Back 40 years for Real Madrid at the end of the summer transfer window …
You don’t change a winning team … Sacred Spanish champion at the start of the summer, the real Madrid lived up to the adage. Once is not custom, the club merengue have not recruited any new player, contenting themselves with a few loan returns like Martin Odegaard.

This summer transfer window without any reinforcement is a milestone. Real Madrid had not been inactive in a transfer market since 1980. La Liga winners the previous spring, Real Madrid had to settle for second place at the end of the season.
