Two players who Real Madrid can target as Alvaro Morata replacement this summer if he leaves for Manchester United.
Real Madrid are currently the best club in Europe and it is resounded in their back to back Champions League victories under Zinedine Zidane. However, the Frenchman is desperate to bring in some quality to the squad and is looking to add some of the brightest players in Europe to the club this summer.
This will end the time at the club for a couple of first team stars and one player who is sure the leave this summer is Spaniard Alvaro Morata. Linked with a move to Manchester United and AC Milan, and Morata has not been able to establish himself in the first team at the Bernabeu and is expected to fall down the pecking order next season.
So he is not expected to stick around, leaving the 12-time Champions League winner with a hole to fill in their next attack. Here are two players who can target to fill this void next season.
Romelu Lukaku (Everton)
Though he is not as such established as Aubameyang or Morata in Europe, Romelu Lukaku is easily one of the best players in England at the moment and would be a useful replacement for the Spaniard at the Bernabeu. He might be a tad expensive but is a genuine goal scorer, who has enough potential to claim a first team place at the Spanish capital in the years to come.
Lukaku is yet to prove himself in Europe or outside England, but his playing styles are tailor-made to lead an attacking line like that of Real Madrid’s and Zidane should look at him as a possible addition to his ranks. He is ready to leave the Goodison Park and neither Manchester United nor Chelsea are ready to meet his valuation. So Real have a great chance of snatching him away.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund)
The Gabonese international is one of the finest finishers in world football at the moment and was in brilliant form in the Bundesliga. Aubameyang was linked with a move to the Bernabeu last summer, with the player himself claiming that he would love to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, but a move never happened.
However, he is now up for a move this summer and though it looked like PSG had won the race to sign the Dortmund man, he is still in the market, searching for suitors. He could cost around €70m but the Spanish giants will recoup most of the price, as they are ready to sell Alvaro Morata for a mouth-watering fee. Surely, the Gabonese is one player the Real should target this summer.
