How Real Madrid's risky bet on youth players is paying off.

The Real Madrids trip to Milan ended perfectly. Fede Valverde, Vinicius Junior, Rodrygo Goes and Eduardo Camavinga were involved in the last winner at inter. The Frenchman was the last of the previous ones to arrive at Real Madrid, and he is the latest in a long list of talents that shows the change of priority at the club in recent years. Los Blancos have focused on young talent and it is paying off Of course, some players have escaped the cracks, but most have been success stories. The pandemic and the financial recession forced things to change in football, and Los Blancos had to work even higher, while still being attentive to market opportunities, as seen with his signing by David Alaba.

One problem the club has faced is that players like Valverde, Rodrygo, Reinier Jesus and even Eder Militao have needed minutes to gain confidence, develop more and start playing well, although Reinier has not yet had a chance at Los Blancos. However, patience does not exist at Real Madrid, where the demands are arguably higher than anywhere else in world football. But the president, the board and the fans have accepted the club's plan to develop young talents and enable them to become stars of the club.

Hopefully Reinier will be next in line, while Martin Odegaard has been sold to Arsenal for 10 times more than he signed, and the win over Inter shows that things are going well. Along with Luka Modric, Nacho Fernández, Thibaut Courtois, Dani Carvajal, Toni Kroos, Karim Benzema and Casemiro, Real Madrid have a perfect balance and many players who know they will play important roles this season.
