Reports: Real Madrid Identify €170m Target As Cristiano Ronaldo Replacement

By David Kappel - Jul 13, 2018 01:29 PM @kappilinho

After Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid for €100 million earlier this week, Los Blancos have now reportedly identified a €170 million target as his replacement, but will have to do battle with FC Barcelona for his signature.

Click through the gallery above to see Real's most expensive buys ever, according to Transfermarkt.

The 33-year-old joined Juventus on Tuesday, and his departure has left a hole in Real's line-up.

It has been reported that president Florentino Perez and new coach Julen Lopetegui are working hard to find a replacement, and have now identified Eden Hazard as their No. 1 target, according to the Daily Mail.

The Belgium captain was one of the standout performers at this year's World Cup, and has rejected multiple contract extension offers from Chelsea already.

Hazard said earlier this week that "Real is everyone's dream", but also insisted he would first focus on the World Cup before making a decision on his future.

Los Blancos, meanwhile, are preparing a whopping €170 million (R2.64 billion) bid to beat eternal rivals FC Barcelona, who are also reportedly interested in the player's services, to the 27-year-old's signature in this window.

The skilful winger has scored 89 goals and assisted another 75 strikes in 300 games for the Blues so far, and has lifted five trophies since joining the club in 2012.

im glad most of yall are starting to put the CR7/Messi debate and starting to appreciate the two , they actually gave us the greatest football debates i wish none of them wins any ballon dor it must remain at 5/5 for peace sake , a player to replace those two is either not discovered or born yet. neymar but he will never reach the level of those 2, maybe he is the best best after those two , but i wish madrid buys him

his numbers are okay, bale and rodrigues have similar stats, they should get j. rodriguez back and sign a target man like Kane or lewandoski or even aguero or cavani, move Bale to the left but no one will replace Ronaldo and messi
