Real Madrid started this season with 3 players in the spearhead position, but the Serbian Luka Jovic was loaned to Eintracht Frankfurt, Karim Benzema did not regain his fitness after his injury, and Mariano Diaz was injured.
This complicated situation left French coach Zinedine Zidane bewildered in choosing the squad that will play the Madrid derby tomorrow, Sunday, against Atlético, the league leaders.
Zizou may be able to count on the Brazilian Rodrigo Goose, but the French coach wants to search for the youth team known as “Castilla” to summon one of the attackers, and he may sign him as a substitute in Sunday’s summit.
And after giving Hugo Douro and Sergio Arebas the opportunity recently, Zidane puts his sights on summoning 19-year-old Juanmi Latasa to the first team.
Latasa – according to his videos posted on the communication sites – is a sniper striker and a goal-scorer, with a strong build, 1.91 cm in length, and is good at playing air balls, and it may be an addition to the Real Madrid attack, which suffers from the curse of injuries.
Since his return from a recent injury, Latasa has participated in 4 games and scored 3 times, and he trained with the first team before the start of the season, but a jaw injury kept him out of action for two months, and now he plays with a muzzle on his face to protect him.
It is noteworthy that Latasa moved to Real Madrid from an Adrava team in 2016, and honed his talent under the supervision of striker Raul Gonzalez, the former scorer for Real.
