Real Madrid have gone from just over a decade ago spending more than 300 million euros in just one summer… to not making any moves in this 2020 summer market.
In a transfer window marked by the economic crisis derived from the coronavirus pandemic, only Martin Odegaard, Andriy Lunin, and Álvaro Odriozola, who returned to the side after their respective loans, strengthened their squad.
As ‘AS’ recalls, the last time that the Santiago Bernabéu side didn’t make any signings was in 1980, 40 years ago. Back then Zidane was only 8.
Madrid, therefore, have spent nothing in this market. The summer of 2016, the last one that resembles this 2020 in this context: after winning their 11th Champions League, the club made only one payment for the return of Álvaro Morata (30 million euros).
