Alexis will pot some for sure, but after that David Villa is a question mark along with Pedro. Cesc and Iniesta and Afellay will play up top at certain points, but neither of these are poachers.

Madrid has Higuian, Benzema and Callejon who are pure strikers, and then you have CR7 amd DiMaria on thw wings who have absolutely no trouble shooting from anywhere outside the box.

Btw, what would Madrid do with Modric or Witzel? Who do they replace? Ozil? Kaka?
I'd imagine that they would want Witzel as a future replacement for Xabi Alonso. Modric on the other hand would mean rotation and system tweaks galore. Each of Khedira, Modric and Xabi are excellent players, and each is very different from the other two, giving Mourinho the flexibility to rotate heavily and tweak according to the opposition, sometimes going with Khedira and Xabi Alonso, sometimes Modric and Khedira, sometimes Modric and Xabi Alonso and sometimes all 3, taking off Di Maria and shifting Oezil out wide. Mourinho loves that ****.
