Real Madrid need to strengthen their squad with some top-quality players during the next transfer window.
Real Madrid aims to attract the best players of the world every year and it will not be different in the upcoming summer either. Club President Florentino Perez always wants the most popular players dressed in white and sometimes he is willing to pay an exorbitant amount of money that others would say is over the limit.
• David De Gea could replace Iker Casillas
• Danilo and Alaba are wanted wing backs
• Pogba or Verratti could strengthen the midfield
• Reus would be new attacker as Bale might leave
That was the case when he signed Ronaldo, Zidane and Figo in his first mandate, and this was the same during his next era at the Royal Team. Spanish gambling news reported that Bale cost EUR 91 million and the price they paid for James Rodriguez was EUR 80 million. The only question left is who will be the new Galactico in the next transfer season.
They want replacement for team captain Iker Casillas
Iker Casillas has been a great favourite for the public of Bernabeu but many believe that his peak is over and he is in declining form. Madrid supporters have been whistling at him ever since the Champions League game against Schalke, where they blamed 3 goals on the World and European Champion goalkeeper.
He has been, however, the saviour in that game showing incredible goalkeeping skills in the last few minutes which secured the qualification for Los Blancos. On the other hand, he is not getting any younger and his side always needs to have the best available options for every position in the field.
That is why many rumours linked Manchester United’s David De Gea to the Royal Team. The Spaniard’s contract with the Red Devils will expire in 2016 and according to UK news, he has refused to renew it because he wants to move to the Spanish capital and be the successor of his idol, Iker Casillas.
Alaba or Danilo would be great new wing backs instead of the unreliable Coentrao
Fabio Coentrao has played pretty well when he was given the chance. However, it is not very easy for club manager Carlo Ancelotti to count on the Portuguese left back as he is injured way too often. In addition, he is only second choice whenever Marcelo is available. Those are the main reasons why he might leave his current employer in the summer.
Online gambling sites in Germany report that Real Madrid’s greatest wish for the left back position would be Bayern Munich’s David Alaba. The Austrian winger has shown amazing performances in the Bavarian side already and he is still only 22 years old. Pep Guardiola, however, is very unlikely to want to sell one of his best players.
A more probable transfer target is FC Porto’s talented wing back, Danilo. He is 23 years old and can play on both sides of the pitch which means he would be the perfect substitute for both Carvajal and Marcelo. Some newspapers claim he already has an agreement with the Spanish side and he will cost around EUR 30 million.
Pogba could become new transfer star but there is a plan B
The midfield with Kroos, Modric and Isco seems pretty stable and fluid for Real Madrid, but Carlo Ancelotti needs to prepare for losing key members as it happened this season. In addition, Khedira will leave Los Blancos on a free transfer while Illarramendi is also very likely to leave, hence, the Royal Team will need to replace them.
Juventus star Paul Pogba is the main candidate for this role as he is regarded as one of the best young talents in recent times. He has been linked to a move with most of the large European clubs but there is a few that could actually afford the Frenchman. Galacticos are definitely one of them and they will chase him throughout the summer.
In case the Royal Club will not succeed with the Pogba deal, they already have a plan B. That is to sign Marco Verratti from Paris Saint-Germain. Pogba’s agent said his client will cost at least EUR 100 million, for which the Italian midfielder’s agent responded that Marco is worth at least as much as Paul Pogba is. Strengthening the midfield will be quite a hard job for Carlo Ancelotti…
Attackers needed as the BBC trio might be dissolved
Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are beloved players at the Bernabeu stadium but Gareth Bale might consider leaving Real Madrid as soon as given the chance. He has been performing poorly ever since he left England for Spain and recently his supporters are losing faith in him as well.
Even though he scores many goals and assist a lot, his overall work does not satisfy supporters of the Royal Club. In addition, if Ancelotti decided to bench him, there is only two available options instead of the Welshman. Those are home-grown Jese Rodriguez and Mexican striker Chicharito but none of them are good enough to replace a top quality player in the starting line up for a longer period.
That is why mobile betting sites believe that Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus might become the new attacker of Real Madrid. The German winger has been injured for months but he has made a return and performs well again in his team. The Champions League silver medal owner attacker renewed his contract which rose his EUR 25 million buy-out clause.
