Real Madrid were offered the chance to sign Rafael Leao by agent Jorge Mendes but quickly made a decision, according to a report.
An update from MARCA begins with the simple declaration that Real Madrid decided long ago that they will not sign anybody in the upcoming winter transfer window, meaning there will be no new additions to announce except for that of Endrick, who will not join the squad until summer 2024 anyway.
Carlo Ancelotti is happy that there will not be much activity in what it ‘a clear message of confidence towards his squad’, while Real Madrid themselves do not want to succumb to the pressure of agents using the current World Cup as a way to offer their clients around.
They state that Rafael Leao’s name has been ‘put on the table on several occasions’ by his agent, Jorge Mendes, but Los Blancos have always said no. At the moment, there is no interest to sign the Portuguese winger from the LaLiga champions, with the same said for Cody Gakpo of PSV and Garnacho of Manchester United.
