Real Madrid Set To Make A Move For This Spanish Sensation: A Risk Worth Taking For Zidane?

According to Diorio AS, Real Madrid are looking to make a move for Alberto Soro. The 20-year-old attacking midfielder currently plies his trade for the La Liga2 outfit Real Zaragoza and was a star performer for his side last season.

The Galacticos experienced a dull season in every department with most of their players not being able to perform as per expectations. Attacking midfielders like Isco, Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio have all been in disappointing form, which seems to have not gone down well with Zinedine Zidane. Reinforcements are expected to arrive at Santiago Bernabeu this summer with Eden Hazard’s transfer already confirmed.

Real Madrid Attacking Woes

Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, no player other than Karim Benzema has been able to terrorise the opposition defenders, in both the domestic as well as European competitions. The attacking midfielders and wingers have dished out disappointing performances throughout the season, leaving the side in absolute dire straits and on the losing side against even the weaker opponents in all competitions.

The Galacticos are looking to bounce back in the next term and might go for a major overhaul of their current side. They have already started to spend heavily this summer. However, a player like Soro can be a viable addition to the team for the next season.

Why Soro?

In the last term, Alberto Soro was an influential player for Zaragoza. The 20-year-old attacking midfielder’s stats don’t show the whole picture, and his ability to dribble past the opposition defenders has turned him into a sensation in the Zaragoza camp.

In his very first season in La Liga2, Soro has shown that he is capable enough to bamboozle even the top quality defenders with his classy footwork. He also can score from a variety of ranges, which could make him a convenient option to utilise for Zidane if they can land him this summer.

Good Fit For Zidane?

Though Soro is still untested at the top level, his exploits in the last term helped him earn rave reviews from the experts. At Real Madrid, it is hard to see him as a part of the first team from the very beginning. However, he could be used as a backup option by Zidane, who has the ability to bring the best out of the Spain U18 international.

The spending spree that the Galacticos are experiencing in the current summer transfer window shows their determination to make it back to the top of the table in both the European as well as domestic competitions. The addition of Soro could be a significant boost for them ahead of the next term and provide the 13 times European champions with a decent option to stabilise their midfield.
