Following the transfer of their star man this summer, Real Madrid has set aside €372million to sign the next galactico.
According to AS, the Madrid giant have reportedly put aside a €372million budget, to sign their next galactico player.
Having lost Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus, the Spanish giants are desperate to bring in a new superstar player.
AS reports that the money apparently was “saved for an operation that never came to pass”, after prospective moves for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe were deemed impossible by Real’s transfer executives over the summer.
It is understood that there are still plans to sign one or maybe two marquee names, when the transfer window opens up again.
These plans may however be scuppered by president Florentino Perez’s plan to take on debt, to help finance a €575m renovation of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.
The report from AS further adds that not only did Florentino Perez do everything to lure Neymar to the Bernabeu, but at the same time Al Khelaifi refused to budge and eventually the Brazilian had to stay.
Now with Real Madrid looking at the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, Eden Hazard, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, Antoine Griezmann and many others as potential signings, they need to make sure the money is spent on the right place.
