Real Madrid’s transfer policy set to get boost as they eye ‘transfer wizard’ Monchi

Published

on

Real Madrid’s President Florentino Perez is considering a deal to bring Sevilla’s Sporting Wizard, and the man they call ‘transfer wizard’, Ramon Rodriguez Verdejo, commonly known as Monchi, confirmed the Spanish publication Marca. With the Presidential electoral process at Los Blancos all set to whir into motion at the end of the campaign, Perez is targeting retaining his seat of honour till 2021 and believes that the capture of the most wanted Sporting Director in football will do the trick.

Monchi has been at the heart of the revival at Sevilla, where he has taken his hometown club (for whom he played 85 times as goalkeeper between ‘90 -‘99) from mid-table mediocrity to currently challenging at the very top of La Liga, while also establishing them as giants in European football (they’ve won the most nos. of Europa Leagues/UEFA Cups in history – with 5)As sporting director, he earned his nickname of  transfer wizard’ by getting in some of the best signings in Europe this past decade.

He been responsible for the signing of a number of young footballers who later became superstars… like Frederic Kanoute, Renato, Luis Fabiano, Dani Alves, Adriano,Ivan Rakitic, Kevin Gameiro and Geoffrey Kondogbia. Recently he signed up Steven N’Zonzi as well as the not-in-form pair of Stevan Jovetic and Samir Nasri (the latter on loan), and Sevilla’s success of 2016/17 has been built on the backs of those three.

Whether unknown, unfancied or completely overlooked, there is no better unearther of football talent than Monchi.

Monchi, though, has recently stated that he’d like to see if he can do at some other club what he did at Sevilla, and that has piqued the interest of clubs across Europe. Last summer, Sevilla had asked for potential clubs to meet his 10 million euro release clause but however reports suggest that Sevilla’s board of directors will nt be asking the same this summer.

Roma were the club most linked with Monchi, and they had held two meetings already, but the Roma hierarchy is undecided and the deal is far from done yet. While Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested, Perez’s conviction could see Monchi rolling up to Madrid. This is especially the case since Perez’s Presenditial re-elction campaign would get a major boost with the signing

It is near assured that Monchi will leave Sevilla this summer, any club that gets him will be ensuring success in the transfer market. With the kind of kitty that Madrid possess, it will be a scary thought for opposition if the transfer-genius of Monchi starts pulling those purse strings. So much so that this could be well be Florentino Perez’s smartest ever signing

I was very nervous, but when Ronaldo scored his goal I knew we were going to win. Five minutes from the final whistle I entered the field, without really getting heated, and I did not touch the ball, but it was one of the best moments of my career.

The second encounter that marked him was the 3-3 against Liverpool in the final of the Champions League in 2005.

I still do not know how Liverpool could go up and tie in six minutes.

Kaká also mentioned his defeat with Brazil against France at the 2006 World Cup: « I learned a lot of defeats. This Brazilian team was incredible: Cafú, Lucio, Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos … but Zidane was the best that day and on a slip of the road we had to forget the title of world champion.

« Liverpool-Liverpool 2007 was also an incredible match. We arrived with so much motivation, so that the events of 2005 can not be repeated again, we then allowed ourselves no respite. we were winning 2-0 and Kuyt scored. But this time we did not lose. It was wonderful, the best year of my career, « said Kaká.

Finally, the Brazilian recalled the final of the 2007 World Club against Boca: « Although it seems easy, a final of World Club is always complicated. I played it with a shirt that said ‘I belong to Jesus’ and it went around the world. We celebrated the victory like kids and I was named Player of the Match.
