Exclusive: Fabrizio Romano reveals one January signing Real Madrid will pursue

Real Madrid have had a habit of going after World Cup stars under Florentino Perez, most notably James Rodriguez after the 2014 edition in Brazil. Yet that is unlikely to be the case after an unusual tournament that will lead almost directly into the January transfer window.

The major question for many Real Madrid fans has been whether Los Blancos would pursue another option up front, as star striker Karim Benzema struggles to remain fit this season.

Publicly, Carlo Ancelotti has reiterated that unless someone asks to leave the club, then nobody would arrive.

Football Espana have had exclusive access to Fabrizio Romano’s column with Caught Offside prior to release, where the Italian transfer guru revealed the one player in particular that Los Blancos might pursue.

“I don’t see Real Madrid signing any player in January, if not future targets like Endrick. They stated in public and confirm in private that they want to continue with the same squad. We will see in the summer or in the future.”

The pursuit of Endrick Felipe appears to be between three teams currently, despite Xavi Hernandez’s declarations: Chelsea, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

Los Blancos have form for recruiting Brazilian starlets in the winter window. Reinier Jesus, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo Goes were all deals agreed in January ahead of summer moves. Many Madridistas will be hoping Endrick is the latest, although he will not arrive anywhere in Europe until 2024 due to being underage.

  1. I’m huge Madridista fan. But what Perez and Carlo did this summer transfer was disgusting. Selling Jovic and no sign another striker saying that Benz at 34 is the best and we don’t need anyone. And the worst one was we didn’t sign any left or right back staying with Carva, Mendy, and Vasques. Absolutely arrogant and terrible decisions.

  2. I believe Real Madrid have enough players as at now but the only thing that needs to be done is positioning. Carvajal is now weak, Eder Militao should be used as RB while Alaba and Rudiger should play at CB and as usual Mendy as LB. All other positioning is appropriate including the use of Rodrigo as false nine which needs more time and patience to pick up.

    1. How is Carvajal weak?
      Eder as RWB?

      My guy are you snorting? If yes, take another line to get your sanity back.
      RWB is the least of our problems, we need someone to score.

  3. Real Madrid have been exploring the transfer market strategically, wisely, in a concise and professional manner, but the decision of not buying a credible back up after selling Jovic is not just a mistake but carelessness and being carried away. The problem now is Madrid cannot buy no 9 because it will scare Endrich.

    1. They bet on Mbappe joining them, it wasnt their business strategy to bet on Benzema staying healthy the whole season. At least I hope it wasnt as it doesnt make any sense and is at least to say optimistic.

      Mbappes bipolarity screwed this club and he shouldnt ever be welcomed here anymore. Especially with those antics and that huge ego of his which actually is a minus to have.
