Real Madrid have shown a distinct focus on signing talented young individuals with potential to become superstars in recent years.

The strategy has proven to be a great success as Los Blancos have assembled a top-notch squad comprising some of the best rising stars in the world such as Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes, Federico Valverde, and more recently Jude Bellingham.

Arda Guler and Endrick’s signings were also made in line with this strategy and Los Blancos continue to keep an eye out on exciting young talents across the globe.

Real Madrid following Alejandro Garnacho

Indeed, according to reports relayed by Fichajes, Real Madrid have shifted their focus to Manchester United teenage attacking prodigy Alejandro Garnacho.

A former trainee of the Atletico Madrid academy, Garnacho left Spain for England in the summer of 2020 and has slowly gained prominence at Manchester United.

The 19-year-old winger was a part of Erik ten Hag’s plans during the 2022/23 campaign, making 34 senior appearances in which he contributed five goals and assists apiece.

Garnacho has featured thrice this season and is set to gain more prominence now that Antony and Jadon Sancho are not in contention to play at Manchester United.

The Argentine youngster’s promise and potential have not escaped Real Madrid’s attention with transfer chief Juni Calafat closely following his development at Manchester United.

Garnacho signed a new contract recently

However, signing Garnacho from Manchester United, if Real Madrid do decide to go down that route, could be difficult.

The 19-year-old penned a long-term contract renewal at the club only a few months ago, committing his future to the Red Devils until 2028.

Furthermore, at his age, Garnacho needs regular game-time, something that might not be possible at Real Madrid as Vinicius Jr occupies the position on the left flank.

For now, though, there is nothing concrete beyond Calafat and Real Madrid following the Manchester United starlet’s progress.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
