Real Madrid's third signing involves Argentine ace

Real Madrid's third target of the current transfer window revealed

Cristiano Ronaldo's departure will force Florentino Pérez to splash cash, and one former target will be sought out one more time to fill the striker's void.

Real Madrid fans know it won't be easy to replace Cristiano Ronaldo's goalscoring tally of each season, and that seems to be the general feeling among the team's hierarchy.

With Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois being tipped as the team's top signings of this window, president Florentino Pérez wants to add a third top-caliber transfer to the mix, and according to Diario Gol, the main target will be a Serie A striker.

That man is none other than Mauro Icardi. Diario Gol's sources indicate that Tottenham's reluctance to sell Harry Kane has forced Florentino Pérez to look elsewhere, and while Paulo Dybala and Robert Lewandowski were also named as potential targets, Icardi's price would be the main reason to pursue his signing.

Icardi has driven Italian defenders crazy for the past few years, and his addition could be just what Los Blancos need to boost their attack, considering that Gareth Bale will be the team's reference up front. Furthermore, Icardi's arrival could put up even more pressure on Karim Benzema, who could also be leaving the club this summer due to his poor goalscoring display last season.

The Argentinian striker was left out of the World Cup due to his complicated relationship with some of La Albiceleste's leaders, especially Lionel Messi. His skills in front of goal are a force to be reckoned with, but will he fit in Julen Lopetegui's tactics?
