Real Madrid were not the busiest club during the recently concluded January transfer window. The reigning Spanish champions did not make any noticeable moves in the market, other than the signing of Endrick from Palmeiras.

The Brazilian whizkid is set to join the club when he turns 18 in 2024, with Real Madrid splashing a fortune for his services.

The signing of Endrick was a crucial part of Real Madrid’s plans for the future. In addition to the Brazilian, Real Madrid are also on the verge of signing Fran Garcia.

Although not yet official, Rayo Vallecano president has recently confirmed that Garcia will join Real Madrid at the end of the season. The youngster is set to join the Whites for a meagre fee, and will likely serve as a long-term replacement for Marcelo.

According to Diario AS (h/t Madrid Xtra), the acquisition of Endrick and Garcia means Real Madrid have now secured the signing of two of their three positional targets. The Spanish giants are now only short of one more top target in the form of Jude Bellingham.

The Englishman has been identified as the club’s desired choice to address the midfield department that has appeared highly reliant on the services of ageing stars such as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric.

Real Madrid, therefore, will go all out in the market for the services of Bellingham. Signing the Englishman has indeed become a priority ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window, as the club brace itself for life without the likes of Kroos and Modric.

However, luring Bellingham away from Borussia Dortmund will not be a walk in the park, especially with the Bundesliga giants determined to squeeze a hefty valuation out of the young midfielder. Liverpool, too, are involved in the chase, so it will be interesting to see what the future holds of the teenage prospect this coming summer.

    I say it once again,as it was reported that Bellingham gave a hint of wishing to play alongside some players at Real Madrid,let those players used to lure him to develop much of desire to see himself in Madrid colours.
    Actually if Real Madrid can secure the sugnature of Bellingham they will be tops.

Real Madrid midfielder trained away from the group last week, but has no injury – report

With the international break underway, several Real Madrid players have been called up for national team assignments. The stars who have not travelled for international duty have continued to work at the club’s Valdebebas training facility to prepare for the restart.

Toni Kroos is one such player who has remained in Madrid, having retired from international football back in 2021.

However, there had been concerns growing around the 33-year-old’s physical condition as he regularly did indoor work last week and was not spotted in group training with his teammates.

Now, Sergio Quirante has come up with an update on Kroos’ situation, stating that even though the midfielder largely did individual work inside the facilities over the last week, he is fine and has no injuries.

Taking advantage of the international break, the former Bayern Munich superstar is understood to have gone through an individual program to prepare for the final, decisive stretch of the 2022/23 season.

Kroos not being injured comes as a big positive for Real Madrid, ahead of important games against Real Valladolid and Barcelona within the first five days of April.

The rest of the Real Madrid midfield contingent – Luka Modric, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, Federico Valverde, and Dani Ceballos – are all away on international duties and could return with some fatigue from the travel.

So, it is important that Kroos is fully fit and ready to go as Real Madrid look to cut down the gap to the top of the table in La Liga and also make it to the finals of the Copa del Rey by overturning a first-leg deficit against Barcelona in the semi-finals.

Kroos has played 37 matches this season, chipping in with two goals and five assists in the process. With his contract expiring at the end of the season, it is still unclear whether he will renew or hang up his boots.
