As we enter the final few days of the summer transfer window, Real Madrid are still hard at work to secure exits of players from the first team as well as the subsidiaries.
The Merengues have already sanctioned the exits of several prospects like Juanmi Latasa, Miguel Gutierrez, Victor Chust and Mario Gila, among several others. And another name could soon be added to the list, as Real Madrid are looking to offload goalkeeper Toni Fuidias.
According to journalist Sergio Santos, Real Madrid are negotiating with the 21-year-old prospect to reach an agreement over the termination of his contract, following which he will have the opportunity to sign for the club he wants.
Fuidias has been at Real Madrid for nine years now, having arrived from the academy of Gimnastica de Manresa in 2013.
Having risen through the youth ranks at La Fabrica, the Spaniard made his debut for Real Madrid Castilla in late 2020 and has since accrued 39 appearances for Raul Gonzalez’s team, in which he has kept eight clean sheets.
Fuidias has been on the bench for Carlo Ancelotti’s senior team on several occasions over the past year but has not made his first-team debut for the Merengues and he could now be on his way out of the club in order to join a side where he can play with the senior team.
Rayo Majadahonda, who play in the RFEF Primera Division, are strongly interested in signing Fuidias. And in order to facilitate an exit, Real Madrid are willing to negotiate the termination of his contract which expires in 2023.
The champions of Spain and Europe hope that an agreement can be reached before the transfer window closes.
One or two high-profile departures could possibly be on the cards for Real Madrid before the transfer window closes, as Marco Asensio and Mariano Diaz remain on the exit ramp.
Real Madrid maintain full confidence in Turkish starlet despite injury woes
Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.
Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.
Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.
Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.
The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.
No loan deal for Guler
However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.
Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.
Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.
They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
