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.
