So games are now being played really close to eachother, with Real playing saturday against Betis, today against Valladolid and on Sunday against Levante. Today’s game is a late kickoff with the game at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano starting at 9.30 PM Spanish time. Real Madrid got a boost to the squad with Hazard and Asensio back. Valladolid have a few injury-concerns at the back, with centre-backs Olivas and Fernandez, right-back Moyano and goalkeeper Masip all missing the game.
Real Madrid currently have four strikers, but only one of them is guaranteed to stay for the season, according to reports in Spain. Jovic is in talks with multiple Italian teams, and in the last 24 hours Manchester United has also emerged as a possible destination for a loan. Mayoral meanwhile is close to moving to Roma, but the negotiations have reportedly been put on hold with Jovics situation being unclear. Meanwhile nobody seems to know what will happen to Mariano. In the midst of all this, AS reports that even all four could end up staying. So…yeah.
