Rafael Benitez has taken over at Real Madrid and the work for the ex-Liverpool boss begins immediately.

Real are still smarting from a season that has seem them end empty-handed whilst arch-rivals Barcelona have secured at least a domestic double.

President Florentino Perez is never going to be happy about that so expect him to bankroll another summer of spending at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Benitez has to get his transfers spot on so let's take a look at three players that he might like to bring in for the 2015/16 season.

Sergio Aguero

Quite what fans of the club would make of an ex-Atletico Madrid player joining their ranks is unknown, but there is little doubt that Aguero remains one of the world's best strikers.

Manchester City will fight tooth and nail to hold onto their star man, but the lure of restoring some pride to the white half of Madrid may be too good to turn down.

If Aguero makes noises to leave, then expect a transfer fee at anywhere near €100m to be a start point for negotiations.

City don't need the money, but Real need the player. Rainy Manchester or balmy Madrid Sergio?

We all know the answer...

Marek Hamsik

Although Real are well stocked in the midfield areas, Benitez is a confirmed admirer of Hamsik.

Napoli will be none too pleased at the thought of their old boss plundering their well of talent but the fact remains that Hamsik was close to leaving the club six months ago in any event.

In order to accommodate the Slovak international, it's likely that one player will need to leave the Bernabeu.

With Isco known to be unhappy at a lack of match time, the former "Golden Boy" could be on his way out of the club.

Raheem Sterling

It's worth noting that Benitez was still the manager when Sterling was signed at Liverpool from Queen's Park Rangers.

Although the Spaniard left shortly afterwards, he will have been aware of the talented youngster and nothing Sterling has done since will have dissuaded him that this is a player destined for the very top.

If Aguero proves impossible to buy from Manchester City, then Sterling represents a decent alternative.

Importantly it's understood that the player himself wouldn't be averse to the move and is intent on forcing through a transfer from the Reds.
