Real Madrid has the main outline of the transfer plans for the coming seasons – the purchase of João Cancelo in 2023 and Erling Braut Haaland in 2024, AS reports.
The “royal” still feel insatiable. The best club in terms of success in the European arena wants to continue to fuel hunger in the trophy race.
On Santiago Bernabéu everything fits like a Swiss watch. After winning the European Cup and Super Cup as well as the Spanish championship, there is still a bright future for the team. This is evidenced by the recently perfectly worked out process of implementing prospective players who will smoothly replace those outgoing.
Éder Militão, Aurélien Tchouaméni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinícius Júnior – these are new generation footballers who are to keep the course in the further building of their power. To refine this project even more, Real Madrid activists will roll up their sleeves for appropriate additions.
So, with the next summer at the back of their heads, the board will be working hard to get João Cancelo. Even while working in the Premier League, Carlo Ancelotti appreciated the universality of the Portuguese. The player can successfully play the role of a right defender and pose an equally great threat across the width of the pitch.
The 28-year-old gained recognition in the eyes of Pep Guardiola and was recruited from Juventus for 65 million euros before the 2019/2020 season. Since then, the player has started to rebuild. Currently, in addition to a large number of clean sheets, he has eight hits and 20 assists on the counter.
LaLiga leaders are counting on the fact that in negotiations with “Citizens” EUR 50 million will turn out to be enough money to make a deal. However, this is rather too optimistic approach, considering the presented form of the player and the contract that expires in less than five years.
Cancelo is reportedly aware of the interest from Madrid and doesn’t say no. So it looks like the transfer saga is still ahead of us in all its glory.
It is widely known that Erling Haaland’s player card is a tasty morsel for Real. The beginning of the Norwegian in the Premier League is electrifying, which only confirms the belief that the operation codenamed “Karim Benzema’s successor” will be carried out in a two-year perspective.
From the second half of 2024, the former Borussia Dortmund striker will be removed after the activation of the EUR 180 million clause (although earlier “AS” mentioned 150 million).
There are many indications that only Real in this period will be able to make such a large transaction.
In his debut season at Etihad, Haaland has already scored 14 goals in 10 games.
