In the last few hours, the rumours of signings for the Real Madrid striker have been reactivated, especially focused on Timo Werner. But the German player is not the only one relate to the Madridistas, who have seen the departure of Luka Jovic and Borja Mayoral to Getafe. In addition, Mariano is also expected to give it a go after several years of trying.
The situation leaves Carlo Ancelotti at a minimum in a position as important as that of “9“, where Karim Benzema will once again be the leader but, without signings, alone. The Frenchman will not be able to catch a cold, because Castilla´s strikers, Juanmi Latasa, has not added minutes in preseason either. With this, Ancelotti will have to think of solutions in conjunction with the club´s board.
Carlo tried to find in Eden Hazard the solution to the lack of “nine“, but the Belgian player has not convinced so far. His options may be to play in any position in order to be able to go out on the field, but is does not seem to be what the team needs. Discarded are other experiments, such as that of Luka Modric in the attack reference. It was an absolute disaster and will not be repeated. Other alternatives that are presented go through Rodrygo Goes, who against Manchester City showed that he has a goal even with a header despite his 174 centimetres in height; or change the scheme and bet on two instead of three attacking players. With this, he would give special prominence to a midfield full of potential starters. A 2×1 that should not be discarded as an option to consider.
Neither should the possibility of signings be ruled out. The market still has a lot of rope left and the last players to sound have been Timo Werner, Raul de Tomas or Jonathan Burkardt. The first has European experience and is the one with the most cartels in the market. RDT would be the return of the prodigal son and Burkardt the youngest of them all, a bet for the future along with others like Benjamin Sesko, among others. What seem clear is that Real Madrid does not want to jump into the pool without first being very clear that whoever arrives is here to stay for a long time while contributing to the team. Various options that, for the time being, will have to wait, but there is time to resolve the possible shortcomings that a position as important as the one responsible for scoring goals may present.
