Real Madrid have digested the departure of Karim Benzema well. After leading the Spanish attack for years, the Frenchman took charge of Saudi Arabia and Al-Ittihad last summer. A significant loss on the pitch as well as in the locker room where Nueve, who wore the armband, was one of the captains. We wondered how the residents of the Santiago-Bernabéu stadium were going to do without him. Especially since they did not recruit a world-class number 9 to replace him, no offense to Joselu, who came to base to play understudy.

But yesterday, A.S. explained, with supporting figures, that the Merengues were able to move on. Last season, KB9's last in Madrid, they averaged 2.08 goals per game. During this 2023-24 financial year, they are doing better since they have an average of 2.23 goals per match. Jude Bellingham has long been the most efficient in front of goal, he who is now helped by Vinicius Jr, who is now the most effective. Joselu scored 13 goals and gave 3 assists. Even if we imagine that with Benzema Real Madrid would surely have been better, the Iberian club is doing very well without him.

Rodrygo is very courted

However, Florentino Pérez and his teams do not intend to stay like this next year. Kylian Mbappé and Endrick will join the Spanish capital and seriously strengthen the team's offensive compartment. The Madrid attack will look great with these two players but also Joselu, Brahim, Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo. Regarding the latter two, some media have indicated that one or the other could be sacrificed to make room for KM7 and young Endrick. Regarding Vini Jr, Real Madrid is counting on him and wants to associate him with Mbappé. Carlo Ancelotti is preparing him in this direction. For Rodrygo, the idea of ​​the Madrilenians is to continue with him.

This is also the plan of the player, who has a good relationship with the Mister. Despite everything, he could pay the price for the competition and the system put in place. This has not escaped the attention of several teams, who are willing to offer him better. Sport explains that Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United but also Manchester City are all in the game. They inquired about his situation and the possibility of stepping into the breach to recover the 23-year-old Brazilian, author of 12 goals and 7 assists in 39 matches in all competitions (32 starts). If his release clause is set at 1 billion euros, it will be necessary to spend more than 100 million euros to recruit him. His suitors have been warned!
