Former Real Madrid manager, Fabio Capello, has urged the club to sign Inter Milan striker, Mauro Icardi as replacement for forward, Cristiano Ronaldo in the January transfer window.
Ronaldo left Madrid as their all-time highest goalscorer to join the Serie A champions last summer in a 100-million-euro deal.
Capello believes that Icardi plays similar style of football like Ronaldo and that the Champions League holders should sign the 25-year-old.
“I am a fan of Icardi, I like him,” Capello told Radio Rai.
“Real Madrid should make him their priority to be signed, because he is the most similar player to Cristiano Ronaldo and is deadly in the penalty box.
“He is the player Ronaldo has been in recent years and Icardi is someone who has that movement and feel for the goal.”
Icardi has a record of 112 goals in 190 appearances for Inter so far.
