In the face of Vinicius Jr.’s injury, Real Madrid are expected to enter into the transfer market in January, but if a report from AS is to be believed, the team from the Spanish capital is not counting on any new arrivals mostly likely because club president Florentino Perez does not like winter deals.

Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic and Galatasaray frontman Mauro Icardi are currently linked with Real Madrid, but a move for any of the two is extremely unlikely.

It is to be noted that Carlo Ancelotti only has three forwards at his disposal at the moment, namely, Brahim Diaz, Joselu, and Rodrygo. 

Regardless of this, though, Perez is not in favour of signing any new player, although it must be remembered that there have been instances in the past when the president has gone against this idea.

Challenges in Vlahovic deal

Vlahovic is thought to be one option Real Madrid were exploring. At this moment, Juventus are in a challenging financial situation, seeking income to overcome the ongoing trouble.

As far as Vlahovic is concerned, though, the team from Turin invested more than €80 million in the forward and it goes without saying that they would want to recover the amount.

Marcos Leonardo, Mauro Icardi and Santi Gimenez

Marcos Leonardo of Santos FC is the latest name to be linked with Real Madrid. So far, we have reported that several Premier League teams are vying for his acquisition, and although nothing concrete has been put forward, he continues to orbit on Madrid’s radar.

As for Icardi, he has been a great signing for Galatasaray, and considering his current run of form, he could be a coup but Real Madrid do not want to get involved in his troubled personal life.

Another name linked with the record European champions is a certain Santi Gimenez of Feyenoord, who has scored 38 goals in 60 appearances for the Dutch team.

A representative claiming to speak on his behalf has relayed Madrid’s interest in the past, despite his denial of any connection. At this moment, every news related to Gimenez is a baseless rumour.

According to a report from Defensa Central, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to promote Castilla player Mario Martin if Dani Ceballos leaves the team this summer.

Ceballos’ future at the club is currently a hot topic and If he does decide to leave, Ancelotti has already identified Martín as his replacement.

This news came amidst the announcement of Toni Kroos’s retirement that has sent shockwaves through Real Madrid. 

Now, it is suggested that Kroos’s retirement was expected to influence Ceballos’s future at the club. 

Initially, it seemed the former Arsenal midfielder would leave, and the club was even searching for a new team for him. However, with Kroos leaving, there could be a possibility that Ceballos could have a more significant role next season.

Despite this, Real Madrid are not ruling out any possibilities. They are already considering potential replacements for Ceballos and have focused on promoting Martin, who wants to fight for a place in the first team.

It is said that the club is very pleased with his performance and there is even a chance that he could receive a surprise promotion if both Kroos and Ceballos leave, though the club does not expect Ceballos to depart.

Promoting Martin, who has been a regular part of the first-team training sessions, would be a cost-effective solution, aligning with club president Florentino Perez’s goal of minimizing spending on the midfield this season. 

It is to be noted that Martin has even had some playing time with the first team in recent weeks, indicating the club’s growing trust in his abilities.

Despite Kroos’s retirement announcement, Real Madrid does not plan to enter the transfer market for a new midfielder. The club is confident in the abilities of their current six midfielders, including the continued presence of Ceballos.

However, if Ceballos decides to leave, Madrid will look to their Castilla team for a replacement, with Martin being the top candidate.
