Real Madrid have decided to sign a center forward to end the problem they are having. Because they cannot continue another year without a replacement for Karim Benzema, on whom they depend excessively, despite the final result against Mallorca. Florentino Pérez regrets not having brought anyone for this position, and for this reason he already has a list with seven candidates.
All of them would cost less than 20 million euros, or even some could land for free, as is the case of Youssoufa Moukoko. He is 17 years old, and is one of the great hopes of world football. He plays for Borussia Dortmund, and seems to have decided that he will not renew his contract, which expires in June, due to the few minutes he has. Without leaving the Bundesliga, we find Marcus Thuram, son of the legendary Lilian Thuram.
In the Santiago Bernabéu they know him perfectly, since they already faced him a couple of campaigns ago. He is still at Borussia Mönchengladbach, and his price would be close to 19 ‘kilos’. A little cheaper is Ben Brereton Díaz, who is rated at 16, and who is an absolute international with the Chilean national team. He plays in the Championship, the second English division, defending the colors of Blackburn Rovers, who have been very small for a long time.
Continuing with Florentino Pérez’s list we have José Juan Macías, who already knows La Liga Santander, after spending time with Getafe, where he did not succeed. So he returned to Chivas de Guadalajara, where he has continued to demonstrate his quality and ability to find the back of the net. He is 22 years old and can come to Madrid for seven million. Tim Lemperle is another gem who is also on the agenda, and who plays for Köln. In his case he doesn’t have much experience at the highest level, but he does have interesting potential.
In addition, it is a completely different profile to that of Benzema, being a classic battering ram, of great scope, and where he feels most comfortable is without leaving the area. Even less well known is Alessio Besio, from the Swiss Saint-Gallen, but despite being young he has already managed to sneak into the agenda of multiple ‘top’ teams.
Juni Calafat recommends another Brazilian diamond
Finally, we have Matheus Nascimento, who has been recommended by Juni Calafat, who once discovered Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior. So he has the full confidence of Florentino Pérez.
In his case, he plays for Botafogo, and he has just turned 18, so he can already make the jump to Europe.
