Real Madrid’s directors consider the door to be open for almost all players at the club, in the case of an acceptable offer being presented. David Alaba won’t be sold as he only just arrived, but then only Thibaut Courtois, Karim Benzema, Fede Valverde and Vinicius are off limits, with Carlo Ancelotti having asked for the latter to be part of his squad.
Not even Ferland Mendy is untouchable. Then there’s the case of Martin Odegaard, who was allowed to go out on loan to Arsenal in January and who could be sold this summer if an offer comes in that convinces the Spanish club’s directors. The Norwegian’s Real Madrid future remains uncertain.
Those in charge at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu know that rebuilding the squad won’t be simple and that it’ll require the exits of some very good players, as has happened with Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
From now to August 31, offers could be made to Real Madrid for various members of the squad. Until this point, the offers for Odegaard have only been loan pitches. There is a month to go, though, until the end of the transfer market.
If there are more exits then Real Madrid believe they have talent in the academy that can step up. Miguel Gutierrez, Antonio Blanco and Mario Gila have stood out and could have a big say in the near future.
Real Madrid’s plan is clear
In terms of arrivals, Real Madrid‘s plan is clear. Their sole objective is to sign Kylian Mbappe and nobody else.
There are no plans to sign another centre-back, as the central defensive options for next season will be Nacho, Eder Militao and David Alaba, plus the youngsters Gila and Victor Chust. Jesus Vallejo, meanwhile, could leave in the coming weeks.
Ancelotti knows that Florentino Perez‘s plan is for this to be a prudent transfer window, except in the case of being able to sign Mbappe. This is the clear and firm plan.
