Ever since Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left the Bernabeu, Los Blancos have been struggling to get things sorted. They initially hired Julen Lopetegui as the new boss, though that did not work out for too long. Eventually, they sacked him and went in with Santiago Solari, which was once again a risky idea.
Though it went well at the start, there is still a need for change and the reinforcements have to come both in the current transfer window and the summer too.
With that being said, it is at present just going to be an uphill battle for the champions of Europe, who will try their best to sign some top players and make the most of the current campaign. However, there is no doubt in my mind and the minds of a lot of pundits that there is only one ultimate solution for Real Madrid to be Real Madrid once again.
The solution that we talk of is signing Eden Hazard from Chelsea and as soon as possible, as some of the losses that the team is suffering at present, is totally unbearable. The Belgian international has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu for quite some time and it will only make sense to get the deal done, as soon as possible.
The La Liga giants need a prolific goal-scorer and the likes of Benzema and co. are just done now. It’s not as if they do not create chances to make an impact, though a play-maker like the Blues’ winger is the need of the day. He has been one of the best players in the Premier League so far this term and is only getting better with each game that he plays.
The west London club will not want to lose him, but with Real looking to force through a deal looking at their current state of affairs, the Londoners will fail to keep hold of him.
A recent story even suggested that the singing of Pulisic was a hint for things to come in the near future. It stated that Hazard would be leaving the Bridge at the end of the current campaign and signing the Borussia Dortmund man, was the club’s first steps in replacing the attacker.
The ship is sinking for the Madrid based giants and Florentino Perez needs to react and fast. The club has all the money in the world to spend, though they need to get the right kind of players in and fast. They have failed to fill the void left by Ronaldo’s departure in the summer and the current transfer window will also play a crucial part, with regards to how their season goes on now.
It will be interesting to see whether the Spanish giants wait till the end of the summer or offer Hazard some sort of pre-season contract. They would have preferred that he left the English giants immediately, though the creative genius might wait till the season ends, as he is at present one of the key players in Maurizio Sarri’s side, which has some big games coming up.
