Rate Real's Transfer Window

Real Madrid did not sign any "Galacticos" this transfer window, but spent €89.5 million on eight arrivals. How would you rate Los Blancos' signings?

The Spanish giants failed to sign their main target, goalkeeper David de Gea, after some admin errors on deadline day, and, overall, it was a rather dull window for Real’s liking.

Here is a breakdown of the players Los Blancos signed:

Mateo Kovacic – €35 million

The 21-year-old central midfielder joined Real from Inter Milan and was the club’s most expensive transfer this window. He is undoubtedly among Europe’s most promising talents, but he won’t improve Real’s starting XI, in which Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are nailed on to start most matches.

Rating: 6/10

Danilo – €31.5 million

The 24-year-old right back joined the club from Porto. He was one of the standout players during the Portuguese side’s campaign last season and will battle with Dani Carvajal for a spot in Real’s backline. He is still young and is surely a great addition, but it's questionable how the fans will react to Danilo being chosen ahead of Real youth product Carvajal.

Rating: 7/10

Kiko Casilla – €6 million

A former Los Blancos youth product, the 28-year-old goalkeeper was brought in to make sure Real have at least two quality shot-stoppers, whether De Gea signed or not. He will most likely sit on the bench for most competitions, but was a necessary addition.

Rating: 5/10

Lucas Vazquez – €1 million

The 24-year-old is another youth product of the club who returned to Bernabeu. However, it is questionable as to how much he will help the first team.

Rating: 4/10

Casemiro – End of loan

The 23-year-old central midfielder was another star who wrote positive headlines at Porto last season. He is young and has a lot of potential, but it seems unlikely he will break into the starting XI this season.

Rating: 6/10

Denis Cheryshev – End of loan

The 24-year-old was another who looked sharp while on loan last season. However, Cheryshev won’t start many games, but he seems a decent back-up for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Rating: 6/10

Jesus Vallejo – €5 million (loaned to Real Zaragoza)

Marco Asensio – €3.5 million (loaned to Espanyol)

Both players have tons of potential and were bought because of Real’s new focus on Spanish talents. They could, in future, help the club, but still have a long way to go.
