Manchester City have been linked with Eden Hazard according to latest reports. The Belgian who has been one of the best players in the Premier League has been linked with Real Madrid on multiple occasions. With City now joining the hunt, Madrid will have to face stiff competition. Here are three options for Real to consider.

Mohamed Salah

The 25-year-old has been the signing of the summer for the 2017-18 season. The Egyptian came from AS Roma for a fee reported to be around £36.9 million which could and seems likely to rise to £43.9 million.

Many people were sceptical about the transfer given that Salah’s previous experience in the Premier League was a rather poor one with the Egyptian failing to make a mark at Chelsea. However, Klopp remained convinced of Salah’s qualities and the Egyptian repaid the manager’s faith in him by churning out some world-class performances.

The exciting winger who has been bulleting past Premier League and European defences has already scored 25 goals this season.

Such a high scoring stat has caught the attention of Real Madrid who could now be interested in bringing the Egyptian to Santiago Bernabeu. If Salah were to leave for Real Madrid, he would be a perfect foil in the final third of the attack to Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.


The Brazilian superstar has evolved into one of the best players in European football. His status and value were quantified when Paris Saint Germain came knocking for him with a jaw-dropping bid. The Brazil winger is now scoring regularly for his new side as he wishes to emulate the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo by winning several Ballon d’Or awards.

However, it has also been reported that the player is unhappy with life in France and is already planning a move back to Spain, with Barcelona’s arch-rivals Real Madrid preferred to be his destination this time around. Should the move go through, Real will have to pay a whopping amount but will surely be bringing in enough quality to replace their ageing Ronaldo.

Paulo Dybala

The left-footed Argentine has been compared to Messi on several occasions for their similar stature and nature of football. Dybala has been in imperious form for Juventus this season and is finally living up to his potential of becoming a world-class player. It will not be surprising to see Florentino Perez, make an audacious approach for the Juventus forward and given Perez’s history of bringing in star players to Madrid, a switch to the Bernabeu could well be on the cards for Dybala.

Although he would be playing on the right wing, Dybala would certainly be a like for like replacement for Ronaldo in terms of the quality he can add to the Real attack. Finally, a chance for Bernabeu to see what it would be like to have a Messi-ish player on their team.
