Real Madrid is not just a football club. The Whites are much more than a team and their offices not only value sporting merits and technique to attract players to the squad. There are more important things. Finances, corporate image, the vision of the club … are objectives as important as the titles in the offices of the Santiago Bernabéu… And they have prevailed this summer over reinforcements. Real Madrid has focused on the image of a powerful and giant European team and has left homework to do. Ancelotti will need reinforcements and the Whites will have to act in the January recoveries.
Kylian Mbappé has been Real Madrid’s only target this summer. And the whites haven’t even played all to one card, because they knew perfectly well that it was an impossible move, PSG would not accept any offer. However, Florentino Pérez had the need to demonstrate the economic muscle of Real Madrid, the best club of the 20th century and in the history of Europe, as confirmed by his record. He decided to bid higher than the white coffers could bear, knowing full well that they would not be able to pay such a high sum. Yesterday he offered 200 million euros for a player that in six months will be free. The campaign was complete. Mbappé knows that they could not do more and is happy with the Whites’ attempts, the fans too. Real Madrid have regained their status after the failed Super League.
All this was not enough and Florentino wanted to go one step further. He could not be the loser in the battle against Paris Saint-Germain and Qatari money. He needed to make one more hit. Thus he redirected his market and approached Stade Rennais to sign Camavinga, player wanted by Paris Saint-Germain. Thus he witnessed a blow to PSG, enough to win the round on points and wait for the second, which will be played in January, with Mbappé free to sign for whatever club he wants. The coup cost 45 million euros.
Thus, Real Madrid ends up in the market with the departure of its two starting centrals (Varane and Sergio Ramos) and the arrival of just a replacement (praise). Camavinga, the other incorporation, will arrive to replace Luca Modric. The Frenchman is only 18 years old. He will grow up alongside the Croatian and prepare for the alternative. The problems in the goal are entrusted to the progression of Vinícius and the attempt to recover Bale, Hazard and Jovic. A nine will wait in January.
