Real Madrid defender on Inter Milan’s radar, yet to make final decision

There are three categories of player renewals for Real Madrid at the moment.

The first sect represents the players who have agreed on an extension with the club. On this list are the likes of Luka Modric, Karim Benzema and Toni Kroos who will all play in the all-white next season.

The second set includes those who are yet to secure an agreement with the club but transmits positive sensations over a renewal in the weeks. Marco Asensio find himself in such a situation.

The final group includes the likes of Dani Ceballos and Nacho Fernandez. The aforementioned duo have not ruled out the chance of staying next season but are keeping their options open. With every passing day, they move away from Santiago Bernabeu.

According to reports from Jose Felix Diaz, Inter Milan have called Nacho Fernandez and are waiting for him to reveal his decision. The Italians offer him a regular role in the team, something he direly missed at the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid, for their part, have also placed a renewal proposal on the table and the player has received the offer. The club are now waiting for him to reveal his decision.

The central defender has spoken numerous times about how he feels loved at Real Madrid and the pride he feels at the Bernabeu. Barring the lack of a starting role, there is no other factor pushing him away from the club.

Yet, as the player sees it, playing time is invaluable at this stage of his career. He is now 33 years old and does not wish to spend his final years at the top level as a substitute.

Nacho has only started 16 of Real Madrid’s 35 league games so far and has two goal contributions to his name in 24 appearances. Further, he averages 6.1 defensive actions per game and has overseen seven clean sheets.

Real Madrid 23-year-old striker close to finalising a move to Real Valladolid – report

After two years on loan at Getafe, former Real Madrid striker Juanmi Latasa has returned to the Spanish capital.

His performances, after all, were not enough to coerce his foster club to push for a permanent transfer.

The 23-year-old striker made 32 appearances for Getafe last season, including 15 starts. However, he only had two goals to show for his regular participation and it is safe to label his time at the club as a disappointment.

Now back in Madrid, Latasa is unlikely to get a chance to make a mark at the club. All signs point to a departure in the coming days.

The overwhelming favorite

As revealed in a recent report by Jorge C Picon, several first-division teams in Spain have reported interest in the young striker. Real Valladolid however, are the overwhelming favourites.

The La Liga side are looking for a striker with a good physical presence, height, a strong aerial presence and a knack for goal.

Latasa ticks all the boxes they demand and negotiations between the two clubs are expected to progress in the coming days.

Latasa’s sale, at this point, is thus taken for granted. Leganes and Espanyol are some of the other clubs interested in his services.

No scope in Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti, over the years, has not carved out a reputation as one who trusts academy stars heavily. In his defence, however, he has always had superior options available.

Heading into next season, Los Blancos have a packed forward department including Kylian Mbape, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Endrick.

Considering that the well-established Joselu himself saw no scope at the club next season, it is safe to say that Latasa understands his situation.

From Real Madrid’s perspective, it remains to be seen if they maintain any leverage on his future.
