Speaking after Germany’s 3-3 draw against England (h/t DW Sports), Thomas Muller claimed that the national team would do well to follow in the footsteps of Real Madrid and develop a mentality like the Merengues.

Real Madrid, under Carlo Ancelotti last season, came back from situations when they seemed to be down and out on more than one occasion to lift the La Liga title and the UEFA Champions League trophy.

The sheer mental strength and the never give up attitude that Real Madrid showed over the course of the campaign was the driving force behind the success as they beat the odds to win from extremely difficult positions against the likes of PSG, Chelsea and Manchester City.

And, Muller has claimed that he wishes Germany can follow Real Madrid as an example as they get set for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year.

On Monday, Germany were ahead of England 2-0 at one point before allowing the Three Lions to make a comeback and take a 3-2 lead. However, a late equaliser meant that they could salvage a point.

And, Muller then claimed that Die Mannschaft should try and follow Real Madrid as an example as they prepare for the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar which will get underway in November.

“Maybe Real Madrid are an example to us. I’ve played for a lot of coaches, including Carlo Ancelotti, who has won the most trophies. After things that don’t go well, it’s all about getting back up and keeping your confidence. We’d do well to follow that,” he said.

Following their all-conquering campaign last time out, Real Madrid have made a 100% start to the new season and have won all their nine matches across all competitions so far. Following the international break, they will resume the defence of their La Liga crown against Osasuna.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
