Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui is reportedly keen on signing a centre-back and a forward before the end of the summer transfer window.
Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui has reportedly indicated that he wants to add a centre-back and forward to his first-team squad.
The European champions are currently going through a summer of change, with Cristiano Ronaldo having left for Juventus and Lopetegui replacing Zinedine Zidane in the dugout.
Thibaut Courtois and Alvaro Odriozola are also both expected to feature heavily in the starting lineup next season, and according to AS, Real remain active in the market.
The report claims that Lopetegui wants to add a centre-back and a forward to his squad in order to allow fringe members of the club to gain experience elsewhere.
Lopetegui would allegedly like to replace Raul de Tomas, while the new coach feels that Jesus Vallejo should find regular first-team action out on loan.
Real begin the new La Liga campaign with a home fixture against Getafe on Sunday, August 19.
