Lots of departures on loan … and blows?
Overall, the boss of Casa Blanca is satisfied with his workforce, but does not rule out a big blow. “We have a big team. Another galactic? Real are always looking to have the best. But we have a great team, with a lot of young people ”, he explained, then answering the inevitable question about Kylian Mbappé (22 years old, Paris SG), announced on the radar of the Madrid team for many months now. “I’m not talking about players who are not at Real Madrid”, he began before refining his position.
“I know what the socios want. They want us to have the best. But sometimes they get to 18 and you have to wait. Everyone knows what my policy is. That the best play here and that we mix with young people. The teams must renew themselves and we are in the midst of this process. I don’t want to talk about players who are not here, because it is a lack of respect. People trust me. What the socios and I think are the best will come. Mbappé is one of the best, but he is not at Real Madrid ”, he blurted out, rather evasive.
The strong man of the residents of the Santiago Bernabeu then took stock of some hot issues within his group. Starting with the future of Raphaël Varane, at the end of his contract in June 2022. “I don’t know what’s going on. We will see when he returns from the Euro. He has one year of contract left. We haven’t spoken to him. Transfers and extensions are made after the Euro. We have not received any offers for him. He’s been here for many years and he’s always done very well. If he wants to leave, he will say so and if he wants to stay, he will say so too “, he said, seeming open to all options.
Marcelo stays, what about Varane and Bale?
Pérez then assured that Marcelo (33), pointed out and announced on the departure one year from the end of his lease, would stay next season. “Yes, he will continue as captain. He deserved it. I love them all. It’s hard to find a left side like Marcelo. With his predecessor (Roberto Carlos), I believe they are the two best in history in this position. I can only give him compliments », he said, then evoking the thorny issue of Gareth Bale (31), also at the end of the lease in June 2022.
“He’s a great player. I remember the finals he won us. In my opinion, he is one of the great players in Europe. Everyone is as they are, they have their own personality. My last memory is in Kiev, his return and his goal. And then he puts on another one. And then there is his head in Lisbon. This crazy race against FC Barcelona in Valencia in the Copa del Rey. Would I like him to stay? I love them all”, he concluded. There are therefore many projects and the summer for Florentino Pérez and Real Madrid promises to be very busy.
