Mid-season, Zinedine Zidane’s choices during the last summer transfer window are questionable given Real Madrid’s performance in recent months.
Qualified in extremis for the knockout stages of the Champions League and badly embarked to retain his title in La Liga, the fault of two points behind theAtletico Madrid which is however three games behind, the real Madrid had a complicated first half of the season. For many analysts, the merengue club pays in particular its discretion during the last summer transfer window.
The Madrid club has indeed deprived itself of any reinforcement this summer, the only notable arrival being the return of loan from Martin Odegaard. Very prominent last season during his loan to the Real Sociedad, the Norwegian international has hardly convinced during his few starts at the start of the season and must now be content with crumbs for several weeks despite the difficulties of Federico valverde.
Hakimi or Mayoral at the party
If Zinedine Zidane wanted to keep the Norwegian, he did not hesitate to let go of many players like Gareth Bale or James Rodriguez. What necessarily deprive the tricolor world champion of solution. And Real can feed all the more regrets that some players pushed out are showing themselves to their advantage.
This is particularly the case withAchraf Hakimi, already very prominent with the Borussia Dortmund these past two seasons, and irresistible with theInter Milan since arriving in Lombardy this summer. His statistics speak for themselves with 7 goals and 5 assists. And this while Dani Carvajal has hardly shown itself to its advantage since the start of the season.
And if Gareth Bale, Tafekusa Kobo or Sergio Reguilon should not give Zinedine Zidane any regrets, it is undoubtedly otherwise Borja Mayoral, loaned toAS Rome where he posted 6 goals in 17 matches, and even Brahim diaz, useful in its role of liningAC Milan and that the Rossoneri already want to keep.
