Acceleration to the Operation Exit & # 039;July 6, 2019
Two days before the start of the preseason, in this first week of July the activity in the offices of Real Madrid has been frenetic. When you return to work on Monday, Zinedine Zidane will find a template in which some players will still be missing, but quite thin with respect to the 37 players who could have arrived to start preparing.
After putting the end point to last season, the club focused on the hiring of Jovic, Hazard and Mendy (The signings of Rodrygo and Militao were closed in advance). Temporarily closed (the 'Pogba operation' is still open) that chapter on June 12, until the 20th of June the first start was not official: the transfer of Marcos Llorente to Atlético. Then, he spent a ten-day wait until this week's squeeze.
In five days of July, Madrid has closed two transfers (Kovacic to Chelsea and Raúl de Tomás to Benfica) and two other transfers (Reguilón to Sevilla and Odegaard to Real Sociedad). Neither of the two loan players have the option to purchase from their destination club and the Norwegian has only signed one year (plus another optional) pending to renew his contract with Madrid. The next one will be The O, who has already passed medical examination and signed his contract with Milan, although the agreement between clubs has not yet been made official.
The last confirmed movements, and taking for granted the mentioned departure of Theo, they leave the first staff with 31 troops, of which Zizou will take 24 players to Montreal on Tuesday. They will be joined by six Castilla players, including the Japanese Kubo, to complete a working group with 30 players.
They will not be Militao, Casemiro, Valverde, James, Vallejo, Ceballos or Mayoral. The first four have participated (or are still in competition) with their selections in the Copa América (which has prevented Militao from being presented) and the three Spaniards have been proclaimed champions of the U-21 European Championship with La Rojita. It will be necessary to see if they all rejoin. In the three weeks that the American tour will last, there must be more movements and four of those that will not be starting (Vallejo, Ceballos, James and Mayoral) they have the doors open to leave.
