European champion, Real Madrid lost their momentum to “comeback” to the right path. The moment disappeared in a matter of a week, even worse it all happened at the Santiago Bernabeu, which was the home of EL Real.
There is still hope for Real Madird in the Spanish La Liga stage. But the difference of 12 points from Barcelona, who are at the top of the standings has given false hope, cause Barcelona are in good condition.
The defeat of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane has shown Madrid to be different, and they seem unable to complete a tough task. In other words, Madrid cannot compete in all competitions this season without Ronaldo.
Madrid’s biggest mistake is not trying to find a replacement for Ronaldo. They even seem ordinary and only transfer inexperienced players. Now all important parties in Madrid are focusing on preparing for the transfer market next summer.
Madrid be predicted will make a major overhaul with the preparation of super large transfer money. Here the world-class stars who are predicted to lift the big name Madrid back to the European stage.
1. Eden Hazard
Chelsea’s mega star, Eden Hazard has never stopped mentioning his desire to play at Real Madrid. Although Madrid does not respond, many possibilities occur because Hazard’s contract with Chelsea is uncertain.
Hazard is currently in a good situation, where the former Lille player became Chelsea’s goal machine. Hazard is considered one of the suitable players to replace Ronaldo’s role in Madrid, with speed and skill over other players, Hazard is considered very capable of becoming a Madrid goal machine.
Madrid themselves must be able to reflect, where Hazard is one of the best dribblers in Europe with an average of 3.9 successful dribble per match this season. If Madrid do not pursue Hazard’s signature, it is possible they will be back in trouble next season.
2. Matthijs De Ligt
The name of Matthijs De Ligt is indeed a prima donna of many European elite clubs, including Real Madrid, who have the desire to bring it in next summer. Not only the Dutch National Team core squad, but his name was included in the list of purchases of Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Bayern, Liverpool, Manchester City.
De Ligt with a young age, he was recorded as a clean player, where now only one yellow card with 1.3 successes, 1.3 intercepts, 3.7 strokes and 0.9 blocks per match this season. Although he is still 19 years old, but De Ligt is considered suit to paired with Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane Madrid at the heart of the defense.
Playing for Madrid will make De Ligt’s career shine even more. Despite being a reserve player, the reserve status was very helpful, because it was in a situation with world-class players. In that sense, De Ligt can develop better by learning with Madrid players.
