The Portuguese superstar is believed to have an influence on transfers, and is keen to make that count. He has jotted down the names of three players who he thinks will be instrumental to the club’s success in the years to come.
The first of the trio is his fellow compatriot, Goncalves Guedes, who is on loan at Valencia from Paris Saint-Germain. The 20-year-old is a sensational talent, and has been tipped to achieve great things in the future.
Having made his International debut at the young age of 18, he has continued to impress, and has done enough to make Ronaldo believe he has found a potential successor for himself once he eventually retires or leaves the club.
Second on CR7’s own personal radar is another PSG player, Marquinhos. The 23-year-old’s increasing importance in the French club’s first-team has not gone unnoticed around Europe.
The Brazilian is very highly rated around the club, and would cost a fortune with the current inflation in the market, so getting him would be a tough ask.
However, Real do have plenty of money to boast, and Marquinhos could potentially act as a replacement to Sergio Ramos once the Spaniard calls it a day, and could partner Raphael Varane in defense for years to come.
Athletic Bilbao keeper Kepa completes the list, with the goalkeeper all set to leave the Basque club this summer. He is also very highly rated, and has been linked to Los Blancos for a while now, with some saying he could be plan B if a move for De Gea fails.
But with his contract at Bilbao ending in the summer, and no news of a renewal offer on the table, he looks the most likeliest of the trio to sign for Real anyway.
