Foresight is the hallmark of great football administration, and Real Madrid undoubtedly boasts of the same.

Los Blancos have always remained two steps ahead of the crowd, planning their long-term future with impeccable detail.

It is, after all, for that reason that the club did not feel the void after the departures of Marcelo, Casemiro, Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos in recent years.

Planning for 2024-25

Looking ahead to the upcoming summer transfer window, Florentino Perez & co. are already clear on the names they hope to incorporate.

Madrid Universal understands that three players have been shortlisted for June, two of whom are widely known and discussed – Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies.

The third player Los Blancos see for the summer is Franco Mastantuono, Argentina’s 16-year-old gem who has taken large strides in recent times.

The signings of Mbappe and Davies are well on track, with the Merengues having an agreement in place with both players.

The winger will arrive on a free transfer, but the Canadian star’s signing is dependent on the negotiations with Bayern Munich.

Operation South America

Having already signed Brazil’s crown-jewel talent Endrick, Real Madrid now have their eyes on the Argentine market. Mastantuono, who currently plays for River Plate, and is widely regarded as the next big thing for his nation at just 16 years of age.

Despite his age, the player can directly join Real Madrid next summer as he reportedly possesses a European passport. The club only need to meet his release clause of €45 million, and that appears likely given Perez’s priority list.

The only question that remains is whether Los Blancos will also go all out for a young centre-back like Leny Yoro.

The coming weeks will be critical in deciding the same, but the arrivals of Mbappe and Davies appear to be on track while serious efforts will likely be made for Mastantuono’s signing as well.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
