- Match Analysis
Real Madrid have made some impressive additions during the summer transfer window like Thibaut Coutois, Andriy Lunin, Vinicius Junior and Alvaro Odriozola. But they lost Cristiano Ronaldo, as he decided to leave the club after an extremely successful period with them.
The Spanish side are yet to replace the Portugal International as questions are raised over their transfer business. They have been heavily linked with the likes of Neymar and Eden Hazard but no deal went through.
Hazard will stay with Chelsea at least for this season as Premier League transfer window closed and even Maurizio Sarri told it is impossible for them to sell him as they have no option to replace him.
But European transfer window is still open until the end of the August and the Brazilian forward is still being linked with a return to Spain.
The La Liga giants have long been heavily linked with a move for the Brazil International and the speculations have been carrying on since he joined Paris Saint- Germain last summer for a world record transfer fee of €222 million.
It has been reported few times that the 26 year old is not happy with the life at Paris and could leave after spending just one season with the Ligue 1 giants. The rumours again stepped up after Ronaldo left the club for Juventus.
Neymar’s former teammate Yuri Berchiche has backed him to join Real if he decides to leave PSG.
“I see him returning but more in white than in blue and red,” Yuri told El Larguero.
“He was very happy at Barcelona. He still likes La Liga because I spoke with him about it, we have a good friendship, and he’s a fantastic person.
“If he joins Madrid I wish him the best of luck.”
