Real Madrid, in the Pole Position to Sign Moussa Sissoko


Los Blancos are very quite in this summer transfer windows. The only big signing so far was Álvaro Morata’s returning home from Juventus after a €30M transfer fee. Marco Asensio also came back after a season on loan. Both were unveiled at Santiago Bernabéu stadium this week despite the fact that the Spaniards had already played for Real Madrid.

The club is still looking for interesting players in the market despite Zinedine Zidane said early this week that the squad is closed. If Real Madrid are looking to find a new player, the midfield is the position in the field where they might face more problems. Especially, in the stopper position, with Casemiro as the only player to cover a critical position.

One of the players who might end up at Bernabéu is Moussa Sissoko. The French player is currently playing for Newcastle United in the Championship and he wants to leave the English second division and play for a top flight club.

According to the bookmakers, Real Madrid are the team with more odds to get Sissoko. In Betfair you can back Real Madrid to sign Sissoko with 8/11 odds. It’s surprising the low odds for Los Blancos signing this good player.


In the race to get Sissoko, Real Madrid would have to beat Juventus (2/1) or the Premier League teams Arsenal and Everton (4/1). With less probabilities to sign the French player -always according to Betfair- are Liverpool (6/1), PSG (10/1), West Ham (12/1) or Tottenham (14/1).

The season has already started in the Championship but Sissoko hasn’t played any minute yet. Last season, Sissoko appeared in 37 games for the Magpies scoring only 1 goal. Despite his good performance, Newcastle couldn’t avoid relegation.


  1. “Despite his good performance, Newcastle couldn’t avoid relegation.” I hope to god you are joking with this comment, Newcastle were relegated because of performances like Sissoko’s all season! He played 37 games and I can remember 2 maybe 3 games he actually had a influence.

    Incredibly over-rated player who can’t pass, shoot or cross the ball, unless he runs aimlessly through the centre of the pitch with no end product he does not offer anything to a team. As a NUFC fan I can not wait for him to leave. If we get £35million for him to leave I would be gobsmacked and LOL!

  2. Which sissy sorry sissoko were you watching last season at Newcastle “despite his good performance” i had to sit and watch his performance last season and the were far from good. Real Madrid wont sign this player not if they watched what I watched last season.
