youin a hurry, but without delay. The debate over whether to sign a striker for Real Madrid is no longer a priority, but that doesn’t mean the door is completely closed.

Let’s not forget that the market has not yet officially reopened. However, what the club know for sure is that they won’t sign for the sake of signing if there is nothing that meets their expectations.

Kylian Mbappe everything influenced, in particular the possible arrival of Haaland, something impossible with the French who has not yet defined his future. The Norwegian was the man, but the bet on the Frenchman put the brakes on everything.

Are there no strikers in the market who could act as Benzemais lining? Of course there are, but real Madrid are not willing to start an investment if this option does not convince, which happens after analyzing the situation and the different conditions that exist.

The first and the one that raises the difficulty is the issue of spots outside the EU, something that does not seem to have a solution before 2023.

The option of Gabriel Jesus, Ancelotti’s favorite player, collapsed because of this. It is the same for Darwin Nunezwho is set to sign for Liverpool.

The same goes for the young talents who have appeared in Brazil and Argentina in recent months. This door is closed for the moment.

The key is to wait

The obvious option and the one that prevails today is to wait. The idea is to start pre-season and keep an eye on the market and even consider a loan or a short-term contract.

This potential new signing should be a quid pro quo for Benzema, never an alternative as at the moment they don’t see this player anywhere except for the Norwegian recently signed by City.

French, real Madridthe Madrid leaders expect two more years at the highest level, but it is also clear that it will not be easy to maintain both the physical and technical level displayed this season and even more so with the World Cup which is coming up. plays in the middle of the campaign.

For the moment, Real Madrid leaders have stopped any movement on Juanmi Latasa. Rayo seemed to have been the destination for the player still playing for Castilla, but everything has been put on hold.

The academy player had even received offers from a foreign club, but the chances of him becoming a first-team player are increasing day by day. With a contract running until 2024, the move would also come with a new contract.

Borja Mayoral returns after finishing his time between Roma and Getafe, but everything indicates he will feature again in some sort of deal. The team chaired by Angel Torres is one of the interested parties.

There have been several pre-seasons in which the striker has launched them without having a clear destination and the club and the player are trying to resolve everything before the start of the new season. The dream of returning to the first team is still there, but it seems more difficult.

Jovic and Mariano are open to proposals and are looking for a new destination. Benzema, Rodrygo, Vinicius, Hazard and Asensio (future to be decided) are the other strikers or at least the ones Ancelotti is counting on, who as he said: “We are going to invent something”, like playing with two strikers and giving more breadth to the midfield.

The World Cup will be decisive

The World Cup to be held in mid-autumn raises new expectations in the market. The club’s activity will stop the second week of November and will not resume until Christmas, which practically coincides with the opening of the winter transfer window.

This means that a blunder or an absence at the start of the season will have less impact because the number of matches will be reduced.

The World Cup always brings appearances from players unknown to the general public, but not sporting directors, who use the World Cup as an argument for what they write in their reports.

Even at the end of the event in Qatar, the problem of non-EU registration could have been solved, which would open the field for possible signings.

In real Madridof the future there is a name that flies on the horizon and which is none other than Endrick. The Brazilian, who already has a professional contract with Palmeiras, has to wait two years before he can make the jump to Europe.

His game continues to grow and real Madrid are watching him. At least HaalandCity’s presence helps, as his agent and family were clear the Norwegian was closing the door on buying new young talent.
