Florentino Perez has one final historical challenge left with Real Madrid

Real Madrid sealed their 36th La Liga title during the weekend after a convincing win over Cadiz at the Santiago Bernabeu. The celebrations, however, have been subdued given the UCL game coming midweek.

Irrespective of what happens against Bayer Munich, it is safe to say that Carlo Ancelotti’s side have endured a successful season with an impeccable win record.

The future only looks more promising. With Kylian Mbappe set to arrive in June with a couple of other big names, Real Madrid look set to dominate Spanish and European football.

The untouched record

Of the last 20 leagues, Barcelona have won 11 and Real Madrid have won seven, with the remaining two going Atletico Madrid’s way.

The Merengues, thus, wish to change the dynamic in the coming years by dominating La Liga, and in the process, hope to break one of the few records that Florentino Perez does not have to his name.

Never in the president’s tenure have Real Madrid won two La Liga titles in consecutive years, and Perez has thus set the challenge to his players to turn it around.

The idea would be to dominate Spain the way Manchester City and Bayern Munich dominate England and Germany respectively.

No competition

Barcelona have historically been the team to compete neck to neck with Real Madrid and thus pose the biggest threat to their chances.

The Catalans, however, are no longer the same in either an economic or sporting sense. With a massive rebuild ahead and no funds to process the same, it will likely take some time before the Blaugranas are back on their feet.

The plan, thus, is to maximise the current situation and establish Real Madrid as the biggest club in Spain beyond doubt.

Real Madrid have found their replacement for midfielder in case he follows Kroos’ footsteps

According to a report from Defensa Central, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to promote Castilla player Mario Martin if Dani Ceballos leaves the team this summer.

Ceballos’ future at the club is currently a hot topic and If he does decide to leave, Ancelotti has already identified Martín as his replacement.

This news came amidst the announcement of Toni Kroos’s retirement that has sent shockwaves through Real Madrid. 

Now, it is suggested that Kroos’s retirement was expected to influence Ceballos’s future at the club. 

Initially, it seemed the former Arsenal midfielder would leave, and the club was even searching for a new team for him. However, with Kroos leaving, there could be a possibility that Ceballos could have a more significant role next season.

Despite this, Real Madrid are not ruling out any possibilities. They are already considering potential replacements for Ceballos and have focused on promoting Martin, who wants to fight for a place in the first team.

It is said that the club is very pleased with his performance and there is even a chance that he could receive a surprise promotion if both Kroos and Ceballos leave, though the club does not expect Ceballos to depart.

Promoting Martin, who has been a regular part of the first-team training sessions, would be a cost-effective solution, aligning with club president Florentino Perez’s goal of minimizing spending on the midfield this season. 

It is to be noted that Martin has even had some playing time with the first team in recent weeks, indicating the club’s growing trust in his abilities.

Despite Kroos’s retirement announcement, Real Madrid does not plan to enter the transfer market for a new midfielder. The club is confident in the abilities of their current six midfielders, including the continued presence of Ceballos.

However, if Ceballos decides to leave, Madrid will look to their Castilla team for a replacement, with Martin being the top candidate.
