Despite of Sergio Ramos and Pepe have been decisive in these years and specially in this Champions League final, Real Madrid don’t stop searching defenders in the market new players who can improve Real security. Because we don’t must forget they have already past thirty years old.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Real is interested in Atlético de Madrid defender José María Giménez, who has converted in one of the best young defenders of the world. 21 years old boy has managed to forget the fans Miranda, a key player few years ago for Atlético coach Simeone.
He’s always one of the starting member with Godín, avoiding a lot of rival chances. Oblak is a super goalkeeper, but they are one of the reasons why Slovenian goalkeeper has been the man who has received less goals in Liga.
The problem is that Atlético won’t sell him unless Real pay the release fee of €65 million. Furthermore, it has never been easy for Real deal with Atlético (logical considering that they don’t want to strengthen a historical rival), as when Manchester City forward Kun Agüero was about to sign for Real.
In addition, Zidane has other good substitutes of Ramos and Pepe like Varane and Nacho, but the problem is that both could leave Real in search of more minutes. The Spanish defender has played only 22 matches. The Frenchman has played more than his teammate, exactly 33 matches, but he could have played more if it had not been for Pepe, who initially started the season as the third centerback.
