Sergio Arribas has been one of Real Madrid Castilla’s most fundamental members in recent seasons. His impeccable form went a long way in taking the team to the brink of promotion to La Liga 2, but it was unfortunately not meant to be as they fell to Eldense at the final step.

Reports yesterday revealed that Los Blancos had asked several of the Castilla stars to look for new pastures to continue their development. Arribas, despite his accolades, was also put on the same boat

The young attacking midfielder has no shortage of suitors with Borussia Dortmund and Girona already working towards his incorporation. While the former ask for a two-year loan stint, the latter seek a permanent transfer and offer a fee of €6 million.

According to reports from AS, Deportivo Alaves have joined the scene to sign Arribas. The entry of a new pawn in the game throws the race wide open.

Luis Garcia’s side recently secured promotion to the first division in Spain and envision Arribas as the right investment to take their midfield forward. The move would almost certainly come with assured first-team minutes, making it a tempting proposal for the Real Madrid starlet.

However, not much is known of Alaves’ economic proposal yet and whether they are willing to beat Girona financially to seal the midfielder’s move.

The prodigy’s first choice is undoubtedly to stay at Real Madrid and fight it out for a place in the senior squad. However, direct competition with Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, Brahim Diaz, and the latest arrival Arda Guler leaves little scope for him to succeed.

It is unfortunate that the club must part with such a talented academy graduate for a lack of space in the squad. One can only hope that Arribas maintains his high level and pushes for a return to the Bernabeu in the years to come.

In 36 appearances for the Castilla last season, the 21-year-old scored 20 goals and provided seven assists. He even featured for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, scoring one goal from his four appearances.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
