Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde are two names that headline Real Madrid’s next generation of midfielders. The duo have not disappointed in the minutes they have recieved this season and are undoubtedly a part of the club’s long term future.
However, Los Blancos being the greats they are, are already in pursuit of their next big signing in midfield. Fichajes reports that they have set their eyes on Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimaraes.
Guimaraes recently made the switch to Newcastle for a fee of €50 million. He has been one of Eddie Howe’s most trusted players and has scored three goals and provided one assist in just 13 games.
This incredible tally includes a 95th-minute winner against Leicester City. As it stands, a top-ten finish is looking more and more likely for Eddie Howe’s team.
Further, the player has also made his debut for the Brazilian National team and has already scored for the Selecao. Needless to say, he is seen as one of the brightest young talents in the game and is backed to have a bright future ahead.
The Brazilian international has a contract with the Premier League side that runs until the summer of 2026. With over four years left on his deal, it will be very difficult for Madrid to secure his signing, at least this summer.
Moreover, the fact that Newcastle United acquired him at a premium price means that Los Blancos will have to pay in excess of €50 million for his signing. With urgent signings required in the defensive line, that would appear unfeasible.
If Carlo Ancelotti’s find Guimaraes to be a difficult signing, the alternate names on the table include Youri Tielemans, Fabian Ruiz, and Jude Bellingham.
€85 million-rated Serie A winger ‘dreams’ of playing for Real Madrid, claims father
Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia dreams of playing for Spanish giants Real Madrid, the winger’s father has revealed following the UEFA Champions League clash between the two teams last night.
Kvaratskhelia, 22, exploded upon arriving at Napoli last year, leading them to the Serie A title on the back of his explosive performances.
The Georgian winger has been impressing in the ongoing campaign as well, although he failed to score or assist in either of Napoli’s meetings with Real Madrid in the Champions League group stages.
Kvaratskhelia has previously spoken about how he has always been a lifelong supporter of Real Madrid and grew up idolising some of the club’s legends like Cristiano Ronaldo and Guti, among others.
Now, the 22-year-old winger’s father has revealed that his son has always dreamt of and continues to dream of playing for Real Madrid.
As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Kvaratskhelia’s father said: “Khvicha always dreamed and still dreams of playing for Real Madrid. I am sure about it.”
Talking about the fact that the winger got to play against Real Madrid, Kvaratskhelia’s father added: “For Khvicha, playing vs Real Madrid was special. In my family, everyone is a Real Madrid supporter, except me.”
Real Madrid are in the market for attacking reinforcements, but they are looking for a centre-forward next summer and have Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as their main targets.
As for Kvaratskhelia, whose market value stands at €85 million, it seems quite apparent that he harbours dreams of playing for Real Madrid. But it remains to be seen if there is some interest from Los Blancos in signing the winger.
