Zinedine Zidane has quite the squad at his disposal, and many of those faces made their way up from the famed La Fabrica academy, already becoming trusted figures taking on important roles within the team.
Alvaro Morata, Casemiro, Lucas Vazquez or Dani Carvajal have all proved their worth as good enough to play with the best at Real Madrid, valued much higher now than they did when they first arrived.
All four were signed for small amounts, and in the case if any were to be sold, Real would make quite the profit now.
Morata specifically returned from Juventus for 30 million euros and is sure to be worth much more in his second spell at the club.
Casemiro too has been said to have been offered up to 40m euros to leave Real Madrid, though his importance in the Champions League final proves how crucial he is to the squad, as did his recent two-month absence due to injury.
Lucas Vazquez has become an indispensable squad player, filling in admirably for Gareth Bale thus far.
Finally, Dani Carvajal returned from his spell in Germany playing at an extremely high level, beating star signing Danilo to the starting role at right-back.
In fact, Pep Guardiola was said to have asked for his services but the 24-year-old Spaniard preferred to stay put.
Despite their ages, Real’s young contingent have proven time and again that Zidane’s judgment on them is spot on, and that the club was correct in believing they could perform at a club as demanding as Real Madrid.
