Simmer transfers

Madrid will have to accelerate after the Eurocup to prop up the squad, but everything indicates that it will not be ready until the last days of the market.


The summer, which started on June 21, will be very long for Real Madrid. The board of directors, with the general director José Ángel Sánchez at the head and the supervision of Florentino Pérez, is working on propping up the squad for next season. The problem is that there is a lot to do and some of the tasks are not easy. Everything points to the fact that, until the last days of the transfer market (ends on August 31), the squad will not be closed for the 2021/2022 season.

The first thing will be to address the exits, which are divided into sales and assignments. “Now we have 35 players and we can only sign up 25. We have a great job ahead of us. For example, giving in to some who are not of an age to perform at the highest level, "said Florentino in his interview with El Transistor. As for transfers, it is expected to find accommodation for some players whose stage in Madrid has come to an end. This is the case of Mariano or Isco, who will have a very difficult time following. The club wants to free up the salary mass and, if possible, get some revenue from its sales, although in some cases it will facilitate negotiations to find solutions. We will have to closely monitor the situations of footballers like Jovic or Ceballos, whose future will depend on what Ancelotti decides during the preseason. The last one will go to the Olympic Games, so his case could be decided as early as August.

Regarding those loaned out, Madrid has almost a dozen players in the squad with 21 years or less. With those who come up from Castilla, they will only be given an exit in case the interested team ensures minutes for the player and it is an attractive project, in addition to financial compensation for the loan. If these requirements are not met, they will stay and mix the subsidiary with the first team. This is the case of Miguel Gutiérrez, Arribas or Marvin. Regarding those who must return, Kubo and Brahim, both cases will be analyzed in a personalized way. The second may be the first to be resolved, while the first is in the same situation as Ceballos, with the Games as the main obstacle to resolving its future.Tickets and renewals

As the departures are specified, Madrid will free up space for possible incorporations. A summer with many signings is not expected, but those who come will be first class. Alaba has already arrived, although his situation (he was free) forced him to anticipate the incorporation. The main objective is Mbappé and steps are being taken to make it possible to bring him this summer. However, at the club they count on PSG to rush its options to renew it until the end and that it will not be until the end of August when an offensive can be carried out for its signing. The rest of purchases will always depend on the needs of the squad, but the club for the moment is reluctant to dive into the market for new players.

All this, with the renovations in the background. Madrid have seven players who end their contract in 2022, after this Thursday Nacho has extended one more season. There will be no problems with some of them like Carvajal or Benzema. Others, for their part, aim to leave once it is finished, such as Marcelo or Isco (if he does not leave before). However, there is one in particular, Varane, whose continuity is now more in doubt than ever. In the case of the French, the situation has not yet been clarified and some big players in Europe want to take advantage of this market to take it at a bargain price. The club would not frown on him leaving and being able to get a good amount for him.

There are many fronts open for two months of market. Taking into account that until before the end of the Eurocup (July 11) too many movements will not be able to be made, the white club is obliged to accelerate the efforts since then to, in a month and a half, make a balanced team that is capable to compete for all titles. It won't be easy ...
