Florentino Perez recently had an interview on the famous Spanish football show, El Chirinhuito de Jugones. He commented on the Super League, the Mbappe saga, his team’s success and transfers.
With respect to transfers, he said, “”At the moment we don’t have room for other transfers. Now all the work remains in July and August to see what happens with the players who leave. There will be no more transfers for now. Then we’ll see. Summer is very long.”
Does this mean Real’s transfer business this summer is finished?
Real Madrid have already signed Antonio Rüdiger and Aurelien Tchouaméni and renewed the contracts of Vinicius Jr and Luka Modric. Perez simply means, there must be some outgoings at the club before more transfers come in.
Who will leave the club?
Deciding to leave after winning the Champions League, La Liga and the Spanish SuperCup must be hard for any player, but ambition and self-pride must always be first priority. There’s many players in the squad who rarely played last season. The likes of Mariano, Jovic, Ceballos, Vallejo and Asensio will be in search of first team football. They are all expected to leave but it’ll be a difficult task to get all of them out in this transfer window.
Who else do Los Blancos need?
Carlo Ancelitti reportedly requested another centre back and defensive midfielder. As we know, his wishes were granted and he’s now satisfied with his squad. But is that all the team needs? With Mariano and Jovic leaving the club, a backup striker is needed for when Benzema is unavailable. Although Fede Valverde and Rodrygo can play on the right, the fanbase still thinks that a natural right-winger is required.
Once there’s 3 or 4 outgoings, a backup striker and a right winger isn’t impossible.
I will soon write an article that’ll assess strikers and right wingers that the club can possibly bring in.
