Re-signing Varane and 3 more possible centre-back crisis solutions – one is most likely

Real Madrid are going to act after David Alaba has picked up a season-ending injury.

Here are the four solutions they could resort to.

1. Signing Goncalo Inacio

Why it could happen:

- there were serious rumours even before Alaba got sidelined;

- Real Madrid initially considered going for the Portuguese in January.

Why it's unlikely to happen:

- the player's release clause is €60m and Real Madrid do not want to spend much next month.

2. Signing Leny Yoro

Why it could happen:

- Yoro is a hot prospect who could already break into Real Madrid's starting eleven – exactly what Carlo Ancelotti wants;

- the club reportedly consider him 'the new Raphael Varane'.

Why it's unlikely to happen:

- he would cost Real Madrid €50m which is not significantly less than Inacio's release clause.

3. Re-signing Raphael Varane

Why it could happen:

- the Frenchman barely receives any game time at Manchester United;

- reliable Arancha Rodriguez says it's one of the options.

Why it's unlikely to happen:

- Real Madrid rarely seek help of former players – the page is turned already.

4. Recalling Rafa Marin from loan

Why it could happen:

- this is the most viable option at the moment;

- the 21-year-old is among Alaves' top performers this season;

- multiple sources say it's a very possible scenario.
