Indeed, Real Madrid has a history of promoting young talents from their academy, commonly known as La Fabrica, to the first team. Sergio Ramos, Iker Casillas, and Raul are some of the notable names that came through the ranks at Real Madrid.
Sergio Arribas, Nico Paz, and Alvaro Rodriguez are among the current crop of young players who are to make a breakthrough in the first team soon. Arribas, a 20-year-old attacking midfielder, already made his debut for the senior team. He has been impressive in his limited opportunities. Paz and Rodriguez are also highly rated and have been regulars for Real Madrid Castilla.
Real Madrid Castilla captain Carlos Dotor is reportedly attracting interest from La Liga clubs ahead of the summer transfer window. The 22-year-old midfielder has been a standout performer for the reserve side. He is a leader on and off the pitch. Dotor’s performances didn’t get observation and he emerged as a transfer target for several top-flight Spanish clubs. However, it remains to see whether Real Madrid will be willing to let go of one of their promising young talents or keep him in their ranks for the future.
Will Real Madrid like to keep Dotor?
Dotor’s steady development helped him become a crucial part of Raul’s team. He played in all 33 games for Castilla in the current campaign, scoring 3 goals and providing 6 assists. Thus he played a vital role in their fight for promotion from Segunda B. At 22 years of age, Dotor has the experience and maturity needed to make the step up to senior football.
Dotor is keen on developing his skills and gaining experience before making the jump to the senior level. Thus it could be a wise decision for his long-term development. However, with several top-flight teams, he may find it hard to turn down a move to the first division in the upcoming transfer window.
Indeed, Dotor proved himself to be a talented player with a bright future ahead of him. It will be interesting to see where he ends up next season and how he continues to develop as a player.
