We’re gonna need a lot of bangers next season and I’m almost certain the boys will deliver.

Vini is on the cusp of greatness

The comparison shows what many of us could have guessed from merely watching the two players. Vini is a winger first while Kylian is a striker first. Perhaps the most impressive thing about the comparison is the realisation that both are complete modern forwards.

The Guler Affair?

Despite the apprehension many tend to feel towards young players who are carried by hypre beyond their top flight experience. There’s no denying the boy’s ability. It is likely he will join a team like BVB and suddenly cost €100m, as is the trend these days.

Castilla Hype

Real Madrid are overly cautious when dealing with Castilla players. There’s very little apetite to promote Castilla players directly to the first team. Since Hakimi made the jump in 2017, there have been zero promotions. This trend suggests that Nico would be lucky to join the first team for pre-season with long odds of staying in with the first team for the season.
