Another day, another win for Real Madrid, as Carlo Ancelotti’s side made sure that they remained at the top of the La Liga table. The win over Elche means that they are still to lose this season and only have drawn a couple of games as well, one in the league and one in the Champions League.

Real Madrid put three goals past Elche, with the scorers being Federico Valverde, Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio.

Of course, Benzema celebrated his Ballon d’Or win with a strike to his name, as fans would have been hoping for. But another player who deserves immense respect for his performances this season is Valverde, who has taken his game to the next level.

The Uruguayan scored a wonderful goal against Barcelona at the weekend and he one upped himself on this occasion, by scoring an even better goal against Elche. It is hard to believe that Valverde had scored only once last season. It is just October and he already has six to his name this time around. Not just that, but he is scoring stunning goals as well.

Rumours in the past have suggested that Real Madrid have turned down bids as high as €90 million for Valverde.

Some fans even questioned why and understandably so. While Valverde has always been highly rated for his contributions, he had not been an undroppable for the club or someone who was scoring a bunch of goals.

All that has changed this season though. Valverde has surely become one of the first names on Ancelotti’s team sheet by now and one of Real Madrid’s important players without a shadow of a doubt. Not only is he putting in world-class performances but he is capable of doing that in multiple positions across the pitch.

Not too long ago, Real Madrid had the reputation of signing superstars. Now, they are creating them at the club. And Valverde seems to be the latest name on that list.
