5 strikers who could replace Karim Benzema at Real Madrid
Netgenz - Netizen buzz Sport | Karim Benzema joined Real Madrid in 2009. So far, the player from France has helped Los Blancos win 20 titles, including 4 European Champions League trophies. He managed to record a total of 311 goals and 157 assists in 593 games for Real Madrid.
He is no longer young, 34 years old, but Benzema's performance is still fairly constant nowadays. However, Real Madrid still needs to look for an alternative to Benzema for a replacement shortly.
Here are 5 strikers who could replace Karim Benzema at Real Madrid
1. Darwin Nunez
Darwin Nunez was a young striker who was popular with Benfica. The player from Uruguay appeared so impressive in 2021/2022. Of the 33 matches that have been passed, he managed to make 26 goals and 2 assists.
That record includes 4 goals scored by the player in the Champions League. Because of his impressive performance, Benfica successfully slid to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Nunez's own bandrol is in the range of 40 million euros or the same as Rp. 633 billion. The nominal is definitely not a problem for a team like Real Madrid.
2. Marcus Rashford
Marcus Rashford throughout the years has played an important role in Manchester United's front row. Not only good at scoring goals, but he was also able to record several assists. In fact, the player from England has made 93 goals and 58 assists in 297 games for the Red Devils.
Unfortunately, Rashford has often been substituted by Ralf Rangnick in recent weeks. Finally, the player reportedly began to be unhappy at Old Trafford. Real Madrid can optimize this situation to bring Rashford to Santiago Bernabeu.
3. Victor Osimhen
Victor Osimhen's name first appeared when defending Lille. In the summer of 2020, the Nigerian striker chose to continue his profession with Napoli. Having appeared inconsistent in his season, Osimhen has now developed into one of the outstanding strikers in Serie A.
The 23-year-old player has so far scored 15 goals and 4 assists in 25 matches in all competitions. Although his contract with Napoli still runs until 2025, Osimhen is reportedly the target of great European teams, including Real Madrid.
4. Erling Haaland
Erling Haaland is often said to be the best young striker in Europe's great competition. Everything can not be separated from the striker's cool performance with Borussia Dortmund in these years. In 2021/2022, he was able to make 23 goals and 6 assists in just 23 matches.
This must have made Haaland the target of some of Europe's elite clubs. Borussia Dortmund is said to be ready to release the Norwegian striker if there is an offer of 75 million euros or equal to Rp. 1.18 trillion.
5. Kylian Mbappe
Kylian Mbappe is Paris Saint-Germain's flagship striker. The 23-year-old has won many titles with the French giants. The problem of sharpness in front of the enemy's goal, Mbappe certainly does not need to be doubted again.
He has recorded a total of 26 goals and 17 assists from 37 matches in 2021/2022. Mbappe himself has the potential to leave PSG for free in the summer of 2022. Because he only has three months left on his contract. Real Madrid is reportedly the first club to get Mbappe's signature.
Losing Karim Benzema apparently had a huge impact on Real Madrid's performance. Recently, Los Blancos who played without Benzema were beaten by Barcelona with a score of 0-4 at the Santiago Bernabeu. If you don't want this to happen again, Real Madrid will definitely have to bring in a new striker shortly.
