El Gol Digital has recently reported that Real Madrid are facing competition from Atletico Madrid for Everton forward Richarlison this summer. It is believed that Los Blancos will now have to compete with their local rivals in the race to sign the Brazil international in this off-season (via El Gol Digital).
Richarlison’s Fruitful Season In English Football
Richarlison experienced a productive campaign with the Merseyside outfit after he established himself as a top performer in the opposition half. The 24-year-old was involved in 40 matches for the Toffees last season, registering 13 goals and three assists in various competitions.
The Nova Venecia-born sensation continued to perform at a high level for Everton as he averaged 1.4 tackles, 1.0 clearances, 2.4 shots, 0.7 key passes and 1.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in Premier League football. However, he was guilty of being sloppy when linking up play with others around him in the attacking end of the field, based on his pass completion rate of 70% in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Richarlison is only going to get better with age, so Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti should think about reuniting with his former player by bringing him to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium during this summer transfer period.
Real Madrid To Rival Atletico Madrid For Richarlison: Is He Worth The Fight?
Richarlison can score goals consistently in top-flight football when he is firing on all cylinders in the final third. He has a knack for finding space and can get a few shots in on-target by making clever turns in and around the opponent’s penalty box.
The 27-time Brazil international can orchestrate some inviting chances for his teammates up top but needs to improve his assist numbers based on how he performed for the Toffees last season. Ancelotti has already shown during their time together at Everton that he can get the best out of Richarlison in patches over the course of a whole campaign. Hence, the Italian tactician will be confident about making the most out of his former player’s talents at the Spanish capital.
Richarlison will be well-worth the fight as he will add a lot of quality to Real Madrid’s frontline. The Premier League attacker could go on to form a lethal attacking partnership with Karim Benzema over the next few seasons. Hence, Ancelotti should consider going all out to acquire Richarlison’s signature this summer.
