Real Madrid’s transfer plans are yet to change and the club are still pretty stagnant when it comes to acquiring players in the transfer market. They have got a couple of players off their books and more outgoing transfers are expected to be confirmed before the window shuts close.
Here are the top Real Madrid transfer news and rumours of the day:
Van de Beek confirms Real Madrid agreement
Danny van de Beek joined Manchester United this week but has confirmed that he was inches away from moving to Real Madrid. The midfielder revealed to De Telegraaf that he was all set to move to Spain, but Los Blancos pulled the plug on the move at the last moment.
He claims that the move might have been halted because Real Madrid could not sell the players that were excess to requirements. He said:
“As you know, everything was set with Real Madrid and the clubs had an agreement as well, but for some reason it ultimately didn’t happen. At first, you feel angry and question whether that kind of opportunity is going to happen again. I guess that what happened is that the players who were supposedly going to leave, ended up staying and that’s why Real Madrid pulled away from the move.” [H/T ManagingMadrid]
