The winter transfer windows are very near at hand and as usual, rumors have begun to spread regarding the players likely to come in and out of Real Madrid. Some of the players that have been mentioned so far include Edin Dzecko, Fernando Llorente, Javier Pastore, Emmanuel Adebayor, and a few others.
These rumors have intensified mainly because of the latest injury to Argentinian striker, Gonzalo Higuain and the under performing French man, Karim Benzema.
In reality, Real Madrid does not need signings for the rest of the season. As of now, the team has 25 squad members which is the maximum required in the Spanish League. This invariably means that for one person to come in, another has to leave, hence taking this club a few steps backward after having developed well this season.
At the beginning of the season, reports revealed that Jose Mourinho requested for a striker, but the administration refused him. Those reports had died down after Jose Mourinho said that Real Madrid will not be active in the winter transfer market, meaning everybody on the team has at least one year to prove they deserve to wear the white outfit.
However, after the match on the 29th of November, president Florentino Perez announced that the club will be in search of a central midfielder and a striker in January.
His announcement came as a shock to me because, even thought it doesn't seem like it, this team has something good going on, and buying a new player at the expense of one of the team's players will be a major step backward.
Here are a few reasons why Real Madrid are better off without a new player.
