Real Madrid lived a difficult period in the transfer market after the Corona pandemic, so that the team did not make any deal in the summer of 2020-2021 for the first time in 40 years, but it seems that things will change with the start of the 2022 transfers.
Days before the official start of the summer transfer period 2022, Real Madrid managed to sign Frenchman Aurelian Chawamini from Monaco, in a deal whose total value may exceed the 100 million euro barrier.
In order to solve the defensive crisis that the Italian Carlo Ancelotti suffered in the 2021-22 season, Real Madrid signed a free contract with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger
Although Real Madrid continued its attempts to bring in Kylian Mbappe until last May, the player blew up a resounding surprise, and decided to continue in Paris Saint-Germain until 2025, to deal a fatal blow to the royal club’s hopes of including him.
After signing Chuamini and Rudiger, it seems that Real Madrid has stopped looking for new players, but this may change in the event of success in obtaining an ideal opportunity to include a good player at an appropriate value.
It is likely that the Royal Club will continue to search for elements to develop the team in order to contract with it in the summer of 2022, or perhaps plan more for the future.

Real Madrid and Kroos are negotiating the retirement of the German
According to Sergio Santos, a journalist with the Spanish sports platform “Relevo”, German Toni Kroos wants to leave the football field from the big door, stressing that the option to retire permanently in 2023 with the end of his contract with Real Madrid is on the German table.
Santos stressed that the matter depends on his physical condition in the first place, noting that Real Madrid, in turn, decides the matter with his decision.
The Royal Club was informed by the German that it was justified to extend his contract for an additional year, but at the moment they consider this difficult and that it is something that the German should prove his worth on the field.
Santos confirms Real Madrid’s confidence in the possibility of Kroos reaching this level, which may make them change their convictions about a new contract for him at the club.
