Real Madrid transfers !!!!
Finally, Asiel Illarramendi has made a permanent switch to Real Sociedad, the very club that he was signed from two seasons ago, in a deal that hasn’t exactly been profitable for the ‘Merengues’. At the age of 25, Illarra has signed for Sociedad for six seasons. Two years ago Real Madrid paid €40 million for the midfielder, but they’ve sold him back to the same club he came from for just €17 million.
Shortly after this move was announced, Real Madrid also confirmed the season-long loan of Coentrão to Monaco. The 27-year-old full-back was captured from Benfica in a €30-million deal back in 2011 and yet this summer the Bernabéu higher-ups struggled to offload him for even half that amount.
Now the Real Madrid have freed up space in their squad to make some transfers before the market closes. Neither of the two featured in Rafa Benítez’s plans, and as a result ‘Los Blancos’ have found different solutions to move them on.
