Real Madrid star Ronaldo tells Florentino: Buy Hazard not Kane

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has concerns about president Florentino Perez's transfer plans this summer.

Ronaldo has told Perez he doesn't need to buy a new centre-forward, despite talks being at an advanced stage with both Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski.

Instead, Ronaldo believes Real should be seeking to sign a top class inside-forward, a player who can work off the Portuguese. Ronaldo feels he's now ready to play the coming seasons as an outright centre-forward for Real.

Ronaldo, reports Don Balon, has suggested several names Perez should be pursuing, including Paulo Dybala (Juventus), Goncalo Guedes (Valencia on-loan from PSG) and even Eden Hazard (Chelsea).

Ronaldo is arguing that Real would make a bigger step in improvement by signing such a versatile attacker, rather than a centre-forward to act as primarily his backup.
