Real Madrid have a number of young talent coming up through the ranks. The likes of Sergio Arribas and Rafa Marin are knocking on the first-team doors, having become key members of the club’s Castilla outfit under Raul Gonzalez.

There are other young prospects like Peter and Nico Paz, among others, that continue to excite those within the club due to their potential and promise.

Another such young talent who had generated high hopes was Bruno Iglesias. The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has been on Real Madrid’s books since 2015 and has made steady progress through the youth ranks at La Fabrica.

But after having made his breakthrough with the Castilla outfit this season, the versatile attacking midfielder’s progress has stalled, prompting Real Madrid to consider loaning him out in January, reports MARCA.

Iglesias was handed a new long-term contract in 2021, securing his future at the Spanish capital club until the summer of 2025.

The 19-year-old started the first two league games for Castilla this season but has since fallen off the radar. Indeed, he has played just five times for Raul’s side, clocking a meagre 176 minutes, and registering one assist.

Iglesias’ last appearance for Real Madrid Castilla came way back on October 16. Given how the situation is, it is understandable that Los Blancos have decided to loan him out next month.

The report also adds that there have been conversations held in order to help secure a temporary exit for the 19-year-old. A time away from the club and regular game-time could exactly be what Iglesias needs in order to get things back on track.

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
