Twelve Real Madrid players are in FIFA limbo on 30-J

first_imgIt was something that had been disturbing clubs, footballers and agents, and that Emilio García Silvero, legal director of FIFA, has highlighted more. “FIFA cannot extend contracts beyond June 30, but the transfer windows are not going to be the same and players will not be able to be registered. The market does not open on July 1 “, he said in Game Time. García Silvero gave more details, again not very reassuring due to the restrictions of the regulations: “If a loan ends on June 30, the player should theoretically return to his club but the enrollment window would not be open and the record would not be processed.” FIFA is recommending extensions to end the season, but cannot guarantee that this will be done: It will depend, in addition to the will of those involved, on the labor regulations of each country. Of course, if the contractual extensions were not given, the footballers could not be enrolled in another team.Future plans: sales, transfers …In the worst case scenario, 12 Madrid footballers would stay in no man’s land, a hypothesis everyone involved believes will not occur. They hope that some solution will be found to avoid this extreme. Areola, who wants to continue, should return to PSG. Luca Zidane and Borja Mayoral, currently on loan at Racing and Levante, they end their relationship with Real Madrid and, as the movements have not started, they would have no token. Odriozola would return from Bayern, as Achraf from Dortmund after two courses, Vallejo from Granada, Reguilón from Sevilla, Ceballos from Arsenal, Odegaard de la Real, Kubo from Mallorca and Óscar Rodríguez, two seasons later, from Leganés.When normality returns, for the majority, a definitive sale or a new assignment will be sought. Achraf and Odegaard, If they see it convenient, they have a place in 2020-21. Lunin, also, it has many options of being the second goalkeeper. AND Kubo, As he confessed this Sunday in AS, he sees himself with options and potential to follow that path. The rest is between very complicated and impossible. The coronavirus, like society in general, is going to change the world of soccer. What is still far from being known is how much and how. One of the problems derived from this complex situation is what will happen to the transferred or those who end their contract on June 30, with 12 cases in Real Madrid: Luca Zidane, Lunin, Odriozola, Achraf, Vallejo, Reguilón, Ceballos, Odegaard, Take Kubo, Óscar Rodríguez, Borja Mayoral and Areola. AS has told that in Spain the parties have begun to look for a solution with enlargement, but, as it usually happens with the RFEF, LaLiga and the AFE involved, it will not be easy. last_img read more
