Real Madrid‘s 1-1 draw with Real Valladolid brought up more questions than answers.
One of those questions is whether Los Blancos need Neymar more than they need a strong and quick midfielder like Paul Pogba.
Karim Benzema can’t do it all on his own in attack. On several occasions in the first half on Saturday, the Frenchman had to leave his central position to help his teammates.
There isn’t another goal-scorer in Zinedine Zidane‘s squad other than Luka Jovic, who wasn’t convincing during his time on the pitch, and that’s why Pogba‘s name is being mentioned.
Neymar has the ability to dribble at speed – something that this current Real Madrid squad lack when Eden Hazard isn’t in the team.
The Estadio Santiago Bernabeu continue to call for the Brazilian and they expect to see the former Barcelona forward in the famous white shirt.
Zidane started with James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale and Isco against Valladolid but wasn’t able to quicken the pace of the game with his substitutions.
The joy of Vigo hasn’t lasted very long and the doubts from fans and club directors have returned.
There are eight days left of the summer transfer window, but what exactly do Real Madrid need?
The audacity of Neymar or the strength of Pogba?
