Whether they are on loan or currently getting minutes with the first team, Real Madrid have several young players who are capable of helping their teams in the 2020-2021 season and even moreso beyond the current campaign.

We already saw how crucial the likes of Vinicius Junior and Fede Valverde were to Real’s success in the 2019-2020 season, as they would not have won the title without either of them. And we could be saying the same thing after the 2020-2021 season

Including loanees, here are five young players who will shine brightly through the remaining months.

Real Madrid LW Vinicius Junior

Vinicius Junior has been a difference-maker in back-to-back games, even though the 20-year-old did not start in either. First, he scored the game-tying goal against Real Sociedad last Monday. Then, on Sunday afternoon at the Wanda Metropolitano, Vini created a clear-cut chance for Karim Benzema and helped turn the tide of the match so that Real could salvage a point.

Based on his recent form since the start of February, it looks like we are seeing Vinicius back at his best. That doesn’t mean he’s perfect or will be a top performer in each game, but it does mean he will help this team significantly. Vinicius has the quality on the ball and the mentality to fight and play a pivotal role in another title triumph for Los Blancos.
