Real Madrid have an incredible collection of young talent, many of whom are already among the best players in the world. Vinicius Jr., for example, is a legitimate Ballon d’Or candidate amidst a breakout campaign with 17 goals and 10 assists in LaLiga to go with nearly 10 goal contributions en route to the Champions League Final.
But who can break out like Vinicius and become the next big star in Madrid? Manager Carlo Ancelotti already has his eyes on one player.
Carlo Ancelotti is pushing Real Madrid to extend Rodrygo Goes
According to MARCA’s Jose Felix Diaz, Carlo Ancelotti is sensibly urging Real Madrid to complete Rodrygo’s contract renewal, which would reportedly include a deserved raise to six million euros per year in wages.
And Carletto is of the belief that we have not seen the best of Rodrygo yet, seeing the young winger as a future reference point on a global scale.
As has been the case so many times, especially with attacking talent, Ancelotti is absolutely right.
Although Rodrygo hasn’t had a breakout on the season-long level like Vinicius, the ex-Santos man has broken out with that type of production in recent weeks. And the importance of his goals and performances can never be forgotten.
Without Rodrygo, Real would have lost to both Chelsea and Manchester City in the Champions League knockout stages.
Rodrygo is a renewal that must be completed as soon as possible, just like the ones for Luka Modric, Vinicius Jr., and Eder Militao. He is the next great Real Madrid attacker, and it is wonderful that Madridistas understand that now.

Of course, it is even better that Carletto does, but it is fair to say he always had high hopes for the young forward. The 2022/23 season is the year of Rodrygo’s true breakout, and any Madridistas still thinking about a certain someone will forget quickly, thanks to him.
