The 2019/2020 season will be a before and after for the Real Madrid. Last year whites lived one of the most unstable stages of the club in many years. Florentino Pérez has wanted to act and cut the roots of the sport irregularity of the team with a profound renovation of the Madrid project. A roadmap that included changes in terms of signings, seasonal planning and template configuration. Changes that many of them have already taken these last weeks.
Zidane returned to Real Madrid's bench in March to take the reins again. The leadership and the joy that the French emanates were the first stone of the new and ambitious project. The French coach is the visible face of the new team that prepare the targets to assault all the titles and try to return the institution to the path of triumph in which it was immersed.
Now Real Madrid is already in Canada for the first time stage pre-season summer The Whites are already preparing the new campaign with an eye on the start of the League that will take place on the weekend of August 18. The new signings are already in the dynamic of Zidane, adapting to his new team and experiencing coexistence with his teammates. Transfers that have broken records in terms of transfers throughout Europe.
Real Madrid, the club that has invested the most in Europe
This summer Real Madrid has emerged as the club that has made the most investment in signings to date. A total of 303 million euros to finance the arrivals of Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Eder Militao, Rodrygo Goes, Ferland Mendy and Takefusa Kubo; the latter as a bet for the future to start the preseason with the first team and then play in the Castile of Raul.
Whites outperform all European clubs in terms of investment. The second on the list, Atlético de Madrid, is more than 100 million euros in spending by whites (196.5 million according to Transfermarkt). Borussia Dortmund (127.5), Bayern Munich (118) and Barcelona (113) are also following in the wake of Real Madrid in the summer market.
Hazard, second most expensive signing in the world
As if that were not enough, Real Madrid not only stands out in general investment level, but also in the list of most expensive summer signings of the galaxy. The whites, with the signing of Hazard (Chelsea, 100 million euros), they only have Atlético de Madrid ahead with the incorporation of Joao Felix (126). Lucas Hernández by Bayern (80), De Jong for Barça (75) and Rodri with the Manchester City (70), occupy the rest of positions of the European top-5 players.
Despite having invested more than 300 million euros, Florentino Pérez is not satisfied with this and Real Madrid still expects to close more incorporations. The squad still needs reinforcements in the midfield and the white club could close the arrival of one or two midfielders (Pogba or Van de Beek), in addition to a possible pump like Mbappé or Neymar, as reported THE BERNABÉU.
'Operation exit' wind in stern
The funding of the new project is not a problem for Real Madrid, as whites have accelerated the club's 'exit operation' in recent weeks. The dome of the entity has certified the sales of Marcos Llorente (Atlético de Madrid, 40 million euros); Mateo Kovacic (Chelsea, 45); Theo Hernández (Milan, 20); Raúl de Tomás (Benfica, 20); and the assignments of Martin Odegaard (Real Sociedad), Sergio Reguilón (Sevilla) and Luca Zidane (Santander Racing).
Soon Real Madrid will finish specifying the assignment of Dani Ceballos, which aims to mediate Europe through clubs such as Tottenham or Arsenal; and the sale of James Rodriguez, who are currently located between Naples and Atlético de Madrid ahead of next season. As the summer progresses, the whites, who have accelerated their outings, will be able to see what the team needs most and what is even more expendable in the squad.
