Real Madrid is not expected to make any transfers in the January transfer window. There have been plenty of question marks raised at the club after last night’s defeat, but despite that – the club are reluctant to make any reinforcements in January.
According to Marca, alarm bells have been raised at Real Madrid after the defeat against Atletico Madrid and the way the coach acted and how the team responded on the pitch.
At the club, they are genuinely worried about how far this team can go and are aware of the shortcomings in the current squad. In the transfer market, they think they have done a good job and built a competitive squad, but after injuries to Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, Dani Carvajal and Vinicius – everything has changed.
The club are currently operating between anger and thought to find solutions to improve the squad, but first they are waiting for Carlo Ancelotti and the squad’s reaction to the defeat – as they believe this squad can offer more.
Despite all this, Marca assures that Real Madrid are not even thinking about entering the market in January, despite only having one central striker.
While building this squad, the club is worried about the decisions Carlo Ancelotti made against Atletico.
As mentioned above, at the moment the management are awaiting feedback from the coach and players – before deciding anything else.
It cannot be said that the board are not at fault either, as they refused to replace Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio throughout the summer when it was clear that the team needed a striker. It remains to be seen how Real Madrid will perform from now on, with the first test coming on Wednesday against Las Palmas.
