Champions League – Real Madrid
After just one trophy this season, the Champions League, Real Madrid is ready to revolutionize the batch so that it will not repeat the “failure” in the coming season. According to the Spanish magazine As, there is a left-wing defender, a midfielder and two attackers, but Florentino Perez is preparing to split two or three players.
All this period of summer mercato is seen as a “luxury” both in terms of arrivals and departures. The youngsters promoted to the first team last summer did not give the expected satisfaction, so the club is now looking for teams to accumulate minutes and experience.
Names such as Achraf, Vallejo, Marcos Llorente, Mayoral and Ceballos will sit at the table with the Bernabeu bosses and discuss their future. Besides these, they could leave Zidane’s band and big names in exchange for substantial amounts of money.
This is the case of Gareth Bale, which has been discussed and is going through his most complicated moment since he arrived in Real in 2013. Welsh has a contract until 2022, but at the age of 28, no longer is a promise. Perez’s dream, when he paid him 101 million euros, was to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, but it quickly evaporated.
Despite the lack of continuity, caused by frequent injuries and lack of fit and perfect team integration, his image in England remains intact. Thus, Mourinho wanted Manchester United last summer, but the offensive midfielder insisted on staying in Real.
However, this season he ceased to be an essential man for Zidane, playing only 1,727 minutes out of 4,320 possible (39.9 percent), and this time even he will consider leaving the team. In the summer, United will try again to bring him, but Real will not give up easily without a sum close to 100 million euros.
Isco – Another departure, this time, quite surprising. The midfielder renewed his contract by 2022 and has a termination clause of 700 million euros, but he does not go through the best form to Real. After being one of the team’s basemen in the first part of the season, he fell back.
In the tour he played 56 percent of the minutes, in return he evolved to just 38 percent. In addition, he has started in only 3 of the last 10 matches. Totally this season, he was replaced in 23 of the 29 matches he played.
According to the British press, Guardiola is lying in wait and is ready to put 86 million euros on the table to bring it to Manchester City. And Juventus follows the player born in Malaga, just like Chelsea, where his friend Morata plays. Real still did not think seriously about selling it, but the player could do it.
Mateo Kovacic – One of the players that attracts the attention of many important clubs in Europe. Most of the teams in the championships of England and Italy, where he played at Inter between 2013 and 2015, were the most. Inter, Milan, Rome or Tottenham are the most likely destinations for the Croatian midfielder.
