Real Madrid Castilla have a number of young talents with great potential within the ranks. However, there could be an exodus of players this summer after Raul Gonzalez’s men failed to win promotion to La Liga 2.

The likes of Sergio Arribas, Rafa Marin, and Carlos Dotor, who have been regular fixtures for Castilla for the past couple of years, are set to be on their way out soon to continue their development at the highest level, given the lack of a clear pathway into the first team.

At the same time, some players will be given a chance to train with Carlo Ancelotti’s senior setup while continuing to play for Castilla in the upcoming campaign.

And, as per MARCA, Ancelotti has noted down four names – Nico Paz, Mario Martin, Alvaro Rodriguez, and Marvel as players who will be training with the first team but playing for Raul’s side so that they keep getting regular minutes under their belt.

Given that Joselu is the only natural striker at Ancelotti’s disposal at this moment, Alvaro, who made a decent impression with the seniors last season, is likely to see more opportunities in the upcoming season.

As for Nico Paz, the teenage attacking midfield prodigy is seen as one of the best young talents at the club and will see greater exposure with the first-team setup in the coming campaign.

Meanwhile, with Aurelien Tchouameni being the only out-and-out defensive midfielder in the senior squad, Mario Martin could get some chances, potentially in cup ties.

The same could hold true for Marvel, who will now likely be the fifth-choice centre-back for Ancelotti following the departure of Jesus Vallejo and the impending exit of Rafa Marin.

As mentioned earlier, the quartet will alternate training and playing between the first team and the Castilla outfit.

What is the price tag on Kylian Mbappe’s Real Madrid jersey?




Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
