17-year-old Swedish wonderkid dreams of playing for Real Madrid
Real Madrid are arguably the biggest independent institution in the world of football. The Spanish giants are considered to be the pinnacle of the sport, and unsurprisingly the dream club for many.
Roony Bardghji is one of Sweden’s most rapidly rising young stars touted to be the next big thing in his nation. The midfielder of FC Copenhagen recently gave an interview where he spoke about the club he most desired to represent. As quoted by Mundo Deportivo, he said:
“The dream is, of course, to take the next step to the major leagues, clubs, and tournaments. The club I want to end up in? I want to play for Real Madrid and stay for many years.”
He went on to reveal his massive ambitions, and said that nothing short of being the best in the world would satisfy him.
“My goal is to become the best football player in the world. I’ve had that in me since I was little and no one can stop me except myself,” the 17-year-old Swedish wonderkid said.
The youngster is a technically gifted player who can operate both as a midfielder and a forward. His left foot is usually the source of his lethal goals, but he is more than capable of inflicting damage with his right boot as well.
At the moment, Real Madrid are well equipped in the department and have their eyes focused on Jude Bellingham who they see as the final piece in the puzzle.
Nevertheless, Roony Bardghji could still push for a move to the Bernabeu if he continues his high-level displays and catches the eyes of the Real Madrid scouts.

Official: Real Madrid starting lineup against Elche
The Santiago Bernabeu is ready for the first time in a fortnight as Real Madrid are set to host relegation-threatened Real Valladolid for gameweek 27 of La Liga. The gap between them and Barcelona was increased to 15 yesternight, and los blancos will be looking to cut it down to 12 to scarce the tiniest bit of hope of defending their league crown.
Carlo Ancelotti has opted to use a highly attacking starting lineup for the clash, with Karim Benzema spearheading the front-three. He is flanked by Marco Asensio on the right while Vinicius Jr retains his place on the left.
Rodrygo also gets the nod to start, probably as an attacking midfielder in what looks like a 4-2-3-1.
Aurelien Tchouameni has been given the nod in midfield, with Toni Kroos forming the double pivot alongside him.
With Antonio Rudiger, Ferland Mendy, and Nacho out injured, Eduardo Camavinga gets the license to start as the left-back, while Lucas Vazquez flanks the defence from the right. The usual suspects — Eder Militao and David Alaba — start in central defence.
Thibaut Courtois was a doubt heading into this game, but has been given the medical greenlight to take his place as the goalkeeper.
Madrid XI: Courtois; Vazquez, Militao, Alaba, Camavinga; Tchouameni, Kroos; Asensio, Rodrygo, Vinicius; Benzema
