A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Fichajes revealed that Real Madrid are showing interest in Bayern Munich full-back Noussair Mazraoui. It has been mentioned that Los Blancos are hoping to move in for the Morocco international this summer.

Mazraoui’s Solid Season At The Allianz Arena

Mazraoui is enjoying a solid campaign at the Bavarian club and has done well to put in a run of impressive displays for them on the right flank. The 25-year-old has picked up four assists in 23 matches for Bayern this season across all competitions.

The Moroccan sensation has caught the eye at times by averaging 1.3 tackles, 0.6 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, 1.1 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in Bundesliga. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution after completing 87.8% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Mazraoui is under contract at the Allianz Arena until the summer of 2026. Therefore, Los Blancos will have to pay a big fee if they want to land the Moroccan talent in this off-season.

Is Mazraoui The Right Fit For Real Madrid Head Coach Carlo Ancelotti?

Mazraoui is a solid tackler of the ball and can time his challenges well to earn the ball back for his team inside his half. He doesn’t hesitate to put his foot through the ball when needed and can also engineer some clear-cut chances for his teammates up top. The Moroccan full-back is a decent dribbler with the ball as well. He is primarily a right-back but can also function as a left-back or fill in as a defensive midfielder if his manager tells him to do so.

We can expect Mazraoui to enhance the quality of Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti‘s first XI. He has what it takes to serve as an ideal successor to Dani Carvajal at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

At 25, Mazraoui will get better with each season which makes him a great fit for the Madrid giants in the long run. However, there are some question marks over whether he would be able to make a smooth transition to life in the Spanish capital if Ancelotti can successfully manage to bring him on board this summer.
