Real went off the boil this past season but have always had one of the best two or three squads the last number of years. They've never needed to do too much.I see people are going full FIFA Manager mode in here again.
Real Madrid won the CL three years in a row with more or less the same starting11. Most of their transfers during that time were flops.
In that context I also have to mention Spurs. Reached the CL final + the Top4 again without spending.
We have a very good squad but more importantly we have room for improvement from within. Many players who still did not reached their full potential (TAA, Gomez, Fabinho, Ox, Keita, Origi) and the Academy Players of course.
So please stop the ridiculous dreams about Mbappe, Coutinho, Sancho...
Spurs did well making the final plus top four but won nothing. Not spending is not the recipe to success. They didn't invest purely out of principle either.
We have room for improvement but so do other clubs. We also have weak points which need improving. It cannot all be done by coaching and player development.
Coutinho and Sancho might well be possibilities they might not. Coutinho hasn't had the best of seasons and Barcelona might just look to sell him with de Jong and Griezmann quite possibly joining. As for Sancho it will be a question of when not if Dortmund sell if he keeps progressing. Other players were mentioned as well.
