The 2022-23 season was a disappointing one for Real. Real lost the La Liga title to rival Barcelona and the UEFA Champions League (UCL) to Manchester City in the quarterfinals. The only consolation was winning the Copa del Rey, their first national cup in nine years.
Real are having a busy summer as they look to restore their pride by winning the title next season. First, they signed Jude Bellingham, 19, from Borussia Dortmund after a fierce battle with several big clubs. Bellingham is an England prodigy who is touted as the next world class player.
Dortmund announced on July 7 (KST) that “Bellingham is moving to Real. The transfer has been agreed and final details are being discussed. The transfer fee will be €130 million (approximately $144 million), plus up to an additional 30 percent or so of the transfer fee,” the club announced. The contract runs for six years, until 2029, and the buyout clause is reportedly €1 billion 메이저놀이터.
With Bellingham’s arrival, Real will have a top-notch midfield. While “veterans” Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are still in place, they now have Aurélien Chouameni, Eduardo Camabinga, and Federico Valverde. Valverde is a wing-forward and Kamabinga can also play left fullback. It’s a perfectly structured and versatile squad.
It doesn’t stop there. Real have also identified Harry Kane (Tottenham) as a replacement for Karim Benzema, who left for the Al Ittihad. Kane is also expected to join Real. Alfredo Pedulla said on Monday (Aug. 8), “Kane is very close to Real. An agreement between the clubs has been finalized. We just need to discuss the details.”
Real are also hoping to add left-back Alfonso Davies (Munich), who is said to be their next priority, to form a ‘Galactico trio’.
