Italian Carlo Ancelotti may not be the only big name to arrive in Madrid this summer, but the “Royal” club’s priority at the moment is to get rid of some of the squad’s players on loan.
Paco Gonzalez – one of the journalists close to the Meringue administration – explained that “Real Madrid has 33 players in the first team now. There are no offers for any of them, not even for Belgian Eden Hazard.”
The journalist continued – in a radio interview – that “signing a great player and not selling any player will leave a lot of debt on the club. The plan is to keep (Luka) Jovic on loan and not sell him. Players – like Ibrahim (Diaz) and Kubo – will have no problems finding Clubs. (Martin) Odegaard can be loaned again, and Roma want to sign Borja Mayoral, but he does not have 15 million euros worth of the deal.”
A big star
French star Kylian Mbappe, the top scorer of Paris Saint-Germain, is one of the names that has been linked to a move to Real in the summer transfer market, but it will not be easy for the club to make a big deal.
“Real cannot sign Mbappe before August, because he has to sell a large number of players, and this contract will be the only one, and Real will not sign any player in the center of the defense to compensate for the departure of Sergio Ramos, and no other player will reach the midfield,” Gonzalez said. .
He pointed out that “Mbappe and (Erling) Haaland cannot join at the same time. Real Madrid did not contact Paris Saint-Germain to find out the value of dispensing with Mbappe or making an exchange with any other player, which is unlikely. Real Madrid will pay 200 million euros if he wants Paris Saint-Germain.
Captain Ramos is not expected to be the big name to leave the squad this summer, as his partner in defence is expected to join; Frenchman Raphael Varane, and another player to him.
“Real Madrid expects to leave 3 out of 33 soon,” Gonzalez said.
He concluded, “The renewal of Ramos will not take place, and (Raphael) Varane can leave if an offer reaches him with a value of between 35 and 40 million euros.”
