Time could soon be up for Real Madrid’s current attacking trio of Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo (BBC), as club president Florentino Perez prepares for a revamp.
The Galacticos are struggling domestically this season, having seen bitter El Clasico rivals Barcelona take a dominant lead at the summit of La Liga in Spain.

Usually rampant five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo has been a shade of his typically clinical self this term too, leading to much criticism regarding his underwhelming form.
Such struggles have led to Perez seeking to revolutionise Madrid’s attacking line-up, and the hopeful president has an incredible trio of new stars high on his list of priorities.
It’s reported that Perez will allow funds for Zinedine Zidane to capture all of Neymar, Eden Hazard and Robert Lewandowski, in a bid to return to the pinnacle of success on Spanish soil.
All three stars are key to their current employers throughout Europe, though. Brazil international skipper Neymar is continuing to shine in France for PSG and looks likely of achieving a desired Ballon d’Or somewhere down the line.
Los Blancos have somewhat ditched their ‘Galacticos’ policy in recent transfer windows, particularly last summer when no high-profile names arrived.
But that looks set to change in the coming months, as Real seek the remarkable treble signing of Neymar, Hazard and Lewandowski at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Such moves would be far from easy to negotiate, especially Neymar, who arrived in Paris as the world’s most expensive player from Madrid’s domestic rivals Barcelona only last summer.
But they clearly have the resources to attempt this mammoth move for their targeted trio, while a potential Ronaldo departure would also free-up plenty of funds as well. Watch this space.
