Real Madrid find themselves in a good spot right now and are in the running for a Champions League and Copa del Rey double. At the same time, one cannot overlook the fact that they need to strengthen their ranks in the summer. The club are lacking in depth at this point of time, and a number of their stars are getting up there in age as well.
One area in particular need of reinforcements is striker. Karim Benzema is still a fantastic player and a difference maker, but he is 35 years of age and has faced fitness issues throughout the season. On the other hand, Mariano Diaz has barely featured in recent times and is expected to leave in the summer when his contract runs out.
Thus, Real Madrid could definitely do with another option up top. And it looks like a Liverpool superstar has caught their eye.
Real Madrid ready lucrative offer for Liverpool superstar
Firmino has been a key part of Liverpool’s successes under the management of Jurgen Klopp. But the Brazilian forward is expected to be on his way out of Anfield in the summer, as his current deal is set to run out.
Firmino has achieved pretty much everything that there is to achieve at Liverpool. Thus, it is not hard to understand why he might be after a new challenge at 31 years of age.
While Firmino might not have been a pure goalscorer for Liverpool, he certainly is someone who improves the players around him. That is why both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane enjoyed so much success while playing with him. And he could have a similar effect on the likes of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Federico Valverde and others, if Real Madrid are able to sign him.
