Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Youssouf Fofana’s “Little brother” interview!
Dazzling during the first part of the season where he sometimes seemed to hold Real Madrid on his shoulders, Federico Valverde has somewhat marked time after his failed World Cup and his elimination from the group stages with Uruguay. Above all, his alleged aggression towards Alex Baena, the Villarreal player, in the corridors of the Bernabeu, could cost him dearly. Indeed, the disciplinary committee of La Liga has opened a file against him, which is likely to lead to a sanction of several games, he would thus miss the start of the season of the next exercise with the Merengue.
Valverde is not for sale
However, this does not seem to disturb its leaders. According to daily news AS, the 24-year-old midfielder is one of the few “untransferable” players in the team. Indeed, management will not even listen to offers, no matter how much. He is seen as an essential part of Real Madrid’s project for the coming years. In recent days, some English clubs have come to take the temperature on the side of the Spanish capital, and they have all received the same answer: “Valverde is not and will not be for sale”. Next year, he could play alongside Jude Bellingham in a midfield that will experience great competition, with the historic Modric and Kroos as well as the two Frenchmen Camavinga and Tchouaméni.
To sum up
Following the alleged attack on Alex Baena, Federico Valverde could risk a big penalty, but Real Madrid don’t seem to want to let him go. The Merengues have made him a completely untransferable player.
