Real Madrid take on Sevilla later this evening at the Santiago Bernabeu. This promises to be a special game for a Sevilla player, who is looking to make his mark on the biggest stage.

The player in question is Juanlu Sanchez. The young right-back looks destined to make his appearance against Real Madrid and play his first game at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid to keep eye on Juanlu

A right-back by trade, Juanlu has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Sevilla this term. He has racked up 29 competitive appearances so far, impressing onlookers with his technical prowess and ability to provide width on the flanks.

For Real Madrid, Juanlu is no stranger. The club have been monitoring the progress of the Seville native for quite some time now, reports Diario AS.

Formerly of Mirandes, Juanlu has shown immense potential and a move away from Sevilla could be on the horizon, especially with Real Madrid monitoring his situation.

An ideal replacement for Dani Carvajal?

Real Madrid are monitoring the progress of Juanlu at a time when the club are desperate to find a long-term replacement for Dani Carvajal.

At 32, the Spaniard is currently at the twilight of his career and will cease to be a reliable option in the long run. Real Madrid also have a dearth of a reliable alternative.

A fullback who can operate as a winger, Juanlu could make a strong case for being an ideal target for Real Madrid.

The youngster has the technical ability to thrive in Real Madrid’s system. More importantly, he is young and has shown the ability to perform at the highest level. As such, there is no reason why Real Madrid should not go after the player in the coming summer.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
