Real Madrid president Florentino Perez ready to spend €250million on two transfers to replace Cristiano Ronaldo

Posted by

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is reportedly seeking two new signings this summer for around €250million to replace Cristiano Ronaldo after his transfer to Juventus.

The Portugal international’s departure gives Los Blancos a major headache ahead of the new season as big names are surely required to help the club replace such a legendary figure.

The players Perez has in his sights would be Chelsea forward Eden Hazard and then a striker like Edinson Cavani, Timo Werner or Mauro Icardi, according to Spanish outlet Don Balon.

Perez is said in the report to anticipate paying around €180m for Hazard and a remaining €70m for one of those strikers.

Together, that could make Real a force up front again, with more goals certainly needed after Ronaldo’s departure and with Karim Benzema suffering a major dip in form last season, netting just five times in La Liga.

Madrid have a history of splashing out on the world’s biggest names so should have little trouble affording these exciting potential purchases, though they are arguably running out of time to get it done.
