SON contender, Real Ghana to replace Benzema…with three candidates
Is Richarlisong a substitute for Benzema?
It is news that Richarlison, a rival of Tottenham Son Heung-min, is attracting attention from Real Madrid. Real have drawn up a list of three candidates to replace veteran Karim Benzema.
Benzema’s contract with Real ends this summer. Benzema will turn 36 in December of this year, but he is still a formidable player up front if he manages his stamina well. However, it is unclear whether he will remain at Real Madrid. It seemed that Real would push for a short-term contract, but since there is no news of a reduction, he must also prepare for the situation in which he will be released as a free agent.
Real are already ready. According to local reports, Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez is known to have three candidates as Benzema’s successor.
The first player is Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain). A player inseparable from Real Madrid. In recent seasons, Real has been steadily pushing for Mbappe. But each time it has failed. PSG rejected Real’s £137m offer for the summer of 2021.
Mbappe succeeded in extending the contract with Mbappe ahead of this season, but within a few months, rumors of Mbappe’s transfer came back. Mbappe is like a ticking time bomb that doesn’t know when or where it will go off. If Mbappe becomes a free agent next summer, PSG should sell him this summer.
Benfica striker Gonzalo Hamus is the second candidate. He left a strong impression on the Portuguese national team at the World Cup in Qatar. Since then, he has been active in Benfica. He has compiled a good record of 23 goals and 9 assists this season. However, the contract between Hamus and Benfica is until the summer of 2026, so Benfica is unlikely to give it up easily. Manchester United also gave up on Hamus. 안전놀이터
The last candidate is Tottenham’s Brazilian national striker Richarlison. Richarlison joined Tottenham ahead of this season, and has only scored two goals and four assists in 26 games. There are no goals in the Premier League. More recently, he expressed his dissatisfaction with manager Antonio Conte for not using him after being knocked out in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 by AC Milan.
But his talent must be outstanding and other big clubs are expressing interest in him.
