South America has produced a pool of exciting footballing talents in recent years, including Real Madrid stars Endrick and Rodrygo.

The likes of Enzo Fernandez, Julian Alvarez and Vitor Roque also make the cut. And it appears the conveyor belt of talents is showing signs of stopping, with Matias Soule fast emerging as the next big thing in Argentine football.

Currently plying his trade for Frosinone, on loan from Juventus, Soule has made an extraordinary breakthrough in Serie A this season, racking up 28 league appearances while scoring 10 goals.

A winger by trade, Soule’s performances have led to widespread speculation over his future, with many expecting him to join a top club in the coming summer.

The 20-year-old, though, appears to have his heart set on joining one particular club – Real Madrid.

“My dream is to play for Real Madrid. I always dreamed of it as a kid,” said Soule during an interview on ESPN who was initially a product of the Velez Sarsfeld youth academy.

Real Madrid, though, have not been linked with a move for Soule as of now. The Spanish giants are more occupied with the pursuit of top targets such as Kylian Mbappe, Alphonso Davies and Leny Yoro right now.

That is perhaps why Real Madrid have recently rejected the chance to sign Manchester City superstar Bernardo Silva this summer.

Nevertheless, Matias Soule could be an interesting prospect for Real Madrid to monitor. The youngster has shown tremendous potential and can add some serious depth to the club’s attack.

For the time being, though, Real Madrid are unlikely to make any move for Soule.

Revealed: The blueprint behind Real Madrid’s €1 Billion revenue ambition

As one of football’s biggest and most successful institutions, Real Madrid enjoy serious perks on the economic front. After all, they cater to a worldwide audience and thus see their remunerations come in from across borders.

The arrival of Kylian Mbappe will only serve to further grow Los Blancos’ fanbase, and with a generational squad set to dominate world football for the years to come, Florentino Perez sees a special marketing opportunity.

According to reports from SPORT, Real Madrid have thus set themselves a target to hit €1 billion in revenue and have drawn up a concrete plan for the same.

The player aspect

As a football institution, one of the most significant aspects of remuneration is the team’s direct winnings in terms of prize money. Having won the Champions League last season and with Mbappe coming in, the team is in safe hands.

Moreover, the average age of Real Madrid’s squad is just 27.1 years implies that the team has significant longevity with little change expected in personnel.

The second important aspect that the club hopes to count on is the crowd-pulling factor that such young players exert on the new generation.

Real Madrid already boast 410.9 million followers on social media and have added 48.4 million just last year. Mbappe, who himself has 132 million followers across Instagram and X, will further amplify that number next season and add to the club’s followers.

It is thus clear that the Frenchman will become the face of the club and the centre for all marketing operations of Real Madrid plan.

The road to €1 billion is thus not complicated, although Perez must be wary that Mbappe is picky with the brands he endorses. Further, the distribution of image rights will be a major factor to finalise.

The new Bernabeu

Having undergone extensive renovation, the New Santiago Bernabeu will take over as the world’s highest-grossing football stadium next season and play a massive role in boosting Real Madrid’s collections. The partnership with Sixth Street and Legends will also be crucial.

Furthermore, the new venue will also serve as a massive economy generator through miscellaneous events. Apart from Taylor Swift, the club also has agreements with Karol G, Aitana, Lola Indigo and La Velada del Ano de Ibai Llanos for exclusive events.

Needless to say, such events will serve significantly to boost the income and near the elusive €1 billion mark.

Cost-cutting

The final, yet critical manoeuvre Perez plans is to cut the costs on the wage front with a salary reduction of €0% already being made in both 2019-20 and 2020-21. That was, in fact, one of the major reasons Real Madrid stayed on their feet in the pandemic.

Player sales is another element where the men in white have worked their plan, getting rid of the older players while their market value was still high and reinvesting the cash into younger talents who can serve for at least the next decade.

The club recorded north of €800 million in income last year and the €1 billion mark is not too far off. Needless to say, the coming year could thus be special for the men in white.
