Real Madrid’s constant injuries have hit the team hard across the field. With just three forwards available in the squad of whom one is injured, the topic of signing a new forward in January has emerged as a leading topic of discussion.

The words of Mauro Icardi’s agent, thus, only fuelled such talks. He admitted that he was in Madrid to talk about the Argentine striker’s move, albeit with no concrete offer on the table yet.

“I’m in Madrid right now (yesterday). Real Madrid has not made any offer for Icardi. They have not yet made an official offer. But we are talking to those responsible for Real Madrid,” he said.

Real Madrid deny the news

Now, according to reports from MARCA, Real Madrid have denied the news of Icardi’s agent talking to club officials. They went a step further to state that they did not even know the agent at all.

It is thus confirmed that Los Blancos never held any interest in signing the Galatasaray star. As has been the case many times before, it appears to be an effort by the agent to make his client’s profile appear more appealing to suitors.

Joselu living the dream

Joselu has not enjoyed much continuity with Real Madrid as a starter this season, yet has not disappointed whenever given the chance.

The 33-year-old already has eight goals and two assists to his name across all competitions this season in just 21 games. Most recently, he was the hero of the night for Real Madrid, scoring twice in the comeback win over Union Berlin.

With the veteran striker performing optimally, there appears to be no room for a new striker. Moreover, the Merengues continue to maintain that they will make no recruitments in January.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said that during a recent training session, he bumped into Raul, a former striker and current Castilla manager, who confessed to him that he did not like his decision to retire from the game.

The midfielder added that he would now be interested in playing the Legends match where the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Raul participate. 

The veteran admitted that playing alongside these legends one day would be quite exciting.

“When I left the training yesterday, Raul was outside. He told me that he did not like the decision at first but found something positive because now I’m definitely playing this legends game with him,” said Kroos on his podcast

“He said I had to be there. Me and Zizou playing behind him, Figo on the right, and RC3 (Roberto Carlos) at the back. That could be funny,” he added.

During the early hours of Tuesday, May 21, Kroos announced that he would retire from professional football after the upcoming European Championship in his home country.

As a result, Real Madrid now have to work on an alternate strategy to plan life beyond Kroos. As suggested before, the Los Blancos are of the idea that at present, there is no one in the market who can fill the void.

On the other hand, though, Dani Ceballos’ chances of staying have now increased. At the same time, there are reports that Joshua Kimmich is being monitored, but nothing seems concrete yet.

For now, Real Madrid are largely expected to rely on the current roster as the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and even Jude Bellingham are more than capable of occupying Kroos’ position.

If even that does not work out, the team from the Spanish capital can look into the youth system to rope in a capable alternative.
