Real Madrid keen on new striker

Mourinho has previously this summer tried to bring in a new defender but will not be looking for a new striker as well.

“Apart from signing a new defender, I also want to add another forward to the team. A new attacker would be very much welcome. I’d rather have one more forward than being short of options up front,” Mourinho told AS.

“I currently have Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema for the striker position, while Cristiano Ronaldo could also play there. However, I prefer to give him a bit more freedom on the pitch. He’s too talented to have him up front all the time.”
