Having won LaLiga and the Champions League, Real Madrid are undoubtedly a strong team. And the strong got even stronger, as Los Blancos were proactive on the transfer market, signing two of the best available players in Chelsea center back Antonio Rudiger and Monaco center midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.
But there are always ways to improve even more. Let’s take a look at three areas of the squad that can be classified as weaknesses that Florentino Perez will want to take care of before the summer period ends.
This is the main need that Carlo Ancelotti seems to have identified, as there isn’t anyone the manager trusts behind Karim Benzema. With the World Cup this winter, Benzema will be tested again, and Real need to have a legitimate option behind him who can bring a well-rounded skill-set and goals. They won’t find someone anywhere near Benzema’s level, but they need someone who fits better than Luka Jovic and someone who is more credible than Mariano Diaz.
Juanmi Latasa is an option, but it would be unfair to place so much responsibility on a young player from Castilla. This is not an easy role if you are thrust into the action. Borja Mayoral is a safe, free possibility, but the loanee may not have the quality Carlo desires.
