‘Mature’ Real Madrid wonderkid ready for important role in Ancelotti’s plans

The departure of Casemiro to Manchester United has left a hole in the Real Madrid midfield department. That, coupled with the fact that Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are getting older by the day, means that other players will need to step up at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Aurelien Tchouameni was brought in this summer to learn from and eventually replace Casemiro. But the Frenchman has now been thrust into the spotlight sooner than expected.

At the same time, Tchouameni’s compatriot Eduardo Camavinga could also be set for an important role in manager Carlo Ancelotti’s plans moving forward this season, reports MARCA.

The 19-year-old wonderkid arrived at Real Madrid last summer from Rennes but endured a slow start as Ancelotti opted to ease him into the team after a couple of missteps early in his tenure with the Merengues.

Over time, though, Camavinga started to prove his quality, making valuable contributions off the bench towards the final phase of the season as Real Madrid went on to bag the La Liga and the UEFA Champions League crowns.

Now, as per the report, there is a feeling within the club that Camavinga is a more ‘mature’ player and will now have a much bigger role to play this season, as indicated by the fact that the 19-year-old started both Real Madrid’s first two league games against Almeria and Celta Vigo.

It is stated that Ancelotti sees Camavinga as a very important player and plans to utilise him much more frequently than in the last season, as he tries to rotate Kroos and Modric.

It is expected that the French ace could be in line to start his third game in a row when Los Blancos face Espanyol this coming Sunday.

Since joining Real Madrid from Rennes last year, Camavinga has featured 42 times for the club, scoring and assisting two goals apiece. The teenage sensation has shown his potential and quality in his short time at the club and could be given more opportunities to do so this season.

The current edition of the Real Madrid squad is full of young talents, who have shown remarkable potential in recent years.

Arda Guler is among the young players looking to make a mark in European football in the years to come.

The young Turk joined Real Madrid earlier this summer, rejecting many other European giants in the process.

Toni Kroos mentoring Guler at Real Madrid

Guler has not enjoyed the best of starts to his life at Santiago Bernabeu, as he is spending a brief time on the sidelines due to an injury.

However, Guler has not stopped working on his characteristics, as he looks to kickstart his Real Madrid career on a positive note.

To that end, the former Fenerbahce starlet is receiving some key support from one of Real Madrid’s midfield pillars in the form of Toni Kroos.

This is according to MARCA, which suggests that the German international is mentoring Guler in his early days at Santiago Bernabeu.

Kroos: huge ‘sponsor’ of Guler

The report highlights how Toni Kroos is a huge admirer of Arda Guler. The German had even heaped praise on the youngster from Turkey when he joined the club earlier in the summer.

Guler, therefore, is closely training with Kroos, whose years of experience, composure, and knowledge of football, could help the youngster grow at Santiago Bernabeu.

This fits in well with Carlo Ancelotti’s vision at Real Madrid, as the Italian boss wants youngsters to have room to grow, especially with guidance from some of the older guards in the team.

It is one of the key reasons Real Madrid wanted to stick to Kroos and Luka Modric, despite bringing in Arda Guler and Jude Bellingham in the summer.

Guler, therefore, has the stage set for him to start his Real Madrid career on a strong note. After impressing in training, the next step for the youngster is to make a promising debut, which is just around the corner.
