Back in Madrid, the record European champions have a new midfield hero in academy graduate Valverde who has slowly become an integral player for Madrid over the past few months.

The Uruguay international has managed to squeeze himself into coach Zidenine Zidane ‘s midfield mostly at the expense of 2018 Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric who has been starting most of the action from the bench.
