Florentino Perez Outlines Five-Man Transfer Shortlist To Revolutionise Real Madrid
The Los Blancos won the La Liga and Champions League double last term but things have gone downhill since then with Zinedine Zidane’s side enduring a nightmare start to the season – leaving them 10 points behind arch rivals and current league leaders Barcelona in the La Liga.
Reports have claimed that all is not well behind the scenes with rumours of a dressing room bust-up that could now dent their campaign.
Rumours claimed that Ronaldo had a dressing room bust-up with skipper Sergio Ramos after they gave contrasting opinions about the club’s current transfer policy.
Ronaldo was apparently angry at the club after they offloaded key players like Alvaro Morata, Pepe, James Rodriguez and Fabio Coentrao.
But Ramos said that Ronaldo’s comments were unfair and opportunistic.
The Real Madrid bosses offloaded Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez in the summer and it now seems that their decision has backfired.
Zidane is having a tough time with lack of options up front – with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema struggling to find form in the La Liga – having only managed to score one goal each so far.
And according to Spanish website Diario Gol, Perez has outlined a five-man transfer shortlist as he hopes that landing them at the Bernabeu can change Real Madrid’s fortunes.
They have not yet dropped interest in long-time goalkeeper target David De Gea but reports claim that the Los Blancos bosses are now monitoring the availability of Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa.
The Real Madrid President wants to rope in Paris Saint-Germain star Marquinhos to bolster their defence and he is also keeping tabs on Aymeric Laporte, Iñigo Martínez and David Alaba.
Perez wants to revamp the Real Madrid midfield and wants to sign Tottenham star Dele Alli to replace Dani Ceballos.
