Real Madrid has found the perfect target to compensate for all its injuries


By: Manu Tournoux

If everything goes well on the pitch, with Real Madrid occupying the leader’s chair in La Liga, on the injured side, it’s a massacre. The infirmary is full to bursting and it keeps overflowing. Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, Eduardo Camavinga, Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Jr were joined last week by David Alaba, victim, like the first two mentioned, of a rupture of the cruciate ligaments of the knee. His season is already over.

We should also have news for Rodrygo, who came out in stoppage time against Alavés (1-0). Carlo Ancelotti wanted to be rather reassuring about his state of health but it is still a muscular problem on which we must remain vigilant. As you will have understood, the needs of Casa Blanca are above all defensive. All these injuries force Ancelotti to move Aurélien Tchouaméni to central defense, a position that the Frenchman does not like.

Robert Renan ticks all the boxes

This is an emergency solution, while waiting to recruit. Names have already been mentioned such as Eintracht Frankfurt player William Pacho (22 years old) and Antonio Silva (20 years old) from Benfica. These two elements turn out to be very expensive but in view of these two avenues, it is a question of aiming young. A third name has appeared in recent hours and it has the advantage of ticking all the boxes. According to A.S.Real is targeting Robert Renan, Brazilian U20 international.

Left-handed, young (20 years old) and not that expensive (around €20 million), the central defender plays at Zenith Saint-Petersburg where he arrived last winter and with whom he is under contract until June 2028. He is only a substitute in Russia but has plenty of room for improvement. The only obstacle is that European Union sanctions have made it difficult to do business with Russian companies since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. This is why a loan, possibly with a purchase option, is being studied.
