The latest departure, that of Juan Núñez, caused a stir, but it confirms what has been happening at Real Madrid for some time, that they have no room for their youth teams, even though they have a nice future ahead of them.

Just look at the last five starts in recent months. So far in 2022, Real Madrid have gotten rid of six homegrown players, oddly none on loan, they have become free. It is clear that “La Fabrica”, as the white career is called, does not lead the first team.

A situation that gives many opinions. The team is one of the most advanced in Europe, it is the current vice-champion of the EuroLeague and the current champion of the Endesa league, but is it incompatible to bet on young quality players? For the moment, it seems so.

Midway through last season Tristan Vukcevic (2.08, 19) left, a boy destined to do great things. A player who had entered the rotation regularly for two seasons. He started the year with 3.3 points and 2.2 rebounds in the Endesa league, and 2.1 points and 1.2 rebounds in the EuroLeague.

He went to Zeljko Obradovic’s Partizan, where the midfielder contributed averages of 5.3 points and 1.3 rebounds in the ABA League, and 3.7 points in the EuroCup.

Another of Los Blancos’ academy talents is Urban Klavzar (1.86, 18), an underdog with huge projection, signed to UCAM Murcia, where he is expected to continue growing. Last season he made his Real Madrid debut, one EuroLeague game, with 10 points and 1 rebound in one game, and two Endesa league playoff games, with no stats to highlight.

In the ANGT EuroLeague tournament, the Slovenian averaged 13.9 points and 3.1 assists per game.

Baba Miller (2.06, 18) is considered one of the projects of his generation. Interior chose to go to the United States to continue his education, opting for Florida State University. Last season he made his debut for Real Madrid in a EuroLeague game, with 0 points and 1 rebound, and with the junior he contributed 6.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in EuroLeague ANGT.

Henri Veesaar (2.09, 18) also opted for the American NCAA, exactly for the Arizona Wildcats. The Estonian contributed last season, his third as a goal, averaging 9.1 points and 5.6 rebounds in EuroLeague ANGT.

Sediq Garuba (1.93, 18), Usman Garuba’s brother, also decided to leave Los Blancos’ academy to try his luck, opting for a side at LEB Plata, Cartagena. Last season he played in two EuroLeague games, averaging 1.0 points, and in EuroLeague ANGT he averaged 8.4 points and 4.1 rebounds.

And we end with Juan Núñez (1.91, 18 years old), MVP of the last U20 European Championship and currently playing his first minutes in the senior team, he will continue his sports career in German basketball after having made the decision to sign with Ratiopharm Ulm

Núñez played a total of 15 games for Real Madrid in the regular phase last season, contributing 0.7 points and 0.6 assists, then in the playoffs he increased his average to 2.0 points and 1.1 assists in seven games, until the title of champion of Endesa. In the EuroLeague he appeared in 10 games, with 1.4 points.

This summer he was European Under-20 champion, averaging 11.6 points and 4.9 assists, and recently made his senior debut. 8 minutes, where he brought 1 rebound and 1 assist.

The exception: Eli Ndiaye

Ndiaye (2.04, 18 years old) is the exception to all this dynamic. He will play with the first team next season. Last season he already played a few minutes with the alumni, four games in the EuroLeague, averaging 1.0 points, and one game in the Endesa league playoffs, where he contributed 2 points. In the ANGT, he stood out with his 14.6 points and 9.6 rebounds. He will struggle for minutes in a very crowded Real Madrid indoor game. It’s not easy for young people to find a place in the white team.
