Real Madrid have been struggling to score and conceded 16 goals in 17 games this season. 16 points are what differentiates Madrid side and Barcelona at this point in time.
Madrid’s poor form is threatening to make for a disastrous campaign, not only in La Liga but also in the Champions League. But, there is still hope.
The next challenge is beating PSG in the UCL and winning the competition for the third time in a row. For that, the Los Blancos need some saviors.
Now let’s take a look at 4 players who could save Zinedine Zidane this season.
4. Mohamed Salah – Winger
This is something that is making the rounds currently. Apparently, Florentino Perez is looking to get even with Barcelona as the Catalans have signed Philippe Coutinho. The president wants a Galactico of his own and has targeted Salah as a result.
Although it is highly unlikely that he would be signed in this window, there is a good chance that he could save the club should he be. If Salah joins, he would play on the right, letting Gareth Bale go to his natural left side and allowing Cristiano Ronaldo to take up the role of the center-forward.
Indeed, this way, all three players would be in their best positions and we could see the Blancos firing from three cylinders. The goalscoring ability of the trio could ensure that the Galacticos end up with 60 goals in the next 6 months, all coming from their boots.
3. Eden Hazard – Attacking Midfielder
This a trickier signing given that he will come in and take up the left-wing, which is preoccupied with Cristiano Ronaldo. Nevertheless, Hazard’s move could push Cristiano Ronaldo up top and also let the Belgian play in his best position.
Speaking of players that could really lift Madrid, there are only a handful who could do so—and Eden Hazard is one of them. The former Lille winger’s trickery has been wowing the world for the better part of the decade and it would help any team in the world.
He has rejected two new contracts from Chelsea in order to push a move to Real Madrid. While he might not have the scoring instincts of Cristiano Ronaldo, he is certainly is a better support player than the Portuguese.
His ability to create chances from the left will greatly benefit the Blancos, who often lack the creativity in the final third.
