Real Madrid 2019-2020 is already underway. The players have already started their vacations – although in the case of the internationals they will be cut for ten days to fulfill the commitment with their selections – but in the offices the rest does not exist and it is now when the three months with more work begin of the year.
Florentino Pérez, José Ángel Sánchez and Zinedine Zidane will have a daily contact to know all the news of the departures and entries in the template. The renewal plan for footballers who are key to the French started yesterday with the announcement of Kroos and will continue throughout the week. Seat the spine is nonnegotiable for Zidane, so it will be expected in this way next week to make the official announcement of the first new faces, taking into account that before the arrival of the French coach and Rodrygo were made public and Militao.
Jovic and Hazard have all the numbers to be the first two signings to be announced. In the case of the Serbian striker, the economic issue is the one that has not yet made the sale concrete. The 80 million asked by Eintracht is not willing to pay the white club, closer to a figure that does not exceed 60 kilos. Once the Bundesliga and the League are over, it is time to sit down and negotiate and finalize the transfer.
As for Hazard, until Thursday 30, after the Europa League final, no public announcement will be made. Chelsea is focused on winning the second European competition and until then there will be no moves. The Belgian will arrive in the capital of Spain for an amount that will be around 100 million euros and with one of the best salaries of the staff. With Mbappé and Neymar being a utopia, this summer's galactic will be Hazard and thus will be remunerated.
But not only highs and lows are spoken these days at the Bernabéu. A decision already taken by Zidane is to change the work plan of the preseason. Madrid already had the facilities of UCLA, in Los Angeles, closed for the pre-season stage, but the French has ruled out this option to return to Montreal, where in the summer of 2016 the great white double of the century began to be cooked, League and Champions. The facilities of the Montreal Impact, MLS franchise, left Zidane very satisfied, as well as enjoying a better climate and a calmer environment, taking into account the ruckus that always surrounds Madrid wherever it goes.
The squad will return to work on Monday July 8 and on Tuesday 9 and will fly to Canada, where it will be until the 20th. The morning of 20 to 21 will play its first match of the International Champions Cup, against Bayern, in Houston. The 23 to 24, will do in Meryland, before Arsenal, and from 26 to 27 in New Jersey, against Atlético. Then, the Audi Cup in Munich, with Tottenham as a rival in the semifinals, and finally the Bernabéu trophy, before the weekend of the 17th and 18th of August the League begins. .
