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.
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.
