Former Real Madrid manager Fabio Capello has stated that the Los Blancos should go for Mauro Icardi in the next summer transfer window as the proper replacement of Cristiano Ronaldo. The club management of Real Madrid have failed to bring in a prolific goalscorer like the star Portuguese footballer in this summer. That’s why the Spanish side is struggling in La Liga in this season. The Los Blancos were unexpectedly beaten by Alaves with a margin of 1-0. After that shocking defeat Real Madrid are now at the fourth position in the League Table of La Liga.
According to the former Real Madrid manager Fabio Capello, Real Madrid have to bring the Argentine centre forward Mauro Icardi in the next summer. Fabio Capello told,
“I am a fan of Icardi, I like him. Real Madrid should make him their priority, because he is the most similar player to Cristiano Ronaldo and is deadly in the penalty box.””He is the player Ronaldo has been in recent years and Icardi is someone who has that movement and feel for the goal.”
“He is a specialist in the penalty area, as was Cristiano Ronaldo, and if you put three balls in the area he hits all three. If I were Real Madrid, I would sign him immediately,”
Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Juventus from Real Madrid in this summer transfer window with a transfer fee worth £105 million. After some initial problems, Ronaldo is now trying to settle in the Italian club. After his departure, there is a huge void in the attacking third of Real Madrid and they need someone who will score regularly for their side. Mauro Icardi is a prolific goalscorer and the Argentine has proven his worth over the years playing for Inter Milan. Icardi’s contract is going to expire in 2021; but the club management of Inter Milan are planning to extend the contract of the Argentine centre forward till 2023. Real Madrid have to make a big money move to bring in Icardi if the player signs a contract extension now.
