3 ways by which Real Madrid C.F. can save their drowning ship this season
Heading off to a brilliant start this season, Real Madrid successfully clinched two titles, namely the Spanish Super Cup and the UEFA Super Cup in August this season. Subsequently, they started fumbling against the stronger as well as weaker sides of the UEFA Champions League and La Liga.
Sixteen league games into the season, Real Madrid have dropped down to the 4th spot, which is not at all pleasing by their standards. They are points behind the league leaders, Barcelona.
With more than half of the season left, here are three ways by which Real Madrid C.F can save their drowning ship this season.
#3 - Buying a striker in the winter transfer window
The biggest mistake that Real Madrid made this summer transfer window was not buying a backup striker after Alvaro Morata and Mariano Diaz's departure. With no first-class backup option for a striker, Real Madrid is totally dependent on Karim Benzema, who is the only experienced striker in the squad.
Since the beginning of 2016/17 season, Karim Benzema has constantly underperformed with just 13 goals in 41 La Liga appearances. Also, his performances in most of the games have been below par, costing Real Madrid some crucial points in La Liga.
To complete the attack in order to make it lethal, Real Madrid need a replacement for Benzema, which could help in clinching the glorious titles. The upcoming winter transfer window will play a crucial role in deciding the future of the club. As reports suggest, Mauro Icardi, the Argentine striker who currently plays for Internazionale, is heavily linked with a Real Madrid move this winter.
