Rayo Vallecano midfielder Santi Comesana has admitted Real Madrid’s summer signing Aurelien Tchouameni has made Casemiro’s loss next to unnoticeable with his stunning performances this season.

Rayo host an injury-ridden Real Madrid at Estadio de Vallecas on Monday, November 7 with the hope of maintaining their stature of being the giant killers. Unfortunately enough for the team, they have only beaten the defending champions once in this century.

But given Real’s issue at hand, not only Comesana but even his coach Andoni Iraola admitted that his team does stand a chance. Speaking ahead of the game, the Rayo star pointed out that his players are concerned mostly because of the form their opponents are in at the moment.

“We are all concerned because everyone is doing very well,”  Comesana told MARCA.

“Benzema is now injured, but for me, he is the best. In addition, he was Ballon d’Or recently. Vinicius is at a great level and Rodrygo and Valverde have a lot of goals. 

Meanwhile, Tchouameni, 22, has been a vital member of Carlo Ancelotti’s team in only his debut season, having clocked 1,132 minutes across all competitions. Speaking about the midfielder, Comesana added, 

“Tchouameni has also managed to make Casemiro’s loss not noticeable at all. We will have to fight as a team and with the help of our fans, we will surely do a good job.”

When asked about his team’s chances of beating the European and Spanish champions, the Rayo Vallecano ace said,

“You can get beat all the teams. It is true that Madrid is very good, but they can be beaten. 

“We are a very brave team, who are motivated by these games and I think we can get our hands on them. There is no secret formula to beat them because other teams would have already applied, but there are ways to hurt Madrid,” he added.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
