‘Operation Exit’ And Sign Mbappe: Real Madrid Give Details Of Transfer
The Blancos are eager to get big wages off their books, with any funds raised set to go towards prising a World Cup winner Mbappe away from PSG
Real Madrid’s plan for the summer transfer window will focus on trying to get bodies out, Goal has learned, with any funds freed up by ‘Operation Exit’ allowing for long-standing interest in Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe to be stepped up as the next deadline approaches.
The Blancos, who are famed for their ‘Galacticos’ approach to recruitment under Florentino Perez, have tightened their belts in recent years and have not invested a fee in anyone since signing Reinier in January 2020 – with David Alaba snapped up on a free this time around.
The Liga giants intend to stick with that plan in 2021 and, with long-serving captain Sergio Ramos already departed at the end of his contract, the hope is that a squad which currently includes 29 players – with loan stars Borja Mayoral and Reinier not on that list – will be trimmed considerably over the coming weeks.
