    nah, zidane is a big fan of benzema. I dont think the nr. 9 position will change, maybe a decent backup. There will be changes in MF, wings, and the LB/RB maybe.

    Zidane was quite vocal about wanting another striker. Just as Benitez and Ancelotti before him. This is only Perez not wanting to get a support scorer to compete with average ass Benz and cause commotion.
    Pretty sure it's part of the deal for him coming back. No way he would without assurance of transfers.

    Basically two average scorers may suffice.

    Tbh, there are very few wide goalscorers available, so how about a 4-4-2? Benzema in his usual support role, along a goalscoring striker?

    Benzema isnt going anywhere, so might as well take that into consideration.

    That could work in zidane's system who could just cross for the two strikers

    There's hardly any constant Zidane system. He experimented with diamond, 4-3-3, 4-4-2.. most offensive lineups we already used. He tailors it to players he has in form. Isco barely played in 15/16 and then he had that game against Atleti, where we moved to a diamond since to exploit our WBs. Then back to 4-3-3 after Isco faded in 17/18.

    We just need to make sure players who really cannot lead and self-motivated are not cornerstones to us winning. That was the let down last season and what Zidane wanted to improve. He knew it'd be that much harder with Cristiano gone.

    Benzema will be there because no strikers available ? Benzema will be in madrid no matter who is available.

    Looks like we are in for Icardi, actually a realistic option.

    Nah. Not likely to deal with that nutjob of a wife only to give Benzema someone to worry about that wouldn't be somebody unlikely to become a regular starter.
    Gotta massage that wimpy ego of his.
