A look at 3 potential future right backs.

With Dani Carvajal having a late season resurrgence Los Blancos do not need to spend heavily on the right back position. More so when you look at 3 potential inhouse back up options.

The first is long-time prospect Sergio Santos, whom Madridistas should get to see more of in 2022/23 unless he is sold in a deal similiar to Mario Gila. He is furthest in his development towards first team football. Next is a high-end attacking right back prospect from Shakhtar Donetsk in Vinicius Tobias, and the early returns on the Brazilian are already strong. His attacking upside is unquestioned but he has work to do defensively.

Finally you have Jesus Fortea poached from Atletico. Consdiered one of the crown jewels of the Los Rojiblancos’ academy the 15-year-old will play for the U18s next season, which shows his remarkably fast development as a right back. Defenders usually move up the youth ranks more slowly.
