40 Million! Many people thought this would be too much money for an 18 years old Vinicius Junior who is yet to adopt the European game play. But when he came he just showed why such a big money was paid on him. His blistering pace, take ons, recoveries and great passes all has been superb since he came except for shooting, in which he has a major problem. With Hazard being injured he took full advantage of that and also took a great care of Real Madrid’s left flank. He already has 7 goals and 16 assists to his name.
Moving on to another Brazillian sensation Rodrygo Goes, who was also bought for 45 Million. He had a name in Brazil, Perez went for him and signed him. In his first days, he even got the place of Gareth Bale. He scored a hattrick on his Champions league debut for Real Madrid against Galatasaray. Rodrygo has also been a great performer this season for Real Madrid in earlier stages of the season. More to come from him soon, he just needs a bit of concentration and playing time to shine. Apart from that he has 7 goals and 2 assists for Real Madrid.
The third and the last, Federico Valverde. I mean when he was brought in he was unknown to many, got compared with Barca’s Frankie de Jong. But who knew he is far ahead of the Dutch and will even earn his place at Real Madrid very soon. He has been a starter under Zidane for many games, even ahead of 2018 Ballon dor winner Luka Modrić. He performed his utter best in big games like el clasico and Madrid derbies this season. In all three Madrid derbies and both el clasicos he has been awarded as a Man of the match. For the first time ever I saw a player getting praised even after getting a red card. Adiing to it, he can score goals, provide assists, cover up places for his teammates and as well he has accelarating pace. Fede Valverde surely has a big future ahead.
