Karim Benzema is in sensational form. He is playing so well that everyone talks about Ballon d’Or 2023 to be given to the French striker.


Los Blancos will keep every option open

Madrid will keep all options open until the last moment. The work with the players likely to be signed is already done. This is the case of Tchouaméni, with whom a preferential option was agreed a few weeks ago. He is not the only “yes” that Madrid has. The case of Haaland (21) is similar. If the white club gets involved in the operation, its arrival is assured. However, for obvious budgetary reasons, the entity’s roadmap only contemplates one caliber operation in addition to Mbappé’s. Therefore, either he decides to sign Tchouaméni or the ships are burned by Haaland. But the good moment of Benzema, who still has at least two years left at the best level, greatly cools the prospects with the Norwegian.


Tchouameni and Haaland still on the radar of Madrid

Tchouameni and Haaland are in very similar situations. Both have made the decision to leave their respective teams this summer despite having long-term contracts. But if Monaco is a selling club and assumes that it is time to fill their pockets with Tchouaméni, Borussia is tied by Haaland’s hands by virtue of the agreement reached with his representative, Mino Raiola, to “facilitate” his departure in the summer of 2022. He is forced to let him go for an amount that will be around 75 million, although he is still fighting for a path that seems increasingly complicated,that Haaland stay one or two more seasons there matching the salary paid by Real Madrid or City with the help of various sponsors (including Puma) and leaving his departure already signed (and not agreed) for the future. It seems like an almost impossible option, even more so considering the delicate state of health of Mino Raiola, who wants to resolve the future of the main pearl he has in his portfolio.
