Real Madrid locker room believes team going through their worst moment of the season – report

Real Madrid are currently at the top of La Liga table, comfortably leading the chart with seven points.

They have also qualified for the UEFA Champions League quarter-final, but judging by their recent performance, it is fair to say the team from the Spanish capital is far from its usual self.

In fact, a report from Jorge C Picon (h/t RM4Arab) has affirmed that inside the locker room, everyone is aware that the team is performing at their worst at the moment even though the start of the season was quite enthusiastic.

Nobody is shying from the blame

The journalist claims that no one at Real Madrid is hiding away from reality and the recent draw against RB Leipzig underscored the considerable gap between the current performance level and the dominating form exhibited in the initial six months of the competition. 

This acknowledgment is not confined to the locker room, as the players openly recognize that mental fatigue, a consequence of the rigorous demands of the season, has begun to exact its toll.

No complaints from Ancelotti at all

Real Madrid have been marred by excessive injury issues this season and Carlo Ancelotti never complained even though the team played most of the season without their starting centre-backs.

Furthermore, even players like Vinicius Jr, Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni have had physical problems this season. Despite all this, though, the Los Blancos have done considerably well.

Now, the team is mentally tired, and important games are coming up. The coaching staff believes they can recover during the upcoming national team break but even before that, they have two league matches to play.

And for that, the team’s goal is clear: win both games to keep their advantage.

Speaking in an interview with Sport BILD (h/t AS), Germany legend Michael Ballack has claimed that Bayer Leverkusen sensation Florian Wirtz is ready to play for Real Madrid.

Wirtz is a player that Real Madrid have been closely monitoring for a while now, with the German sensation being seen as a long-term replacement for Toni Kroos, who announced his retirement yesterday.

A move for Wirtz is being planned for the summer of 2025 and Ballack believes that the Bundesliga title winner with Leverkusen is ready for the big move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

“Wirtz is ready for Real Madrid,” said Ballack.

“In terms of football, Wirtz can definitely play for Real Madrid. You can also see it in Jude Bellingham after his move from BVB: when you play with even better players, you become even better,” he added.

Wirtz has a contract with Bayer Leverkusen that runs until the summer of 2027. As things stand, the new German champions have no intentions of selling their prized asset this year.

However, there appears to be an acceptance that the German international will be on the move in 2025.

Other top clubs like Manchester City and Bayern Munich are also understood to be interested, but Real Madrid are likely to beat them in the race should it come down to that next year.

A move for Wirtz, though, could cost in excess of €100 million for Real Madrid should they do indeed decide to proceed with his signing next year.
