The Real Madrid midfielder, though, also has another goal in thought: he hopes to someday lead Los Blancos as their captain. According to transfer authority Fabrizio Romano, he said:
After Jude Bellingham was signed in the summer, there were several rumours regarding Valverde’s future. The midfield quality in Carlo Ancelotti’s team is abundant and includes Valverde, Kroos, Modric, Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni.
“It’s my dream to be Real Madrid captain one day. That would be insane feeling for me, as it was with Uruguay”.
“Premier League offers? I have the ability to play for Real. The day I don’t feel like that, I’m probably going to look for another solution or Real itself will look for one for me.”
It is evident that Valverde envisions a future with Los Blancos and aspires to one day hold the position of captain. His outstanding performances for Ancelotti’s team are helping him no end in his pursuit of those goals.
