After the mess that Real Madrid have been in this season, most people thought that they would sign some players to help them get their season back on track. However, January came and went, but Zidane opted to sign no-one and kept faith in the squad.
And it is as though they are already regretting it. Against Levante last weekend, the Blancos dropped two more points. Thankfully for them, however, even Barcelona dropped points against Espanyol and, as a result, couldn’t extend their lead over their eternal rivals.
The January window is a time when clubs rectify the gaps that they couldn’t or didn’t fill in the summer. However, Madrid chose to ignore it once again and risk feeling remorseful after the season ends. Here are three players that they will regret not signing.
The thing with Keylor Navas is that he might be a brilliant shot-stopper with cat-like ability to react to shots. However, his awareness and intelligence is something that puts his abilities under scrutiny.
For instance, the second goal against Levante would have been saved by someone like David De Gea or Kepa Arrizabalaga or Alisson. The Roma shot-stopper was heavily linked with Liverpool, but the move never materialised.
He was also linked with Real Madrid, but nothing concrete came off that either. At this point in time, Real Madrid are in desperate need of a goalkeeper and Alisson has been the best goalkeeper in Serie A this season.
