5 players who could save Real Madrid this season
16 points. That is what differentiates Real Madrid and Barcelona at this point in time. The way the Galacticos have been playing and the way Barcelona are strengthening, it is only a matter of time for us to witness the Blancos putting up a guard of honour for the Catalans in their next meeting in the league.
However, there is still hope. There is always hope. 3-4 bad games for the Catalans and the opposite for Madrid could bring them back in the hunt. But for now, the league should be considered as done and dusted.
The next challenge is beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and winning the competition for the third time in a row. For that, the Blancos need some saving—and here are 5 players who could save this season for the Galacticos.
#5 Mohamed Salah
This is something that is making the rounds currently. Apparently, Florentino Perez is looking to get even with Barcelona as the Catalans have signed Philippe Coutinho. The president wants a Galactico of his own and has targeted Salah as a result.
Although it is highly unlikely that he would be signed in this window, there is a good chance that he could save the club should he be. If Salah joins, he would play on the right, letting Gareth Bale go to his natural left side and allowing Cristiano Ronaldo to take up the role of the centre-forward.
Indeed, this way, all three players would be in their best positions and we could see the Blancos firing from three cylinders. The goalscoring ability of the trio could ensure that the Galacticos end up with 60 goals in the next 6 months—all coming from their boots.
