Real Madrid are almost certain to go into the transfer market to strengthen their key areas next summer. Under the new boss and club legend Zinedine Zidane, the Los Blancos are shown some signs of improvement. His free flowing attacking principle, without a doubt is a treat to watch.
But there are some key areas Real Madrid should strengthen if they are to cope with Barcelona’s dominance in La Liga next season. We look at the four possible signings which would transform the All-Whites into a formidable powerhouse once again.
1) David De Gea
The Manchester United goal keeper was close to join Real Madrid in the final day of the transfer window last summer. Despite having good safe hands in the form of Keylor Navas in goal this season, Madrid are expected to restart their attempts to bring the Spanish international goalkeeper to Santiago Bernebeu when the transfer window opens in July 2016.
2) Matt Hummels
Real Madrid are limited with their options in the center of the defense this season. An ageing Pepe is expected to enter the final stages of his career, which may leave Real Madrid with Ramos and Varane as the only options in defense.
There won’t be many better defenders than the Borussia Dortmund stalwart Matt Hummels at the moment in world football. His arrival could certainly strengthen the defense.
The World Cup winner was heavily linked to a move to Manchester United last summer and the Premier League giants could once again reignite their interest when the transfer window opens in July this year.
3) Paul Pogba
Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are irreplaceable in Real Madrid’s midfield at the moment. But the inclusion of Paul Pogba could certainly add a different dimension to the team. Moreover, he may fit well in the 4-3-3 playing system of Zidane and could form a formidable partnership with Kroos and Modric.
The transfer could cost them atleast €80 million and the likes of Barcelona and Chelsea are keeping tabs on the French midfielder.
4) Alvaro Morata
The former Real Madrid youth player now at Juventus has a buy back clause in his transfer contract and the Los Blancos could use it to bolster their attacking ranks. The La Liga giants are currently short in talent in their striking department with Benzema as the only genuine number nine. The transfer could still cost them €30 million and Morata is no short of suitors as many Premier League clubs are eyeing for a possible move for the talented Spanish striker.
