For first since Florentino Pérez is Real Madrid’s president, Los Blancos have closed the summer transfer market with more income than expenses. Real Madrid have decided to sign young players with a good future instead of multimillionaire players as Mbappé, Aubameyang and De Gea.
After the galactic era, in which Florentino Pérez broke all the records in the signings with Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale or James, Los Blancos have decided to earn money and wait to a better opportunity to sign. In this transfer market the prices have risen a lot with the signings of Neymar to PSG for an amount of €222M and Mbappé €180M.
Los Blancos closed the summer transfer market with five new players in the squad. Florentino Pérez decided to sign Theo Hernández to Atlético Madrid after his great season playing on loan at Alavés. The French left back has arrived to Madrid for an amount of €40M, with the goal of giving rest to Marcelo, who didn’t have a natural replacement. Real Madrid have also sign Dani Ceballos. The Betis former player, was chosen the MVP of the U21 Eurocup and Florentino didn’t doubt in paying his release clause that was quite low if we compare it with the amount of money that the teams are paying for these type of players, €16M. Mayoral, Vallejo and Marcos Llorente have also return to Real Madrid after their experience on loan and it looks like they will have several minutes this season.
There are also important players who have decided to leave Real Madrid after the great last season; Danilo, James, Morata, Mariano, Pepe and Coentrao. Six departures that have left a lot of money in the club where we can highlight the signing of Morata to Chelsea for an amount of €80M. Danilo, who has been one of the worst signing in the last years, signed with Manchester City (€35M) while Mariano signed with Olympique Lyon (€8M) with the aim of having more minutes and grow as a player. James moved on loan to Bayern Munich (€10M), who in June of 2019 he can sign with the German side for an mount of €35.2M. Finally, Pepe and Coentrao have left the team free to Besiktas and Sporting Portugal because they finished their contract. This means that Los Blancos have collected M133€ only in sales.
We can say that Los Blancos have one of the most complete squad of the world despite there have been very important departures as James and Morata. Now Zinendine Zidane has a squad full of young players that have already experience and that can grow even more in the next seasons.
