Throughout history, Real Madrid has been known, among other things, for having the best players in the world in its team. Many times these come out of the club’s quarry (Iker Boxes and Raúl, for example), but on most occasions these come after a big disbursement. This type of management began with the arrival of Florentino Pérez, who is aware that a club like Madrid to have the big football stars in its ranks.

Since Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit, Los Blancos haven’t spent huge amounts of money on players. Apart from Eden Hazard, who arrived with the star poster but whose performance was furthest from that, the club focused on getting through young promises before his ‘shoot’ value. This is the case of Vinicius Jr., who arrived from Flamengo by 45 million eurosor Fede Valverde, who arrived from Peñarol by 5 million. Both are now fundamental pieces in Ancelotti’s scheme.

Still, this signings policy aims to hold in the upcoming summer window. Florentino Pérez wants to have a ‘galaxy’ of stars in the new Bernabéu, and the chosen ones to lead this group are Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland. That of Bondy completes the agreement this summer and everything is aimed at him arriving in the madridista ranks as a free agent, which does not mean that he will be free, since according to the newspaper ‘Mark’, his signing bonus will be of 80 million euros.

The case of the Norwegian is very different. The Borussia Dortmund striker is claimed by all the big clubs in the world, being the whites the big favorites next to Manchester City. Los Blancos’ initial idea is to land the player in the summer of 2023 when Karim Benzema finishes his deal, but should have put all the ‘meat in the asador’ by the footballer at the next signing market with such and not escape them the opportunity to do with his services.

A window of historical signatures

To secure both contracts, Real Madrid could close a veraniego market for the history books. Already he did it in the 2009 when they arrived at Santiago Bernabéu appear as Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Kaká and Xabi Alonso. The latest to do something similar is Paris Saint-Germain, who in the 2017 fichaban to Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. Then, during the last summer, did with the services of Lionel Messi, Sergio Bouquets, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Georginio Wijnaldum, causing impact in the world of football. Now maybe it’s the White House kicking the table.
