Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo represent the exact path Real Madrid wish to tread towards their future. The Brazilian duo joined the club at a tender age and found themselves in a drought for minutes initially.

Despite not having the best of starts to their careers in white, both the players persevered and fought through their worst. Now, they are a vital part of Carlo Ancelotti’s plans and seem to have secured their place in the squad.

The same path is hoped for Eduardo Camavinga and other youngsters in the team. Florentino Perez wishes for this to be the basis for the club’s long-term project, and is hence looking out for young talents with a high ceiling.

According to reports from Fichajes, Real Madrid have identified two players who satisfy the above criteria.

The first player is Enzo Fernandez. The 21-year-old is an undisputed starter for Gallardo’s River Plate and is also making a name for himself in the Argentine National Team.

Playing as an attacking midfielder, he has four goals and three assists in 11 games so far. He is currently valued at €6.5, a budget figure in today’s market.

The second player on the list is Domilson Cordeiro dos Santos or more widely known as, Dodo. The Shakhtar Donetsk player has proved to be defensive stable, yet creative and dynamic in the attack for his team at right-back.

At just 23 years of age, Dodo offers longevity and can be a contender to replace Dani Carvajal in the coming seasons.
