Real Madrid cultivating fresh impetus at right-back

Real Madrid have only just said goodbye to club legend Marcelo, yet some are starting to believe they may have another quality Brazilian full-back on their hands.

Signed in April from Shakhtar Donetsk, on account of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Tobias is just 18 years old but has been adapting well to his second move of the year. Playing with the Castilla side, Tobias managed to get on the pitch 4 times before the end of the season.

According to Diario AS, Tobias has been gaining admirers within Valdebebas. Currently partaking in the preseason for the first team, he will likely go on their tour to the USA. Carlo Ancelotti went as far as telling the press that he can make it at Real Madrid.

“He is learning, but he has a lot of quality. One of the things that has caught my attention is the speed at which he learns. The idea is to count on him for the future.”

He is still a foreign national and due to the number of spaces for non-European citizens in the squad, he is expected to remain with the Castilla side next season. However there is hope that Vinicius Junior may receive his citizenship soon, which would allow him some first team minutes.

With Dani Carvajal into his thirties, Real Madrid may be able to hold off on signing a future replacement if Tobias can continue his trajectory.

  1. “Signed in April from Shakhtar Donetsk, on account of the Russian invasion of Ukraine”

    When us&uk destroyed Iraq over a lie, I never read remarks such as “when NATO invaded Iraq”.

    How come? It was instead mentioned as “just cause”.

    1. We are talking about the reason RM signed Vinicius Tobias. I don’t remember any Iraqi or Afghan players bring made available for transfer to European teams. Do you?

      1. I am talking about general journalistic lingo while youre talking about players.

        I really hope youre merely playing dumb.

        We can take it a notch further. Why isnt any of American acts aggression (totally 52 different either bombings, color revolutions, regime changes through proxies since second world war) being mentioned as “invasions” in articles whenever those countries or players from those countries come to subject.

        “On account of war in Ukraine” has nothing relevant to do with core of the issue, asides from journalists being instructed to add that to every article. You are at least familiar with implications, arent you?

        1. It’s a Russian invasion of Ukraine and its pertinent to why the player had to leave his former Club. The writer is absolutely correct. If you want to discuss world politics go write a article. We’re not interested in that here
