The Spanish giants have marked out the Frenchman and the Belgian as their primary targets for the next campaign. They see Pogba and Hazard as the final piece in the jigsaw for the team.
There were questions as to the need for a new number nine. However, Benzema has risen up to stake his claim. The truth is that Benzema- all the while that Ronaldo was at the club- played a sort of ‘second fiddle’ role to the Portuguese, acting as his major supplier and this worked a great deal because Benzema is unselfish. With CR7 now gone, Benzema has been doing well even during the slump of his side. So, that has quieted down the argument for a replacement, at least for the time being.
The board will now be, together with Zidane, considering who goes out and who comes in. some things are clear though. Kroos and CAsemiro would most likely be going out. Hazard and Pogba would be primary targets
