(Football news) The World Cup is about to reach its conclusion with only the Final and the 3rd place match remaining. Real Madrid will be playing their first match back away at Real Valladolid on 30th December. Los Blancos is the team that will have the busiest calendar at the beginning of next year. Madrid will be playing the Spanish Super Cup which will take place in January where they will face Valencia in the semi finals. The Club World Cup is reportedly going to happen in February which means that Real Madrid will be extremely busy.

Los Blancos could play as many as 15 games in 51 days before their UCL Round of 16 game against Liverpool at Anfield. The concerning part for Real Madrid fans is that despite knowing about the fixture constraint the Merengues are planning to sign no one in the winter transfer window even if there are any departures. Real Madrid have good depth in the squad but there are still a couple of areas which can be improved. Real Madrid don’t have a natural right winger as Fede Valverde, Rodrygo and Marco Asensio are better at other positions. Karim Benzema who has been injured for majority of the season doesn’t have a proper back up.

Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that the club will not make any signings in January. Real Madrid have reportedly been offered the services of Rafael Leao, Cody Gakpo and Alejandro Garanacho but the club wasn’t interested. They have signed Brazilian wonderkid Endrick but he will join in 2024. Real Madrid are 1 or 2 serious injuries away from a crisis which is a big concern. Luka Modric and Aurélien Tchouaméni have played a lot of minutes at the World Cup and they will be exhausted. There are several players in the B team who could come into the picture when needed.
