Real Madrid eye Tottenham Hotspur star Cristian Romero to address defensive woes

Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero has been subject to links with Real Madrid following his impressive performances at White Hart Lane in the recently concluded season, per ESPN.

Real Madrid are coming on back of a UEFA Champions League winning season, however, they have a young squad at disposal as of now. With a young squad comes responsibilities in the veteran players to lead the team both on and off the pitch, nurturing and guiding the emerging talent to maintain the club’s legacy of excellence. 

While they have a talent group of roster, they miss a Sergio Ramos-esque aggressive presence on the pitch, and that is something the Argentine can bring to Santiago Bernabeau. This is something Carlo Ancelotti will be looking to fill this summer, especially with current club captain Nacho set to depart in the off-season.
