Well, Madrid is one of the four clubs in La Liga not to make a signing so far. But that is all about to change, with Modric reportedly moving to the Spanish capital. He is said to be costing 40million, but AVB wants Carvalho as a part of his staff. That could see, the price reduced to 35million.
I hope Mou knows what he's doing. 35 million to warm a bench? Hope not. Moreover, don't know who's going to be in starting XI on a consistent basis. Feel sad for the Turkish international, Nuri Sahin who's making a comeback after a long injury.
Also, as Castilla(Real Madrid B) made the promotion to Segunda A(Second Div), the Spanish U19 right back, Dani Carvajal has caught the eyes of the Germans, Bayer Levurkusen. He's moving for a fee of 5 million. West Ham are also interested in one of the other Castilla players. Jesé Rodríguez, who is currently playing in the Euro U19 for the Spanish is the top scorer so far. Also, another impressive talent, Morata is promoted to the first team.
The draws has been made for the next season fixtures. El Clasico will be sometime in October whereas the mini El Clasico, Madrid B vs Barcelona B is the second game in the Second Division. Castilla's first game is against the Yellow Submarines, Villareal, who got relegated last season.
