Real Madrid’s sports project is the project of the future. With a new stadium and ambitions to sign the world’s most valuable players, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland, next summer, Los Blancos are ready for another golden age. While they still have many stars of the past playing at a high level, such as Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos, Los Blancos already have future stars who are approaching the international level.

This season, we have seen Vinicius Jr. take his game to new heights, while the signing of Eduardo Camavinga in the summer of 2021 has shown signs of quality.

Let’s take a look at how each young player, defined as under 25, has performed for the first team so far in 2021-2022.

Saint Luka Jovic

There is another possibility of a winter loan for Luka Jovic, who could be on his way out of Madrid by the 2022-2023 season. It’s unfortunate, but with Los Blancos keen to realize the dream of both Mbappe and Haaland in 2022, Jovic may be the odd one out sold for cash flow perhaps to offset the additions both stars have made.

Jovic is a good player in his own right, which is why Real Madrid bought him for around €60m in the first place. So far, Jovic has scored only 60 minutes in La Liga, adding a assist to his league record. Jovic also played two matches on the bench in the Champions League, with a total of 35 minutes.

He looked decent while on the court, but since he played a few minutes later, it’s hard to give Jovic the real praise. It was unfortunate that he had been injured before the Elche match, because it would have been his chance.
