Real Madrid’s planning in recent years has focused on young talent and excellent technical and physical conditions, conditions that have either enabled the first team to add extraordinary players, or have served to generate revenue with which to generate profit and economic returns. However, despite signing players of the calibre of Antonio Rüdiger and Aurelien Tchouameni, Real Madrid were unable to sign Kylian Mbappé.
In our last press collaboration, the MARCA newspaper, one of the most prestigious national and international Spanish-speaking newspapers, asked us to imagine a possible planning of four positions to reinforce – the two full-backs, midfield and striker – that would take into account a proven profile, immediate performance and great economic outlay, and another younger one, who would have the potential and personality necessary to be part of the squad of the 14-time European champion, knowing that the main name that the white team tries to recruit is none other than that of Jude Bellingham.
A report that you can consult here and in which names such as Milos Kerkez or Fran García, for whom Real Madrid has reserved an option to buy, for the left back, Reece James and Vinicius Tobias at right back, an 18-year-old Brazilian who is shining under Raúl González and who has important options to replace now or in the future Lucas and Carvajal.
In midfield, in addition to the name of Jude Bellingham, for whom big Premier League clubs will be bidding this summer, we point out profiles more related to the construction of play, precision in control and passing and the ability to play at two heights, both next to the midfielder and between lines, such as Bernardo Silva, who has not hidden the possibility of seeking a new challenge or Alexis Mac Allister, a somewhat different profile but of proven quality in the World Cup in Qatar. Two profiles that could arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu if Kroos and/or Modric do not renew their contracts.
In attack, the age of Benzema and the lack of a complementary profile after the non-arrival of Mbappé make the striker a position in need of reinforcements. In addition to Endrick, who will arrive in 2024, or Iker Bravo, a future option, we propose the name of Randal Kolo Muani as a major investment, a player with enormous technical and athletic conditions to complete an attack that often depends on the energy of Vinicius.
