Five big names on Real’s January wish list.
With a number of Real Madrid fans in discontent following the sales of big names such as Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso this summer, not to mention the departure of key player Mesut Ozil to Arsenal last year, the Spanish giants are under growing pressure to bring in more Galacticos this January.
Real president Fiorentino Perez is not shy of opening up his chequebook for the right player, and CaughtOffside understands there could be as many as five main targets ready to come into the Bernabeu midway through the season, particularly if current results do not improve.
Two Premier League stars feature, as do two big names of the Bundesliga who have also been linked with a host of other top clubs around Europe.
The full list is as follows:
5) Yaya Toure (Manchester City)
One of the biggest names in the Premier League at the moment, Yaya Toure is one of the most high-profile transfer targets believed to be on Madrid’s radar this January, with Carlo Ancelotti in urgent need of new signings in midfield. With Xabi Alonso joining Bayern Munich late on in the summer transfer window and Sami Khedira possibly set to leave for free at the end of his contract next year, Toure could be an ideal addition to this squad, and he could be available after causing some trouble over the summer when making a fuss over City failing to adequately celebrate his birthday.
