With just two signings, Real Madrid have shaken the world of football. Despite missing out on the signature of Kylian Mbappe, the club acquired the services of Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni in recent weeks.

Needless to say, the addition of two players of such quality to a side that has just been crowned the champions of Europe is frightening. However, Florentino Perez must put equal emphasis on departures to raise funds.

Alvaro Odriozola is one of the players Los Blancos could look to cash in on this month. The 26-year-old spent the last season on loan at Fiorentina but will return to the Bernabeu in June.

According to reports from Tuttosport (h/t MadridXtra) Inter Milan are interested in the right-back’s signing. Real Madrid ask for around €20 million for their defender.

The Nerazzurri will reportedly only make a move for Odriozola if Denzel Dumfries leaves the club. As it stands, the Dutch international has offers on the table from several Premier League clubs and looks closer to leaving Italy than staying.

Real Madrid still have a long transfer window ahead and the funds from Odriozola’s transfer would come in handy. His contract with Real Madrid runs until 2024 and his release clause stands at €40 million.

Odriozola played 25 league games for Fiorentina last season, scoring one goal and providing one assist. However, he oversaw just three clean sheets and averaged just over four defensive actions per game.

Daniel Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez have covered well at right-back for the Madrid-based club this season, and while fans want the signing of another player in that position, Madrid are likely to attempt signing a left-back following Marcelo’s departure.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
