The future of Andriy Lunin appears to be getting more and more uncertain with each passing day.

Currently in European Championship action for Ukraine, Lunin will face a crucial decision this summer as he looks to choose between continuity at Real Madrid and a move to a new club.

Ukrainian legend Igor Belanov has recently tipped Lunin to leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer, as he claims the goalkeeper is unhappy with his role at Real Madrid.

European battle for Lunin

Should Lunin leave Real Madrid in the coming summer, there should be no shortage of suitors for the Ukrainian international.

According to SPORT, top clubs from Europe’s best five leagues are on the hunt for Lunin this summer and the battle is intensifying with each passing day.

In Spain, Atletico Madrid are eyeing a move for Lunin as a potential replacement for Jan Oblak.

In the rest of Europe, clubs like Bayern Munich, PSG, Manchester City and Juventus are all keen on acquiring the services of the Real Madrid goalkeeper.

Lunin’s compatriot Igor Belanov has already urged him to join Bayern, who are looking for a long-term replacement for Manuel Neuer.

Arsenal too are interested in the 25-year-old shot-stopper. Coach Mikel Arteta is a huge admirer of the Ukrainian international and is ready to go all out on him this summer.

The same can be said for Newcastle United as well.

Lunin, for his part, has remained tight-lipped on his future, although his wife, in a recent interview, has hinted that the player might prefer remaining in the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
