The impossible XI ‘The Sun’ thinks Real Madrid will have in 2020
No one doubts that Florentino Perez and Zinedine Zidane are going to make massive changes at Real Madrid this summer. However the English newspaper ‘The Sun’ have gone considerably more distant than that and they’ve guaranteed Madrid could make upwards of seven new signings: every one of the seven would go straight into this dream lineup.
There appears to be no logic or reason behind this potential XI other than offering better players in most positions across the team. What’s more, while Madrid are probably going to have a ton of cash to spend in the mid year, not even they have enough money to sign the team seen in today’s newspaper.
In fact only Real Madrid’s defence remains in this XI, which makes even less sense when you consider how leaky it’s been this season. Carvajal, Ramos, Varane and Reguilon all hold their spots.
Not content with marking Courtois the previous summer, ‘The Sun’ names Manchester United’s De Gea in goal.
Modric, Kroos and Casemiro are all ‘out’. In their place comes Pogba (Man United), Kante (Chelsea) and Eriksen (Tottenham). Three signings which would cost over €100m each.
However it gets even more delusional further forward. The new look front three is made up of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe (both PSG) and Eden Hazard (Chelsea). What amount would verifying those expense: nearly €600m?
In that capacity,’ The Sun’ names this XI: De Gea; Daniel Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Varane, Reguilón; Pogba, Kante, Eriksen; Neymar, Mbappé and Hazard. Someone has been playing an excessive amount of FIFA 19 this week…
