After the recent acquisition of Aurelien Tchouameni, Real Madrid has potentially secured the future of their midfield for the next decade but it is certain that the high-profile young trio of Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Federico Valverde will not be playing each and every game if we look at a future without Luka Modric and Toni Kroos.

I am leaving out Casemiro from this conversation as he still has a committed future with Real Madrid and has some years of football left in him.

Speaking of squad density, at present when the midfield is being dazzled by the KCM trio, the young players — Camavinga, Fede and Tchouameni are being hailed as potential game-changers and a substitute for the ageing midfield. Two years from now, Kroos will surely retire while Modric may still remain but it is quite uncertain.

So bearing in mind that future, there will be a requirement to bolster the midfield and make the present youngsters face some competition for the starting eleven spots.

Here in this article, I will be taking a look at three playmakers who may become a part of the Real Madrid team in the future and will synchronize well with the ‘Real Madrid way’.

Federico Chiesa

One of the best talents to break through from ACF Fiorentina’s youth ranks in their history! Federico Chiesa made his mark with the Tuscan outfit with consistent performances since making his first-team debut in 2016. Chiesa made a total of 154 appearances for Fiorentina during which he scored 34 goals and registered 17 assists across all competitions.

After establishing himself as a revelation in the city of the renaissance, Chiesa paved his way for the Old Lady and played a crucial part in helping the distraught Juventus team secure a Champions League spot during 2020/21. The kind of mentality he showed in his first season at the club was the same as that of a leader and of a mature player scoring 14 goals and registering 8 assists, he led the Old Lady to a fourth-place finish, which threatened to become unachievable.

Chiesa is talented, fast, pacey and versatile in nature. Pre-dominantly a right-winger, he can also play in an attacking midfield role or a playmaking role, this position has helped to dictate the game (comparing to Toni Kroos) while also making pacey runs by exploiting spaces and providing his team with depth.

An engine in the field, Chiesa rarely feels the need to be substituted and is known for his proclivity to produce decisive performances in vital matches.
