Éder Militao, Nacho Fernández and David Praises, those are the three head offices of the first team with which explains right now Carlo Ancelotti after the sale of Raphael Varane to the Manchester United. The French has left 'take' the position of defender in the staff merengue, that already has decided that no fichará a relief for him. The fourth head office will go out from among the triple Jesús Vallejo, Mario Gila and Víctor Chust, these two last canteranos of the filial.

But, it hits the Real Madrid betting everything to these players? A lot of fans madridistas and the own common sense say that these footballers could remain short for a complete campaign. Happen of two figures of elite more than contrasted like Varane and Sergio Bouquets, with Militao and Nacho like alternatives, to this, could be risked and could finish costing him to the ones of Chamartín more than a discontent.

Although Militao did a 2021 brutal taking advantage of the injuries of Varane and especially of Bouquets, does not leave to be a defender of 23 years that only has played to very high level some months in the Madrid. Now, without the French neither the Spanish, the Brazilian will be indisputable in the centre of the defence and will have to show that it can lead the saga. It could be a lot of pressure for somebody of his age, since a bajón of level could be dramatic for his team.

David Praises, by his part, carries playing in the Bayern of head office from the irruption of Alphonso Davies, but has showed many times that it is better left-handed side and even midfield player that defender. It fulfils, it is a teacher in exit of balloon and is fast, but is far of the best here. Thus, it goes to be a waste that have to play almost always in this place in front of the fault of options, although to the Madrid seems that it will not remain him another.

Nacho will be the acting so much of the Austrian as of Militao, although as third head office could remain short. The canterano is already a veteran and has given an exceptional performance almost always, but usually has exerted of fourth defender, no like third. It will play a lot and it will have to give the level if to the headlines happens them something, although it is not of the all clear that go to be able to face this challenge.

The fourth head office of the Madrid does not go to give the level

Finally, Chust and Gila are the defenders of the Castilla and any seems to give the level to play in the first team. In fact, can that any have level in these moments to play in First. By his part, Vallejo follows accumulating cessions and in any finishes to explode. Ancelotti Will choose between them and the favourite of the Italian will be the fourth head office. It was the one who was the elected, seems that it will remain very short. In spite of everything, in the club have clear that there will be new signing and that will risk to that the defence suffer this next campaign.
