4 potential replacements for Karim Benzema at Real Madrid
For too long than it is acceptable, Karim Benzema has spent a miserable time at Real Madrid. Every player goes through these kinds of spells, but watching Benzema, it is not easy to determine if this is a run that will ever end.
The French forward has been missing even sitters in front of the goal. In his 31 appearances in all competitions, he has managed to find the back of the net only 7 times this season and the 30-year-old has often been subject to the wrath of the Bernabeu faithful.
It appears only a matter of time before Los Blancos sign a player to replace the striker this summer. That being said, here is a list of 4 players who can take his place in the starting XI:
#4 Antoine Greizmann
Greizmann was on the cusp of joining Manchester United last summer, only to be denied by Atletico Madrid's transfer ban. The player decided to commit his future to the club and stay with them during their time of need and signed an extension.
However, his release clause is still at a low amount of close to £90 million. The forward has been in breath-taking form recently. He has bagged 23 goals and 11 assists so far this season, and is in no mood to stop.
He has long been linked to Barcelona this season, but it is difficult imagining Catalans signing yet another player at such a high price, considering their recent procurement of Dembele and Coutinho.
Real Madrid have also been linked with the player lately. The 27-year-old would bring the experience of playing in Spain along with him and will be a perfect replacement for Benzema alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
