Real Madrid legend Michel Salgado, revealed that Los Blancos will actually go after one of two high profile targets during the next summer transfer window.Not making any giant moves during the last summer transfer window, doesn’t mean that Real Madrid won’t go after one of the biggest targets next summer and Michel Salgado seems to have some privileged information he just shared. The former Los Blancos full-back and one of the club’s legends, keeps in contact with president Florentino Perez and he expressed his confidence on the club going after one of three big targets for next season. In the last month, there had been reports of Florentino Perez saving over €300 million to sign either one or two players that could replace Cristiano Ronaldo. The president attempted to get Neymar as hard as he could, but Paris Saint-Germain refused to let the Brazilian leave the club and they could never strike the deal Perez wanted. But after the World Cup that the star had with his national team, Florentino’s urge to sign him diminished and he opted to cool down all the transfer talks with the player for now because he is playing the long game for next summer. Perez’s intentions became clear not long ago, when there was a report of him asking for Kylian Mbappé for the near future. There is also another target that Florentino put his eye on last summer, which was Belgian winger Eden Hazard.Extrêmement fier et heureux de pouvoir faire partie cette équipe 🙏🏽 Merci d’avoir voté pour moi #TheBestFifaAwards pic.twitter.com/5YCgqLlHrY— Kylian Mbappé (@KMbappe) September 24, 2018The Chelsea player flirted hard with Real Madrid before the World Cup and he even stated publicly that he wanted to play for Los Blancos, but Hazard was more of a Zinedine Zidane obsession and Florentino backed down from the deal after the French manager left the club. If ‘Zizou’ had remained in Real Madrid, Eden would be wearing white today and probably wearing the number ‘7’ shirt, but for some reason this didn’t happen. So after many failed attempts that Florentino made to get that Ronaldo replacement, the club’s president decided to be patient and save his money for next summer when the market opens again. Those three targets remain a priority with Kylian Mbappé having more pull than the other two, but Perez will go after the one that becomes more accessible for the club’s economy and pretensions. Florentino’s days of spending too much for a top player seem long gone, but he might still do something crazy for a player who could potentially become a legend like the French star. It was precisely this Monday when this new information from Michel Salgado emerged, he claims to have privileged information about Real Madrid’s next market move and he didn’t waste time to divulge it in public.#FIFAFootballAwards Michel Salgado speaking on emerging talents. pic.twitter.com/8JY0wPd7qsZidane hails ‘quality’ James Rodriguez after Real Madrid’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane reserved special praise for James Rodriguez after his starring role in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Levante.— ACLSports (@acl_sports) September 24, 2018The former Real Madrid full-back claims that Real Madrid will for sure go after one of the best players in the world who are in the club’s orbit bit he didn’t disclose who this player is. The options are pretty clear and specific, Salgado spoke directly to Sports Mole about this possibility and confirmed that the transfer is happening for sure: “Everybody was talking about it. I think the big signing this year, the main change, was the manager [Zinedine] Zidane [leaving]. It was another surprise as well. Our manager Zidane leaving after winning three Champions Leagues back to back, so it was a complicated summer for us. We went and signed the national manager. We’re going to win more possession, team football, to try to score goals in a different way because we don’t have a scorer like Cristiano Ronaldo and it’s very difficult to find something in the market like that right now. Neymar and Mbappe are both at PSG so it’s difficult to take them, but I know the president and I know that something’s gonna happen in the next transfer window or in the summer. For sure I know Real Madrid are going to sign a big, big name,” said Salgado.Michel Salgado#TheBest#Spain pic.twitter.com/piq68vRSwl— بدر الحمد (@BaderAlHamad5) September 24, 2018Which of the three targets do you think Florentino will sign next summer?
