In a recent report, Defensa Central stated that Real Madrid are showing interest in LOSC Lille forward Jonathan David. It has been revealed that Los Blancos are eyeing a move to bring the Canadian striker to the Spanish capital in the summer.
David’s Impressive Run Of Form In French Football
David is having another fruitful season at the Decathlon Arena – Stade Pierre-Mauroy as he has put in a run of impressive displays as the spearhead of Lille’s attack. The talented centre-forward has banged in 21 goals and earned four assists in 30 matches for the French club during this campaign across all competitions.
The 23-year-old has been a reliable performer in the final third based on his average of 3.1 shots, 1.4 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in Ligue 1. He has even been tidy when distributing possession in the opponent’s half after completing 82.5% of his attempted passes in the French first division (stats via whoscored).
David is under contract at the French club until the summer of 2025. Thus, Los Blancos will have to pay a big fee if they are serious about recruiting the Canadian striker.
What Will David Add To Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti’s Team?
David has got the pace to cause a lot of problems for the opposition centre-backs and can shoot the ball with venom and accuracy from all ranges. He has established himself as a prolific presence in front of the opponent’s goal and can also make some decent plays for others around him on the offensive front.
We can expect David to add plenty of goals to Carlo Ancelotti’s frontline. He could go on to form a deadly partnership with Karim Benzema at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium over the next couple of years.
At 23, David will only get better in the future and would be a great signing for Real Madrid this summer. He would give Ancelotti more options in the final third and might even help the Madrid giants challenge for even more major trophies over the next decade. Thus, Los Blancos should focus on going all out to secure David’s services when the transfer window reopens later this year.
