Real Madrid is currently in a difficult situation. They saw the team struggle for results in the run-up to the World Cup, as it appeared that the hectic schedule had eventually caught up with Carlo Ancelotti’s men.
As a result, despite losing the El Clasico in convincing fashion against Madrid less than a month ago, Barcelona now leads Los Blancos by two points.
Most fans believe that if Real Madrid is to fight for all three titles this season, they will need to strengthen their strike force in the January transfer window.
The striker position is one that requires immediate attention. Karim Benzema has struggled with injury problems throughout the season, and he was ruled out of the World Cup after injuring himself while training with the France national team.
However, according to Marca, Real Madrid is not interested in signing a new striker in the January transfer window. They didn’t do it before Benzema’s injury, and they’re not doing it now. The club has complete faith in the French striker.
Despite Benzema’s injury problems, Real Madrid make a surprise January transfer decision.
Several rumours have circulated in the media suggesting that Real Madrid will be looking to the World Cup to find another striker to replace Benzema.
However, it appears that this may not be the issue after all, and that Real Madrid is content with their current options.
In Benzema’s absence, Rodrygo has frequently been deployed in a forward role, and while the Brazilian has performed admirably, it is clear that he is not yet ready to lead the line for Real Madrid. Mariano Diaz is the squad’s only other recognised striker.
