Real Madrid: Rüdiger, Tchouameni – y nada more?
MADRID. Antonio Rüdiger, Aurélien Tchouaméni – y nada más? It doesn’t just seem that Real Madrid is no longer active on the transfer market itself. Florentino Pérez has now said it himself. “We’re pausing for the moment because that’s all we can do at the moment”said the President of the Champions League winner on Thursday night on the football talk show “El Chiringuito” with.
In Spain, a squad can have a maximum of 25 professionals. After the departures of Marcelo, Isco and Gareth Bale as well as the newcomers Rüdiger and Tchouaméni, there is still a vacancy to be filled – for example left-back Fran García from Rayo Vallecano or an attacker that Real really wanted to sign with Kylian Mbappé. To all appearances, the royals have no serious alternative in their sights after the Paris Saint-Germain superstar surprisingly canceled them in the end. They obviously only want to invest their money wisely and not just to get a striker to get a striker.
The decision-makers around Pérez are relatively carefree and are not even afraid that Karim Benzema could be out longer during the season. “We will have a replacement”, said the 75-year-old Spaniard on this possible scenario. The representative is only then needed. “Not for Karim to go to the bench”Pérez clarified.
“Obligations will be few”
Luka Jović, at Real only in theory the primary Benzema backup, is meanwhile about to say goodbye again. “We do not know that”Pérez leaves the personal details open. “We’ll see what becomes of one or the other player. Three went and two came. For those who have already left, the contract expires. And the others think. You also have to see who gets an offer. Jović or I don’t know who. The work of the summer is yet to come. There will be few commitments because there is no space. The summer is very long and you don’t know what can happen”said the chief, who referred to General Manager José Ángel Sánchez regarding the open situations of Marco Asensio and Daniel Ceballos, whose contracts expire in mid-2023 and who could therefore be sold: “You have to ask him that.”
In addition to Ceballos and Asensio, Jesús Vallejo or Mariano Díaz could theoretically do something, especially since Álvaro Odriozola will probably also have a loan return.
Hazard at Real Madrid: “We have to believe in him”
In view of the price-performance ratio, which has been completely out of balance for a long time, Eden Hazard would now also be a candidate for sale. A departure of the 31-year-old Belgian is not an issue, he would rather like to start the new season at the fourth attempt. “He was very unlucky. Now it seems he’s feeling better after having the plate removed. He’s very keen, we’ll see. He has this desire and we have to believe in him”, said Perez. Hazard has only 66 appearances, six goals and ten assists, his contract is dated until mid-2024.
