With these actors, it is worth remembering the scenes that were lived in the final stretch of the first stage of Zidane on the bench of the Bernabéu. Madrid faced 2018 in a sea of doubts, very out of the leadership in the League and eliminated in the Copa del Rey by Leganés, who threw him after conquering the Bernabéu (1-2) in the quarterfinals. Then the club was convinced to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga, still in Athletic, by its clause, of only 20 million; Zizou refused and in August, after renovation, Chelsea signed the goalkeeper paying 80 million That had happened to cost. Real Madrid faces the month much more pending of the lawn than of the offices. What the team achieves in this demanding January costs six games and the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia will condition its course until the end of the season, so the focus is on the sports section. At market level there will be little movement: As AS has learned, except for unexpected turn of events, the club and Zidane have decided not to sign. Yes, they intend to start two players now in the form of assignment: Mariano and Brahim.The current situation is very similar to that experienced in summer. Zidane doesn’t want anyone but Pogba, as this newspaper reported on the 28th, but the coach is aware that The club is not in the job of satisfying that desire because Manchester United doesn’t even put a price on its star. In any case, yours would be a summer megaoperation. The Uruguayan Valverde explosion (21 years) has been key at this point. Nor is it that Florentino Pérez is very likely to look out the winter window. Between his two terms he has moved seven times in this market, investing only 48.8 million euros. The last incorporation was in 2018, Brahim, after there were no reinforcements in 2016 and 2017.There is harmony between Zidane and the clubZizou also doesn’t have much faith in winter shopping. Trust your staff, a message that is responsible for repeating and enunciating each press conference, and has not asked for news for the second half of the season. Not without some irregularity, the team has responded as expected when starting the course. That incident caused the first strains in the good relationship of Florentino and Zidane, who packed in May. The club considered that Kepa’s was a strategic signing that was ruled out by the coach’s ‘no’, who saw his great commitment to his children reinforced by raising a Thirteenth in Kiev in which few believed months before. Now there will be no discrepancy.
