Nobody wants to leave Madrid

The return of those loaned and the return of Odegaard to stay generates a problem due to the excess of players in the team: 31 players.


If nothing changes, Zidane is going to find an overcrowded dressing room in the Real Madrid preseason. While waiting for departures for both the members who have finished the season and those on loan who, for now, must rejoin, the French coach will have 31 players at his command. Almost to make three complete teams for the games ...

This season already concluded for the whites, the French coach had a squad at the limit of troops. At the beginning, with Odriozola, there were 26. Without free numbers, Vinicius had to wear the 25 reserved for a possible third goalkeeper and Rodrygo acted with the 27 and a record for Castilla. When they return they will all be except one, Areola, whose position will be filled by Lunin. There will also be (perhaps not the first day due to Bayern's participation in the Champions League, but later), Odriozola, who started this campaign, but left on loan to the white team in January. Odegaard joins the goalkeeper and the winger, who returns to stay. With the Norwegian, there are 27 players. For now, they must also appear in Valdebebas Reguilón, Ceballos, Óscar Rodríguez and Mayoral, although most likely as a stopover for another final destination.

The challenge again for Madrid is to release troops. The task was already empty for the club last summer, when they found no solution for James and Bale and they ran into Brahim and Mariano's refusal to look for their opportunity in another team when the configuration of the squad led them to have a few minutes . In fact, the man from Malaga (207 ') and Brahim (86') have been the madridistas who have played the fewest minutes this season.

James had a strong marking last summer by Napoli and Atlético. The Italians withdrew due to discrepancies with Madrid in the payment conditions for the transfer. De Laurentiis wanted a formula to pay the operation in installments and from Concha Espina they demanded the money ahead. Meanwhile, the path that could lead to Wanda was blocked after the 3-7 in the New Jersey derby. The rojiblancos had already 'caught' Marcos Llorente and the Spanish player Mario Hermoso, of whom Madrid still held 50% of the rights. He stayed and, despite the initial redemption of Zidane, his prominence faded until he asked Zidane not to be summoned in the absence of five days to finish the League. Lazio wants him, they say in Italy.

Bale also had one foot out, specifically in China. The negotiation was so advanced that Zidane came to express without hot cloths his desire for the Welshman to leave "if it's tomorrow, better." It did not happen and the Briton started as a starter in four of the first five league games (the foul was due to suspension). And it began to fade. Unlike James, Bale has maintained Zidane's confidence until his star also melted and ended, like the Colombian, asking to go uncalled to Manchester.

Brahim is locked in the most competitive position on the team. Asensio, Rodrygo, Lucas Vázquez, Bale himself ... There is only one room in the eleven and the man from Malaga was at the tail. After the attempts of the two previous markets, it seems that this time the player will end up convinced to go out and look for the minutes he needs at his 21st birthday. Brides are not lacking, with Getafe and Betis as the best nominated teams.

Mariano suffers from a similar situation to that of Brahim. Zidane does not trust him and is the third striker behind Benzema and Jovic in a drawing, that of the French coach, in which two points rarely have room. The Serbian's bad first year has given the squad a chance, a goal in the Classical included, but the general balance of his participation is almost irrelevant. His high salary is one of the obstacles to his exit.
