Football is a constant battle between experience and exuberance. While youngsters provide the latter, they sorely lack the experience that veteran players bring with them.

It is not surprising that the most successful teams have a perfect balance between youngsters and veterans.

Real Madrid’s midfield has run on experience for the past few years. With Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro, the club has seen some of its brightest years. However, the club are now beginning to prepare their next generation of midfielders.

In Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde, Los Blancos have two bright youngsters who can make it big. Yet, one feels that there is a need for a player with experience to guide the duo.

According to reports from David Ornstein, Real Madrid are seriously considering the signing of Paul Pogba from Manchester United. The Frenchman has been a target for the Madrid based side for several years now, and this could be the year his transfer becomes a reality.

Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in acquiring Pogba’s services too and will provide stiff competition to Ancelotti’s side. However, the player’s desire to wear white provides Real Madrid with an advantage.

Pogba is on the final year of his contract and will be a free agent in June. To acquire him on a free transfer would be the cherry on the cake for Los Blancos.

The World Cup winner has only started 16 league games for Manchester United this season, scoring one goal and providing nine assists. He has created six big chances and averages 1.2 key passes per game.

Real Madrid have finally received some good news as MARCA confirms that Nacho has finally made his decision about his future, and is set to continue at the club for the foreseeable future.

His contract expires in the summer, and Real Madrid had tabled an extension for the player, which was not accepted by the Spaniard at the time. Now, however, he has decided to reject offers from Juventus, Inter Milan, Chelsea, Inter Milan, and AC Milan.

Nacho will sign a one year extension, with the option to extend for another year if both parties reach an agreement.

His continuity also means that he will be the new club captain for the 2023/24 season, since Karim Benzema is leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer. Luka Modric will be second captain, followed by Daniel Carvajal and Toni Kroos.

Carlo Ancelotti has also spoken to the player, confirming that they trust him for next season in the team, which has gone a long way in helping convince the player.

The Italian gaffer also spoke about the Spanish defender’s contract situation after the game against Athletic Club yesterday, saying:

“Asensio, Nacho and Ceballos? We have explained them their roles. The club have offered them renewals. Asensio has preferred to leave, Ceballos and Nacho are still thinking about it.” 

While a centre-back by trade, Nacho has played across the defence for Madrid continuously, including putting shifts at left-back, right-back, and even centre-back.

His departure would have probably pushed Madrid to sign another defender, especially since they are considering selling Ferland Mendy if a good offer arrives.

Regardless of that, though, Madrid are moving to sign Alphonso Davies, and have already made initial contacts with the player. Bayern Munich have not rejected their advances.

Further, the los blancos management have already met with Davies’ entourage twice, cementing their interest in the Canadian ace.
