Zinedine Zidane led his team to a double this season, and the victory was historic in many ways it was the first time since 1958 that they won the Spanish league title and Champions League.
On Saturday Real Madrid became the first team to retain their Champions League trophy in the competition’s expanded format, demonstrated their power over the rest of Europe.
Real Madrid is the team that always score in abundance. They found the net in every single one of the 60 matches they played this season. However, the goals have come from all over and it was only Cristiano Ronaldo who has been consistently reliable, scoring 10 goals in the Champions League quarter-finals, semi-finals and final showing his true worth, this also goes on to show how dependent Madrid are on his finishing touch.
BBC strike force is diminishing, with Karim Benzema working hard but not particularly potent in front of the goal alongside Ronaldo, while consistent injuries have spoiled Gareth Bale’s season.
Madrid is linked to a move for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid MVP Ronaldo may have a new partner next season.
While arch rivals Barcelona set to strengthen their squad in the summer market, Madrid would do well to ensure they don’t lack behind. Given their phenomenal recent record in Europe they have enough silverware in their cabinet to convince almost any player they want to join.
