Benzema’s ideal successor will come from Real Madrid’s bitter rival Barca

Karim Benzema's backup striker is still being sought after by Real Madrid.

During the summer transfer window, Real Madrid have been contacting many different strikers. However, most of them are poor quality and little known names. Therefore, “White Vulture” cannot promote the buying and selling process quickly.

In fact, coach Ancelotti once shared Real Madrid will close the transfer and do not need to buy any more players. However, the Italian military leader had to change his mind after the tour in the US. Testing Hazard in the virtual “9” position may not be as expected. In the friendly against Barcelona, we saw Real Madrid find it very difficult to attack without Benzema.


The reason why Real Madrid must be careful in selecting strikers is easy to understand. “White Vulture” wants to bring back the person who can inherit the superstar Karim Benzema. “Number 9” is currently too big a shadow for other strikers to overcome. In fact, there are many players who fail to take on this role instead of the French striker.


Karim Benzema’s replacement at Real Madrid may be found in Barcelona. Memphis Depay is available for merely €20 million, according to the asking price Barca set for him. Just a sixth of what Madrid paid for Tchouameni, once more.

The Dutch striker, who can operate anywhere in the front three, would be a top-tier substitute for Benzema.


There are numerous strikers ahead of Memphis in the pecking order, so if he decides to stay at Barcelona this season, he will have difficulty getting playing time.

Memphis Depay no longer plays an important role in Barcelona’s squad after the team recruited Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha. The sale of Depay has not been formally disclosed by Barca. The former MU star is still conscious of his fragile condition, though, and is getting ready to depart Camp Nou. Particularly with the arrival of some players like Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha at Camp Nou, he almost fell behind in the offensive.


Recently, Barcelona gave Robert Lewandowski, their latest acquisition, the number 9 shirt in place of him. 

Memphis is a potent goal scorer who is swift, powerful, and an excellent dribbler. He scored 13 goals last season, making him Barca’s leading scorer for that reason.
