Real are struggling with scoring goals at the moment, which highlights the significance of not signing a suitable replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who now plays for Juventus. Manager Julen Lopetegui still believes Mariano will eventually start firing, but according to El Confidencial, club president Florentino Perez has given orders for the market to be combed in search of a new striker.
The name that has appeared on their list, among others, is RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner. The German international is an extremely versatile attacker, quite capable of playing on either flank if need be, despite his best position being centre-forward. His excellent link-up play also makes him an effective “false nine”.
However, Real might yet decide to go another way in solving their goal-drought problem, by signing a ready-made star. Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is still an option, and Tottenham Hotspur possibly going out of the Champions League after the group stages could open the door for them to try and bring Harry Kane to Santiago Bernabeu.
