Real Madrid does not appear to be returning to the transfer market as we approach the European Super Cup. While waiting for a few players to be released by the white team, the newly crowned Champions League champions have taken over the services of Aurélien Tchouaméni and Antonio Rüdiger, thereby closing out any remaining opening in the roster for newcomers.
There are often approaches from agencies and other teams to sell players to the merengue team at the white offices. According to L’Equipe, Real Madrid would have been able to acquire Manchester City player Bernardo Silva for roughly €80 million from Jorge Mendes.
For one of the finest players in the Premier League, this is a huge sum. In addition, Gestifute’s president would have made the offer to FC Barcelona, which is looking into Bernardo’s options if the club can free Frenkie de Jong, on the agenda of Manchester United and Chelsea.
For whites, this procedure would be unthinkable today. If Florentino Pérez can get rid of Marco Asensio, who is under contract until the end of the season, the Portuguese may fill in on the right wing. Regardless, the Etihad Stadium is already preparing for a future without Bernardo, with Lucas Paquetá as a possible citizen target.
