The conclusion of Real Madrid’s 2022/23 season established that the team needs some serious reinforcement in the wider areas of defence. In this regard, a certain Fran Garcia is already on his way from Rayo Vallecano but the right side still remains a problem without a solution.

Now, according to what Tomas Gonzalez-Martin has written for El Debate, the likes of Kyle Walker and Achraf Hakimi are two options that are being considered to consolidate the right side of the defence.

We have reported before that Hakimi is already thinking about a potential return to Madrid. The 24-year-old Morocco international was born in Spain and joined Madrid’s youth setup at the age of eight. After making his debut for the first team in the 2017/18 season, he began to roam around the continent.

He first spent two years on loan at Borussia Dortmund before moving to Inter in a permanent deal. After spending a solitary season there, the right-back joined Paris Saint-Germain.

And now, it is believed that the 24-year-old is open to the possibility of returning to Real Madrid. Interestingly enough, Hakimi’s wish to return to the capital city coincides with Madrid’s will to sign a right-back.

At the moment, Dani Carvajal remains the first choice option and since he is entering the last phase of his career, the club wants to sign a more reliable option than Lucas Vazquez. For that, Chelsea right-back Reece James is thought to be one option and Kyle Walker is the latest player to join the list.

The Man City right-back was exceptional in the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg against Real Madrid, as he kept Vinicius Jr under check.

Walker has a contract with the Cityzens until 2024 and could be available for an affordable price. However, given that he is already 32, the management might want to be more careful while dealing. 

The option of signing Hakimi, however, could be a tempting one as the age is on his side while his style of play suits perfectly to Madrid’s.

    Why not buy Jeremie Frimpong, he’s young, has a similar game to Carvajal instead of any of these players, he’s probably cheaper than Reece James and Hakimi for sure

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
