A sour start of the season is already inviting a crisis for Zinedine Zidane. Injuries and relatively short squad depth also look like a big issue in Madrid.
Winning or losing, it’s always interesting at Santiago Bernabeu.
Just minutes after winning their last Champions League title, Ronaldo hinted at leaving the club, while Bale complained about playing time after scoring the double in that final.
So when the things are that crazy after a Champions League glory, just imagine the chaos amidst a bad league start after a trophyless season.
The previous season didn’t just bring in zero trophies. What’s even more painful is that Barcelona knocked Los Blancos out of the Copa del Rey.
Another season without a triumph looks like it could be too much for Florentino Perez.
The two standout names among the rumors are Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland.
The ultra-talented duo could push Real Madrid to a new era with their Galactico pedigree.
However, it won’t be easy getting to them.
Jadon Sancho is probably the most sought-after youngster in Europe, especially with Mbappe being unavailable to anyone.
On the other hand, Salzburg knows how good Haaland is, which means that Madrid would have to pay a hefty price to get him.
Los Blancos will do everything to make a difference next summer. The latest big arrival, Eden Hazard, isn’t playing up to his standard.
The Belgian scored only one goal, which is still one more than the other big newcomer, Luka Jovic who scored none.
