The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018 meant the departure of 50 goals a season and Real Madrid have been trying to work out how to replace him and those goals ever since.
In that first summer, they brought in Mariano Diaz from Lyon and then last year they signed Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt, but the former has four goals in 790 minutes and the latter has two goals in 770 minutes.
As such, Los Blancos are set to sign a striker for the third summer in a row unless there is a major change in Jovic‘s fortunes before the end of the season.
There is increasing concern at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when it comes to the scoring of goals, especially with Karim Benzema‘s form having dropped off at the start of 2020.
As such, various forwards are already being linked with Real Madrid and the names of Lautaro Martinez, Timo Werner and, in particular, Erling Braut Haaland stand out.
Real Madrid‘s excellent relationship with Borussia Dortmund goes in their favour, as does the fact that communication exists once again with the player’s agent Mino Raiola.
Haaland would cost around 75 million euros, but he is a player who has been on their radar for some time and who wouldn’t take up a non-EU spot, which isn’t the case with Lautaro.
As such, there is particular focus on the Norwegian right now, without forgetting the near-impossible option of Kylian Mbappe.
