Something isn’t right in the Spanish capital. La Liga super club Real Madrid currently sit fourth in the table, 19 points behind their eternal rivals Barcelona, and 10 behind their city neighbours Atletico. For a club with the fame and financial firepower of Real, this is wholly unacceptable, and it is little surprise that manager Zinedine Zidane is looking to make changes.
It may seem strange to suggest that Los Blancos are struggling in attack, especially given that they possess the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, and the fact that they have scored 45 times in 21 games this season. The reality however is that they are, by their own lofty standards, struggling.
Ronaldo has only eight La Liga goals this season compared to Lionel Messi’s 20, and Bale has only managed six. The relative dry spells that Real’s star players are going through has thus prompted rumours to swirl around a new striker, and Robert Lewandowski is at the top of the list, according to the Metro.
The Bayern Munich ace has netted 18 times in 20 Bundesliga appearances this season, and has become one of the most efficient goal scorers in European football since his move to Germany in 2014.
His addition to Madrid’s current squad would be a sure fire way to get them back to challenging at the very top once again.
