Real Madrid has everyone in agreement. Yesterday, the Merengues completed the transfer of Aurélien Tchouaméni for more than 100 million euros. The officialization is no longer missing. A nice move from the Merengues since Liverpool and PSG were also interested. With Antonio Rüdiger, the residents of the Santiago-Bernabéu stadium therefore have their second summer recruit. However, the Spaniards still need to strengthen in other positions. A left side or an attacker could land in the Iberian capital.
For this, the club chaired by Florentino Pérez will not have a completely free hand. In effect, brand explains that Real Madrid have to manage very important administrative problems. The regulations allow each club to field three non-European players on the pitch. But with Eder Militão, Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior, the Iberian team already has three non-EU players in its ranks. And none of these elements seem on track to obtain dual nationality by January. Vinicius Jr had however applied for a Spanish passport in 2020.
Real Madrid don’t have a free hand
But to date, he still has not obtained the precious sesame. The file would have been delayed due to the covid-19 epidemic. Which worries Los Blancos, who are hoping the Brazilian will get Spanish citizenship this summer. But there is no indication that this will be the case. What weighs down the transfer window of the European champions. brand explains that they will not be able to repatriate this summer Kubo (Japan) and Reinier (Brazil), who are also from outside the EU. They will have to find them a new base. Same thing for the future offensive recruit.
As explained yesterday, Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City) is courted. But the striker only has Brazilian nationality. brand adds this Wednesday that the Spaniards do not want to take any risks and will not position themselves on non-EU players. This limits the scope of the club. Real Madrid are now looking at other options to find an element that can act as an understudy for Benzema or can compete with him. Several players have been offered but don’t fit what Madrid want. A nice thorn in the side of the Merengues, who will have the same problems to strengthen themselves in other positions.
