Real Madrid’s approach to transfers has received a major facelift over the last few years.
Rather than almost exclusively pursuing Galactico signings—paying big money for the established, best players—they’ve nuanced their approach, casting their net for the best young stars on the market as well as promoting generously from their excellent academy.

But how likely are they to achieve that dream?
