Following the arrival of Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea and Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco, Real Madrid aren’t expect to make any more signings this summer.

However, according to media outlet ABC, Real Madrid will need to sign a back-up striker for Karim Benzema should Borja Mayoral leave the club this summer.

Borja Mayoral is expected to be the backup for Benzema in the new season following the exit of Luka Jovic to Fiorentina. Mariano Diaz is also expected to leave this summer.

Borja Mayoral, who has just one year left on his contract, would reportedly prefer to leave Real Madrid this summer so he can play regular first-team football.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid star Lucas Vazquez has claimed 34 year old Karim Benzema and 36 year old Luka Modric are better now than they were seven years ago.

Vazquez told media outlet AS: “The word is example. They are players who, at 34 years old Karim and 36 years old Luka, are the ones who run the most in games. They are very important players for us.

“Who would have thought that Luka would play at the age of 36 in the starting midfield every game?!

“That Benzema was going to be Real Madrid’s number 9, the league’s top scorer, scoring 44 goals this season at the age of 34?!

“That shows that football has changed, that the players are taking more care of themselves, they are more professional.

“They are an example for the whole world. Modric is better now at 36 than when I arrived and he was 29. Karim is the same: he is a better player now than he was seven years ago.

“I have seen his evolution and I have been able to enjoy his football. It is something wonderful. They are two examples, not only for the people of Madrid, but for world football.”
