Perhaps the only weak point, per se, in Real Madrid’s entire roster is the right. Rodrygo Goes is a good option, but he’s the only good option, and without him we’re left with Marco Asensio, who can’t really be trusted even after scoring the team’s third-highest goals.
Fede Valverde is a good player there but we all know his best football comes out when he plays as a central midfielder.
So, there’s not much to decipher for Real Madrid; They might have signed players if Asensio were to leave the club, but the best option available to them has now opted out.
Serge Gnabry, of whom I have been a fan for a long time, renewed his contract with Bayern until 2026crushing all my hopes and dreams of him being a Real Madrid player at least for a considerable future.
Serge Gnabry renewal at least gives players like Rodrygo a chance to steal the show
There is, however, one good thing about all this: Gnabry was really the only player I wanted Real to sign for this position, among those who were available. Now I would much rather see Rodrygo and maybe even Sergio Arribas play on the wing and hopefully improve, plug the gaps and score goals in the process.
I’m sure Rodrygo will get plenty of playing time on the right wing this season, but I’m worried about his compatriot.
I don’t want it to be Asensio, I’m really sick of seeing him play for the club. I would love it to be Arribas, because that kid is really, really good. He scored over 15 goals for Castilla last season.

If he’s able to get the playing time I’m hoping for, I think Arribas could also prove to be a good player on the bench at Real, much like Rodrygo was last season. It all depends on how much Ancelotti starts to trust him, because, well, that’s a big thing. My man just doesn’t like playing against Castilla players.
