Real Madrid in discussions with La Liga club over the sale of talented youngster

After enjoying a dream campaign with Real Madrid Castilla, Sergio Arribas is likely to be on his way out of the club this summer.

The 21-year-old was one of the main protagonists of Raul Gonzalez’s side, helping them to the cusp of promotion to La Liga 2, only for the team to fall at the final hurdle against Eldense.

A talented young footballer, Arribas is held in very high regard within the club. However, given the lack of a pathway into the first team, the young attacking midfielder is expected to be on his way out.

Reports have suggested that Real Madrid have themselves advised Arribas that it would be best if he left to further his development. His exit would either be on loan or a permanent transfer with a buyback option.

And, there is no shortage of interest in the Spanish ace either, with Borussia Dortmund, Deportivo Alaves and Girona among the clubs keen.

Now, Jose Felix Diaz of MARCA is reporting that UD Almeria are also interested in Arribas and Real Madrid are currently in talks with the La Liga club over the 21-year-old’s exit.

A move to a club like Almeria could prove to be beneficial for Arribas as he would be a regular starter and would play week in, week out in La Liga, which will hold him in good stead as far as a future return to Real Madrid would be concerned.

Arribas, who can play anywhere in the final third of the pitch, scored 20 goals and set up seven more for Castilla last season. He also featured four times for Carlo Ancelotti’s first team and netted a goal in the process.

A loan move away would be ideal for the 21-year-old so that his development does not stall. A return to Real Madrid a year or two down the line could very well be on the cards if things go his way.

Journalist Arancha Rodriguez has claimed that Real Madrid forward Brahim Diaz played the Las Palmas game with a dislocation in his right shoulder, which actually happened last Sunday during the derby match against Atletico Madrid.

The news was later confirmed by the forward’s father, Sufiel Abdekalder, who told The Athletic, “Yes [he had dislocated shoulder], but we didn’t want it to be public. Our 100% focus was on the match.”

The former AC Milan loanee started his first game of the season and it was his goal that marked the beginning of Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Las Palmas. 

The 24-year-old was later replaced in the 57th minute but by then, the Los Blancos had already established a two-goal lead.

“I’m so proud, you can’t describe the feeling, it’s something unique. I can only thank the fans because I’ve had an incredible welcome. I’m very happy to be here and play for this badge,” the forward said after the game.

Special outing for Diaz

The Las Palmas game was the first time that Diaz started a game for Real Madrid.

The versatile attacking midfielder found himself among the five alterations made by Carlo Ancelotti following the disheartening derby performance against Atletico Madrid last Sunday, a game where Diaz was only introduced in the 70th minute.

The 24-year-old seized the opportunity with both hands, scoring the opening goal in what was a comfortable outing for the team. 

Given the competition at hand, Diaz has been forced to settle for substitute appearances this season but fans have witnessed his unwavering dedication during this time.

The love he received from the Madrid supporters was shown when he was substituted during the second half.

While it is unlikely that his run in the first-team will continue, especially since Vinicius Jr. has now returned, the 24-year-old must continue to keep his head on the ground and work towards achieving the common goal this season.
