Real Madrid want to upgrade in attack after the missed Mbappé transfer. Although you have a very strong trio with Benzema, Vinicius Junior and the constantly improving Rodrygo, it gets thin after that. There is no backup for Benzema, who will soon be 35, and the alternatives on the flanks with Asensio and Vazquez are not outstanding either. Accordingly, Rafael Leao and Victor Osimhen should be on the wish list.
Real Madrid would like to build on the successes of recent years and feel compelled to do something on the offensive. According to Spanish Sport, coach Carlo Ancelotti and President Florentino Perez are said to have spoken about Victor Osimhen and Rafael Leao.
The real coach should target the transfers of the two offensive stars in winter. However, that is not really realistic. Osimhen is currently on a wave of success with SSC Napoli. The Italian club leads Serie A and is in the last 16 of the Champions League. With nine goals and three assists in 13 competitive games, the Nigerian striker is one of the absolute guarantees of success. Why should Napoli jeopardize their magnificent season and give up the star striker in winter? This simply makes no sense, since he is also under contract until 2025 and can still bring in a decent fee at a later date. It is understandable that you want a back-up for the now quite vulnerable Benzema, but the station wagon is Benzema
In comparison, a transfer from Rafael Leao would be a little more coherent. The young Portuguese, who has six goals and nine assists this season, could split the game with Rodrygo and also relieve Vinicius Junior. All three players would receive playing time. In addition, the Milan star only has a contract until 2024. As a result, the chances of bringing Milan to their knees with an immoral offer would be slightly higher than Osimhen might be. Nevertheless, it is also clear that the Milan offensive game stands and falls with Leao. If you let the Portuguese go, you can almost write off the season. The reigning Italian champions in the league and in the Champions League are basically on course. A Leao sale is probably only an issue in the summer - should the Portuguese not extend his contract by then. Real Madrid will have to wait a little longer for the long-awaited statement transfer on the offensive.
