Real Madrid have an abundance of talent in their roaster. Every season, youngsters who can’t find a place in the 25-member strong squad are sent out on loan to show their mettle and gain continuity. The 2021-22 season saw eight first-team players sent out on loan to various teams across Europe, six of whom play top division football.
Here we rank all Real Madrid players who play top division football based on their performance so far this season.
6. Reinier Jesus (Borussia Dortmund)
Reiner’s move to Dortmund was nothing short of a disaster for all parties involved. The player hardly got any minutes. Real Madrid, who had paid 30 million euros to acquire the Brazilian wonderkid from Flamengo, found themselves pondering a disastrous fate.
He played just 21 games with the majority of appearances on the bench during the two-year loan spell. He found no solace under new Dortmund manager Marco Rose despite a dismal campaign for the team. Real Madrid should be careful in choosing the next loan destination for the attacking midfielder or consider selling him as we don’t have a sample size to judge if he can perform at the top level.
5. Victor Chust (Cádiz)
The Real Madrid academy product is on loan at Premier League side Cadiz. Last season, Chust was called into action by Zidane at the end of the fag season amid a plethora of injuries for the first team. He was impressed with the few chances he had. However, it was obvious that he would need consistent first-team football to show his potential.
He has been good if not spectacular for Cadiz this season. He has amassed almost 1500 minutes after starting in all Copa del ray games. His overall defensive numbers are pretty decent for a player playing on a team at the bottom of the table. With Real Madrid keen to sell Jesus Vallejo next summer, Chust could have a shot at claiming the fourth centre-back spot if he finishes this season strong with Cadiz.
