Real Madrid are set to embark on a massive £550 million spending spree as they aim to replace their BBC front-line.
Spanish news outlet Don Balon has claimed that Los Blancos are keen on replacing Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo with Neymar, Paulo Dybala and Harry Kane.
Real’s forwards have been faltering this season, and their poor form has seen the club make a stuttering start to the campaign. They currently sit third in the league standings – 4 points behind second-placed Valencia, 8 points behind leaders Barcelona, and are ahead of cross-town rivals Atletico by virtue of goal-difference.
Bale has spent more time on the treatment table than he has on the pitch so far this season, while Ronaldo has scored only one goal in La Liga. Benzema has become a source of utter frustration, with the striker constantly missing a number of gilt-edged chances every game.
Hence, the Spanish giants are determined to refresh their roster and spend big to bring in the next generation of stars. However, none of their current targets are set to come for cheap.
Harry Kane is absolutely flying this season, and a few months ago, Tottenham chief Daniel Levy laughed at the suggestion that the English striker would be worth £100 million.
Neymar just secured a move to Paris Saint-Germain in August worth £198 million, and Juventus are bound to demand a mammoth fee for Dybala as well.
Real can successfully raise the required amount of money by selling their current crop of stars, however, with Ronaldo and Bale already linked with big-money moves away from the club.
