Real Madrid have been in fine form since the last season under Carlo Ancelotti. The club won the League and UEFA Champions League last season quite comfortably. However, the club were helped by the sublime performances of Karim Benzema. The Frenchman has been one of the best strikers in Europe for the past couple of seasons ahead of fellow competitors such as Lautaro Martinez, Romelu Lukaku, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, and Robert Lewandowski
The Los Blancos are also planning for the future as the French international is approaching the end of his career. One of the candidates identified for replacing the Frenchman is Inter Milan’s, Lautaro Martinez. The Argentine international is one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe and is in fine form.
The Spanish giant is interested in signing the player as a long-term replacement for Karim Benzema. However, the player will not come for cheap as he is a central part of the project at San Siro. Real Madrid has spent very judiciously over the past few years and this deal will also be carefully planned.
Lautaro Martinez is targetted by multiple top clubs
The Argentina international is on the radar for Barcelona, Chelsea, and Manchester United as well. The three clubs wish to sign the striker as a long-term option in the number 9 role. While Barcelona, Chelsea, and Manchester United are interested, it is almost impossible to reject Real Madrid at this time period.
Los Blancos is a player’s dream destination, and the club is in one of the most successful periods ever. It seems difficult that the player will reject the Spanish outfit for any other club. Real Madrid will hope to complete the deal in the coming summer transfer window as the longevity of Karim Benzema is in question.
Nevertheless, the Italian giants will not part ways with the star striker easily. They will hope to make a huge profit on the player as they are in a precarious position financially. If the transfer materializes then it will be one to watch as it will strengthen Real Madrid for a long-time!!
