Just a phone call was enough for Real Madrid to do it again. This is how Florentino Pérez changed the arrival of the last signing for Carlo Ancelotti. In a matter of five minutes the player’s transfer was broken.
“We were close to this agreement and we wanted to present Kepa today. But he chose to sign for Real Madrid … He is Spanish and that is why Kepa wanted to accept Madrid’s proposal ”, Bayern Munich himself assured about an operation that was more express than most people think.
This is how Florentino Pérez triumphed once again in a crazy market for the rest of Europe. Five minutes and all done.
Real Madrid was only a few hours back against the wall. Thibaut Courtois ‘s injury and the need to incorporate a new goalkeeper were facing the times of a market that is nearing its end and that, of course, did not have many options on the table. Florentino Pérez and his team looked outside the Bernabéu for a series of names that cost a lot of money.
Giorgi Mamardashvili and Bono were the ones who fit the most, but the economic claims of Valencia and Sevilla in the face of the operation stopped everything .
Madrid had Kepa as another of their options, but Bayern already had a pre-agreement on their future and there didn’t seem to be much time. Only 300 seconds later, Florentino Pérez gave a new 180 degree turn to the situation.
“If we call you, we will still change your idea”
His advisors told the white president and he did not hesitate . Direct call to London, to the player’s environment and operation through Germany more than blocked.
Kepa did not hesitate for a second, he wanted to return to Spain and despite only being a simple assignment, he marked the ground to be able to be Thibaut’s heir these months. The player didn’t even have to hear the terms of the deal.
This is how the most recent signing of Real Madrid took place . One that will lead to official presentations tomorrow and that, above all, once again exemplifies the power of the white machinery when it is required by its technical bodies.
Kepa went from having a foot and a half at Bayern to putting on the starting shirt in just five minutes.
