It’s safe to say that Federico Valverde is in the form of his life so far in the 2022/2023 season.

Much like during the latter stages in the Champions League last term, the Uruguayan international is operating as a right-winger currently as well.

However, the 24-year-old has reached unseen levels in a Real Madrid shirt this campaign, to the extent that Toni Kroos took to Twitter after his side’s 3-1 win in El Clasico to say that his teammate is amongst the three best players in the world.

Shining in the month of October, Valverde has been nominated for the La Liga Player of the Month award, alongside the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Antoine Griezmann, Joselu, Brais Mendez, Isaac Palazon and Sergio Leon.

The multifaceted superstar scored three goals in five league matches for Los Merengues during the month and was quite easily his side’s standout player.

Winning the prestigious award for his incredible contributions for the month of September as well, Valverde has a strong shout of taking it home once again.

Matching his all-encompassing displays with goal and assist numbers, Fede Valverde is simply taking La Liga by storm as he spearheads his side’s title defence.

Turkish giants to go all-out to sign Real Madrid outcast – report



There is no way back for Eden Hazard at Real Madrid. The Belgian international has not given the management any reason to have faith in his abilities over his past four seasons at the club and is unsurprisingly the most important departure for the Merengues in the summer.

Hazard has one more year on his contract in Madrid. However, it is clear that Carlo Ancelotti does not trust him and that any potential replacement manager in the summer will echo his stance.

According to reports from Mundo Deportivo, Fenerbahce are willing to go all out to sign Hazard this summer. The Turkish side have made the former Chelsea their prime target, yet face a steep task ahead of them.

The 32-year-old is hellbent on seeing out his contract with Los Blancos despite seeing his career sink right before his eyes. It thus becomes complicated for the party to lure away the forward, especially in a competition outside Europe’s top five leagues.

Fenerbahce attempted to sign the winger in the recently concluded winter transfer market. They reached an agreement with Real Madrid but failed to get over the line as they could not convince the player of the move.

The biggest obstacle for the Turkish side will be convincing Hazard to make the move by letting go of his lucrative contract in Madrid. The chances are slim, but not impossible.

Hazard has made just three league appearances and one start for Ancelotti’s side this season in La Liga, a steep fall from last season’s 18 and seven respectively.

His last appearance for the team came back in January when Real Madrid faced Cacereno in the Copa del Rey. In La Liga however, he last played in September 2022 in a 4-1 win over Mallorca.
