Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are hoping to have a productive transfer window, which could see them have major implications on the market.
Barcelona, Liverpool and Real Madrid are three clubs who have been impacted by the coronavirus lockdowns and therefore, decided against signing any big players. The fundamental adopted by the clubs’ chiefs is simple- if players are made to take pay cuts, money cannot be splashed on making lucrative signings.
While that makes sense, with a significant number of sales as everyone intends to make, there’s a bleak possibility that the clubs would make marquee signings. However, the principal is that they have to get rid of players before they can sign anyone else. Diario GOL has reported a transfer domino potentially being on the cards.
Real Madrid are keen on pushing out Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez. The two attackers carry no fruition to Zinedine Zidane and his lofty squad, so their futures at the Spanish capital are dark to say the least.
Gareth Bale is absolutely determined to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu given his massive wage and the money aspect over anything, but James is likely to go for 25 million euros. Should the Welshman leave against odds as well, the club would cash-in on 80 million euros.
Zidane does have Kylian Mbappe as his primary objective but the Paris Saint-Germain winger’s signing is likely to wait until June 2021. The Frenchman however is also wanting to land Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane. It’s likely that a club and coach of such a great stature could convince the Senegal international into trying a new challenge.
Liverpool selling Mane would see them go for Barcelona frontman Ousmane Dembele. The France international has been a horror show in the Camp Nou and has not justified the sum exceeding 100 million euros that the Catalans spent on him. The Blaugrana would happily part ways with Dembele, who is tipped to find his excellent feet under Jurgen Klopp.
If they do manage to land Dembele for a supposed sum crossing 50 million euros, Barcelona would have enough cash in the bank to sanction a move for Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain. The player is desperate to return to La Liga.
Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly to show him the door but will look for a respectable offer. Should the Catalans be able to offer close to 150 million euros, they’ll certainly be able to land the Brazilian ace, who would potentially succeed Lionel Messi.
A massive transfer domino that could benefit each and every party involved could be on the cards, but the initiating and culminating parties may not be the most enthusiastic ones to carry the deals out. While Real Madrid are monitoring Mane, their absolutely objective is Mbappe, and on the other hand, it’s believed Barca want Lautaro Martinez urgently now.
Certainly there’s no secret being made about the fact that Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Ousmane Dembele could be the biggest of several exits facilitated by Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively. The point however remains that the clubs have more long-term objectives and in a pandemic situation, money is not plentiful for the foreseeable future.
