After 19 straight wins Real Madrid are absolutely cruising right now. And even one of the most extravagant clubs in the world may not be too concerned with transfers on this form.
But, we remember only too well when Barcelona were battering Real Madrid just a couple of years ago, in what seemed like a period of Catalan domination that would never end – the gap in quality between the sides was so great.
But that gap closed quickly and the same could happen if Real Madrid don’t capitalise. By that we mean that they should invest heavily while Barcelona are banned from making transfers in order to keep their arch rivals at arms length.
In this regard the British press have once more stoke the fires of speculation by suggesting that Real Madrid are still keen on the brilliant youngster Raheem Sterling, who is yet to sign a new contract at a turbulent Anfield.
The Daily Mail reports:
The Reds have made an informal offer of a five year deal worth up to £70,000 to Sterling.But a deal is yet to be agreed as Sterling weighs up his future.
The England international is one of the premier prospects in world football, with Europe’s superpowers – Real Madrid among them – watching developments over his contract situation closely.
We think it’s likely that the lad will sign a new contract at his club. At 20 years of age he has time on his side and a move to Real Madrid can wait a few years yet.
But don’t be completely surprised if the amazing winger does eventually make a big money more to Madrid.
Let’s see him in action. Real Madrid fans: good enough?
