Real Madrid have reportedly drawn up a hit list of Real Madrid targets in retaliation against the Spanish club’s obsession with Kylian Mbappe. 

Los Blancos’ ongoing courtship of the French star has brought about lots of turbulence for the Ligue 1 champions, who he looks intent on leaving for the Bernabeu next summer. 

Now, PSG are eyeing up a raid of Madrid’s ‘jewels’ as a counter-strike, with president Nasser Al-Khelaifi apparently keen on ‘stealing’ some of five individuals.

Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo are the two top targets, according to OkDiario via Sport. 

Meanwhile, they are also looking at Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde.

The greatest barrier to this is obviously the gargantuan release clauses that Spanish clubs have been placing on their talent. 

Vinicius Jr reportedly signed a new contract over the summer with a release clause to the tune of £860million and Madrid rarely lose rising talent to other clubs.

Moreover, the issue will be compounded by the fact that Kylian Mbappe could leave PSG for free next summer, in which case they won’t have any income from his departure to fund any market moves. 

With Marco Verratti looking as if he will leave Paris for Qatari side Al-Arabi in a £39m move, midfield reinforcements in the form of Camavinga, Tchouameni, or Valverde would be welcome. 

Rodrygo is seen as a more realistic attacking signing than Vinicius Jr.
