I agree with this opinion. Higuain & Benzema are not "true" Number Nine profiles. Higuain fails in the big occasions & is more a "pitbull" style forward, while Benzema is more skillful & his natural area is just outside the goal square. It seems the Real Madrid Directives & technical staff are now aware of the need for a "classic striker" & will comb the European Market for next season.
Mentioned the above, Real Madrid President Florentino Perez sounded out last Tuesday night - after the Champions League semi final game - Borussia Dortmund Polish striker Lewandowski. Apparently, the Real Madrid President invited the player post - match to an office at the stadium to ask & know how he would feel if Real Madrid made him an offer.
The news from Germany is that the Dortmund forward has an agreement with Bayern Munich & this will be his new destiny. However, a players representative has commented that the important element concerning his player is where he is more comfortable. This leaves the door open for Real Madrid.
In conclusion two points:
- Real Madrid acknowledges that the squad needs a class striker, a pure "Number Nine"
- That Lewandowski has been approached & is on the Clubs list of possible candidates.
