Courtois and Benzema put the bandage on in Valladolid before the injury appeared and they buttoned up 2022 in the best way possible. Now, behind the grapes, New Year’s resolutions. And Real Madrid is lucky to have laid the foundations based on successes and a core of footballers who facilitate a sweet and constant transition. making of cicerone to the new talents so that the pressure pack that Madrid represents is not so heavy. Modric, Kroos, Benzema, Marcelo, Casemiro… Players who, over time, have taken or must step aside and the white team is clear about its future structure. In Chamartín there is a designed road map. a notebook with three names that are identified as necessary brushstrokes to complete the future: Bellingham (20 years old), Alphonso Davies (22) and Erling Haaland (22). The room is already closed: Endric (16).
A poker that, obviously, will not be easy to complete. For now, an ace is already up the sleeve. Endrick, at 16, already speaks in a Real Madrid key. “I think about it and… I want to win many titles at Real Madrid”, confessed after scoring three goals in the ‘Game of the Stars’. 35 million euros (variables aside) for a footballer who made Barça, PSG or Chelsea sigh, but who chose to follow in the footsteps of his friend Vinicius (“When I was in Madrid, he invited me to spend a few days with him; we trained together and he gave me some advice ”). It will arrive in 2024, when he turns 18 (July 21). Same summer in which the names of Davies and Haaland will be put on the table. Two opportunities that the market will present, but in different contexts…
AS has already revealed Madrid’s interest in Bayern’s left-back. Davies, a supersonic footballer (this year he has reached 36 km/h), has been identified as the perfect reinforcement for the ‘3′ lane. Mendy presents some offensive gap that makes one doubt, while Alaba and Rüdiger, other options that Ancelotti has managed (especially the Austrian), seem more comfortable in the center of defense. The Canadian is the complete package. A physical, experienced left-back, used to pressure and with a contractual situation that Madrid hopes to use in his favor. His relationship with the Bavarian club expires in 2025. Hence, 2024 is the year marked for the assaultto try to iron out the final price that would now have to be paid.
rebuild and convince
Haaland’s case is particular and has edges that should be worked on. As this newspaper reportedin 2024 there is a €150 million clause that would allow him to leave Manchester City. Last year bridges were built between the Norwegian, his environment and Real Madrid. However, between the presence of Benzema and the expected, at that time, arrival of Mbappé, they did not intersect. To get hold of the footballer born in Leeds it would be necessary to convince him again and there are many uncontrollable variables right now. City itself is one of them. Haaland has always been voracious. The Champions League is his favorite hunting ground and to win it he has reached the blue zone of Manchester. A competition where Madrid teaches. The course of events will mark a large part of the next movements of the cyborg, who did not want to be tied to 100%. Hence that clause… Also, in 2024, Benzema will go towards the age of 37 (he meets them on December 19) and it seems chimerical to think of Endrick as indisputable from minute one.
first in line
Finally, the signing that will be addressed before. Jude Victor William Bellingham did not want to renew with Dortmund before the World Cup. He does not want to hinder his departure and his priority is Madrid among his bidders, as well reported by AS. The reason? She does not want to return to the Premier. City, United and Liverpool are the sirens with the most suggestive songs, but Bellingham understands that his decision to leave his country to become a star was the right one. The growing role he has at Signal Iduna Park, where he arrived at just 17 years old and is now one of the captains, is the best endorsement of that choice. Qatar 2022, confirmation that it is not a promise, but a reality, even though its potential is enormous. At the Bernabéu offices, they will try to negotiate an affordable price, about 120 million euros, fleeing from any bidding war that triggers the auction. The good relationship between clubs, between Hans-Joachim Watzke and Florentino Pérez, bosses of both entities, will be key for the white desire to become corporeal.
With Bellingham, Real Madrid’s midfield would be completely remodeled, with Kroos and Modric showing what the idiosyncrasy of the white club is like. Win, win and win again, as Luis Aragonés would say. Nobody better than German and Croatian so that English, Tchouameni and Camavinga keep drinking in their knowledge until their respective bodies (or mind in the case of Kroos) say enough. Valverde, more of a winger than a midfielder with Ancelotti, would be the other piece of a machine room that would have all the needs covered. Three priorities with which to draw the main lines of the coming Real Madrid. A Real Madrid in which Militao, the aforementioned Tchouameni and Camavinga, Rodrygo and, above all, a Vinicius called to be the leader of the new herd are already waiting.
