Real Madrid have officially completed their fourth transfer of the season, signing Esther González from Levante.

The 28-year-old striker is in the prime of her career and reached her peak last season, scoring 30 goals in 34 appearances. She was on track to win the Pichichi until Barcelona’s Jenni Hermoso stole the accolade on the final day.

It will be interesting to see if her scoring rate sustains in the All-White kit. Not only has she never come close to reaching her 2020/21 heights in seasons prior, she might also have to compete against Nahikari García and possibly Kosovare Asllani for a spot in the eleven.

There is some chance that David Aznar looks to play all three together — possibly in a 4-4-2 diamond — but it is unlikely all can be accommodated as regular starters when winger Marta Cardona was easily Madrid’s best player in the recently-finished campaign.
