Real Madrid is the most winning club in the history of the Champions League. From the hand of Zinedine Zidane he achieved what no other team had obtained in the past: three consecutive international titles. However, the present is not the best for Merengue since this Wednesday it was eliminated in the semifinals of the 2020-2021 season in the hands of a Chelsea that "erased" it from the field, both in the first leg and in the round contested at Stamford Brigde. 

And to try to regain international glory, Florentino Pérez, president of the Spanish club, has it very clear: he needs to incorporate players who empower the team and are recognized worldwide to also make profits in the sale of clothing. In that sense, in the midfield appears the name of N'Golo Kanté, who was a Chelsea figure in the series against Merengue. But up front, to the surprise of many, the one targeted by the White House leadership is Romelu Lukaku.

Yes, the Belgian striker who was vital for Inter to be crowned Serie A champion after more than eleven years and cut Juventus' nine consecutive titles, is the main target to reinforce Merengue. Former Anderlecht (2009-2011), Chelsea (2011-2014), West Bromwich Albion (2012-2013), Everton (2013-2017) and Manchester United (2017-2019) are living a great present and would welcome being transferred to Madrid.

Aware that he is wanted by Real Madrid, in the last hours the Belgian forward made statements in which he implies his love for the Spanish club. What did he say to him? He praised Karim Benzema, whom he classified as the best forward today, above Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. "Karim Benzema. There is no comparison", declared the Belgian international in an interview broadcast by the public radio television RTBF asked who he considers the best attacker today.

Lukaku, who has scored 27 goals in 42 games this season, also referred to Benzema's Belgian teammates at Real Madrid, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and attacker Eden Hazard. On Hazard, captain of the Belgian team who has suffered an ordeal of injuries the last two seasons, Lukaku said that he is "in a good head". "He will play again (against Chelsea) and I hope that at the end of the season he can win the League and the Champions League. We can have him 100% in the Eurocup. A 100% Eden would be good", he concluded.
