5 players Real Madrid should sign this window
As the summer window reaches it midpoint period—the crunch zone—one club that is known for its flamboyance in the transfer market has been relatively quiet so far. Real Madrid are yet to make a single signing apart from Alvaro Morata, despite the fact that there are cracks in the team.
They might have just won the Champions League with this squad, but some positions lack backups and it would be dangerous if it stays the same come September 1st.
For one, the midfield lacks bite as there is only one true ball-winner and no box-to-box midfielder in the squad. Similarly, with Arbeloa departure and Nacho’s impending move to Roma, the defense has been depleted.
Hence, Real Madrid need to make some signings—and here are 5 players they could look at.
#1 Paul Pogba
Even though at this point, it seems like he would either join Manchester United or stay with Juventus, Paul Pogba could still end up with Real Madrid. What can be said with some assurance that the Blancos don’t have a player like him and would definitely improve a lot as a team should they sign him.
He is one of those very few players in the world that in an all-rounder. He can defend, attack and also orchestrate the team’s play. He might not have had a great tournament at the Euro 2016, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is one fantastic player who is sure to win the Ballon d’Or someday.
The price tag on his head is a massive one, but money has never been a problem for Madrid. Whether they choose to splash it on him is an entirely different question which, reports are to be believed, has ‘no’ for an answer.
