Report: Real Wanted African To Replace CR7, But He Snubbed Them

Real Madrid reportedly wanted to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with an African superstar, but he opted to snub the Spanish giants.

Click through the gallery above to see some players who have been rumoured to be set to replace Ronaldo at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo left Los Blancos as their club record goalscorer with 450 goals in nine years for them, and the Spanish giants have so far struggled to find an available replacement.

Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were initially linked with moves to Real, but have since declared their commitment Paris Saint-Germain, while Real have publicly stated that they are not in talks with the duo in this window.

Eden Hazard appears to be next in line on Real's wish list, but it remains to be seen whether or not the Spanish giants would be prepared to break the bank for the Belgian.

Spanish outlet El Pais has now claimed that the Spanish giants also wanted Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah after his record-breaking debut season with the Merseyside club.

Real reportedly made contact with Salah's representatives, but the Egyptian opted to stay at Liverpool and sign a new contract.
