Real Madrid made just two signings this summer, Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco and Antonio Rudiger as a free agent after his Chelsea contract expired.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti wanted a forward and was interested in signing Gabriel Jesus before his transfer to Arsenal.

However, Real Madrid failed to sign the Brazilian forward due to the fact Gabriel Jesus possessed a non-EU passport.

Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior and Eder Militao already occupy the 3 non-EU spots in the Real Madrid and another non-EU player couldn’t be signed due to La Liga rules.

Gabriel Jesus has gone on to shine for Arsenal since signing joining the Premier League side. Jesus has scored 2 goals and provided 3 assists in 3 appearances since joining Arsenal.
