Madrid list Ronaldo replacements

Real Madrid have drawn up a list of four players to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, should the Portuguese superstar leave at the end of the season.

Reports in El Pais today have claimed that Los Blancos would like to sell the 28-year-old in the summer, rather than see him depart on a Bosman once his deal ends in 2015.

And the same newspaper have revealed that the Santiago Bernabeu side are keeping tabs on four players to come in as his replacement.

Santos starlet Neymar is the number one target, despite fervent interest from Barcelona, whilst Tottenham's Gareth Bale would be the secondary option.

David Silva of Manchester City has also been listed as a potential target, with Isco seen as the long-term replacement from Malaga.

President Florentino Perez paid €94m for Ronaldo in 2009, and El Pais believe that the same amount could be available this time around as well for one, or maybe two of the names.
