INSIDER: Players want Real Madrid to sign Lukaku (& they're unhappy with Courtois)

Real Madrid senior players are urging president Florentino Perez to move for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

The likes of Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric believe the Belgian would be a perfect fit for coach Zinedine Zidane's system. What's more, they believe Thibaut Courtois' signing from Chelsea last summer was unnecessary.

That's according to Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, who was speaking on El Chiringuito.

"The players of Real Madrid believe they did not have to sign a goalkeeper last year, who they had to sign was a striker, and they tell me a lot about Lukaku," said Inda.

"Courtois was not liked by the squad, zero. They are to death with Keylor (Navas)."
