How good is Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi? Would it be worth it to sign him? Is he good enough to make up for his explosive character? Those are the questions Real Madrid are asking themselves right now, according to La Sexta.

This doesn't mean that Real Madrid will show interest in Icardi or make an offer for him, obviously. Icardi is an interesting prospect who is still developing as a player, but he has problems off-the-field and Real Madrid don't know whether it would be worthy to have him on board or not.

Real Madrid need to find a backup striker even if Karim Benzema stays with the club, unless Rafa Benítez moves Cristiano Ronaldo to the striker position and then give Benzema a reserve role, something that doesn't seem very likely for a player of Benzema's status. Los Blancos will not make a move for Chicharito Hernández, and that's why they're taking a look at other players.
