While FIFA World Cup 2018 is going on, something big enough has made the headlines instead of the footballing carnival. It is Cristiano Ronaldo joining Juventus from the champions of Europe – Real Madrid. Back in 2008,when Cristiano Ronaldo joined Real Madrid from Manchester United, his transfer fee was world’s highest at £80m. A lot of people questioned the hefty fee, which kicked off an era of astronomical amounts of transfer fee. 438 games and 450 later, everyone has realised what a bargain it was. Now that Ronaldo has left Real Madrid, we look at candidates who may replace him and lay the foundations of new Galacticos.
If you ask anyone who is the real deal of this FIFA World Cup 2018, almost everyone will say the same name- Kylian Mbappe. The 18 year old French man lighted the World Cup. His direct style of play and flair will perfectly suit Real Madrid. He has made his big move to PSG already and it will need an astronomical amount of cash to make him move again. With on the right side of age, Kylian Mbappe will be perfect replacement of Cristiano Ronaldo. He will face Real Madrid and Croatia star Luca Modric in final.
The season hasn’t started on the bright side for the Chelsea fans as Antonio Conte has left the side despite being majorly successful. Eden Hazard leaving for Real Madrid would be another blow. Hazard has great dribbling abilities and beats his marker easily. He is a team man, though doesn’t have a charisma of Ronaldo or Mbappe. His attacking ability will benefit Real Madrid immensely. The star man for Belgium has had a great FIFA World Cup 2018 and Real Madrid have a history of signing World Cup stars.
Once treated as the next big thing, the Star man from Brazil breaks the defenders in half. His flair is unmatched and even Ronaldo has been second in terms of skills for last few years. He is team mate of Mbappe at PSG. Though being an ex Barcelona man he won’t be most welcomed at the club by the fans. But few goals later we doubt anyone will ask questions.
The England and Tottenham star man has a liking for taking on defenders. Real Madrid have a history of buying top Spurs players like Wales star Gareth Bale and Croatia King Modric. The plus point being the relatively cheaper price than the others. He is physically tough but being with Spurs, lacks a winning mentality.
There are many other players on the radar of Real Madrid but none can be the complete package the Portuguese was for Perez and his club. Mbappe is raw, Neymar isn’t clinical enough while Hazard lacks charisma. It’s indeed a mission Impossible.
