Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Eder Militao are three youngsters who defined Real Madrid’s historic 2021/22 season in their own way. However, hiding in the shadows of their glory is another Brazilian who has struggled to find luck at the Santiago Bernabeu – Renier Jesus.

Reinier seemed to have adapted to life at the Castilla but struggled to earn opportunities to break through. Moreover, the COVID break exactly at that time did not help his case.

According to reports from Sergio Gomez, Roma have enquired about the possibility of signing the attacking midfielder. There has been no contact between the parties, but the interest has been recorded.

The Brazilian returns to Real Madrid after completing his loan spell at Borussia Dortmund later this month. With Carlo Ancelotti not counting on the player for the immediate season, Los Blancos wish to send him on another loan.

Reinier did not enjoy a great spell in Germany, starting just one game and making 13 appearances in the entire league season.

Benfica were said to be in the driver’s seat to sign the 20-year-old on loan this summer. In fact, the player’s father confirmed it directly when he spoke to the media last week.

“My son is is very excited and enthusiastic, when a club the size of Benfica wants you, it is impossible to not be happy.”

It remains to be seen if Roma’s interest beings about a twist in the tale. Nevertheless, it would require talks to start between the parties for such a situation to arise.

Federico Valverde, the dynamic midfielder for Real Madrid, is once again on the cusp of adapting to a new role under the guidance of coach Carlo Ancelotti, reports Mario Calderon for Mundo Deportivo

Valverde’s remarkable versatility has been a key asset for Real Madrid, allowing him to excel in various positions on the field. This adaptability has been crucial for the team, and it seems another transformation is on the horizon for the 25-year-old Uruguayan.

The team chances and so does Valverde

His potential shift in role comes amid changes within the team, notably the reassignment of the number ‘8’ shirt to Toni Kroos. 

The German midfielder’s responsibility for constructing the game will likely be shared among several players to ensure a seamless transition.

Here, Valverde’s ability to quickly grasp new concepts will be a significant advantage for both him and Ancelotti. Even during the current period, with many players still absent, Ancelotti is already strategizing on how to best integrate everyone into the team dynamics without compromising performance.

Marcelo Bielsa must be credited

Valverde’s recent experiences with the Uruguayan national team in the Copa America under coach Marcelo Bielsa have further honed his skills. 

Bielsa entrusted Valverde with the captain’s armband and deployed him in a deeper role, where he was responsible for initiating plays from the back alongside his teammate, PSG’s young pivot, Manuel Ugarte. 

This experience has enriched Valverde’s understanding of the game, adding another layer to his already impressive skill set.

As the new season approaches, Valverde will need to re-establish himself in whatever role Ancelotti deems fit—be it as a winger, a pivot, or even a full-back, a position he has previously played under former coach Zinedine Zidane. 

Regardless of where he is positioned, Valverde’s importance to the team is undeniable. His versatility, coupled with his ability to adapt quickly, makes him a pivotal player for Real Madrid’s upcoming campaign.
