Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho is one of the elite managers who has won the Champions League with two different clubs, but he is unlikely to rest on the laurels of the past as he prepares his team for the 2011-12 season, which is extremely important for the club and for him as a manager.
The Portuguese tactician has in the past stated that the team is stronger in his second year than the first after winning the Champions League with Inter Milan in his second year with the club.
Madrid president Florentino Perez is desperate to see the club win the La Liga and the Champions League in the near future, which is the reason why Real Madrid have invested a lot of money on quality players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Fabio Coentrao and Kaka. Madrid have also parted ways with Jorge Valdano and Mourinho has higher powers this season in the transfer window.
Real Madrid's recent transfers have been done with an eye for the future as several of the new recruits could form the core of the team in the years to come. Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira, Angel di Maria, Fabio Coentrao and many others could have a bright career ahead of them at Real Madrid and should they establish a strong team chemistry, they have the capability to win trophies on a regular basis in the years to come.
Madrid have been linked with a couple of players in the transfer window while there could be some exits from the club as well because they might not get enough playing time at the club. This article is on some of the latest transfer rumors that have emerged in the media in recent weeks.
