Midfielder Sergio Arribas is one of the players who could leave Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. According to what Spanish news outlet MARCA has reported, several La Liga teams have shown interest in the 20-year-old and a certain Getafe are one of them.

For now, Real are not ruling out any transfer and are listening to every offer that has come along despite the fact that he recently signed a new and improved two-year deal with the team.

Arribas has been with Real since 2012 when he joined their La Fabrica after playing for  CD Leganes and CDE Benito Perez Galdos.

In 2020, the young midfielder was promoted to Real Madrid Castilla and in the same year, he went on to make his senior debut, coming on as a late substitute for Vinicius Junior against Real Sociedad.

To date, he has played a total of 10 matches for the senior team. Although he is yet to open his account for them, he did score five goals for Real Madrid Castilla in 16 outings during the 2021-22 season.

Getafe have been actively scouting Real’s talent of late. Having already signed Borja Mayoral on a five-year deal, they are currently negotiating for Juanmi Latasa. 

The 21-year-old forward was expected to replace Karim Benzema in the first team setup, but lack of minutes during the pre-season has forced him to assess his options. 

Before the pre-season, Rayo Vallecano and Real Valladolid both came up with an offer, but the forward decided to wait and hear what Carlo Ancelotti had to offer.

The aforementioned outlet has confirmed that Real and Getafe are negotiating a permanent transfer, with the former retaining 50% of the forward’s rights. 

Although a simple loan move is also a possibility, it must be noted that Real will also include a buy-back clause in case of a permanent transfer.

Real Madrid defender on the radars of Juventus, could leave for €6-8 million

Real Madrid are looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.

Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.

The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.

According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.

The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.

Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.

The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.

Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
