Real Madrid Castilla stars are the talk of the town in the Spanish transfer market. The youngsters are in high demand after their incredible run with the Raul Gonzalez’s team last season as they look to turn a fresh page on their careers.

Sergio Arribas is arguably the one who has generated the most interest thus far, with Bayer Leverkusen joining the race with Sevilla, Real Betis and Girona to sign the star. Rafa Marin, however, promises to be a close contender in terms of interest generated.

Real Madrid may be opting for a permanent transfer with a buyback clause for most of their young stars this summer. However, reports yesterday highlighted that they did not wish to go down that route with Marin. The Spanish giants have faith in the youngster’s high ceiling and have only opened the doors for him to leave on loan.

And according to reports from Sergio Santos, Rayo Vallecano and Alaves are the favourites to sign the player on a short-term deal.

The 21-year-old is a centre-back by trade and was one of the pillars of Raul’s side last season. His young age and high ceiling make him the perfect candidate to take over the reins of defence in the long run for Real Madrid.

David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger are currently among Carlo Ancelotti’s trusted resources at centre-back but are both on the wrong side of 30. Considering that even Nacho Fernandez is on the same boat, Marin could be one to partner Eder Miliato in the long haul.

The prodigy’s contract with the Merengues runs out next summer and it is thus the club’s priority to renew his deal until 2025 or 2026. Only after the preliminary step will he be allowed to leave on loan.

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.
