Florentino Perez gives the green light to the signing of the Dutch right-back
Dani Carvajal is a key player for Real Madrid, one of the best right-backs in the world. The Spanish player has shown his worth over the years he has defended the Real Madrid shirt, providing countless titles for the club he loves.
However, Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid, has given the green light to an option that puts Carvajal’s future at the club in doubt, forcing the player to prove his worth once again to the team to which he has given everything and more during the campaigns he has played with the club.
The future of Real Madrid
Real Madrid has set its sights on Jeremie Frimpong, a 23-year-old Dutch player who is currently playing for Bayern Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. The right-back has shown his worth at his team led by Xabi Alonso, and Madrid sees his arrival with good eyes.
This signing continues the constant squad renewal that Real Madrid has had in recent years, but above all it adds pressure to Carvajal, who will have to compete for the starting spot against a young player who shows his worth game after game and will demand him to bring out his most competitive side.
It should be remembered that Carvajal is 31 years old, so renewing the right-back was becoming a priority every season. Bringing in Frimpong for €30 million is a difficult offer to reject, especially when compared to the price of other players wanted by Real Madrid for this position, whose price is very high.
The constant renewal
Signing Frimpong would be a success for Real Madrid, not only for renewing the right-back but also for the competitiveness that would be added with a player like him, forcing Dani Carvajal to work hard to maintain his position and providing a certain degree of competitiveness to a position completely dominated by the Spaniard for several years now.
The price is also what makes this signing so appealing, being able to renew the team and obtain a quality reinforcement for a not at all stratospheric amount. The arrival of Frimpong is getting closer and closer, which could take place in the summer of 2024. Now we just have to wait and see if the signing of the Dutch gem is finalized or if Real Madrid decides to keep looking for options in other regions of the world.
