Costa was on beast mode. No chance.
Guys, just giving this kid some attention. He needs to be scouted. Imagine him not going pro.

If this kid were european or south american, big clubs would have bought him already for their youth academies. He's only 16

skip to his passses to look at this kid's vision. he's something else.

I agree he looks really good, and he has a lot of potential. But before we call him the next big thing, we also have to consider his competition. He is playing against Jamaican college teams, not the Brazilian clubs. So there is that.
Haha not calling him the next big thing, just saying he deserves to go to a good team in Europe with a good youth system, so that he can develop properly.
I have high hopes for Bale and Vinícius Jr.
Apparently Kepa will be going to Chelsea for 80 mil and Courtois will come to us for 40 mil. IMO good deal considering the absurd prices on today's transfer market and the age of Courtois. It's really sad for Navas though, he has done an amazing job for us.

Next to this we really should look for a CB and a back-up for Benz
+1
BTW, Kova will join Chelsea on loan
With no option to buy. Win win for Real and Kovacic
+1
and Chelsea :)
lol... you still make me laugh with this ur Benzema statements over the years..

what do you mean by ..."and a backup for Benz"??
That is an insult to any world class striker we ever buy.

maybe now Ronaldo is gone, benzema will be linking up Ramos. since he is the linkup man and a good for nothing forward.


We need a Striker, Period!
+1
And though it's remarkable that Benzema over nine years, except maybe his first year here, has always been picked as our main striker for the starting XI by four different coaches. If he was that bad, our coaches over the years would have asked Perez for a new striker and though they didn't. Now Lopetegui doesn't either while we for sure have the money. If he was as bad as you always suggest, he wouldn't have been at Madrid for so long.
@Drogba
Yes and Chelsea of course :D

I think it’s possible that to some extent Ronaldo’s changing playing style was cannibalizing on Benzema’s goals. Ronaldo was coming into the box last season. I think Benz’s bad form was a result of a dip in his performance but maybe this was also a contributing factor. So we will see how Benz will fare this season.
@Zizou..

It is no secret. The reason Real Madrid didn't buy any striker in that period of time was because of Ronaldo's presence. And no striker will be dat silly enough to want to compete with Ronaldo for the goal ratio and attacking spot light..

Benzema being fantastic had nothing to do with the reason we never signed a forward. He was just comfortable where he found himself; playing along side Ronaldo and leaving his team mates to do majority of the work. He has never been great or had a stand out season memorable enough to remember.

And if you want to be honest with yourself, the major reason he has lasted this long is because he was bought by Perez.. Had it been another president took over , he would have been offloaded.

Currently, Madrid is obviously trying to figure out life without Ronaldo and a panic buy is highly unnecessary, along with the price tag of players today and the vast talent we have in the squad.

If anything, I think we should keep playing with what we have till January windows.. And know where to shape the squad.

Of anything, modric not leaving us is the biggest accomplishment we have made this transfer window.

As for benzema, I won't be surprised Mayoral/Vinicius/Asensio gets more goals than him this season
@Cjayzz
I have to disagree with you on Benz not having ever been a great player. I distinctly remember he was the star of the French national team when he was still allowed to play for them while the likes of Griezmann played second fiddle to Benzema. There is no denying that Benz was a superstar striker for us, to say anything less of his overall contribution would be a disservice imo.
+1
@S2killinit

Unfortunately, I seem to remember benzema very differently for the French national team becos he carried his poor scoring form for his club to the national team and went 17 matches without netting a goal.

Are you trying to tell me you will pick benzema over Mbappe or Greizmann currently. Then you have to have a reality check.
I will not pick benzema over lacazette for France.

If you really think benzema is that world class, go and check his stats on soccerway or Wikipedia, compare with other forwards, poachers, top strikers, finishers... Ur opinion will quickly changes. His best season was his 2nd year under mourinho since then, he has been a gun with no bullet in he chamber.

I'll applaud you lots to stop fooling yourselves and call a spade a spade.. We need a better forward, especially now that Rinaldo is gone.
@Cjayzz

He scores in about 50 percent of his games, not too bad at all. The thing he has that other, more classic forwards don't is his influence in the combination play. He often gets in positions where he supports the midfield. He is one of the most important reasons our midfield is that good. Next to this he creates space for others in front of goal. In recent years in particular for Ronaldo. And you always make fun of what some call "link-up play", but you just don't seem to understand it. Benz is the perfect link between midfield and attack. He always falls back to claim the ball, Ronaldo for example never did that. If Benz just would have waited in the box all the time, he may have scored lots of goals, but the team would've scored less because there wouldn't be such a good LINK between midfield and attack. There would be less cohesion. Without Benz our forwars would get more isolated. You can check compilations of our best combination play. Almost every time Benz is involved.
What about that team display against Juve. Do we need a big money transfer this season?
these kids are super talented!
+8
Super excited for Vinícius Jr.
+2
So exciting to be back..
I was away for a whole season (personal issue)

...So right now, madrid seems like a falling giant before the seaosn even starts.
Cristiano's exit is really shocking, but honestly he is still the best in the world and unlike some players, he enjoys to challenge himself and look for new opportunities to do just that; No secret his broken relationship with Perez and the board over his salary demands and tax evasion is the major reason, but a player who has won it all in England and Spain deserves the right to seek another challenge elsewhere.
He played his best football with us and will forever remain one of the greatest in our history books.

His exit is in my hoest opinion, the best thing for madrid right now.
though it will affect our performance as i am not expecting much from the team this year, but a wide gap has been left open for someone to fill up the space..

1. it will be exciting to see who picks up the mantle and become the beast ronaldo was or close.
2. we will finally see if some players will live upto their full potential.. e,g Bale, isco...
3. i have never been excited to see a youngster ever the way i am looking out for Vincius Jr. He has the raw talent in him and will easily fit in to the squad. the most likely player to pick up ronaldo's responibilites.

The most surprising exit is Zidane's which has hurt deep down. I am still trying to understand why?? can't make any sense of it. But we will see what Lopetegui has to offer; i don't believe he is the man for the job.. but he is a decent manager.

my majr concern is we still haven't signed a defender yet and probably looking like we won't... this is my major concern considering our terrible defending last season.

i also wish we could just bring back Morata to this squad, chelsea has not done any good to this guys ability in front of goal...
+10
Though I agree with 98% of your post, I don't see why anyone needs to pick up CR's mantle. I think the TEAM as a whole needs to do that and NEVER EVER rtn to being a one player dependent like we were with CR. Any top team worth their pedigree should never be overly reliant on a lone player like Madrid and Barca are. I've always enjoyed the Madrid in the past yrs when Cr didn't play and we had the Moratas, James, Kakas, Higuains etc players that played as a team and not look to 1 for goals but each other. I'm hoping that this season with Cr gone, yes a big miss for what he could still provide that this team can reinvent itself and be a force with other weapons for defs to worry about who to double up on.


On the topic of def, what we fans have to understand is that coaches are the ones who set up the formations and tactics. The players execute those tactics and formations, under ZZ he never looked concerned with how the team defended but more how it attacked. That's why he was always called out for his lack of tactical know how. I bet under this coach this team defends way better than when ZZ was here. Spain was never a team that gave up goals like Madrid has and we will see what he does with us. Not looking for us to win outright but I am looking forward to actually seeing better team play than what we saw under ZZ.
Whatever the case, plz plz plz no tiki taka from real madrid.
As long as it’s exciting football, it’s good. Even if it’s tiki taka. Real has already said they will be playing a direct football. Real has always played exciting football so I’m not worried about that.
I have a feeling we are not getting Hazard, which is fine with me. The market has gone crazy ever since the broadcasters gave that €2billion to each premier league team. Hazard is NOT worth 200 million. Real would be wise to stay away and do what Bayern does, buy young promising players.

Although i really cant tell how things will turn out for us this season if we dont sign any heavyhitters because essentially it all will depend on how Bale will perform in scoring goals.
+1
We are left with injury prone Bale and a striker who scored under 10 goals the whole last season. I have no idea what we're doing, a world class striker and a winger are a must. We haven't spent for 4 years, time to get that check book out again. Every big club is getting stronger while we lost our best player and have no intention of even trying to fill the void.
We have an intention to buy but it seems the PL teams have no intention of selling after each one got 2 billion from broadcasters. They want to buy real’s superstars on the cheap while they quote unreasonable quotes on their own. Looking at the price difference you would think they were the ones who keep winning the champion’s league.

I don’t know how we are going to score goals either. Even last season we were short on scoring. Our key players are all one year older, and we are adopting a completely new playing style. I have no idea how it will turn out.

I hate to say it, but, I THINK part of the reason we are so unprepared for the post-Ronaldo era is because Ronaldo did not allow us to bring anyone else in that would share the stage with him in the attack. Or else THEY didn’t want to play alongside Ronaldo. An example is Mbappe before PSG bought him from Monaco. Or Salah from Roma. We had the chance to buy these players but didn’t.
Exactly, even last season we couldn't score when Ronald wasn't playing or was out of form.

I don't think Ronaldo was stopping any of the transfers. I mean we got Bale, a copy of him, who was meant to replace him over time. Nobody saw Salah having a season like this and I have a feeling he won't repeat it. Mbappe is a huge CR and Madrid fan since he was a kid, we dropped the ball on him big time when we let PSG buy him.

If only we were at least moving on Mariano I would feel better. We're going to have to spend big because nobody will sell us their star players under 100m anymore. Icardi is another plausible option I like.
Yeah. On the bright side I really look forward to see Vinicius play. I wonder what he can do. He is so young though.
@Pevjl: we didn't let PSG buy Mbappe. He chose PSG over us.
Vinicius looks like the real deal but he's tooo young to have any kind of impact for a big team imo.
Freed up Benz, healthy Bale, JLo's Isco, Asensio will together get about 30 more goals than last season I think but it's still way short of the goals we lost in Cristiano, James, Morata
Having said that I think we will win or at least put up a good fight for the La liga title and the way we'll do it is by winning games by a 1 goal margin...no more 5 or more goal games for us.
He chose PSG because he expected to be paid behind Ronaldo only. At the time Real responded that it doesnt work like that in Real Madrid. You dont just come in to Madrid and get paid more than veteran players who have been in the team since they were babies. PSG offered Mbappe 2X the wages that Real offered him. Thats why he went to PSG. Which is great for PSG, but its also why PSG failed to defeat Real with all that talent. You cant have a team mentality if your new players are treated like royalty. So when things get tough, these types of teams fall apart when every player plays for himself.

As far as goals, i dont think we have the scoring treat we need to take La Liga.
+1
Benz---Bale
Isco--Casemiro--Kroos---Modric

That's still a pretty crazy lineup with Asensio (who would be around 80 mil if you guys bought him now) and Lucas coming in as subs for Isco and Modric and Kovacic for Kroos. The only thing is you guys need a striker or a back up striker.
"Madrid have not made a major signing since James Rodriguez arrived after the 2014 World Cup and have actually made a profit on transfers through recent summers, with their most recent accounts showing a "cash balance" of €178 million -- even before Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus for €105m earlier this week."

So, that means that for the past 5 years, Madrid has not only sold more than they have bought, but also they have not taped into their overall profits in any of those seasons. If true, I expected bigger signings than the ones rumored so far. On the other hand, if this is not a 'buyer's market', then maybe Real should hold off on spending big and wait it out until bigger/better players emerge or become available?
You will not find a better player than Mbappeeeeeeeeee
yes but he is not for sale. At least not yet. Maybe down the line in 4 or 5 years, and that's only in the unlikely event that he doesn't achieve the silverware he would desire by that time. Otherwise I don't see PSG ever selling a French mega star. That boat has now sailed.

the biggest loser in all this is Neymar. I think he did a stupid thing in leaving Barca, now he is doing a stupid thing in staying in PSG. Mbappe will overshadow him there soon enough and Neymar is only getting older. Next year he will be 27 and that means his price tag is too high for any team to justify buying him for maybe 3 good seasons.
Not just Mbappe but in many games and with the PSG fans even Cavani overshadows neymar which is just fitting for his greedy move to ligue1.
Some article I read said so far in 1 year PSG sold just 60k Neymar jerseys whereas Juve sold 500k Cr7 jerseys in 1 day. Lol

Mbappe will definitely move, PSG will not be his final goal for a player so talented to play in a second rate European leage is a bit of a let down. If PSG dont sell the player himself will be making an effort to leave
PSG will probably re-evaluate their goals and ambition after their qatar world cup... i reckon they are trying to sign all these big players to bring attention to the world cup, other wise it is not sustainable in the long run as even Chelsea found out despite being in a more competitive league where ticket prices and TV/sponsorship money is much more than what PSG get
So we’ve strengthened the only area that wasn’t in turmoil, the goal keeper. Courtois has just signed a 4 year deal with us. Strange move.

Edit: now it looks like Hazard might happen as well.
When will Navas get some credit? He's been amazing for you guys. And you guys also got some teenage wunder kid for like 60 million.
^Ikr, if this dude was from Brazil, people would appreciate him more. Although his won the lot with them, nothing more for him to prove to anyone. His one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
Where did you see Hazard news?

BBC Just reported Sarri saying he wants to keep Hazard...Only problem here is we have only 20 days to sell him and buy replacement. It will be interesting transfer saga for next 20 days
I don’t get it either Navas has had some major saves for us. But I don’t think his nationality has anything to do with it, unless you mean marketability is a factor.

Look, I get it Courtois is the type of goalie that provides a sort of assurance that maybe most goalies cant. But, it’s still hard to believe we needed a change in that position. Although you have to admit, the rumored deal for Courtois may have been an opportunity not to miss (he was adamant about coming to Madrid, for only around the rumored 35 million, is a steal) and Navas is now 31years old.

@sanchez
*12 million not 60 million

@Bazinga
They keep going back and forth, I think I was looking at the one saying Real and Hazard had “agreed personal terms”
Keylor will be 32 by the end of this year and Courtois is very consistently world class (no Karius/Lloris style blunders from him) and at 26 he's still very young for such an experienced GK.

And of course the €35m is a steal.
It was basically now or never for Real. It's harsh on Navas, but who knows if he'll still be as good next year? Not everyone has the quality and physique of a Buffon to go on for ages after they turn 30.
+3
S2killinit, it's actually 45 mil euros. I thought it was 60 but its definitely not 12 lol
I had just looked it up. It said 8 million upfront and 4 in extras.
Are we talking about the same person? The young 6’3” keeper Lunin?
No, some Brazilian kid named Vinicious Junior
Oh I thought you were talking about the keeper since we were talking about Courtois. Yeah I’ve heard about Vinicius and also Rodrigo Goes.
