Real Madrid are missing one piece to the attacking puzzle

Real Madrid’s scoring issues this season have alarmed the club’s board, who are already planning their attacking options for next season.

Karim BenzemaViniciusMarco Asensio and Rodrygo will be all in Los Blancos’ equation up front, as could Eden Hazard.

There is still one spot needing to be filled, but the current situation in the transfer market is unlikely to allow Real Madrid the chance to sign one of the superstar center-forwards they want.

They have Mariano Diaz on the books at the moment and he is in search of a team for next season, while Gareth Bale also has the door opened to him.

Zinedine Zidane will need to find someone who can offer the team better figures in terms of scoring.

One case that the club are following closely is that of Raul de Tomas, loaned out for the last two seasons at Rayo Vallecano.

The 24-year-old has impressed in his first campaign in LaLiga Santander, having scored 14 goals for the Vallecas side.

De Tomas will move back to Real Madrid in July and Zidane is subsequently expected to take a decision on whether his future lies at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu or away from it.

Overall, the Real Madrid attack won’t be too different from the current season’s, but the quintet of BenzemaHazardAsensioRodrygo and Vinicius is already exciting and the addition of one other should complete the puzzle.
