Rudiger claims Germany wonderkid would be a perfect fit for Real Madrid: “Outstanding footballer”



Real Madrid defender Antonio Rudiger has said that Bayern Munich midfielder Jamal Musiala has everything needed to play for Real Madrid, adding that despite all the noise around him, he has managed to keep his feet on the ground.

Musiala, 19, has been one of the standout performers this season, registering 12 goals and 10 assists across all competitions for Bayern Munich. Interestingly enough, nine of those 12 strikes have come in Bundesliga alone followed by sevens assists in the league.

Called up in the Germany squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar, although Musiala is not among one of Madrid’s target, Rudiger has said that he has everything to play for the team from the capital city.

“What he is doing at Bayern… He is an outstanding footballer and a very, very good guy. He has his feet on the ground despite all the noise around him and he has everything to hopefully play here some day,” said Rudiger (h/t Mundo Deportivo).

Musiala moved to Bayern Munich in 2019 from Chelsea and made his first team debut a year later, becoming the youngest player to play a Bundesliga match for Bayern aged 17 years and 115 days.

In his first season as a regular starter, he played 37 games across all competitions in the 2020-21 season, scoring seven goals.

Known for his versatility, Musiala has played across six different positions this season. This includes playing as an attacking midfielder, central midfielder, holding midfielder, attacking winger (left and right), left midfielder, and as a full-fledged forward.

Meanwhile, although he is not one of Real’s targets, it will take a whole lot for the team to pry him away from Bayern even if they are considering it. This is because his current deal with the Germans champions runs until 2026.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana (h/t Madrid Zone), Real Madrid have two objectives for the upcoming summer transfer window. The centre-forward and the right-wing position are seen as the two positions to be reinforced but no decision has been made yet about making a move.

This comes over and above the Merengues’ pre-existing need for new midfielders and full-backs in the coming windows.

At first sight, it may appear that Los Blancos are well stacked in the final third. In Vinicius Jr, Karim Benzema and Rodrygo Goes, they have three starting quality players who are well-complemented by the likes of Marco Asensio and Federico Valverde.

Yet, Vinicius is the only player on the aforementioned list who can boast of a starting role in a fixed position for at least the next decade.

There is worry over the centre-forward role considering Benzema’s lack of form and fitness throughout the current campaign. With the Ballon d’Or winner already 35, the club need a young reinforcement soon which is evident with the team’s struggle for goals this term.

Los Blancos have already invested heavily in Endrick in this regard. However, that has not stopped them from following established options like Dusan Vlahovic and Erling Haaland as their Brazilian wonderkid will not arrive until 2024.

The right wing is also understaffed despite the presence of young Rodrygo and Fede Valverde. The duo have no dearth of talent but have not managed to click on the wing as well as the manager would have liked.

Thus, it remains to be seen as to who the club targets to strengthen the wing and aim to stretch the play. Given the heavy investment planned for Jude Bellingham, a low-cost option is likely to be considered.
