There’s no doubt that Ronaldo will be a tough act to follow, though recent reports suggest that the Spanish giants are targeting a big-money move for Chelsea’s world class winger Eden Hazard to come in in his place, and the Belgian international may be the best equipped player at the moment to become the next Ronaldo at the Bernabeu.
At 23 years of age, Hazard still has his best years ahead of him, but has long been regarded as one of the most promising talents in the world, and his displays since moving from Lille to Chelsea would back that up, as he has quickly become regarded as one of the best players in the Premier League.
Below is a look at how Real could look like next season with Hazard and another new signing from Chelsea, with Carlo Ancelotti also likely to be on the lookout for reinforcements in midfield…
Goalkeeper and defence:
No change in defence, unless players leave or new targets come on to the club’s agenda. In goal, however, Keylor Navas will surely become the undisputed number one for Real next season as Iker Casillas looks increasingly likely to leave the club at the end of his contract. There has been speculation that Petr Cech could be a target for the Champions League winners, though Chelsea will surely not allow three of their big names to leave all at once.
