Why hasn’t Real Madrid signed a ‘nine’? – Brand

Real Madrid has become a mere spectator of the last market days. It is true that there has been uncertainty regarding several players, but that has not happened. Hazard, Odriozola, Mariano and Asensio have been on the starting ramp, but none of them have shown any willingness to leave. As for transfers, for Valdebebas they closed the market many weeks ago, specifically eight. As soon as Tchouameni’s arrival was announced, the folder was put away in a drawer. The multitude of rumors that have appeared have never started from movements made by the leaders of Real Madrid. Everything has obeyed the wishes of fans, journalists and something very fashionable, hoaxes on social networks. The balance they make of the summer is more than satisfactory. Real Madrid, leaving Mbappé aside, achieved the two contracts they were pursuing, such as Rudiger and Tchouameni. No further negotiations were opened. As for the departures, not all expectations have been met, but they know that they are slaves to the contracts and that as such the panorama was not easy. than real within the debates established in Valdebebas. It is true that there was talk of Gabriel Jesús at the beginning of the market, but from that moment on and given the impossibility of signing him, the idea was clear: “there will be no more signings”. Past experiences advised the directors of Real Madrid not to search the market without the conviction of having the ideal player in front of them. The examples of Mariano and Jovic, both arrived without the consensus of all the parties that shape the signings in the Madrid entity, have been fundamental for that absence of the much-claimed substitute center forward and even that of the midfielder after the departure of Casemiro. Ancelotti would have welcomed him, in the same way that he has recognized that the current squad has the capacity to adapt to his absence. Nobody knows what could happen in the form of injuries, penalties or poor form, but the feeling that the group gives is that it is capable of enduring those 17 official matches that remain until the World Cup break and, therefore, the arrival of another market. Studying a possible objectiveIn these two months, all kinds of footballers have been associated with Real Madrid. It all started with Lewandowski, to continue with Cavani, Dzeko, Nkunku, Sesko, Cristiano Ronaldo, Raúl de Tomás, Ekitike, Havertz, Werner… and the truth is that none of them opened the chapter of the pertinent call to start a touchdown. Now a study period is opening, to see the evolution of some players and to decide on an objective, if necessary, for the winter market. That nine has to convince everyone and he accepts that Benzema still hasn’t seen the time to take a step back. In January, you can already go to the non-EU market, which would help find a possible footballer who fits, but it is clear that the operation will not be unless the performance of the squad shows the need for it. Madrid did not fight for Haaland? The leaders of the white club demonstrated for months that the priority objective was the hiring of Mbappé. In parallel, the Norwegian’s entourage was heard, who also never showed a clear decision to sign for Real Madrid, which curiously the Frenchman did have despite his fright or last-minute betrayal. Did he have options to sign Haaland? The Norwegian was on the market, but from Real Madrid they maintained in the last months of last season that the Norwegian’s wish was to follow in his father’s footsteps, that is, to play for City but without a long commitment. The late Mino Raiola outlined the strategy finished off by Rafaela Pimienta and everything indicates that this exit is marked on the horizon, as reported by MARCA. With Haaland they kept the flame alive to the limit, but without going crazy. Mbappé could act as a nine, as Rodrygo can now, but in a different way. Neither one nor the other have appeared for the Bernabéu and the team continues to win. Haaland’s performance is not surprising for Valdebebas. They don’t regret what they did because they still consider that they have the best nine in the squad, which is none other than Karim Benzema. For this reason, the search ceased when the possible ones were not even close to the French in the possible performance of him. The Norwegian is still there, on the horizon, but now they know that he is in a state club, a team that can fulfill their economic aspirations and we will see if they are sporting. It cannot be said that Real Madrid mortgages the position of ‘nine’ to what Haaland does in two years. They will be attentive, but the search for the nine of the future is already underway. And that is why they are very aware of Endrick and other young talents. Jovic, Borja Mayoral and Latasa have left that position. The former barely contributed last season, while Mayoral was in Rome and Getafe and Latasa was only seen in one game with the first team. They continue to trust him, but he needs minutes in First Division before making the leap. In terms of exit operations, Casimiro’s is considered ideal and it is the one that has made possible a positive closing of the market. Kubo, Borja Mayoral, Gila, Chust, Latasa, Miguel Gutierrez, Santos, Blanco, Reinier, Altube… are operations that have left money and some of them have served to justify the quarry. Mariano, Asensio, Odriozola, Hazard and Vallejo have fallen by the wayside. And it is that once again it has been shown that the footballer does not accept that of leaving Real Madrid just like that, even knowing that it is very difficult for him to play. Some for the conviction of being able to turn the situation around (Asensio and Odriozola) and others for the lack of motivation to leave. And now what? Well, all the players will be under Carlo Ancelotti and the Italian will use them if necessary. Neither Real Madrid nor the coach intend to separate or marginalize anyone. Everyone knew the role they were going to play and they will be the ones in charge of turning the situation around. It wouldn’t be the first time, nor the last.
