BREAKING NEWS: according to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid suffered their first significant loss of the January transfer window. Los Blancos are heading into what could prove to be a busier transfer window than initially planned. Real Madrid’s aspirations to recruit highly rated center-back as a replacement due to injury seem to have been shattered.

It seems that Real Madrid's hopes of acquiring Robert Renan to replace an injured player have been crushed.


Real Madrid finds themselves on the brink of a potentially busier transfer window than initially anticipated. Despite the longstanding message of refraining from winter signings, recent events have prompted a shift in plans. December has dealt a harsh blow to the Spanish powerhouse, with both David Alaba and Eder Militao sidelined due to ACL injuries. This setback has left Carlo Ancelotti’s squad notably short on center-back options. Surprisingly extending his contract, Ancelotti has acknowledged the urgent need for quick fixes and has directed his recruitment team to actively seek immediate solutions.

One potential solution in their sights has been Robert Renan, a highly-regarded center-back currently honing his skills at Zenit in Russia. However, indications suggest that Renan’s future doesn’t involve a move to the Spanish capital.

Reportedly, the 20-year-old is on the verge of making a return to Brazil, slipping away from Real Madrid’s grasp. Renan seems close to securing a deal with Internacional for the upcoming 2024 Serie A season. AS reports that only a few administrative formalities stand between St. Petersburg and Porto Alegre to finalize the agreement.

Renan’s coveted left-footed abilities have made him a sought-after asset. Both Arsenal and Chelsea engaged in a tug-of-war for his signature previously, though he ultimately joined Zenit for €10 million. Recognizing the complexities involved in dealing with Russian clubs, Real Madrid seeks to enhance his value by sending him out on loan before potentially selling him, likely eyeing a move to the Premier League. This move aims to maximize Renan’s potential value, given the inherent challenges in conducting business with Russian sides.
