Football is a constant battle between experience and exuberance. While youngsters provide the latter, they sorely lack the experience that veteran players bring with them.
It is not surprising that the most successful teams have a perfect balance between youngsters and veterans.
Real Madrid’s midfield has run on experience for the past few years. With Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Casemiro, the club has seen some of its brightest years. However, the club are now beginning to prepare their next generation of midfielders.
In Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde, Los Blancos have two bright youngsters who can make it big. Yet, one feels that there is a need for a player with experience to guide the duo.
According to reports from David Ornstein, Real Madrid are seriously considering the signing of Paul Pogba from Manchester United. The Frenchman has been a target for the Madrid based side for several years now, and this could be the year his transfer becomes a reality.
Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in acquiring Pogba’s services too and will provide stiff competition to Ancelotti’s side. However, the player’s desire to wear white provides Real Madrid with an advantage.
Pogba is on the final year of his contract and will be a free agent in June. To acquire him on a free transfer would be the cherry on the cake for Los Blancos.
The World Cup winner has only started 16 league games for Manchester United this season, scoring one goal and providing nine assists. He has created six big chances and averages 1.2 key passes per game.
