5 players who can replace Karim Benzema at Real Madrid
One of the premier strikers in world football, Karim Benzema has not been in the best of form for Real Madrid. The Frenchman has struggled to score goals and his catalogue of missed chances has irked the famously demanding Real Madrid fans.
With the Frenchman now 29, and no Alvaro Morata in the team, fans and the board alike are desperate to sign a top quality striker. Los Blancos have never been shy to sign the best players in the world and we take a look at 5 quality players who can replace Karim Benzema at Real Madrid:
#5 Sergio Aguero
Since his switch from Atletico Madrid in July 2011 for £38 million, ‘Kun’ Aguero has more than justified his fee. One of the best finishers in the Premier League and world football at the moment, Aguero who is 29, still has a couple of years left at the very top level.
Whistleblowing website Football Leaks, which specialises in publishing secret documents from the football world, has revealed that when Argentine forward Sergio Aguero was transferred to Manchester City in 2011, Atletico Madrid did not include any clause preventing the striker's sale to Real Madrid.
Another factor which might influence Real Madrid to go for Aguero is the fact that Pep Guardiola clearly prefers the talented Gabriel Jesus over the Argentine ace and Madrid will know that a big money bid could tempt the Premier League side to cash in on the former Atletico Madrid striker.
