Young striker Alvaro Rodriguez has been turning heads at the South American U20 Championship, where he recently scored a hat-trick for Uruguay in their Group B match against Bolivia.
This impressive performance has put him in joint-first place for the tournament's Golden Boot, and has earned him attention from the Real Madrid first team.
With Karim Benzema's age and increased injury risk, the club is in need of reinforcements in the attacking front. And with no incoming transfers expected in January, Real Madrid may look to promote Rodriguez to the first team.
His ability and potential have proven to be a valuable asset for the club, and he could be the key to helping Real Madrid overcome their injury struggles.
