Fiorentino Perez said he was bringing in a new group of 'Galacticos'.

He was not kidding.

Real Madrid has added Karim Benzema to Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo in the Real Madrud summer haul, and now Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery wants to be next.

Real Madrid is adding Benzema for €35 million euros ($48.77 million), who joins a stable that has now surpassed $200 million in value. With Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Benzema and defender Raul Albiol already in the field, and Franck Ribery reportedly ready to join, Real Madrid is looking like the team to beat in Spain and the Champions League, though defending champions Barcelona will still have something to say about that.

So what does the new Real Madrid look like? Here is how the starting lineup could look:

—————-Benzema————-Raul———————

—–Kaka—————-Ribery—————Ronaldo——-

————————–Diarra——————————–

Yes, you can say it. WOW.

What do you think of Benzema joining REal Madrid? If Ribery signs, will Real Madrid become the new favorite to win all hardware in Europe next season? Still have questions about Real Madrid's defense? Still like Barcelona to repeat in the league and in Europe?
