MARCA | Real Madrid still dream of signing Neymar
- Jovic remains the most likely arrival
Karim Benzema arrived at Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 and, at the same time, Cristiano Ronaldo touched down in the Spanish capital.
Last summer though, the Portuguese decided to leave, departing as the club’s most prolific scorer with 451 goals. Benzema, to his credit, has 219 himself in that time, but many still believe the Frenchman needs help in attack.
Since 2009, Benzema has had a number of accomplices leading the line. Raul Gonzalez, Gonzalo Higuain, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Emmanuel Adebayor, Alvaro Morata, Jese, Joselu, Gareth Bale, Javier Hernandez, Borja Mayoral and Mariano Diaz have spent time by his side.
Despite the teammates being plentiful, none found continuity in the starting XI.
A bad season at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu has left Madrid looking around for another No.9, and Luka Jovic is the undoubted No.1 candidate.
But those at the club are happy to wait until the end of the season before making a decision and there is still hope that Los Blancos could make a move for Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar.
As MARCA has been explaining, Jovic is the most likely arrival. Eintracht Frankfurt will complete his permanent signing this summer, and Madrid boast a good relationship with the German side.
Neymar, though, remains the preferred option, but isn’t the easiest to pull off.
Eden Hazard and Rodrygo will arrive to join Benzema, Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior in attack, while Mariano will be moved on again.
The Brazilians deserve their own chapter, and they will plan to be
important first team players from the first kick of a ball next season.
Both have confidence and they believe they can offer a lot to the side.
