Federico Valverde has stolen the spotlight this afternoon by scoring a stunning goal in the added time of the first half against RCD Mallorca.

The Real Madrid midfielder drifted past multiple defenders effortlessly, before unleashing a curving left-footed drive that completely bamboozled Predrag Rajkovic in goal.

Valverde’s goal helped Real Madrid cancel out Vedat Muriqi’s opener in the 35th minute as the two teams approach the half-time mark.

Los Blancos have their work cut out in the second half as they look to improve on their indifferent start to the proceedings. With 15 attempts on goal, there has been no shortage of effort from the home team, but they need that final end product in front of the goal.

Playing without their star man Karim Benzema, it will be interesting to see how the likes of Eden Hazard and Vinicius Junior plug the massive gap in the goalscoring department, as we look forward to the second half.

Joao Cancelo’s loan move to Bayern Munich from Manchester City in the final days of the January transfer window came as a huge shock.

The Portuguese international signed for the Bavarian giants on a loan deal until the end of the season with a non-mandatory purchase option worth €70 million.

But, according to Fabrizio Romano, before his move to Bayern Munich, Cancelo was also offered to Real Madrid, who decided against signing any player in the January transfer window.

The Manchester City loanee has been on Los Blancos’ radars in the past, but the club made it clear that they are uninterested in signing any new players during the winter window.

As things stand, Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are Carlo Ancelotti’s options at right-back, but there are concerns over their fitness and longevity.

But, as things stand, Real Madrid have no plans to sign a new right-back in the summer as they have full faith in both Carvajal and Vazquez.

Furthermore, Romano adds that the Merengues believe that they have a top right-back for the future in the form of Vinicius Tobias.

The teenage Brazilian joined the club in April last year from Shakhtar Donetsk on loan with a purchase option. He has been earning rave reviews for his performances for Real Madrid’s Castilla outfit under Raul Gonzalez.

So, there is a good chance that the Spanish and European champions will sign Tobias permanently.

All these factors seemingly compelled them against making a move for Cancelo when he was offered to the club last month. The Portuguese international has already made his debut for Bayern Munich and registered an assist on his debut.

Whether they decide to sign him permanently for €70 million in the summer remains to be seen. As for Real Madrid, though, there do not seem to be any imminent plans to reinforce the right-back position.
