Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro are Real Madrid’s irreplaceable midfield trio. Like it or not, Madrid must prepare a successor for the three.
Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro have been residents of Real Madrid’s midfield since at least the 2014/2015 season. Casemiro stood as a defensive midfielder, then Luka Modric as a playmaker, and Toni Kroos who was able to provide mature passes.
All three have won many titles, from the Spanish League title to the Champions League. The roles of the three are almost irreplaceable!
Reporting from Marca, Real Madrid has tried several times to bring in central midfielders to replace the three. Names such as N’Golo Kante to Paul Pogba have been on the target list but unfortunately have never been achieved.
Moreover, now the age of the three players will soon enter the twilight phase. Luka Modric is 35 years old, Toni Kroos is 31 and Casemiro is 29.
In the midst of this pandemic, Real Madrid’s finances are in a slump because of the club’s reduced income. So it seems, Los Blancos will look for potential replacements for the three players from their own young players.
Then, just waiting for the cool hand concoction of coach Carlo Ancelotti.
Some of the names of these players are Martin Odegaard, Dani Ceballos, Isco, Valverde, and Antonio Blanco. The first two games, have been on loan at Arsenal since last season and have enough flying hours.
Valverde has performed well in the last two seasons, despite being plagued by injuries. Blanco is a young player who graduated from the academy who is still 20 years old. Meanwhile, Isco could shine again in Ancelotti’s hands because he had been trained by him.
Inevitably, Real Madrid must start preparing replacements for Modric, Kroos, and Casemiro. If it is late, it will become a big hole that is difficult to patch.
Ancelotti wants Real Madrid to pay handsomely and energetic
Carlo Ancelotti wants to form a Real Madrid capable of playing well and powerfully. He called the style most fitting to reflect the history of Los Blancos.
Real Madrid started a new era with Carlo Ancelotti in the 2021/2022 season. Ancelotti replaces Zinedine Zidane, who was released in May
For Ancelotti, Real Madrid is not a foreign environment. He was in charge of the Spanish capital club from 2013-15, winning one each of the Copa del Rey, Champions League, European Super Cup, and Club World Cup.
In this second period, Ancelotti is determined to bring Real Madrid to appear attractive and full of energy. He wants Los Merengues to reflect his identity as one of the biggest clubs in the world
“We have to consider the history of this club. This team has to play well, show the quality they have,” Ancelotti was quoted as saying by Marca.
” Real Madrid’s history is about football with energy, with intensity on the ball and without the ball. That’s what today’s football needs.”
Real Madrid is the most successful club in Spain with 34 LaLiga titles, the best in Europe and the world with 13 Champions League trophies plus four Club World Cup trophies.
