Real Madrid takes blow as 18-year-old Swedish wonderkid on radar suffers long-term injury

Real Madrid are renowned for attracting the world’s top football talent, but there has been a noticeable change in their transfer market approach.

In addition to recruiting elite talents on the ascendance, the Merengues are also keeping tabs on youngsters yet to explode on the grand stage.

Brazil, in particular, has drawn significant interest from Real Madrid’s scouting team, although they are exploring emerging talent in other football-rich regions as well.

One of Sweden’s fastest-rising young talents, Roony Bardghji is hailed as his country’s next big thing and unsurprisingly been on Real Madrid’s radar.

Bad news for youngster

Now, Mundo Deportivo have come out to report that the 18-year-old winger for FC Copenhagen, Roony Bardghji, injured his knee during practice and will be sidelined for nine to twelve months.

This comes across as a tough blow for the youngster, with Real Madrid reportedly very attentive to the strides he was making in Sweden.

Roony Bardghji had also amassed interest from other top clubs like Bayer Leverkusen, Juventus, Chelsea, and league rivals Barcelona.

With his contract set to expire in December next year, Bardghji would have been hoping to make a strong impression to attract the interest of top clubs like Real Madrid.

However, his recent knee injury is a major setback, potentially slowing his momentum and jeopardizing his future opportunities.

Dreams of Real Madrid

The Swedish youngster has not shied away from professing his love for Real Madrid in the past, declaring them as an ideal destination.

“The dream is, of course, to take the next step to the major leagues, clubs, and tournaments. The club I want to end up in? I want to play for Real Madrid and stay for many years,” he claimed in February last year.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has said that during a recent training session, he bumped into Raul, a former striker and current Castilla manager, who confessed to him that he did not like his decision to retire from the game.

The midfielder added that he would now be interested in playing the Legends match where the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Raul participate. 

The veteran admitted that playing alongside these legends one day would be quite exciting.

“When I left the training yesterday, Raul was outside. He told me that he did not like the decision at first but found something positive because now I’m definitely playing this legends game with him,” said Kroos on his podcast

“He said I had to be there. Me and Zizou playing behind him, Figo on the right, and RC3 (Roberto Carlos) at the back. That could be funny,” he added.

During the early hours of Tuesday, May 21, Kroos announced that he would retire from professional football after the upcoming European Championship in his home country.

As a result, Real Madrid now have to work on an alternate strategy to plan life beyond Kroos. As suggested before, the Los Blancos are of the idea that at present, there is no one in the market who can fill the void.

On the other hand, though, Dani Ceballos’ chances of staying have now increased. At the same time, there are reports that Joshua Kimmich is being monitored, but nothing seems concrete yet.

For now, Real Madrid are largely expected to rely on the current roster as the likes of Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and even Jude Bellingham are more than capable of occupying Kroos’ position.

If even that does not work out, the team from the Spanish capital can look into the youth system to rope in a capable alternative.
