Real Madrid are back to where they left last season. 2nd in La Liga and Round of 16 in UCL, it is not bad for a team that was deemed finished after Ronaldo left. The team is looking stronger than ever with Benzema also returning from injury. It is fair to say that they had an easy UCL group as compared to other teams. But apart from that, they are firing in La Liga with Vinicius, Rodrygo, and Valverde leading from the front. Barcelona are currently the only team that are ahead of them in the league. The Catalans sit at the top with a 2-point lead.
Apart from all this action on the pitch, Real Madrid had a successful transfer window in all aspects. Casemiro left for Manchester United but Ancelotti has a new signing Tchaoumeni for the CDM position. Antonio Rudiger has settled in really well. Apart from that, Los Blancos have managed to keep their squad’s core intact. The likes of Modric, Kroos, and Benzema are at their best supported by the young guns who will be the future of this club. It must be said that this was a particularly less active window for them because not many departures took place.
Leroy Sane is the one player that Los Blancos are targeting. The German international is one of the top transfer targets for the upcoming transfer window. The Spanish champions are trying to get him next season but the price would certainly be hefty. The rumored price is said to be around €70 million. Real Madrid are closely monitoring his performances as well as his situation. Carlo Ancelotti is clear that top signings have to be made if the club is to be at the top of the world. Certainly, Sane is one of the key players at Bayern Munich. The German Champions will do anything to keep hold of him. It will be an interesting transfer rumor to follow.
Is it the end for Eden Hazard at Real Madrid?
As per multiple reports, Eden Hazard has already made up his mind of retiring internationally. The Belgian has been off form for now so long and there does not look to be a way back for him. Belgium were knocked out disappointingly in the group stages only. This comes after their opening day win against Canada but draw against Croatia and defeat against Morocco. Eden Hazard was pretty underwhelming which is a big concern.
Real Madrid will look to get rid of him next summer after his contract expires. His time at Real Madrid is one of the worst situations someone can face. He has found himself on the bench almost every other game. Ancelotti also seems to have given up on the once-magical wizard.
