This summer, Real Madrid were hoping to sign Kylian Mbappé to bring a breath of fresh air in attack. The French world champion finally stayed at PSG. Suddenly, the Merengues could prepare for the future by recruiting Matheus Nascimento, Brazilian crack Botafogo. Plus
Real Madrid soon more attack?
Champion of Spain and holder of the Champions Leagues, Real Madrid can greatly thank Karim Benzema, who has just completed a season with 44 goals in all competitions. Because in the wake of the Frenchman, the danger is not really omnipresent. So much so that the Merengues are preparing to get rid of Luka Jovic (Fiorentina) or Mariano Diaz. Kylian Mbappé, who extended to PSG and Erling Haaland, finally recruited by Manchester City, will not come. Therefore, what forces to support KB9? Borja Mayoral could return, but he barely seems to have the makings of an understudy. Real could then turn to Brazil where the young Matheus Nascimento bursts the screen.
According AS, who also made his front page on Friday June 24, 2022, Matheus Nascimento has what it takes to become Real Madrid’s future number 9. The 18-year-old forward has stacked goals with the youth teams and currently wears the colors of Botafogo. With 2 goals on the clock in about ten appearances, he is not yet an indisputable starter but in Brazil, we are watching his emergence with great interest.
According to specialized sites, Matheus Nascimento is worth 7 million euros today. But his release clause set at 50 million could be a brake. In any case, if Real Madrid have their way, they will send the young talent to Castilla to give him time to adapt. He could be promoted to the first team in 2024 or 2025. When Karim Benzema decides to end his mad Madrid adventure? This is a possibility that should not be overlooked.
