Real Madrid offered chance to sign €75 million striker
Real Madrid need to strengthen their options up top. Karim Benzema is expected to be handed a one-year contract extension. But the Frenchman’s lack of fitness and form have raised worries this season, and he no longer feels like a player who the club can rely upon to deliver the goods week in and week out.
Unfortunately, the club do not have any real back up option to Benzema. Mariano Diaz has barely featured and is almost certain to leave, when his current deal runs out. On the other hand, Alvaro has impressed, but he is 18 years of age and cannot be relied upon to be the main man up top.

As a result, Real Madrid could do with another striker. And it looks like they might have a chance to sign Dusan Vlahovic.
As reported by AS, Vlahovic has put himself on the table for Real Madrid through intermediaries. The economic problems of Juventus and the latest sanctions put upon them mean that they might have to part ways with some players in the summer.
It was a little over a year ago that Juventus signed Vlahovic from Fiorentina for a transfer fee believed to be around €75 million.
Massimiliano Allegri’s system has never looked like the best fit for the striker, but he has still been one of the club’s best players since then.

According to stats from Transfermarkt, Vlahovic has scored 20 goals and provided 6 assists in 49 appearances for Juventus across all competitions till now.
Someone like Vlahovic could be an excellent long-term addition for Real Madrid. But it is expected to take a big transfer fee to sign him.
It will be interesting to see if the club make a move of that magnitude, while they are still being linked with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.
