Real Madrid secured their 4th Champions League title in 5 years last month when they defeated Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev. However, no one would deny the fact that Madrid had a pretty average season domestically finishing 17 points behind winners Barcelona. Ever since Florentino Perez came in for his 2nd stint and the Galacticos 2.0 revolution began, the club has been hugely successful but even the best of teams need new additions to keep them at the top year after year and with Zinedine Zidane announcing last week that he was stepping down as the manager of the club, Madrid have the perfect chance to revamp their squad, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo’s future far from certain. There aren’t many players who would refuse an offer by Real Madrid, and the club has enough financial might to sign the player they desire, except of course Argentine superstar Lionel Messi, who looks like he is going to be with Barcelona till the end of his career.
Real Madrid transfer news has been dominating the headlines not only in Spain but around the world. Neymar is constantly being linked with the club, while there are some of the other players who have been on Madrid’s radar for some time and now might be the perfect opportunity for the club to make a decisive move. We will bring you the Latest Real Madrid transfer news through the summer but before that let’s take a look at 5 players that we feel Real Madrid must buy this summer in order to take the league title next season and who knows maybe complete a double or treble season.
Eden Hazard transfer news has seen the Belgium star being linked with Real Madrid numerous times over the past few years. The 27-year-old is highly admired in Madrid and will make for a blockbuster signing if the deal does go through. There is no doubting his talent on the pitch and his influence on the overall performance of the team.
He can win matches single-handedly and can elevate his level multiple folds if he does decide to shift bases. Unfortunately for Florentino Perez, Hazard has always maintained that he is comfortable in London has no plans for moving yet. However, the last season hasn’t be really great for Chelsea and the Belgium international hasn’t been pleased with the playing style. At Madrid, he will be given the freedom to express himself along with his world-class support cast.
David de Gea
David de Gea could have so easily been a Real Madrid keeper if not for a faulty fax machine at Manchester United training ground. The Spanish number 1 is currently the best keeper in the world and ever since he started scaling astronomical heights between the post, Real Madrid have been interested in him.
David de Gea transfer news has always has always seen him getting linked with Real Madrid, who at one point were ready to throw whatever amount of money it needed to get him to the Spanish capital.
De Gea himself has expressed his desire to play in the Spanish capital after leaving Atletico Madrid and it won’t be surprising to see the 27-year-old in all whites at some point in his career. However, Real Madrid are looking for a goal-keeper and if they sense any opening at Old Trafford, they will be ready to pounce on it.
Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational comment regarding his future at Real Madrid, the Spanish capital club were into panic mood trying to decipher his language. If Ronaldo does move away from the Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid will have to push for a marquee signing this summer to lead the line for the team and there aren’t many blockbuster players like Brazilian international Neymar.
Neymar moved to PSG for a world record fee of €222m, and it would take a bid of in the region of €300m but if there is a player who can capture the worlds attention like Ronaldo, it is the Brazilian star and he would definitely add a lot of quality to the Real Madrid line up. Neymar transfer news regarding his links with Madrid have been flowing thick and fast in the last few days and with the World Cup approaching, Madrid know that this summer they won’t have the luxury to doodle over their moves in the transfer market.
Neymar’s dream of winning the Ballon d’Or isn’t in danger at PSG but there is no doubt his chances will be significantly improved if he moves to the Spanish capital.
Lewandowski is apparently not happy with Bayern Munich’s performance in Europe over the past few seasons and is on the lookout of new employers if the right opportunity arises. Real Madrid have been linked with several strikers over the years to replace Benzema but haven’t really gone through with a proper bid. This summer all that could change as Real Madrid look to add some real jewels to their 3-time Champions League winning squad.
Lewandowski is among the best strikers in the world if not the best, and it’s not hard to imagine the quality he would bring to this Real Madrid team, especially if he the likes of Bale and Ronaldo supplying him balls in the middle. On days when Ronaldo is going through a rough patch, the Polish international will provide a world-class alternative.
There were reports last week that prior to Zidane’s announcement of him stepping down as the manager, Real Madrid were devising a strategy to get Sadio Mane to the Bernabeu this summer. The Senegal international was in superb form in the Final following Mohamed Salah’s departure, even got on the scoresheet for Liverpool consolatory goal.
Mane’s performance in the 2017-2018 season have been slightly overshadowed by the Egyptian Salah but during the early stages of the season, it was Mane who was wrecking defences week in week out and gave Liverpool that quick-fire start.
