Mathys Tel was one of Bayern Munich’s biggest investments during the summer transfer window, as they paid €28 million to secure the services of the attacker from Stade Rennais.

Aged just 16 then, it was a calculated risk by the Bavarians, who were determined to add more youthful exuberance to their attacking department, especially after the departure of Robert Lewandowski, coupled with Thomas Muller’s lack of form.

However, as revealed by German news outlet TZ (h/t Mundo Deportivo), Tel might not have landed at Bayern Munich in the summer, as Real Madrid were interested in his services.

The report suggests the Whites had been keeping close track of the Frenchman from his time at Rennes. The teenage prospect, after all, made quite an impression with his explosive performances in the French youth leagues and had even racked up ten competitive appearances for the Ligue 1 team by the end of last season.

Real Madrid, therefore, had considered Tel as an excellent long-term investment option. But the player did not join the Merengues as he had already committed to joining Bayern Munich. He was, in fact, delighted at the opportunity to join the Bundesliga outfit.

The move has paid off well, too, it seems, as Tel has recently produced some excellent performances in the Bundesliga. He has already netted three goals in seven league appearances and looks set to become a trusted option for coach Julian Nagelsmann.

Real Madrid, though, have made their investments elsewhere. They notably secured the signing of Endrick from Palmeiras, although the Brazilian is not eligible to move to Europe until he turns 18 in 2024.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
