After a rough start to his Real Madrid career, Vinicius Jr set the world on fire last season with fine consistency. His good form has carried forward into 2022-23, and there seems to be no budging the Brazilian from the Merengues’ left wing now.

While the left side of the attack is sorted, Real Madrid have no such perfectly fitting piece on the right flank. Heading into the summer transfer window, it unsurprisingly becomes a priority.

According to reports from ESPN, Los Blancos are looking into the signing of an attacker who can play on the right wing this summer. 

Kingsley Coman is Ancelotti’s dream signing for the forward department given his versatility. The 26-year-old is one of Bayern Munich’s most potent weapons in the final third and would solve all of Real Madrid’s squad depth woes. 

The operation, however, is far from simple. It would require a monumental economic effort from Florentino Perez for Bayern to even contemplate the Frenchman’s departure.

Richarlison also enters the equation as a possible candidate. While the Brazilian is primarily a striker, he has shown to possess the ability to play on either flank if the need arises and Real Madrid are considering him according to the same source.

Ancelotti has deployed Federico Valverde on the right wing in recent games. The results have been good, but the player’s complete profile only comes forth when in midfield. With Rodrygo also moulding into a more central profile, Los Blancos’ concern is warranted.

The club’s final choice will depend on a multitude of factors including the continuity and form of existing forwards, the economics of the transfer and the available options. All that is certain at the moment is that a fresh pair of legs in attack is a must.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
