Alvaro Negredo admits that Erling Haaland could be the best solution for Real Madrid, because of the problems with injured strikers.
Haaland along with Karim Benzema
Los Blancos needs to attract another striker along with Karim Benzema, says Alvaro Negredo. At the same time, he suggested that the star of Borussia Dortmund Erling Braut Haaland could be the “perfect fit.” Erling hit the ground, running in Germany, with record feats before the goal, seeing how he builds his foundations laid by him in the RB Salzburg. Former Real Madrid striker Negredo admits that the 19-year-old striker could be the next “Galactico” at Santiago Bernabeu, saying to journalists: “I’m surprised. He’s a footballer I’ve seen a lot, and he’s spectacular. He can hit both “and takes every chance. He will continue to grow.”
Benzema and Bale don’t have many goals due to injuries
He pressured that Haaland was something Madrid lacked, Negredo added: “He can be.” Zinedine Zidane is believed to need another forward in his team, as people like Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale continue to fight for form and fitness. “He has excellent defense and one of the best midfielders in the world, but I think that the attack costs them the most,” Negredo said. “Not Karim Benzema, Dangerous does not perform at his expected level due to injury, like Bale. They do not have many goals.” Because of the image of Benzema’s game, they need someone else. He needs another forward.
Negredo likes Benzema even when he doesn’t score
“I like him even when he doesn’t score, and I would approach someone to take advantage of things. He goes into wings a lot and needs someone else to come.” More is supposed from Isco, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Fede Valverde. Then there is Bale and Hazard. I hope he returns to his best because Madrid needs him and I love him. “Karim started 18 times in the current campaign, 30 times in the past season, finding the goal. Real Madrid considered that they landed a suitable alternative when winning the race for Luka Jović in the summer of 2019, but the Serbian has hardly made its mark and has only two efforts to his name.
“This is hard because he doesn’t get the same minutes he has in Germany,” Negredo said of the striker who scored 27 goals for Eintracht Frankfurt in 2018-19. “He came from the game all the time to play just a few minutes. Minutes and trust are the most important things for an attacker, and five to 10 minutes are not enough here. Real Madrid will hope to find attacking inspiration from somewhere on Wednesday when it takes the last 16 in the first leg of the critical Champions League meeting with Manchester City.
