During the summer, Zinedine Zidane said that they had a great squad and the team was closed. However, only three games after in la Liga, the manager admitted that “perhaps, we’re short of a ‘9’”. Los Blancos sold Morata and Mariano, getting back Mayoral. Perhaps it’s not enough to keep the good level of the team. Now, we want to show you the options to reinforce the squad during the winter transfer window.
At least, Real Madrid will have Cristiano Ronaldo back to face APOEL in their Champions League debut. Benzema’s injury and the poor level showed by Gareth Bale, gave us the impression that Real Madrid will need another striker very soon. In the market there are some options that we want to show you.
Alexis Sánchez. The Chilean striker is not playing the Champions League this year, so he’ll be able to participate in this competition from February onwards. His contract expires the next season, so he can negotiate from the 1st of January. He tried to leave Emirates Stadium in the summer, but he didn’t find a new club.
Kasper Dolberg. Ajax striker didn’t start very well the season, because the club was kicked out of the Champions League and the Europa League in the preview stages. He’s only 20 years old but he was able to lead his team to the Europa League final last season. It’s an investment looking at the future.
Timo Werner. With only 21 years old, he has become one of the best strikers in Germany and the future of the German national team. Currently, he’s playing with Leipzig, the runner-up of the Bundesliga and he’ll make his Champions League debut tonight. Therefore, he won’t be able to play the competition with other team.
Domenico Berardi. Although many newspapers linked him with Real Madrid, it’s very unlikely. The 23-year-old striker is playing with Sassuolo but last season he only scored 5 goals and the previous one 7. He’s having problems with the injuries, but he should get a transfer to a better club soon enough.
These are the best options for the winter transfer window, but, generally speaking, Robert Lewandowski is the best striker in Europe. This week, Bayern Munich’s executive board chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admitted that Lewandowski’s love for Real Madrid. Los Blancos have always been interested in the player, who scored four goals against Real Madrid in a Champions League semi-finals. Perhaps, this summer is the good opportunity to get him.
