Madrid manages options for a devalued market

first_imgWhile the coronavirus pandemic has stopped any social and economic activity, In the T4 of the Santiago Bernabéu stadium, work is done with a view to when everything is returning to normal. The Madridista directive, commanded by Florentino Pérez, will be doomed to a new situation more of saving than of spending. Lack of worldwide earnings will make teams want to trade higher for their most desirable players, but there is one factor that cannot be controlled: the players’ desire to go to stronger projects. However, in the white set they are calm. They know perfectly the key positions to reinforce in this next summer market. They also play with the trick that FIFA wants to propose: This year, the transfer windows, which usually open on July 1 and usually close on August 31 at 12:00 midnight, will open when tournaments that are still in competition have ended. FIFA wants the two summer months to be as it has always been, extending it until the celebration of the first three days of the League of each championship. However, the clubs want another calendar: if it opens in August / September, it should end in December. It is in this wide period of time that Madrid is able to focus its objectives. Gaining time at a time. FIFA intends to shorten that long period of time because it fears that the big teams will sign the best players from the weakest in the middle of tournaments, distorting the competitions.. Still, the white goals are as follows: MbappéHe is the player whose name is marked in red within the white board with a view to incorporating him into the Madrid discipline.. The new scenario indicates that the disbursement to be made would not be so important to balance the economic balances. The French striker ends his contract in 2022, and the Madrid club expected events to act accordingly: possible exit of Neymar, the economic future of the Parisian team (the club manages a reduction in salaries due to the lack of income that will affect the entire staff) and the world of football, their contractual situation (Mbappé has twice refused to extend his relationship with the Parisian team)… Everything indicated a movement of the whites. But now the picture has changed. Madrid will not mind waiting until next summer when the situation can be more favorable: Kylian would have one year left on the contract, with the condition that from January 1, 2022 he can sign free for any other team. Whites do not want to go to war with Parisians: they want to negotiate and go head to head. PogbaZidane’s great desire to strengthen Madrid’s midfield. With this new panorama, the situation of the French midfielder has turned 180 degrees. The arrival of Bruno Fernandes has given the red devils another player to bear the weight of the team. His continuous injuries have slowed his progress (he had surgery last January and has not returned: this season he has played eight games), but not the interests of Manchester, which wants to get a good pinch for its transfer. There enters the negotiation of his agent Mino Raiola. The other factor is Juventus, which aspires for the Frenchman to return to what was his home between 2012 and 2016. Pogba has a contract until 2021, but the club mancuniano An option was reserved to renew his contract for a season unilaterally, until 2022. Pogba has been devalued by about 70 million: If it was estimated last summer that it could leave the whole of northern England for about 180 million, it could now go out for about 110. It would be missing to know if Madrid would bet on his arrival … HaalandThe great scoring sensation of the moment. The Norwegian, signed in the past winter market by Borussia Dortmund, has stood out as a prolific scorer since his origins in the modest Molde, and above all, after the nine goals he scored for Honduras in the last U-20 World Cup . Madrid follows him because Benzema is now 32 years old and Luka Jovic, signed last summer for 60 million euros to Eintracht, he has not finished breaking with the white shirt. In addition, his march to Belgrade days before the State of Alarm was declared, has not done well, despite having the OK of the president, coach and medical staff. In Haaland you see a good relay, young man (one of the conditions that the white team handles in these times), with quality. Another contribution is his good relationship with Odegaard, called to be one of the next Madrid sensations. All this makes it subject to monitoring and possible immediate incorporation. The problem: that Madrid is not only interested. Other teams like Manchester United have also set their sights on the young Norwegian …last_img read more
