Former Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello his urged the club to move for Inter striker Mauro Icardi – ‘the most similar player to Cristiano Ronaldo’.
The Argentine striker has netted 114 goals in Serie A since moving to Italy in 2012 and finished as the league’s top scorer last season, scoring 29 times.
“I am a fan of Icardi, I like him,” Capello told Radio Rai, in quotes carried by Diario AS.
“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.”
Ronaldo left Madrid for Juventus this summer while Mariano Diaz returned to the European champions after spending a year at Olympique Lyonnais.
