Today’s latest news brings great news for Real Madrid fans as club president Florentino Perez announced that there is a £330m kitty for new transfers. If you had already written off the Spanish Champions League winners and La Liga runners-up to win the title this year, then you might want to think again.
The club plans on making a swoop for World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe, who was electrifying in the UEFA League of Nations over the last two weeks. In addition to Mbappe, Brazilian international Neymar is also a target and may come as a big bonus.
Currently, Real Madrid has started the season emphatically with three wins out of three picking up all nine points. However, the team still has its work cut out to overcome league winners Barcelona, who are currently top on goal difference. Both teams are expected to continue their winning streaks up until they meet at Camp Nou at the end of October.
With the transfer window already closed on the 31st August in Spain, Real Madrid will have to wait until the end of the year before making any new signings.
At the moment Real Madrid looks strong, but after losing Ronaldo to Juventus in the summer transfer window, the team is in need of some fresh faces. Both Mbappe and Neymar will be perfect additions to the squad, and there is always the possibility of a swoop for other big names like Mo Salah and Manchester United’s unsettled Pogba.
Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, has already hinted the superstar wants to leave United, and with Real Madrid back in the money after a quiet summer transfer window, there is no reason to rule out the possibility of the ex-Juventus star going to Spain. He has already been linked with Barcelona, and Real Madrid taking him from right under Barcelona’s eyes is a real possibility.
With only Barcelona to stand in their way between now and the new transfer window, Real Madrid is surely going to be in the running for the league title. With the likes of Mbappe, Neymar, and Pogba joining players such as Modric and Bale, the Real Madrid team will look unstoppable in the second half of the season, betting on Real Madrid to win the La Liga would be a wise investment.
All this may also be pending how successful Manchester United, PSV, and Paris Saint-Germain are in their Champions league bids. Even so, it is still worth putting your money on Real Madrid to win La Liga this year before the odds become too thin.
