Real Madrid's director general Jorge Valdano has revealed that Mesut Oezil is the final summer recruit for the club, therefore putting an end to their transfer transactions.
The 21-year-old Germany international playmaker passed his medical and signed a six-year contract with the Blancos on Wednesday afternoon. Speaking at the official unveiling of Oezil, Valdano clearly stated that the club's movement in the summer transfer market is now closed.
"We have now closed the signings for this coming season. We have made a great effort to rejuvenate the team and we are very pleased to complete this objective."
However, Valdano admitted that they will have to sell players between now and the time when the transfer window closes, saying that they "must streamline the workforce and this will be done in the coming days". But he insisted that none of the Spanish players will be sold.
Valdano added: "Jose Mourinho has worked with players from the quarry during the pre-season and is very comfortable with them. He is also very pleased with the completion of the signing of Oezil.
"At no time had he asked the club for a striker. With the arrival of Oezil, we have a player who can play in different positions."
