Real Madrid started this campaign on a high, having won both La Liga and Champions League titles last term. However, they have struggled defensively and the lack of a solid goalscoring forward has left their season in shambles.
Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez will look to capitalise on the impending transfer window by grabbing some talented players to help them get back on track, ahead of the business months of the 2017/18 campaign.
In these times of crisis, the Bernabeu begs for some change. Real still have ample time to pull up their socks, paving the way through the remainder of this season and beyond. The following three players would help offer significant hope to the supporters and their ambitions going forward:
#1: Paulo Dybala (Juventus)
Dealing with Gareth Bale's injuries is proving troublesome for Real at present. He has spent the majority of this season sidelined, whilst also being heavily linked with a Premier League return too. Dybala is a viable option for Los Blancos at present, to replace Bale - having developed tremendously in recent seasons whilst establishing his quality at Juventus.
Bale provides both pace and strength during counter-attacking moves, but Dybala's playstyle relies heavily on player positioning and his own individual skill. He is versatile enough to play in a range of different attacking positions, whilst co-ordinating well with midfielders as they aim to create opportunities galore in the final third.
His blistering pace and dribbling skill, which can also be utilised on the wings, opens up options for the forwards to benefit from - hence why his partnership with compatriot Gonzalo Higúain has been so effective in recent seasons.
So far, his spell in Turin has been fantastic. He has all the makings of a player that Real would benefit from and even though he'd not be eligible to feature in the Champions League this term, having represented the Serie A champions already in group stage competition, they could show a real signal of intent by acquiring his services next month.
