Real Madrid are struggling this season and are currently fourth on the Liga table, five points behind the leaders, Barcelona. Los Blancos struggled to get going under their ex-manager Julen Lopetegui, and are now struggling to fire in the management of Santiago Solari as well.

The Madrid-based team scored 23 goals in the opening 15 La Liga games this season and conceded 19 goals during that period. There are a number of issues in the team that Madrid needs to iron at the soonest and the upcoming January transfer will provide them with the opportunity to fix them.

Here is the list of three problems Real Madrid needs to fix during the January transfer window.

#3 Sign a new centre-back

Real Madrid are struggling defensively this season and conceded 19 goals in the opening 15 La Liga matches. Sergio Ramos started declining with age, and Raphaël Varane and Nacho Fernandez are playing far from their best.

Los Blancos need a new centre-back to take the team forward, and they could use the January transfer window as the opportunity to strengthen the team and bring their season back on track.

Kalidou Koulibaly is among the best centre-backs in the world right now and could be the perfect signings for Real Madrid in January transfer window.

Koulibaly is a quick, tall and strong defender. He is comfortable with the ball at his feet and possesses an excellent passing range as well. He completed more than 235 passes this season, with an impressive accuracy rate of 88.1%.  The Senegalese does not rush into tackles and always keeps his calm during crucial moments, which makes him difficult to beat in one on one situations.
