Real Madrid will resume pre-season training on July 5th, although several of their players are expected to be absent as they recover after their participation in Euro 2020. Los Blancos have already begun their preseason practices. Luca Modric and Lucas Vazquez have had their contracts renewed by the La Liga giants, while Carlo Ancelotti has taken over as manager from Zinedine Zidane.
Sergio Ramos has left Real Madrid after signing David Alaba. Los Blancos have been linked with a slew of new signings, but Ancelotti is taking his time to find the right fit. Before the start of the new season, the La Liga heavyweights are anticipated to let go of a few of its periphery players.
Let’s take a look at the most important Real Madrid transfer stories as of June 29, 2021.
Jules Kounde is not a target for Real Madrid.
According to Football Espana via El Chiringuito, Real Madrid is not interested in Jules Kounde.
With Sergio Ramos gone and Raphael Varane already on his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu, Los Blancos are set to recruit a central defender this summer.
Because the Frenchman’s current contract expires next season and he appears unlikely to sign a new one, the La Liga heavyweights intend to trade him. Jules Kounde was one of the players mentioned as a possible Varane replacement, although it appears that a trade is unlikely.
