Real Madrid are looking unstoppable this season. Los Blancos are at joint top of La Liga and also have made it to the round of 16 yet again with 2 games to spare. 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 the only team who have scored more than Los Blancos. The Blaugranas are one of the best teams in La Liga currently sitting at the top.
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 new signing Tchaoumeni to praise. Antonio Rudiger arrived from Chelsea as a free agent and 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.
Reports say that Real Madrid have their eyes set on the January transfer window. There are a few positions that Ancelotti is looking to improve upon. Bruno Guimaraes is one of the names that has popped up for the midfield position. The Brazilian is on the list for a lot of top clubs, having joined Newcastle since their takeover. In his debut season, he managed 6 goal contributions in 17 appearances for Newcastle. Guimaraes had offers from other clubs also but felt Newcastle was the most productive on an individual level. It will be difficult for Real Madrid to plot a move for him as Newcastle rates him very highly.
Real Madrid eye Moussa Diaby for 2023
As per multiple reports, Moussa Diaby is the one player that Los Blancos are targeting. The French 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.
Marco Asensio has a doubtful future at the club and Eden Hazard just simply has not got it anymore. Carlo Ancelotti is clear that top signings have to be made if the club is to be at the top of the world. Certainly, Diaby at just 23 years of age, has really stepped up under new manager Xabi Alonso. It will be an interesting transfer rumor to follow.
