CR7 replacement IN REAL MADRID
New manager, Julen Lopetegui has decided to promote Spanish forward, Marco Asensio as CR7 replacement in the team.
Before now, a host of names have been linked with Real Madrid, including Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Eden Hazard.
Hazard openly admitted he would like a move to Real but Chelsea have refused to sell, placing a £177.9million price tag on him, to scare buyers away.
Spanish newspaper, Marca reports that for this reason, Lopetegui has assessed his squad over pre-season and decided on how he will replace Ronaldo with Asensio.
The newspaper claimed that Lopetegui would rather use Asensio in his front three than spend a “ludicrous sum” on Hazard.
Real Madrid have also accepted the fact that Neymar will not be joining the club this summer.
