Real Madrid’s signing of Eden Hazard indicated the beginning of a new era of leadership on the pitch after their struggles last season without a noticeable talisman after the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.
It was a transfer window that saw the signing of players at a combined fee of €305.5m.
Last season saw the revelation of Vinicius Junior at Real Madrid. Unfortunately for him, he suffered an injury that ruled him out for a month or so. He is a really talented player that has been tipped to be the best in the league before long.
The problem now is that both players play through the left-wing which means that Vinicius Junior’s progress might be stunted there is a change in formation and system is made.
Eden Hazard is a versatile player which means he can play the number 10 role as well as on the flank for the Galacticos.
He could play in a 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1 and a 3-5-2 formation to accommodate both players.
If not, Vinicius Junior will have to settle for a spot on the bench and come on as an impact substitute and maybe good performances form that position may give Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane a thing or two to ponder about.
Learning from a world-class player like Eden Hazard will definitely improve his game but a lack of first-team football might also hinder it.
