The circumstances derived from the Covid-19 pandemic will not allow, as in previous years, Real Madrid go to the transfer market to make a large outlay of money. However, the needs to build a balanced and competent staff for the coming year are still there, of course, and that is why whites do not stop combing the market.
Specifically they do so in search of a central room that reinforces the rear. A lag that, in the short term, is the domain of the Varane-Ramos couple who, on the other hand, respect their injuries. However, time does not stop and Madrid, which has Militao and Nacho in a second echelon, knows that, perhaps, they need another young defender with potential for improvement.
For this, Jesús Vallejo arrived at the time, but the truth is that injuries have prevented him from showing his level and, in the clubs in which he has been loaned, he has not excelled in excess. That is why the hand could enter the exit operation.
Thus, and with Nacho always on the wire due to his low participation and his increasingly advanced age, the whites would have set their sights on French football to undertake a list of 'possible' among which are Upamecano (RB Leipzig), Gabriel, Brazilian, (Lille) and, the last, Benoit Badiashile (As Monaco).
In the case of the first, its recent renewal with the German team is known that could respond to an unofficial deal between club and player to be able to leave next summer. He is liked by Zidane and with a great career ahead in the French team and, of course, a demonstrable resume in a leading team such as that of the energy drinks company.
Upamecano, on Madrid's radar
As for the rest, both from Ligue 1, they are one step behind Upamecano, although they are closely followed by the Real Madrid scouting team. And it is that both recall the formula followed by Varane when hardly anyone knew the young Gallic central and, now, ten years later, he has become the central axis with the captain.
Zidane set his eyes on his potential and wanted to recruit him under express wish. He was Florentino's advisor at that time and the President gave the green light to a transfer that, over time, has corresponded to him.
Thus, Real Madrid, in an atypical summer, has before it the task of reinforcing the defense where, on the other hand, it seems that it will recover Álvaro Odriozola for the right-back and will get rid of the services of Sergio Reguilón on the left-handed side that , for the moment, he remains on loan at Sevilla until the end of the season.
