Real Madrid Want Lukaku As Ronaldo Replacement
Real Madrid will try to sign Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United after Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus, Don Balon claims.
The European champions lost Ronaldo to Juve in a deal worth at least €100 million (£88m/$117m), meaning they will have to reinvest in their attack.
The club could turn to Lukaku to strengthen Julen Lopetegui’s team, but the Belgian would likely knock Karim Benzema out of his position.
In other news, Barcelona have announced the €40 million (£35m/$47m) signing of Arthur from Gremio.
The 21-year-old will move to the Camp Nou immediately despite being expected to stay at Gremio until January 2019.
Arthur will help fill the midfield void left by Andres Iniesta and Paulinho.
