Hello and welcome to the Real Madrid transfer news and rumours of the day! Here are the top stories of the day surrounding the Blancos!
Marcelo on how he could leave Real Madrid
Real Madrid vice-captain Marcelo has laid out the condition which would put him out of Real Madrid. He stated that while he has never thought about leaving the Galacticos if the club want him gone, he will leave.
But he believes that day will never come.
“Leaving Madrid has never crossed my mind, I trust myself more than any other person and there is no reason to leave,” he noted.
“I trust in myself, in my work, but if the day comes when Madrid do not want me, I’m going.
“I’ll be sad, but I’ll go, though I’m sure that I’m not going to be offloaded.”
The demands of Kylian Mbappe
Kylian Mbappe is the best young player in the world. At the mere age of 20, he is already a world-class player and the fact that he ended up in the top five of the Ballon d’Or rankings last year is a testament to his ability.
Real Madrid have been courting him for a while and came very close to signing him in 2017. However, he chose the financially better package of PSG and has been there ever since.
That hasn’t stopped the Galacticos from eying him and according to reports from Spain, he has passed a list of demands to Real Madrid if they want to sign him.
For starters, he wants a pay-rise, which Madrid are willing to give, being the leader of the team, the number 10 shirt, a private driver, butlers, bodyguards, a house in the high-profile housing society of Las Rozas and a private jet.
Luka Jovic bid made
According to Bild via AS, Real Madrid have made a €45 million bid to sign Luka Jovic from Frankfurt. This news comes a day after it was reported that Barcelona have agreed on personal terms with the player, who is also targeted by Liverpool.
