Real Madrid have not been at their absolute best ever since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo three years ago. They did win the La Liga last season but have failed to deliver in Europe ever since the Portugal national left Santiago Bernabeu. The Los Blancos ended up making big money signings like Eden Hazard from Chelsea and Luka Jovic from Bundesliga. None of them have seemed to work out so far. Although Madrid have been decent, they look way off their original self.
Hence, here are 3 players that Zinedine Zidane should sign to get Real Madrid back in form.
Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland has been absolutely exquisite over the last couple of years. The youngster is almost the hottest property in Europe currently. The center forward would be absolutely perfect for Real Madrid. The men in white have had problems upfront with finishing and being lethal. Karim Benzema gives his best season in season out and ha surely been the talisman since the departure of Ronaldo.
However, the Frenchman is ageing and will need a long term proper replacement soon. The former RB Salzburg player looks absolutely lethal for someone this young. He looks more complete than ever. From pace, strength and top-notch finishing, the youngster has got it all to be a Real Madrid legend.
2) Kylian Mbappe
Another youngster that is Europe’s hottest property in football currently. Mbappe won the world cup with major contribution at 18 years of age and leads a major club like Paris Saint-Germain. At this young age he recently reached a 100 goals for PSG in all competitions. From exquisite finishing to galloping pace, the player is literally made to play for the Los Blancos.
The Frenchman has idolized Cristiano Ronaldo ever since he was a kid and what would be more better to go and replace the legend himself at the Bernabeu. Mbappe would be another player who would perfectly fit at Real Madrid and diminish the problems they’re facing at the front.
3) Aymeric Laporte
The Manchester City defender is known to be fantastic on the ball and brilliant at defending. Whenever he has played, the tea has a very high win percentage. However, the defender has been sidelined this season by Ruben Dias and John Stones. A few rumors were heard about Laporte being linked to Real Madrid. If the player was to head to the La Liga, it would be perfect.
Laporte has experience playing in the La Liga as he has played for Athletic Bilbao previously. He has been brilliant for Manchester City whenever he’s played. If Sergio Ramos is set to leave at the end of the season, the signing of the City center-back will provide some competition for Raphael Varane and Madrid’s defensive problems would be solved.
