Should Real Madrid launch to sign a scoring striker this summer?

Four days. That’s the time left real Madrid to fight for him first title of the seasonbecause this Wednesday will be measured at Frankfurt Eintracht at the end of the European Super Cup. The whites arrive with the category of great favourites, after an almost perfect last season in which they managed to win the Champions and the League. But, for five years, the Madrid club continues to suffer from the same problem. Is it true that they need to sign a striker?

After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo back in 2018, the question was clear: should Madrid incorporate another player who would ensure 50 goals per season? At that time, the Portuguese striker was the great reason for the success of Real Madrid, since a good part of his goals not only did they lead the team to win titles, but they covered up the great defensive problems it suffered. Now, the situation has changed diametrically: the team of Carlo Ancelotti He has clearly improved his performance at the back and, moreover, has managed to awaken Karim Benzema in a state of grace.

Or, put another way, Real Madrid has become a team more than solid in defense and also has the best striker in the world today. This situation has led them to win two league titles in the last three years, in addition to the Fourteenth, a historic Champions League based on comebacks, which confirms the team’s good form. It is true that Benzema is not a normal nine, but it is no less true than last season signed 44 goals and 15 assistsperfectly accompanied by a Vinicius who made another dream season, with others 22 goals and 16 assists.

In recent courses, in Madrid he has not been successful when it comes to incorporating a substitute striker. Luka Jović has not lived up to expectations, as a player who arrived with the seal of goalscorer —and in exchange for 60 million euros— has left, leaving 3 goals and 5 assists in three seasons. In case of Mariano is similar, but with the disadvantage that not willing to leave the team. This situation has made other players, as is the case with Borja Mayoral, have decided to emigrate due to the lack of opportunities. And, meanwhile, the white fan is still wondering if it is necessary to incorporate another ‘nine’.

Benzema He has been playing at the ballon d’or level for several seasons; Viniciusshowing that he is one of the most unbalanced players in the world; Rodrygo, who is a player with enormous nerve and a lot of sense of smell; Y Asensio that, despite not being a constant player, he misses the goals. The combination of all of them causes Madrid has covered its shortcomings facing the rival goalbut this season is special: the length of the course, with an unprecedented world championship in between in the middle of winter, will cause ups and downs of form in all teamsand only a good wardrobe will prevent the debacle in the field.

Madrid knew it and, aware of it, he put almost all his eggs in Mbappé’s basket. With a verbal agreement with the player, what the White House could not expect was his refusal at the last minute which, incidentally, left him unable to incorporate Haaland. Without the opportunity to win the two great jewels of the market, Madrid was aware that only two paths were open to them: have the same team as last year and give a chance to homegrown players like Rate or, conversely, incorporate a low-profile strikereither a proven veteran or a young man with projection without ownership requirements.

Now without Jovic or Mayoral, looking for a solution to Mariano and with the quarry as the only replacement for Benzema, Ancelotti has started testing Hazard as a ‘false nine’ in order to find him a position where he will have more minutes this course. Now, the question that remains is to know if the Belgian can readapt and offer a first level performance in that new location or, on the contrary, it is preferable to give it an opportunity starting from the band and bring in a player who secures goals as a striker, one of those that the player himself generates within the area. A ‘goal hunter’.

There is still almost a month to go before the market ends and the official matches are about to fall, precisely the same ones that they can change Madrid’s mind. It is true that Ancelotti stated weeks ago that the signing chapter was closed, but it is no less true that if the ball does not enter in these first stages of the season or if an unexpected injury occurs up front, the whites will be forced to go to the market. Five courses after the departure of CR7, the same question about Madrid continues: is he obliged to sign another striker this summer?
