In a major development, MARCA is reporting that Real Madrid may be on the verge of closing another signing before the summer transfer window is officially open for business.

As per the report, Los Blancos are just one step away from closing the signing of Getafe goalkeeper David Soria.

The 30-year-old shot-stopper came through the youth ranks at Real Madrid before leaving the club for Leicester City in the summer of 2012. Six months later, he was back in Spain with Sevilla, where he spent over five years before joining Getafe in 2018.

Since then, Soria has made over 180 appearances for the Azulones, keeping 68 clean sheets in the process.

Real Madrid were in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements as they are preparing to offload Andriy Lunin, who wants to leave in search of regular game-time. The idea was to rope in an experienced goalkeeper to provide cover for Thibaut Courtois.

And it seems like the Merengues have found their man in Soria. The report suggests that Real Madrid director Jose Angel Sanchez is in a meeting with Getafe president Angel Torres to close the signing of the 30-year-old custodian.

Furthermore, personal terms between the player and Los Blancos are already understood to have been agreed during a meeting with his agent yesterday.

There is no mention of a fee in the report, but there is a possibility that some other players might enter the operation.

Earlier today we reported that Getafe were ready to take up the buy option on Real Madrid youngster Juanmi Latasa, which is believed to be worth around €3 million. Apart from Latasa, the Azulones also like youngsters like Sergio Arribas and Peter Federico.

So, the exact structure of the deal remains to be seen, but as things stand, Soria could become the second former academy man to return to Real Madrid this summer following in the footsteps of Fran Garcia, who will be re-signing from Rayo Vallecano.

What is the price tag on Kylian Mbappe’s Real Madrid jersey?




Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
