The past summer, the Real Madrid spent 333 million euros in the signings of Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Eder Militao, Ferland Mendy and Rodrygo Goes, this last to play in the Castilla and go up occasionally with the first team. Of all they, to day of today, only the Brazilian and the French seem to have carrete to be important in the short term.

Especially worrisome are the cases of Hazard, by which the Real Madrid paid 130 million euros; Luka Jovic, by which paid other 60 'kilos'; and Eder Militao, that cost him to Florentino 50 millions. By distinct reasons, any of the three is having a paper mínimamente important in the team of Zinedine Zidane, by what doubts of the investment of these 240 millions.

In the first place, we find us with Hazard, that came like signing crashes and had to be the leader of a team without Cristiano Ronaldo. The Belgian arrived lesionado and with sobrepeso to the Real Madrid, and his first parties did not fulfil the expectations. But the worst was for arriving: an osseous injury kept him more than two months out of the terrains of game and, in the party of his comeback, fisuró the fibula. To his 29 years, concern his constant physical problems.

Another case of book is the one of Luka Jovic, that with the Eintracht of Frankfurt had marked 27 goals the past campaign and that in the present only has marked two dress of white, showing a performance that leaves a lot that wish. The worst of everything is that, in the last parties, has disappeared of the announcements, with Mariano Díaz eating him the toast completely. It is 22 years old and margin of improvement, but his first year in Chamartín is to forget.

Eder Militao is the third case: it has played only 13 parties with the Real Madrid and has not given good feelings in spite of his good level in the Port wine, where gave big performance so much playing of lateral as of head office. This weekend, hit rock bottom with a disastrous party against the Betis, being one of the big signalled of the Real Madrid in Benito Villamarín. It came like the 'new Pepe', but already begins to doubt of him.

Mendy, again displaced

Of the four signings of the Real Madrid in summer -without explaining to Rodrygo, that plays more with the filial- Ferland Mendy is the only that has left positive feelings, especially by his physical power and his defensive capacity. Nevertheless, Zidane has replaced him by Marcelo in the two last parties, a change that the madridismo does not finish to comprise because of the good do of the ex side of the Lyon.
