Real Madrid’s squad planning has been impeccable so far. Bar a couple of hiccups, Real have done really well when it comes to competing for titles in the present as well as building for the future. They do need to make some signings, but things are looking good.

There should exist a good balance, and we all know that there is one at Real Madrid. Luka Modric, Karim Benzema, and Toni Kroos are on the older side, while young players like Vinicius Jr. and Fede Valverde, are very young and still have a lot to achieve. This balance is perfect, and it just needs to keep getting even better before the young players completely take over.

Real Madrid do believe that they need to sign replacements for Dani Carvajal and Karim Benzema, but I think they might have one for Carvajal already. Well, it’s too early to tell, but Vinicius Tobias can become Real’s next starting right-back, and it’s being recognised by the boss, Carlo Ancelotti as well.

According to AS, Ancelotti was telling his assistants what he feels about Vinicius Tobias. The words were kind, which is what you expect from a guy like Ancelotti, but he did mention that he is impressed by the speed at which the youngster is learning.

I really think Tobias has the potential. He started off slow at Castilla but his performances did improve as the season went on, and hopefully, he’s able to improve even more this season. I don’t think he’s going to get that many first-team opportunities this season, but if he is able to impress the gaffer in the preseason, a lot can change.

Next. 3 players that can still sign for Real Madrid before the season starts. dark

Either way, Tobias needs to keep improving and eventually, the time will come for him to become a starter at Real Madrid, if he’s improved enough. And, when that happens, and when he fully realises his potential, the sky is the limit for him. He’s so good offensively, and I can imagine he’s only going to get better.
