinga thought to be on their shortlist.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news of possible comings and goings at the Bernabeu.
Friday morning's Real Madrid transfer talk news roundup:
Manchester United will reportedly have to pay out £91m in order to sign Erling Braut Haaland from Borussia Dortmund during the summer of 2022.
The Norway international was strongly linked with a move to United before leaving Red Bull Salzburg to join Dortmund in January, and the 20-year-old has been a revelation at Signal Iduna Park.
Haaland has struck 33 times in 32 appearances for BVB in all competitions, including 17 goals in 14 outings during the 2020-21 campaign.
United will allegedly return for the attacker in 2022, when a £64m release clause in his contract is believed to come into effect.
However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the Red Devils would also have to pay out £18m in various agency and commission fees, including to super-agent Mino Raiola.
The report claims that the 20-time English champions would also need to pay £9m to Haaland's family, including his father Alf-Inge Haaland, in order to complete a deal.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City are also believed to be admirers of the centre-forward.
Real Madrid are reportedly ready to cut their losses with Eden Hazard and use the Belgian forward as a makeweight to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.
Hazard has been a major flop since arriving in the Spanish capital from Chelsea last year for a fee that could exceed £150m.
The 29-year-old has been hampered by injury and fitness issues, restricting him to 25 starts in all competitions since the beginning of 2019-20.
According to Spanish TV programme El Chiringuito, Madrid want to get Hazard off their books next year and have devised a plan to help them achieve that.
Los Blancos are strongly rumoured to have made PSG forward Mbappe their top target for 2021 and hope that Hazard, plus a sizeable transfer fee, can persuade the Parisians to cash in.
Hazard is not expected to feature again for Madrid before the New Year after injuring his hamstring in last weekend's La Liga defeat to Alaves.
