Real Madrid director of football Arrigo Sacchi has revealed that the club is involved in discussions with new players, but is in no hurry to close the deals.
“There is a lot of talk but if you look around the world there is very little movement in the transfer market at present. We will do something, but we are in no rush,” Sacchi told radio station Cadena Ser on Wednesday.
Real have been linked with a number of big-name players like Brazilian forward Robinho and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, as well as the relatively unheralded Uruguayan, Carlos Diogo.
“Everyone knows Real are interested in Robinho. Diogo is less well known and would cost less but we have followed him and he is a player I like,” Sacchi added.
“Signing players is difficult because there is little money and not many people want to sell.”
After two seasons without winning any silverware, Sacchi has already warned the club’s squad of galacticos that nobody’s place will be guaranteed next year.
“The last two years have shown that football is a team game with individual moments. Our plan for next season is to construct a balanced team. A star only wins a game – a team wins the league,” Sacchi said.
“Real needs players who deserve to play whether they are called galacticos or not. The squad has to play about 70 games. Do you really think a player can keep running at full speed for 70 games? No.
“We will try to sign galacticos but in the positions we need them.”
