I’m gonna go ahead and be honest with you guys; I really don’t have much to report today. Therefore, we’re gonna jump straight into the transfer stuff.
- The Varane move is done, as you’ve all probably heard already. Though most of us will be sad to see him leave, the man wanted a new challenge. United have also brought in more quality reinforcements in the shape of Jadon Sancho.

We have agreed a deal in principle for the transfer of @RaphaelVarane to United! ⚪️⚫️#MUFC
- Ho... Look who’s still gunning for our Norwegean gem. Arsenal still seem interested in Odegaard, probably thinking that he’s surplus to requirements here or something.
Arsenal have not given up on signing Martin Odegaard and the Real Madrid midfielder is keen on returning to Emirates Stadium this summerhttps://t.co/9oAswlgvQb— Chris Wheatley (@ChrisWheatley_) July 27, 2021
Lucas begs to differ.
I've been getting a few questions re: Odegaard and the reports from Cadena SER suggesting that he wants out and that Real Madrid would be open to sell him.— Lucas Navarrete (@LucasNavarreteM) July 27, 2021
My understanding of the situation is that Odegaard not only will stay in Madrid but he will also be an important player.
There’s also this interesting little fact:
| @jpedrerol has been correct on the future’s of Zidane, Ramos and Varane this summer. He maintains that Kylian Mbappe will join Real Madrid.— Madrid Xtra. (@MadridXtra) July 27, 2021
Personally, I still don’t think he’s coming - for now. Still, you can never write papa Flo off when it comes to transfers.
Have a great day everyone. May the madridismo be with you.
