Even though the transfer window is not yet officially open, Real Madrid have completed their first sale of the summer.

Indeed, in an official statement, the Spanish capital club have announced they have reached an agreement with UD Las Palmas for the departure of academy winger Marvin Park.

“Real Madrid CF and UD Las Palmas have agreed on the transfer of player Marvin Park,” the statement read.

“Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude and affection to Marvin and wishes him and his entire family the best of luck in this new stage.”

Marvin Park joined the Real Madrid academy in 2016 and went on to make his first-team debut in 2020, featuring four times in total for the senior setup.

The 23-year-old right-winger, who can play at right-back as well, spent the last two seasons on loan at UD Las Palmas and became a regular in the team.

Now, the two clubs have come to an agreement over the permanent transfer of the versatile winger. While the fee has not been revealed, Las Palmas had a €2 million buy option for Park, which is what they are likely to have paid.

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.
