He real Madrid He needs a signing for the next campaign. Beyond reinforcing the midfield, given the possible departures of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, Florentino Pérez should go to the summer market to hire a replacement of guarantees to Karim Benzema. The French striker is not going through his best moment since the start of the season. The true reflection of this is in the injuries: at this point in the championship, Benzema has been absent up to six times. The last one, against RCD Espanyol, where Madrid knew how to recover from his absence with a 3-1 victory at the Bernabéu.
The number of injuries that the French forward has gone through, the most important just in the World Cup in Qatar after ‘erasing’ himself from the previous games with Madrid, lead him to be on a tightrope. Despite this, whenever he was needed he appeared. At Anfield, above all, with two goals and an assist. Now, the meringues doubt his renewal. With the achievement of the Ballon d’Or, it was expected that he would renew automatically, but months later it has not yet occurred. He ends his contract in June 2023 and there are only three months left before the moment arrives.
What candidates are there to replace Benzema?
First of all, Kylian Mbappé. At fichajes.net we told you that Madrid’s priority was to sign the French striker. Erling Haaland was in the background and, although he is not completely ruled out, his signing is complicated. Without a doubt, if Florentino Pérez executes either of the two, Real Madrid would have a substitute more than guarantees given the loss of Karim Benzema. Although, it is also around the option of Roberto Firmino.
