Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

According to a recent report from Marca, Real Madrid are showing keen interest in US goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina, as they attempt to bring in young talents to Santiago Bernabeu.

It has also been mentioned that the European Champions face stiff competition for this talented youngster as several Premier League clubs are looking to sign him in this summer transfer window.

Slonina’s Campaign With Chicago Fire So Far

Gabriel Slonina is a U-20 international for the United States. He has appeared for the MLS outfit Chicago Fire for 25 matches so far, securing 36 clean sheets over the course of two seasons across all fronts.

How Would He Serve Real Madrid In The Future?

The 18-year-old shot-stopper has produced a few impressive displays between the sticks for his MLS outfit. He fits the bracket of a modern goalkeeper, standing at 1.93 metres and boasting a powerful frame. Furthermore, the youngster has showcased exceptional ball-handling skills during his campaign with Chicago Fire.

Los Blancos have been busy in the past months scouting young talents to bring in this summer, and Slonina fits the bill perfectly as an investment for the future. He has the potential to perform at a high level and has the versatility to evolve into either a sweeper-keeper or a ball-playing keeper, depending on the coach and club he would play in.

Should he choose to side with the European Champions, he would serve as a great understudy for Thibaut Courtois as a long-term successor of the Belgium international. Carlo Ancelotti would be wise to secure his signature as Andriy Lunin looks set to depart this summer in search of regular playing time.

Gabriel Slonina could be loaned out by the Spanish giants immediately upon his arrival in hopes of developing him or could play as a reserve taking Lunin’s place in the squad should he exit from Santiago Bernabeu.

All things considered, it would be a decent signing for Real Madrid as their search for young talent continues demonstrating where they are headed in the market this summer.
