Real Madrid are teetering on the brink of closing the summer transfer window. Toni Kroos has decided not to extend his contract with Los Blancos, Casemiro has a major beef with Aurelien Tchouameni and there is talk that Paul Pogba could be heading to Arsenal or Wolves.
Real Madrid’s summer transfer window is winding down
With six weeks to go before the summer transfer window closes, Real Madrid have been in no hurry to sign new players. The club have already missed out on the signing of Kylian Mbappe from PSG. However, they did manage to sign Aurelien Tchouameni in one of the biggest transfers ever, and they have also signed free-agent midfielder Antonio Rudiger.
Real Madrid have been linked with a move for a centre-back, but have been unable to find a suitable replacement. However, the club are now strengthening their squad with the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni for an initial price of $85 million. That fee could rise to a total of $105 million if add-ons are agreed.
As the summer transfer window draws to a close, it is important to keep an eye on Cristiano Ronaldo’s situation. While it is unlikely that PSG will sign him, he has been linked with Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone is keen to land the Portuguese international, who could help Atleti win the title next season.
Toni Kroos has decided not to extend his contract with Los Blancos
Real Madrid are understandably disappointed at the news that Toni Kroos has decided not to sign a new contract with them. The German international has made it clear on several occasions that he does not wish to extend his current deal. However, the club respects his decision. He has previously said that he will only sign a new deal if it suits his feelings and ability to play. He also wants to avoid being a financial burden for the club.
The German international’s contract is due to expire next summer and Real Madrid have been keen to tie him down to a new deal. However, the German is reportedly looking for a new challenge and has decided not to extend his contract. He is aware that competition for starting places is tough at Real Madrid and would rather take his time to decide his future.
There has been speculation that Real Madrid are interested in signing another player after deciding not to extend Kroos’ contract. However, it has since emerged that the club are making fresh bids to sign Eder Militao and Toni Kroos. According to the Spanish media outlet Cadena SER, Real Madrid have made an offer to Kroos, who is 32 years old and in the final year of his contract. However, the midfielder has decided to delay signing a new contract with the club because he wants to assess how he will perform in the coming season.
Casemiro is angry at Aurelien Tchouameni signing
Aurelien Tchouameni’s signing at Real Madrid has enraged Casemiro. The Frenchman feels that he’s received a cold reception. Moreover, Real Madrid’s 4-3-3 formation only allows one defensive midfielder to be a pivot. This season, Aurelien Tchouameni has joined the club for EUR80m.
While Tchouameni’s arrival has angered Casemiro, it is understandable that the two players feel competition. A healthy rivalry can be beneficial for both players. However, the two players have hardly spoken to each other. While Carlo Ancelotti and his staff have been happy with the arrival of Tchouameni, the Brazilian defender has been linked with a move to another club.
After winning all the trophies at Real Madrid, Casemiro is now looking to move on to a new challenge. His current target is Barcelona, one of the most famous clubs in the world. However, the transfer of Casemiro to Barcelona has not been on Erik ten Hag’s wishlist. In fact, the Spanish club have already agreed on a fee for Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong, but they have not closed the deal.
The deal for Aurelien Tchouameni is a win-win situation for the club. Although PSG’s new agent is meeting with Juventus officials, the new agent of Paul Pogba is a potential target for Aurelien Tchouameni. But there are some factors to consider before committing to the deal.
Paul Pogba could join Arsenal or Wolves
The Frenchman has been linked with two Premier League clubs and has the potential to leave Manchester United this summer. Arsenal are looking to strengthen their midfield and are likely to consider signing Pogba, who is 29 years old. However, the Gunners will have to contend with other offers. Their current midfield options are limited with the injured Granit Xhaka and the injured Martin Odegaard.
Ruben Neves could be a top target for both Manchester United and Arsenal. However, it is unclear whether the two clubs will be able to sign both players. The Portuguese international is highly sought after by both teams and is likely to cost at least PS50 million. If Pogba were to leave Manchester United, the Gunners and Wolves would have to compete for him.
Pogba has been linked with a move away from Manchester United in recent weeks. He is understood to have set his sights on a move to Spain. Although he is currently a member of Juventus, he has a history with both clubs. The Frenchman has also been linked with a move to Liverpool and Manchester City.
Sergi Gnabry could join Real Madrid
Real Madrid are in the market for a new wide-attacker and have been linked with a move for Belgian international Sergi Gnabry. Having failed to sign Kylian Mbappe in the recent Bosman deal, Real are now on the hunt for a replacement. Meanwhile, Arsenal are in need of an upgrade in their right-side attack. Signing Gnabry would solve this problem, and his age and talent would make him an attractive target for Real Madrid.
Real Madrid are reportedly keen on signing Bayern Munich midfielder Serge Gnabry, although Liverpool have been linked with him too. Bayern Munich have also been linked with him, and he has 12 months left on his contract. However, Real are not convinced that they can get a replacement for Gnabry.
The Spanish club have long been linked with the midfielder. However, the recent failure of Arsenal to qualify for the Champions League has weakened their position and Gnabry has been linked with Real Madrid. The club are said to have made an improved offer to sign the player, but Arsenal are still considering the move.
Bruno Guimaraes is a potential replacement for Casemiro
According to reports, Real Madrid have identified Brazilian Bruno Guimaraes as a potential replacement for Casemiro. The Brazilian has been a fan favourite at Newcastle since joining the club from Lyon for PS40m last January and has regularly expressed his satisfaction at life at St James’ Park. Real Madrid are expected to pay a huge fee to bring Guimaraes to the club.
Newcastle are currently in the relegation zone and Guimaraes has been pivotal to their recent form. The 24-year-old has started every Premier League game this season for the Magpies and is expected to play a key role in the team next season. Newcastle manager Eddie Howe has made clear that he will not sell the player before the transfer deadline. However, if Manchester United sign Casemiro before the deadline, Guimaraes may face an uphill battle to join Real Madrid.
The club could demand a fee of twice the amount Lyon paid Newcastle for Guimaraes. However, the Magpies have been reluctant to sell Guimaraes and want to keep him as part of the club’s long-term project.
Goncalo Ramos could join Crystal Palace or Lyon
Goncalo Ramos is being monitored by Crystal Palace and several other Premier League sides. Newcastle, Leeds, West Ham and Wolves are all thought to be interested. Paris Saint-Germain are also a potential destination for the striker. In addition, Newcastle and Nottingham Forest have held discussions with Benfica regarding the sale of the Argentine international. Benfica want PS30 million for the player and have asked Palace to keep them informed of developments.
Benfica are also interested in signing Ramos. It is believed he would fill the void left by Darwin Nunez, who has signed for Liverpool. Benfica are not under any financial pressure to sell their star strikers, so Ramos could be an excellent option.
Newcastle United are considering a bid of PS25 million for Benfica’s hitman. The academy graduate was a hot prospect last season, starting in 17 of his 29 league appearances and providing seven goals and one assist. The 21-year-old has also represented Portugal at all levels of youth football.
