Real Madrid made a mistake by not signing Dusan Vlahovic in the last transfer market and the results he is achieving with Juventus in Serie A confirm this. The Serb has regained his best form and is proving to be one of Europe’s most dangerous strikers, scoring four goals and an assist in the first four games of the season. This performance is a painful reminder for Real Madrid, who considered signing him when Karim Benzema’s departure was confirmed but ultimately decided against him.
At just 23 years old, Vlahovic is a striker with great potential. Despite the two discreet seasons he played in the “Vecchia Signora”, his ability to score goals was undeniable. Real Madrid could have signed him for a price between 40 and 50 million euros, an investment that seemed appropriate to secure the Merengue striker’s future. But the opportunity was missed and now Juventus benefits from having this young talent in their ranks.
The decision not to sign Vlahovic has become even more questionable given Real Madrid’s current situation. Although they have quality players like Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo in their squad, the lack of an elite striker is evident. The responsibility lies with Vinicius Jr., who has become the star of the Merengue team due to his performances in recent years, but his injury has also put the project at risk. Bellingham helps the team with goals, but it is obvious that the Madrid club needed a starting striker.
Vlahovic would have offered a reliable alternative with great potential for improvement. His youth and ability to score goals from different positions would have given the Madrid attack the boost it needed. Unfortunately, due to the Serb’s good performance, Juve will no longer consider selling him or at least significantly increasing his price at the moment, as he is one of the most dangerous strikers in Europe’s major leagues.
