The last name is surely not new, nor is the hairstyle. When one of Castilla’s younger players got his negligible first-team minutes, every one of us watched with utmost concentration. Peter Federico is an exciting prospect. The negligible time that he got, showed that he has game in him. Moreover, he has been quite good, consistent, and important to Raul’s Castilla side. At just 19 years of age, Peter already is Raul’s first choice on the right-wing. He has had more minutes than Marvin Park for Castilla this season and also scored three goals. That should tell you well about his quality.

The right-wing was considered a problem area for Real Madrid. Thanks to Rodrygo Goes, that narrative has changed somewhat. However, the young Brazilian still needs to be tested more in the starter’s role. He is a clutch player who can wreak havoc off the bench. That’s been established. But, Real Madrid will look to try and get someone for Rodrygo to compete with.

Marco Asensio is definitely not that guy. Kylian Mbappe could be, but his profile is again much different. More versatile, to be honest. And, the Frenchman would be looking for the central role in the longer run. That is if the long-awaited transfer finally happens. Regardless, it is always a good idea to try out the best Castilla option in the position to see if the talent at home is good enough to save the first-team some precious transfer budget.

Peter Federico, therefore, is the second player who should logically get a chance against Levante. He has only featured in flashes and it’s been a long time. Carletto owes him one decent opportunity at least.
