    I’m wondering exactly what he is too, I’m pretty sure I read in an interview one of his coaches saying he hates to play as a striker, I guess we’ll find out soon enough, someone must have seen him actually play

    Some AM/Second striker hybrid. One more player without a set position, like Isco, Asensio, James & Rodrygo...

    If he wants to be a top player he will embrace it.

    He is a CF. Period.

    I think we plan to play him as a forward anyway

    You just never know though which one of those ends up as a headlining elite player, maybe none of them, maybe more than one.

    But yeah, I get it. We could end up laughing with the investments we’ve made in the Brazilians.

    We could sell all three. Each for 100 and buy Mbappe!

    Even if they all bust they would command a higher fee than what we bought them. That's one of the complaints in Brazilian media today; Real Madrid is buying up jewels for cheap.

    Anyways I strongly doubt all three bust. I truly believe Vinicius and Rodrygo will be absolute titans.

    It was high comedy any of them thought we would even entertain selling Achraf.

    They can have Odrizola of they want..

    I’m a bit conflicted on whether I think Van de Beek would be a good purchase for Real Madrid or not.
    You already have other midfield options such as Isco, James and Odegaard down the line who are technically better than Van de Beek and they aren’t even getting much of a look in the Real midfield.
    So I think what would determine VdB’s worth is whether he can fill a specific niche that those players don’t fulfill. In that case he could be a worthy addition. For whatever reason I think he could have some succes with Real but in a very different role than the aforementioned players.

    According to Cope, Odriozola is very close to leaving on loan in this winter window. Possible destinations include: Sevilla, Athletic, or Bayern.

    Loss of depth, but I’d rather give the minutes to Militao anyway in the event of a Carvajal absence

    Interestingly they are each doing well with different aspects of their development. Jr is a beast, quick powerful, he goes by players like they aren't there. It's easy to forget his youth seeing how athletic he is.

    Rodrygo in the other hand has shown a knack for scoring, at times he's looked as comfortable as he'd playing FIFA 20 at home on PS4.
