A recent report from Diario SPORT has offered an update on the future of Dusan Vlahovic, who recently had to close his social media networks due to insults from fans.

The hate from supporters could prove to be the final straw for Vlahovic as he looks to leave Juventus at the end of the season. The Italian giants themselves could look to cash in on the forward in an attempt to generate some much-needed revenue.

Real Madrid are among the clubs that have been linked with a move for Vlahovic. The striker reportedly wanted to join to Spanish giants during the January transfer window, but the club did not budge.

But as Karim Benzema enters the final phase of his career and continues to struggle with several fitness issues this season, Real Madrid have slowly intensified their search for a new forward in the market.

One of those options is Vlahovic, who has scored 20 goals for Juventus since joining the club at the start of last year. Although the Serb has not performed up to expectations, he still has a great future ahead of him.

However, signing Vlahovic could be a tricky business for Real Madrid in the coming summer. This is because the former Fiorentina starlet has been courted by several other European giants including Arsenal.

Bayern Munich, too, are monitoring the situation of the Serb, as they look to sign him as a potential long-term replacement for Robert Lewandowski next season. The competition from Bayern and Arsenal could prove to be challenging for Real Madrid, who have other priorities in the market, including Jude Bellingham.

Fortunately for Los Blancos, Vlahovic is not the only option in the market. The club have been also linked with a move for Richarlison, who has an excellent relationship with Carlo Ancelotti, though it remains to be whether or not the Italian will remain at Bernabeu beyond summer.

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.
