2.- Federico Valverde

Another great Real Madrid discovery is Uruguayan Federico Valverde, the midfielder who is doing the job that Paul Pogba was supposed to do.

In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if Zinedine Zidane decided to not bring Paul to the club just to give Valverde a chance to keep growing.

This is arguably one of the best finds in Uruguay’s recent history and an inevitable talent.

Much like Sergio Busquets did it when he started his career, Valverde is also going through his evolution at an unusually fast pace.
