It would appear that Madrid fans are hard to please. Despite the recent arrival of Zinedine Zidane, for a world record transfer of £48 million, 94.6 % of fans are still demanding the arrival of more new faces.
Many names have been linked to the Spanish giants over the summer, but the only arrival has been French maestro Zidane.
The main area of concern appears to be in defence.
Fernando Hierro (pictured) is approaching the autumnal stage of his career and the club have yet to find a replacement, let alone an ideal partner for the centre back role.
Alessandro Nesta is the player Madrid tried to bring in, but Lazio refused to sell, and the Italian international did not want to leave Roma either.
The right wing back role has been an unhappy one for Real players, with Geremi and Michel Salgado both failing to live up to expectations. Inter's Javier Zanetti had been linked to a move to Santiago Bernabeu, but this fell through.
However, fans were happy with the goalkeeping situation. According to the results of the survey, both Iker Casillas and Cesar have that area well covered. There is also little concern about the attacking line-up.
