Real Madrid has been quite active in the weeks since winning the Champions League for the 14th time!
After his contract with Chelsea ended, the club signed free agency center-back Antonio Rudiger, while midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni is poised to finalize his move to Spain in the coming days.
However, the team still needs a few modifications.
Cleaning out some of the depth players who have lost their place in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans and bringing in some new blood would only help the squad defend their league and UCL championships next season.
3. Make a Gabriel Jesus sign
Gabriel Jesus will depart Manchester City at the end of the season. That much is certain.
It’s unclear where he’ll end up next. The Brazilian attacker has been an important part of Pep Guardiola’s Premier League dominance, but he hasn’t always started. He is a true super sub’ who has shown himself as a playmaker in one of the hardest leagues in the world.
Jesus, 25, is seeking a fresh challenge with a new club after completing his sixth season at Manchester.
Real Madrid made touch with Jesus’ agents a few weeks ago, according to Fabrizio Romano, but talks have stalled since then. Real Madrid would be prudent to launch an offer for the prolific Brazilian international, even if he is likely to stay in the Premier League.
Gabriel Jesus could easily slide in behind Karim Benzema or battle for a position on the right-wing alongside Federico Valverde and Rodrygo Goes.
I am certain that signing Gabriel Jesus and moving away from Marco Asensio would be a major improvement.
2. Get rid of the guys who don’t have any futures (Asensio, Jovic, Mariano)
Real Madrid’s financial situation is significantly more stable than FC Barcelona’s.
However, there are a few players who Los Blancos should aim to get go of in order to free up some cash.
The contracts of Isco, Gareth Bale, and Marcelo all expired at the end of the season. That’s a terrific place to start. Real Madrid must now find a loan, loan-to-buy, or sale arrangements for players such as Asensio, Luka Jovic, Mariano Diaz, and Jesus Vallejo.
In 2021/2022, Jovic, Mariano, and Jesus Vallejo combined to play 1,041 minutes in the league. Only eight games were started by the three of them together. They made a total of 29 league appearances.
Why spend so much money to keep them on the bench when they aren’t regarded as good enough choices to put in to change a game?
Despite the fact that Marco Asensio was on the pitch more frequently, he plainly lacks the creative spark and drive that made him such an appealing kid when he signed. On his favored right-wing, he was obviously outplayed by Rodrygo and Valverde, and there are clubs interested in acquiring Asensio who will pay a high price for him.
Since Real Madrid is expected to lose money on the Jovic and Mariano trades, why not benefit from Asensio while you still can?
1. Make an attempt to sign Reece James.
The Chelsea fullback has deservedly attracted Real Madrid’s interest in recent years thanks to his outstanding performances for both club and country.
Real’s excitement has only risen since the quarterfinal match against The Blues. Reece James’ desire to leave Chelsea and embark on a new adventure is also building.
Dani Carvajal is no longer the player he used to be. Concerns about his long-term health are widespread. Lucas Vazquez was used at right-back considerably more than he should have been when Alvaro Odriozola was loaned to Fiorentina last summer.
Carvajal redeemed himself in the last months of the season, turning in outstanding performances in both the league and the Champions League knockout stages, but his injury history and ability to stay on the field are also concerns.
It’s reasonable to conclude that Odriozola isn’t the team’s future fullback, Vazquez isn’t a natural defender, even if he can cover, and Carvajal is past his prime. Reece James, who is only 22, is a wonderful match for Real Madrid’s methods.
