The display of the Real Sociedad midfielder at the Santiago Bernabéu has convinced Florentino Pérez and the white team’s coaches
It was a matter of time before the Real Madrid put my eyes on zubimendi. The Real Sociedad midfielder had a match that is not forgotten, precisely at the Santiago Bernabéu and under the watchful eye of Florentino Pérez. An objective for FC Barcelona that is now also for Real Madrid.
Florentino Pérez has been completely convinced that Zubimendi can be an important signing for Real Madrid. They could soon lose two of their most valuable pieces in the midfield, such as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. In addition, the renewal of FC Barcelona post Busquets also goes through his boots.
Real Madrid goes for Zubimendi
At Real Madrid they would be willing to make a top offer for Zubimendi as soon as possible. They know that both Arsenal and FC Barcelona have him in mind for the summer and that Enzo’s signing for Chelsea decreases the chances of finding a really good midfielder.
Zubimendi is a footballer of immense quality and he plays better every day, so Real Madrid would also like to have all that potential. At 23 years old, he has a lot of projection and can continue to grow until he is one of the most prominent in LaLiga Santander, a type of player that Florentino Pérez likes a lot.
The FC Barcelona in head
For FC Barcelona it is the ideal replacement for Sergio Busquets and one of the express wishes of Mr. Xavi Hernández. Joan Laporta wants to win the fight and take over the player, but it is a million-dollar operation that could be complicated by the economic crisis they are going through.
We will have to wait for what can happen with the future of Zubimendi, who will be the reason for the fight between Real Madrid and the Catalans. Just in case, Real Sociedad has him on a tight leash, after renewing the player until 2027 with a clause of 60 million euros. Double has been paid for Enzo, but that is another story.
