Real Madrid are reportedly considering making a summer move for Everton’s Richarlison. The Brazilian forward has impressed for the Toffees this season, scoring 13 goals in all competitions, and has caught the eye of several top clubs.
According to reports, Real Madrid sees Richarlison as a potential long-term replacement for Karim Benzema. The Frenchman has been a stalwart in the Real Madrid attack for years, but at 33 years old, the club is looking to the future.
Richarlison has been linked with a move to several top European clubs, including Manchester United and Barcelona, but it seems that Real Madrid is now leading the race for his signature. The Spanish giants are said to be willing to pay around €80 million for the 23-year-old. A fee that Everton may find hard to turn down.
The Brazilian has been in excellent form for Everton this season, showing his versatility by playing both as a central striker and on the wings. He has formed a formidable partnership with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and the two have been one of the most prolific.
Richarlison’s style of play would suit Real Madrid’s attacking philosophy. The Brazilian is a powerful and dynamic player, with excellent pace and dribbling ability. He is also a clinical finisher, with an eye for goals that would make him valuable.
Will Richarlison come to Real Madrid?
Real Madrid has been lacking in attack this season, with Benzema being the only consistent goalscorer in the team. Eden Hazard has struggled with injuries, while Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo have failed to deliver on their promise. Richarlison’s addition would give Real Madrid a much-needed boost in attack and would provide them with a long-term replacement for Benzema.
However, there are concerns about Richarlison’s discipline. The Brazilian has sent off three times this season, and his aggressive play style has to several yellow cards. Real Madrid will need to assess whether his temperament is suit to the pressure of playing for a club.
Everton will be reluctant to lose one of their star players. But the lure of playing for Real Madrid may be too much for Richarlison to turn down. The Toffees are currently 8th in the Premier League and have little chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League. Richarlison may see a move to Real Madrid as the next step in his career and the opportunity to play.
