,

Vinicius

in the

Etihad

first leg against

Manchester City

and

Rodrygo

, again, in the return leg at the

Bernabéu

.

His goals, together with those of

Benzema

, have carried Madrid flying towards the possibility of a historic treble, with

the League

, the

Champions

League and

the Spanish Super Cup

.

Three titles that would bring the Brazilian signature in their goals and in the defensive solidity that

Carlo Ancelotti

's team has shown for much of the season.

Militao and Casemiro

have shone there

.

And at his side, managing the locker room, a

Marcelo

who has known how to be a father, teacher and best friend of a new capital generation for Madrid.

The quintet of Brazilians from Valdebebas is the present and future of Chamartín, key in the

sporting field

with its goals and good performances and "

vital

" in the good atmosphere that has reigned in the

locker room

this season.

Two of them are already legends,

Marcelo and Casemiro

, another,

Militao

, is indisputable in defense despite a more irregular year, and the two youngest, Vinicius and Rodrygo, appear as the main emergency rafts for Madrid's hope after the «

no» by Mbappé

.

"Having two legends in the dressing room like Marcelo and Casemiro, compatriots, has helped them

adapt faster to Madrid

.

To understand what it means to play here and to take the first steps in the club well”, they say from the close circle of the young stars of Chamartín.

Music, dinners and futvoley

In the locker room, "and whenever Lucas Vázquez

leaves them

, who is the one who rules with the music",

Thiaguinho

or

Léo Santana

sound , the favorite singers of Vinicius and Rodrygo.

Always samba, between laughs and dances.

"

Vini da ambientazo

", they joke from Valdebebas.

If his relationship with Marcelo and Casemiro is more professional, more like older and younger brothers, advisers, the connection of the former

Flamengo

player with Rodrygo and Militao goes beyond the sports city.

They go out to dinner, stay to play the console or play footvolley at Vinicius' house, and share more similar interests than those sought by Marcelo and Casemiro,

34 and 30 years old

, married and with children.

"They are fathers to the young."

The closest future of Madrid bears the name of the Brazilians.

Militao, Casemiro and Vinicius will start against Liverpool, while Rodrygo is the great boost for Ancelotti along with

Camavinga

.

Marcelo, in what could be his last game, will have to see him from the bench and will hope to raise his orejona after ninety minutes.

With the

renewals of Militao and Vinicius

well underway and the

contracts of Rodrygo and Casemiro

settled until

2025

, the only question is Marcelo's next step.

In the distance, the interest in the new pearl of Brazilian football,

Endrick

, who at 15 has already agreed his first professional contract with

Palmeiras

until

2025

.

Madrid will wait for him there, obsessed and convinced that '

Vinicius-type

' signings are the best solution against club-states.

He could be the future of a clan that mixes veteran and youth, experience (Marcelo and Casemiro have already won four Champions) and the hunger of Militao, Vinicius and Rodrygo, who are looking to win their

first Champions League

.
