David De Gea is believed to be the best goal keeper and he is currently at Manchester United. As much as he’s current manager Jose Mourinho remains adamant of De Gea’s departure the player’s contract is almost coming to an end in the next season. It is also good to note that he comes from Spain he would be more contented to play from his home country as well as the Spain International team. As many fans believe that it is only a matter of time before he joins Real Madrid! Which player can turn down that offer from a very big club with the most of the greatest players of all time!
Real Madrid latest transfer news on other players includes Gareth Bale whose form has drastically dropped since joining that side. He has been out of form for a very long time and has struggled in La Liga this can also be blamed on the injuries that he has had over time and he is no longer part of Zidane’s plans. However Zinedine has recently denied to have had issues with the Welsh star as he was recently on the substitutes bench as the team played against Athletic Club on Wednesday 18th April night. He is expected to go back to the English Premier League with various big clubs linked to him. These teams are Tottenham his former club, Manchester United and Arsenal football club are said to have made a surprising move.

What we have learned about Real Madrid transfer news for Neymar is that the Brazilian is said to have given conditions in order for him to join the Spanish side. However it is still not clear whether there is room for Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar at Santiago Bernabeu, can Neymar fit in Madrid? Having played for the team’s rival Barcelona. The only problem with this potential transfer is the small matter of wages. Cristiano earns £18m (€21m) net and that's soon to increase to £22m (€25m) with bonuses. Neymar earns a staggering £31m (€35m) net at PSG, so Real Madrid will need to sort that out, perhaps by bringing Ronaldo's wages up to "26m (€30m) and asking Neymar to reduce his wage It remains to be seen if they work that out, but at this stage we have to take note of PSG's stance that Neymar, who has no buy-out clause, will not be leaving the Parc des Princes. Neymar has continued to impress at his current team Paris Saint Germain with 19 goals and 13 assists however he has an injury ( sprained ankle ) he is expected to be back is still not determined.
Karim Benzema is one of the great players at Real Madrid he plays as a striker mostly in the first team. Benzema however he has been faced with links with other clubs. In the previous seasons he has been linked with Arsenal football club which did not amount to anything substantial. Their manager Zidane continues to emphasize that Benzema is doing great though he does seem to be in average and inconsistent form of late. The real Madrid fans are said to be giving Karim Benzema 30, a hard time for much of the season but he seems to take the jeers positively he has been at the Santiago Bernabeu for nine years but the forward is currently enduring a lean campaign in front of goal.
The French striker has managed just nine goals in all competitions for the European and La Liga champions, including only five in the league, his worst scoring season since his debut campaign at the club. He is likely to go to one of the top teams in the Premier League - Man United, Man City or Chelsea and mostly Liverpool this is because Arsenal does have many strikers at the moment after recently signing 28 year old Pierre Aubameyang from Borussia Dortumund. Benzema boasts terrific technique and natural flair to go with the qualities of a target man. He can play with his back to goal and also loves to drift to the left. His fluid movement and creative temperament dovetail well with wide forwards Cristiano Ronaldo which could really help him at Anfield and play alongside the great Salah and Sadio Mane. We do hope that he gets the strength to get back to his good form in the next season or even the 2018 World Cup may revive the old Benzema.
Some of Real Madrid transfer news done deals are Cristiano Ronaldo who joined from Manchester United in 2009 and has continued to help the team win league titles, home cups as well as the prestigious Champions League. He is said to be the top scorer of the team over the years. He has given confidence to his teammates so much that the best eleven players as considered by FIFA and based on performance during the season show that most are Real Madrid’s players such as Sergio Ramos, Isco and Marcelo. Other transfer done deals include Gareth Bale from Tottenham Hotspur however he has not been able to find his position in the team, but this does not make Gareth a worse player, his luck is probably not in Madrid. Another of Real Madrid transfer done deal is 20 year old Theo Hernandez previously of Atletico Madrid however he is yet to set his mark in the team and should be given time for him to grow and adapt to the team. Luka Modric joined Real Madrid in 2012 from Tottenham Hotspur he has been successful in the team and he is loved by his fans. The 32 year old Croatian is a midfielder and in the Primera Division have 1 goal and 5 assists. He has been able to make it to the first team which makes him a great player. We continue wishing him well as he continues with his career. Other players that have also joined Real Madrid are Isco from Valencia in 2013, Toni Kroos from Bayern Munchen in 2014 this was triggered by Germany his home team having won the world cup and last but not least there is Lucas Vazquez who joined Real Madrid from Espanyol in 2015. Real Madrid is however going to make big signings this summer transfer market after struggling in this season. Hala Madrid!
Real Madrid transfer news in January mainly evolved around Neymar however this did not amount to anything one of the reasons being because Neymar had just joined Paris Saint Germain at the beginning of the season. This was seen as an ambitious move by Real Madrid for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is became a distinct possibility. He was a Real Madrid transfer target and reports in Spain said a deal could only be done in later on in the summer to bring him to the Bernabeu a year after he left Barcelona. Other transfer news was based on set to bid €150 million plus Gareth Bale to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane, according to Sport .Los Blancos value Bale at around €50m, meaning their total bid would be somewhere close to €200m. They could face competition from Manchester United for the England striker, however, with the Red Devils keen to bolster their own forward line. However this did not amount to a deal but the summer transfer season is around the corner.
Harry Kane has had so much success in the last previous seasons, he also show cased his prowess when they played against Real Madrid where they came top of the table in the Champions’ League group stage. If he is able to perform at Santiago Bernabeu this will automatically make him among the greatest players in football. Only at 24, this guy is doing so well in this season alone he has 26 goals and 2 assists regardless of the fact that he experienced an injury that ruled him out a couple of weeks. This could be a very huge boost for Real Madrid should the deal go through. Real Madrid was not able to make any signings in the winter transfer however it is reported that they will raid some of the very best English Premier League players come summer. We really cannot wait!
Real Madrid breaking transfer news is that Real Madrid has been forced to bring an end to negotiations with Brazilian side Fluminense over the transfer of attacker Ramon de Araujo Siqueira after the 19 year old failed his medical. Medicals are taken to ensure that the player is fit to play. In this case it seems that the 19 year old had a knee injury and this has led to postponement as he has to return to Brazil to have the knee examined. He was set to join Real Madrid B, he will still hope to follow in the footsteps of current Los Blancos star Marcelo. We do wish him a fast recovery and hope to see him in Real Madrid. He could be the next big name who knows?
Eden Hazard currently a Chelsea football player has been linked to moving away from his club having performed really well with winning two league titles in three years under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte. Real Madrid transfer news for Hazard is that Zinedine Zidane would be happy to have him at his side however this will only be possible if Gareth Bale leaves the team in summer. Their interest seems to have cooled down after poor showings by Hazard in Europe. If Madrid does move for Hazard they are unlikely to pay the €100million price tag mentioned when they showed interest in him before the turn of the year, when their season was in disarray and supporters were calling for a raft of new changes in 2018. Hazard has 12 goals and 3 assists this is lower in as compared to the previous season where he had 16 goals and 5 assists in the premier league. He has a great impact on the field and his presence gives confidence to other players. He is a likable player and we can only wish him the very best and if there are greener pastures for him, why should he not leave in order to shine even more? Go Hazard!
There is need to have some defenders brought to the team. This is because Real Madrid has been conceding more goals lately. The figures do indicate that they have conceded 36 goals and when compared to their rivals Barcelona and Atletico Madrid they seem to be having a problem as each have conceded 19 and 18 goals. This brings us to Real Madrid transfer news on defenders, the team is said to be interested in signing in Chelsea’s defender 27 year old Marcos Alonso who not only defends but is also a good goal scorer once in a while. Bringing in the defender will strengthen the defense and may benefit the team much more. The defender made through the youth ranks in Spain before leaving them to Bolton and the return of Alonso may be a sensational move. It is good to remember that Danilo, a defender signed earlier on to Manchester City and may be this could have caused Real Madrid the 36 goals.
Some of the latest Real Madrid transfer news updates are that Zinedine Zidane is really considering to keep Isco despite the Argentinian lacking game time and Manchester City are likely to keep him.

Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are said to have also showed interest in the 25 year old midfielder. Bayern Munich striker Lewandoski 29 year old is said to be willing to force a move to Real Madrid, we can only wait to see whether it will be a success for him!
Some of the expected Real Madrid transfer news this summer will be the signing of Eden Hazard or the sensational Mohammed Salah of Liverpool, Harry Kane could also be on his way to the team. Real Madrid is expected to concentrate so much more on the English Premier League players since they are believed to be better in terms of their performance. I hope you know that the English Premier League is thought to be the toughest competitive league.
Gareth Bale could return to his previous team Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester United and maybe his good days will be back at Wembley. Manchester United fans will be sad if David De Gea moves to Real Madrid in summer he has been great for them saved the team on numerous occasions most notably against Arsenal 3-1 win this season.
