Madrid is going to overhaul the position as neither wants to rotate anymore. So who wants these guys? smoking

I highly doubt it.

Why would Benzema leave after Higuain leaves (or vice versa)? One of them leaving would solve this problem.

He's on a cheaper contract that he's just signed as well. He is also less likely to rage quit from what I've seen.

Brilliant finishing combined with decent technique, he's exactly what we mostly don't have in the Bundesliga.

because madrid want Falcao and the situation doesn't change... except that falcao would be preferred.

Just for the record, Higuain hasnt signed a new contract with Real Madrid as of now, nothing was made official, iirc.

That'd still be 450k per year, also known as "enough to drive a fast car and live in a big house".

One of Mourinhos biggest failures has been the inability to address the situation of the striker.

His inability to decide on 1 Regular Striker and subsequent rotation has not helped either reach their max potential.

What makes it even more baffling is that both players possess different (complementary) skill sets which makes it perfectly alright for both to start upfront together.
Benz is more of a 10 /false 9 and pipita is much more of a poacher in the Van Nistelrooy mould. With Ozil & Ronaldo out wide, i dont see how Mourinho hasnt tried this more often.

Hopefull both stay, Mou leaves for his beloved PL and the new Manager has enough sense and foresight to see that Benz - Pipita can be the new Raul-Morientes

The better question may be who is coming in to replace them. If both Higgy and Benz leave Madrid, then they obviously have to buy at least one striker. Moreover, if the rumors of Ronaldo departing (pure speculation to this point, i believe), Madrid could be overhauling the two positions they've relied upon to score the majority of their goals. Bale is rumored to be the target to replace Ronaldo, but he's nowhere near as potent in front of goal. If this happens, Madrid would need a World Class striker to shoulder the goal-scoring burden left by Ronaldo and Benz/Higgy. Which available strikers fit that description?

I doubt both will leave.

If either of them leave, hopefully we sign Aguero.

Granted, it's a fairly small group of well-known players. Madrid is highly unlikely to pull someone from a lower-league without much experience to fill this void. The point was to see which is more likely.

Falcao, while a ready-made RM player and ready to leave Atletico, would need to cross the Atletico/Real barrier. We all know the Falcao transfer is going to be exorbitantly expensive, but the fee associated with this move would be unbelievable. That certainly doesn't rule him out, but can you imagine Real dropping ~30-45 million on Bale and THEN going for Falcao?

Kun may be one of the more likely, but there's still that Atletico.Real gap. He played there for 5 seasons before moving to Citeh. While the citizens may start to lose superstars if they can't improve their European performances and challenge for more domestic trophies, I don't think the mass exodus starts next season. I see Aguero sticking around for a little bit, tbh.

Not sure who you mean by Joker... Jovetic maybe? If so, he's certainly a potentially VERY good striker, but I don't see him as quite the caliber that RM need. I see him on the same level as Benzema and Higuain, which is far from a slight to the guy. I just don't see Jovetic as a capable of picking up of the goal-scoring tab left by Ronaldo and Benz/Higgy. In his "break-out season" last year, the lad only scored 14 goals in 27 appearances. Would you call that setting the world on fire? scratch I know there is more to his game than just scoring goals, but for me, the "goals scored" stat is precisely what Madrid should be buying in this situation.

Cavani is actually the player I had in mind when asking the question. He seems to be available for a definite price (everyone's available for a price, the question is just if you can find it and match it); he has no loyalty questions due to previous clubs; and he's the world-class #9 that Madrid would need. I can see him making this switch and thriving next season.

Is there anyone else that seems likely? Gomez could be on his way out from Bayern... Lewandowski looks to be available for the right price... Fernando Torres might be looking for more match-time... Razz
