Real Madrid are already beginning to realise that the summer of 2022 will be decisive in terms of transfers, as the club, with players coming to the end of their contracts, will free up a large amount of money in wages.
In a market still affected by the economic effects of the coronavirus, Real Madrid are acting very carefully and patiently in terms of bringing in new players.
In fact, Real Madrid are more focused on trying to sell some of the players they do not have for the 2021-22 season. However, the unwillingness of some of these players to leave the Santiago Bernabéu and their high salaries make it very difficult to find a new destination for them.
That is why, as ‘AS’ reports, Real Madrid are beginning to consider that the big year to undertake any major operation will be 2022. And the fact is that next summer many of the players that ‘Los Blancos’ want to place on the market finish their contracts. Among them are names such as Bale, Marcelo and Isco.
With the departure of these three players, Real Madrid would save up to 60 million in wages. A figure that could increase given the doubts as to whether Modric will continue for another year or the unknown quantity of Varane, who is already close to leaving this summer.
With this, Real Madrid’s salary deficit would be very large and, in addition to the amount that would be destined only for transfers, everything would point towards the arrival of one or two stars to the team’s project.
