Real Madrid is currently planning to find a replacement for Karim Benzema as the French striker is showing signs of declining form.
Real Madrid’s attacking line is facing issues as Karim Benzema is currently the only established striker. While Mariano Diaz’s contract will end at the end of the season and is not part of Real Madrid’s plans.
According to Spanish media, Real Madrid is looking for a striker to share the attacking responsibilities with Benzema, in light of the French striker’s repeated injuries this season and the beginning signs of aging.
There have been reports that Los Blancos are monitoring Erling Haaland’s situation at Man City. The whites are reportedly ready to jump into the race to sign the Norwegian striker if the financial fair play allegations against the blues are proven to be true.
However, the likelihood of Haaland leaving City is very low, and Real Madrid will still have to sign a new striker as a backup in case Benzema gets injured or loses form.
According to Fichajes, Real has received an offer from the representative of Vlahovic. The Serbian striker is reportedly unhappy at Juventus and wants to play for a more ambitious club.
According to The Times on December 31st, 2022, Arsenal has shown interest in signing Dusan Vlahovic in January. Meanwhile, Tottenham, Manchester United, and Chelsea are also ready to jump into this deal. However, according to the director of Lecce, Pantaleo Corvino, who brought Vlahovic to the spotlight, the striker should not leave Juventus during the upcoming transfer window.
Corvino spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport, reported by Football Italia, “Are you kidding me? Dusan is not ready to negotiate. For Vlahovic, besides the big numbers (transfer fees), his talent speaks for itself. He is a complete striker, he can score, has good awareness, technique, progress, and skills without war.”
“And besides, he is still young. I advise him to stay in Turin, even if he is not in the Champions League. Juve is always Juve, a destination. And after the storm, peace always comes.”
