Real Madrid were rumoured to be after several big players this summer – and here are three stars Los Blancos failed to snap up.
The Juventus midfielder was linked with a host of Europe’s top sides this summer, including Real, with reserve team coach Zinedine Zidane admitting the club were after him. However, Los Blancos and the Bianconeri were unable to agree terms, so the 22-year-old will remain a Juve player until January at least.
David de Gea
De Gea’s failed transfer to Real has turned out to be the biggest saga in recent deadline history. Both clubs have released statements suggesting the other was at fault, but only thing that can be said for certain is the paperwork to get the Spaniard from Manchester United to Los Blancos was not completed in time.
Real were certainly interested in the Chilean’s services, but it’s believed Los Blancos pulled out of the deal after Vidal was caught drinking and driving while on international duty. The Juventus midfielder ended up joining Bayern Munich instead.
