Real Madrid for years had been the club where superstars arrived to solidify themselves as legends. Now though, the club have moved away from their Galactico philosophy to a large extent and instead, they are creating their own Galacticos now. And we might have seen the birth of another one in the game against Barcelona.

This El Clasico was expected to be a tight game between the two best teams in Spain but did not turn out to be the case. Instead, Real Madrid were quite comfortably the better team and their only fault was that they did not put the game to bed early. Ultimately though, they were good enough to walk out with a 3-1 win.

Federico Valverde was one of the scorers on the day, as the Uruguayan scored a stunning goal from the edge of the box and put in a Man of the Match performance on top of that.

And in this game against Barcelona, we might have seen Valverde’s metamorphosis from one of Real Madrid’s brightest prospects to a bona fide superstar.

Luka Modric and Toni Kroos showed that they are still two of the best on the planet in the game against Barcelona. But it might be time to start regarding Valverde in that category as well.

Valverde has been one of the most highly-rated players at Real Madrid for a long time but now, it is pretty clear that he is ready to make the jump to the next level and be one of the undroppables of this team.

He has been stunning this season, whether it is a right winger or as a midfielder. It is pretty clear that Real Madrid have their hands on an absolute superstar in the Uruguayan. Long may he continue to shine.
