Real Madrid are reportedly considering a bid for Leicester City’s in-form striker Jamie Vardy.
The gossip exudes from Spain’s Fichajes, who asserted this weekend the Foxes star – who has 10 goals in 10 matches this season – is needed by Rafa Benitez as a go down to Karim Benzema.
Portraying Vardy as “one of the disclosures of the season”, the distribution recommend that Real Madrid need another absolute focus forward – something which they have been missing following the takeoff of Gonzalo Higuain.
They portray Vardy as being “at the top of his forces” at 28 years old – while additionally recognizing the exceptional certainty that Vardy was playing in the seventh level of English football only five years prior with Stocksbridge Steels.
To fans in England, Vardy seems the archetype of the journeyman who has stumbled into a bit of form; but is there any reason that he shouldn’t bang goals in at the Bernabeu just as he has been at the King Power Stadium? Transfermarkt lists his value at a mere £4.2 million, though the Foxes would no doubt want more for the player who is their best chance of keeping their wondrous start to the season going.
Real Madrid has moved to the top of this season’s La Liga table. The injured Benitez’s side is in complete control to face any opposition this season. With the likes of Ronaldo’s form back in action, the manager of Real must be highly satisfied.
