Brahim and Vallejo, two jewels to be polished away from Real Madrid
Young and with projection, but in the Santiago Bernabéu may not have the minutes they need to finish exploiting.
The final casting enters the final straight with the dispute of the last five days of La Liga. Since the Frenchman finished on the bench of Real Madrid to replace Solari, he has been testing the different players that make up the merengue squad. One of the last ones in ‘going out to the ring’ was Jesús Vallejo. The central maño approved the exam with a note, as well as a Brahim Díaz who had few minutes against Athletic, but who managed to start the applause of the fans.
Both one and another were two pleasant surprises in the match against the Basque side. However, this does not mean that they will continue at Real Madrid starting next summer. Vallejo has barely had continuity since he reached the first white team after his transfer to Eintracht Frankfurt. In 2016/2017, the barrier of one thousand minutes (1.004 ‘) was overcome, divided into twelve matches between the League, Champions League and Copa del Rey.
In the present season the thing has not gone better. Unlike. The injuries have become the particular calvary of Jesus Vallejo, who has been chaining one to another to the point of having to abandon a workout between tears after having broken again.
What Vallejo needs is : continuity. In games like the one of the Athletic, without hardly rhythm of competition, it demonstrated that if it enjoyed minutes of habitual form could have a hollow in the Real Madrid. The former Zaragoza was the best of the game and even Zinedine Zidane or Emilio Butragueño recognized his remarkable work before the different media.
While footballers like Dani Ceballos or Marcos Llorente seem not to convince the French coach, Brahim Diaz does have the favor of Zidane. In the list of summoned against Athletic, the first two were left out, while the Malaga not only entered but also was the third replacement against the lions.
He was not even ten minutes on the field, but he gave him time to leave a play that reminded the best Vinicius Junior and for which he won the compliment of Zizou himself: “It’s good, I knew him from before. Brahim likes that when he takes the ball he always goes to the goal, he likes to play, he likes to associate … The pity is that he has not scored, I would have liked him to do it “.
Everything indicates that both Jesús Vallejo and Brahim Díaz will say goodbye, at least momentarily, to Real Madrid. The central seems safe. The defender would leave as a loan or also under the formula with an option to repurchase, since in the white club they trust that, continuity, he could meet the projection that led to his signing in the summer of 2015. His current contract ends at mid 2021.
In Concha Espina they also trust Brahim’s projection, but also that, like Vallejo, outside of Real Madrid they could have those minutes they need to grow. The decision on the future of Malaga will be Zinedine Zidane. It is most likely to be transferred to another team, suitors are not lacking, although the French coach has already said several times that the young player likes him a lot and has been following his steps for a long time.
