It is no secret that Real Madrid could do with another striker at this point of time. The club are very light on options up top at the moment. Yes, they have arguably the best player on the planet and the hot favourite for this year’s Ballon d’Or, Karim Benzema, in their ranks but beyond him, their options are limited at best.
Mariano Diaz is the only other recognised striker in the squad and even he is being linked with a move away before the transfer window slams shut. The idea of playing Eden Hazard as a false nine has been floated but who knows whether the Belgian will remain fit this season or not.
Thus, it would be smart on the part of Real Madrid to sign another striker this summer and it looks like they have been handed an opportunity to do so.
As tweeted out by Defensa Central, Mauro Icardi’s agents have contacted Real Madrid and have offered a striking proposal.
Real Madrid appear to have been offered the chance to sign the PSG striker
Icardi was an absolute superstar during his time at Inter Milan and considered one of the best strikers in Europe.
It has not worked out for him since moving to PSG though and he is on the fringes of the first-team at the moment. Thus, a move away this summer makes sense for the Argentine. Could the former Barcelona player end up at Real Madrid though?
It remains to be seen how things work out but if Real Madrid do end up signing him, it would be a very interesting move on their part.
While Icardi has not been at his best at PSG, a lot of that has had to do with a lack of chances. He is still 29 years of age though and in his physical prime. Also, if he can rediscover his Inter Milan form, Real Madrid will have a terrific player on their hands.
