According to reports from MARCA, Las Palmas are set to sign Real Madrid youngster Marvin Park for a fee of €2 million in the coming days. The Merengues will retain 50% of the rights of the player.

The 22-year-old spent the past season on loan with Las Palmas and played a key role in helping them earn promotion back to La Liga. His deal included a purchase clause that could be triggered in the summer of 2023, and it is that very clause that they wish to trigger.

Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez himself confirmed the news as relayed by the Spanish publication, and even admitted that they were satisfied by the loanee’s performance.

The Spanish winger spent his early years in the sport with Sporting Ciutat de Palma, Tranmere Rovers and AD Penya Arrabal before making the move to Real Madrid’s academy in 2016.

His ascent up the ranks was rapid from then on. Park made his debut for the Castilla team at just the age of 19 in 2019.

The winger made his first-team debut in September 2020 when he came on for Rodrygo Goes in a 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad before eventually leaving on loan last summer, after making four senior appearances.

Park made 24 league appearances for Las Palmas in the recently concluded season, even scoring one goal in the process. He only averaged 38 minutes per game but still managed to win 3.1 duels, 1.2 tackles per game, and complete close to 90% of his passes.

Park’s permanent move to Las Palmas could well signal the end of his Real Madrid career given that a return is close to impossible. He becomes the second Los Blancos youngster whose loan deal is turned into a permanent buy after Getafe decided to trigger the buy option for Juanmi Latasa.

Aurelien Tchouameni has had an exciting start to his career at Real Madrid. Since joining the club for almost €80 million last summer, the young Frenchman has now become a pivotal figure in Real Madrid’s midfield unit.

However, prior to his move to Santiago Bernabeu, the midfielder was closely linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

In a recent interview, Tchouameni opened up on his links to PSG but revealed his decision to join Real Madrid.

Talking about speculations linking him to PSG, Tchouameni said (h/t Madrid Zone), “PSG? Frankly, I thought about it. It’s a very big European club, we want the French clubs to succeed.”

“But honestly, when Real Madrid calls you, it’s very complicated to say no,” Tchouameni added.

The midfielder was linked with a move to PSG during his time at AS Monaco. Les Parisiens wanted to sign the youngster as part of their plans to reinforce the midfield unit.

Tchouameni, though, ended up opting for a move to Real Madrid, which turned out to be a prudent decision from the midfielder’s end.

Tchouameni’s career at Real Madrid

Aurelien Tchouameni made a total of 50 competitive appearances during his maiden season at Real Madrid.

Although the Frenchman was not entirely a first-team regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s setup, his stature in the team is expected to grow in the coming years.

Especially as Toni Kroos and Luka Modric move on at the end of the season, there is scope for Tchouameni to become a first-team regular in the Real Madrid midfield in the years to come.

The former AS Monaco starlet has already played a crucial role in the starting eleven so far this season and it is only going to continue as the season progresses.
