Odegaard, Asensio and Hazard are the only safe ‘signings’

first_imgRegarding Asensio and Hazard, in this new scenario that arises and if it were impossible to sign a forward of guarantees (Haaland type), it goes back to the idea of ​​last season. “Hazard and Asensio will contribute the goals that were lost with Cristiano’s departure.” The injuries of the two footballers have prevented seeing if it was a crazy idea. Now, circumstances compel. Based on the figures, Mallorcan and Belgian added 28 goals in 2017-18 (11 and 17 respectively) and 27 goals in 2018-19 (six Asensio, 21 Hazard). The numbers come out, also taking into account the increase in Benzema’s scoring ability after Cristiano’s departure. At this point of uncertainty due to the coronavirus crisis, no fixed date for soccer to resume and waiting for what the Ministry of Health can say about it, the only thing that is clear In Madrid’s offices regarding the preparation of the next season’s squad, the return to the playing fields of Asensio (24 years old) and Hazard (29) and the return of the loan of Odegaard (21). The three will be the three proper names on which Madrid will be based next season.Today in the club they are beginning to realize that this summer there may be no noticeable transfers in the world of soccer. Without the money from televisions and the box office in stadiums, the industry is technically bankrupt. The consequences of this crisis in the world of football are still unknown, and at least in Madrid they have the good news of those three names that are put on the table. There are few more certainties in Madrid next season, than He must decide more things like whether Areola is still in goal or Lunin returns, if he attends to the request of the Borussia to stay with Achraf and pull Reguilón or if he sells to a Ceballos that has little to do with Zidane even knowing that the market will be devalued. The only sure thing is that, today, a future of skinny cows and many difficulties is in sight.center_img On the other hand, Odegaard (21 years old) must be the main name of the project in terms of generating illusion. The Norwegian was being one of the interrupted championship footballers, protagonist of the main attack statistics. Odegaard participates in 62% of Real’s plays that end in a goal. The transfer to the Real that has been signed is only for one year although verbally the possibility was left open for another one. But Madrid has made the decision to recruit him. He will be important in the project because he is the man called to to supply the benefits of a Modric (34 years old) who is already at the end of his career.last_img read more
