The biggest transfer of the summer has already happened. Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid a few days ago and joined the Italian giants Juventus.
The inevitable debates about who should be his heir appeared after the transfer. The media right now is talking about many players, some of them the hits of the present tournament.
Neymar, Eden Hazard, Kylian Mbappe and Harry Kane are the names that have been mentioned the most. They are all different profiles than the Portuguese, but they can all try to replace him in some way.
Neymar was the guy with the best chances to play in Real Madrid in the next season before the tournament. The media talked about how he wasn’t happy in PSG and he wanted a change. The president of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez even said in an interview that he would like to have him in his team.
He ruined his image in a way in this tournament with all the constant shouts for fouls and penalties. Nevertheless, everyone knows what a player Neymar is. He will probably not score as many goals as Ronaldo, but he could create more on the left wing.
Here you can see the comparison charts between the offensive and passing stats of Neymar and Ronaldo:
Eden Hazard is a similar profile to Neymar Junior. He could add all the things that Neymar would add to Real Madrid and would play in the same position. Zidane wanted the Belgian in Real Madrid, but he is now gone and won’t make the decisions anymore.
These are the comparison charts between Hazard and Ronaldo:
Kylian Mbappe is undoubtedly the best young attacker in the world. He scored very important goals in this tournament at the age of 19 and is France’s greatest hope for the final on Sunday. The problem is that he is a PSG player, just like Neymar. Everyone knows how hard it is to buy a player from the Parisian team.
Harry Kane is a different kind of player than the previous three. He could try to replace Ronaldo in the scoring area. He is most certainly going to be the best goalscorer of the World Cup and we all know that Florentino Perez likes to buy the stars of this tournament.
Neymar would be the best signing for Real Madrid marketing-wise. Mbappe, on the other side, would be a bet for the future. We’ve all seen what he’s capable of and he could become the new global star. Harry Kane should be hard to buy as he has continued his contract with Tottenham recently. Eden Hazard is probably the player who is the most available out of these four.
Mauro Icardi hasn’t showed up yet among the names to replace Ronaldo. If you want to see what he could add to a team, you should read this article. He should certainly be among the favorites to replace Ronaldo’s goals.
