Federico Valverde Modrić's Successor

January 24, 2020

In the last transfer window, there was a big interest from Real Madrid to purchase Manchester United's Paul Pogba, probably as a successor to the aging Luka Modrić. But after half of a season that he shows his importance to the team, no one has a doubt, Federico Valverde is the man to count on. It is not a secret that Real Madrid was afraid from the day they will need to replace Luka Modrić. The Croatian was one of Madrid's most important players during their European golden age, when they won 3 consecutive UEFA Champions League titles. Nevertheless, it seems that this time has come, Modrić is 34 now, and having a decrease in his ability. Madrid's manager, Zinedine Zidane wanted to sign Paul Pogba in the last transfer window, but since he failed to do so, he needed to find another solution to the problem, solution that will be known at a later time as Federico Valverde. Similar to Modrić, Valverde is a box to box midfielder, with high work rate in both defense and attack. On the defensive aspect of his game, Valverde is a great pressing player.

Gareth Bales future at Real Madrid

July 24, 2019

There are a lot of different views on the Welshman. Never the less, we should all be grateful for what he has done for our club. Most likely his most popular moment at Real, was his goal against Barcelona in the 2014 Copa del Rey final. The goal he scores is most likely one of the most famous moments in an El Clasico match. Then Bale went on to score two winning goals in two different Champions League finals. Some people want Bale to stay in Madrid to finish his career and others do not. The more likely situation to happen is Real Madrid will sell Bale before the summer ends, before we discuss some possible moves, where exactly did Gareths career take a turn in the opposite direction of where we wanted? Gareth has been involved with 167 goals, scoring 102 of them, and assisting 65. Gareth played 231 matches for the white and for how many goals he has been involved with these really aren't terrible sats. So if being a player that can help provide goals what is the problem with keeping the forward?

The Future of Madrid

July 23, 2019

An underrated thing that Madrid has been overlooked for is the fact of how well we do of bringing in young talents, saying this what could we expect in the next five years or so? First off is our defense, For the left-back position, we have two options considering that Sergio reguilón comes back from his season loan from Sevilla. Besides Sergio, we had an amazing chance to sign World Cup winner Ferland Mendy. Ferland played at Lyon for about two years until we signed him on a six-year deal for €48 million. Ferland and Sergio both have the potential to become the two of best left backs in the world with how consistent they are on the pitch. Sergio played very well under Lopetegui and Solari, and him being gone for a loan at Sevilla who finished 6th in Laliga for the 2018/19 season may be a great opportunity for himself, and Ferland to get used to the squad and coaching staff. Then onto Center back we have another World Cup winner Raphael Varane.

Summer Changes

April 27, 2019

For most fans, I think we can agree when we say that the season has been beyond slow and painful. Hopefully, things are going to change especially with the ginormous budget Perez gave Zidane of 300£. Here are some changes we should be expecting this summer. Who to Buy: Hazard- For how many little hints to Zidane being his idol as a child and Madrid being his dream club I wouldn't be surprised at all if he ends up joining in the summer. I do think he would be a great signing for us to get back on our feet. (Left Wing/Striker) Luka jović- Frankfurt director (Fredi Bobic) reports this transfer as ‘a real possibility’, the Serbian Striker has been eyeing a move to the club and has 26 goals in all appearances this season. The signing of him would mean no return for de Tomás. The Spanish International has been on a loan at Rayo Vallecano for the past season and has 14 goals over 30 appearances in La Liga.

A Brief Look into Real Madrid’s Summer Window Transfer Targets Ryan Rogers

May 30, 2019

As a Madrid fan, transfer rumours aren’t something you see flair up out of nowhere when the summer rolls around. They are an everyday occurrence, something apart of the club’s DNA due to its history, trophies, and consistent quest for greatness in Europe. Galacticos have come and gone, bringing trophies with them and eventually leaving as legends. At the turn of the century, newly appointed President, Florentino Perez, implemented a new transfer policy with the goal of bringing in the world’s biggest stars to bring Real Madrid back to the peak of European glory. The same occurred in 2009 when Perez bought Benzema, Ronaldo, and Kaka to be the catalysts of a new Galactico Era. With the 2018/19 season winding down and the transfer rumours in full swing, I think it’s fair to say that Madridistas could be about to witness a Summer revolution similar to that of 2009.
