Real Madrid's first choice centre back pair for over five years, Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane both left the club at the same time, leaving the club short of senior centre backs and would likely be in the market for replacement.

Real Madrid have Eder Militao and Nacho Fernandez as the two senior centre backs and new signing David Alaba could also play as centre back but with two departed first choice CB, Madrid must sign at least one. Below are the three top centre backs they could sign.

Pau Torres - Villarreal

Market value - $59m

Spanish defender Pau Torres is the first on the list of the defenders Madrid could sign. The 24 year old is a full Spain international and played at Euro 2020. He has three years left on his contract and will cost $59m, with the right bid Villarreal could sell.

Presnel Kimpembe - PSG

Market value - $47m

Sergio Ramos left Madrid for PSG and one defender whose place is threatened by that is Presnel Kimpembe. According to reports, he wants out of the club and at the age of 25 with a lot of experience, he could be a good buy for Madrid.

Kalidou Koulibaly - Napoli

Market value - $56m

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is also a defender Madrid could consider. The tall and imposing defender has two years left on his Napoli contract and Napoli could be willing to lower his price if the right offer comes, but at 30 will Madrid be willing to invest in him?
