Neymar Jr Could be the hit of effect that needs the Real Madridafter a regrettable past season and a pre-season very desilusionante. The fans madridista is needed of good news and the signing of the Brazilian would be the best that could receive. No only it would be fichar to a súper crashes consecrated, also would be to remove him a signing to the FC Barcelona, that also conflict by him.

The arrival of the ex of the Saints to Santiago Bernabéu would do that the Madrid happened to have a trident of dream formed by the own Neymar, Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard. These three footballers yes would be qualified to compete with the súper trident that will form in the Barça Griezmann, Suárez and Messi. But to see to these three players in the eleven initial, Zinedine Zidane will have to do changes in his idea of game.

The madridistas are showing to be a very fragile team in defence along all the preparation. Include to Neymar in the eleven would suppose to strengthen the forward, but weaken at the same time a midfield that already of by yes does waters throughout to the hour to defend. 'Zizou' Would have to think very well his diagram of game to improve to the Brazilian and to his mates of attack without prejudicing the defensive phase.

The most recommended could be use a 4-1-2-1-2 in which Casemiro planted by in front of the central, Modric and Kroos by in front (to fault of other means that can arrive), Hazard in the mediapunta and Neymar in the delatera with Benzema. The triangle that would form the Frenchman, the Belgian and the Brazilian could be demoledor in attack, and in defence the three midfield players would have to commission to give him balance to the team. Precisely therefore, it would not be odd that Fede Valverde could go in with Casemiro to give him more defensive presence and play with a species of 4-2-1-1-2.

Another option could be play with the classical 4-3-3 and change to the right side to Eden Hazard. The Belgian is used to to play in the left, but with freedom of movements and Zidane could give him this same freedom in the another band. It could change positions with Ney, that would split of the left, but would be for seeing his adaptation. Besides, in defence it would be necessary to trust that so much the ex of Chelsea like the Brazilian did his work helping to the sides.

The diagram of three head offices, another option

Zidane tested against the Network Bull Salzburgo an alignment with three head offices, a 3-5-2 that it could fit well with the inclusion of Neymar. Casemiro Could play in the half with Kroos or even with Valverde to give him more strength to the defence, whereas Hazard would be in the mediapunta and Neymar and Benzema in the forward. In defence, the merengues would have to have care with the bands and the two mediocentros would have to do a lot of helps, but with the three head offices could win solidity in spite of this problem.

In definite, the hypothetical presence of Neymar could cause defensive problems in a Madrid that already does waters in defence. But the Brazilian would compensate these lagoons with goals, speed, desborde and leadership. It is one of the best of the world and would have to be Zidane the one who fit to the forward in the team to be able to aspire to win it everything.
