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.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
