SHOCKING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid’s interest in a Manchester City loanee has sparked speculation that the Spanish club is looking to continue Cristiano Ronaldo’s legacy at the club. The Portugal star, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, enjoyed a successful spell at Madrid, winning multiple titles and individual accolades. The loanee, who has expressed admiration for Ronaldo, could potentially fill the void left by the Portuguese star, Real Madrid eye Cristiano Ronaldo ‘acolyte’ in Manchester City transfer swoop Is this the start of the Ronaldo legacy at the Bernabeu?


Real Madrid is reportedly keen on securing the services of right-back Yan Couto, who has been making waves on loan at Girona, currently the unexpected leaders of La Liga, from Manchester City. According to Marca, Real’s interest in the talented defender is tangible, with ongoing monitoring of his situation. Couto’s standout performances have been a linchpin for Girona’s remarkable season, featuring in 19 La Liga matches, scoring once, and providing five assists, ranking him second in the league for assists. Alongside stars like Aleix Garcia, Savio, and Artem Dovbyk, Couto has played a pivotal role in keeping Girona at the summit of La Liga after 20 matchdays.

Several factors align favorably for Real Madrid in pursuing Couto. His contract is set to expire at the conclusion of the next season, potentially making him available at a discounted rate after his loan concludes and he returns to Manchester City. Demonstrating the ability to thrive in La Liga at just 21 years old, Couto adds an intriguing prospect for Real Madrid. Notably, his admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo and the expressed dream of playing for Los Blancos could also be pivotal factors.

While Dani Carvajal has regained top form in the 2023-24 season, the long-term injury to Lucas Vazquez leaves a void in the right-back position. Both players, aged 32, underscore the need for Real Madrid to consider securing Couto as a strategic reinforcement. The timing appears opportune for Real Madrid to address this gap in their squad and potentially benefit from the young right-back’s promising talent.

In a parallel development, Real Madrid has successfully concluded an agreement to acquire 19-year-old Puerto Rican winger Jeremy de Leon from Castellon. With De Leon’s contract set to expire at the end of the season, Real has acted swiftly to bring him into their youth team, Castilla. Despite limited footballing history in Puerto Rico, De Leon’s signing marks a proud moment for the country, as he becomes a Real Madrid player.

De Leon caught the attention of Real Madrid scouts with his rapid pace and silky dribbling showcased during the previous season with Castellon. Despite facing challenges in securing playing time this season due to a transfer request, he now has the opportunity to exhibit his skills at Castilla, expressing gratitude for Real Madrid’s confidence in him. His addition contributes to the growing pool of young talent in Castilla, featuring promising names like Nico Paz, Mario Martin, Alvaro Rodriguez, Gonzalo Garcia, Vinicius Tobias, and Alvaro Carrillo. This influx of talent bodes well for the future of Real Madrid, as the Castilla continues to nurture and produce exceptional young players.
