The Three Players Cristiano Ronaldo Wants Real Madrid To Sign
Cristiano Ronaldo wants Real Madrid to sign three players to improve their current situation.
The Champions League and La Liga winners have not been at the races this season and are already eight points behind Barcelona in the title race.
And Diario Gol claim that talisman Ronaldo, who himself has struggled domestically and has just two goals in nine games, has told president Florentino Perez to spend in January, as well as telling him the trio of stars he feels can make the difference.
For starters, one man on the list is someone who has regularly been tipped as a potential heir to the throne.
20-year old Goncalo Guedes is a Portugal international, who became the first 18-year old to turn out for the national team since Ronaldo when he made his debut against Russia in 2015.
A Benfica youth product, he signed for Paris Saint-Germain for €30 million in January and has been loaned out to Valencia for the current campaign.
The nifty winger has been integral to Los Che's excellent start to the season, scoring three and contributing further with five assists. Like Ronaldo, he is also a Jorge Mendes client and that could well see him end up at the Bernabeu.
Real have been linked with a January move for David Luiz in January, but it's another Brazilian defender who has caught the eye of Ronaldo.
PSG's 23-year old Marquinhos has blossomed into one of the top defensive prospects in world football after his move to the French capital in a €31.4 million move in 2013, but given his meteoric rise, it would take some serious big bucks for the Parisians to sanction his sale.
Finally, and easily the most likely of the three, Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa is wanted by Ronaldo. Real's interest in the shotstopper is well-documented and it's thought they see him as a long-term successor to Keylor Navas.
The Spaniard is out of contract in the summer, meaning Real could get the 23-year old for absolutely nothing if he doesn't sign a new deal.
