Real Madrid have a talented young footballer knocking on the first-team doors in the form of Sergio Arribas. The 21-year-old has been performing brilliantly for the Castilla team over the past two years and looks primed for a promotion to the senior squad.

However, according to a fresh report from MARCA (h/t Madrid Xtra), Arribas is likely to leave Real Madrid in the summer window, either on loan or on a permanent transfer with a buyback option.

Arribas has been in red-hot form for Raul Gonzalez’s Castilla outfit this season, racking up 15 goals and seven assists from 31 league appearances, driving their promotion bid.

The versatile attacking midfielder has made three appearances for Carlo Ancelotti’s team this term as well, scoring a goal in the semi-finals of the FIFA Club World Cup in Morocco against Al Ahly.

It had been previously reported that Real Madrid were considering the possibility of promoting Arribas to the senior team next season.

However, with Marco Asensio, Dani Ceballos, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric all set to be renewed and Brahim Diaz in line to return from his loan spell at AC Milan, the 21-year-old prodigy might find opportunities hard to come by in Ancelotti’s team.

Hence, there may be a possibility that the Merengues decide to loan Arribas out or sell him while inserting a buyback clause in the agreement, a tactic they have followed with several of their young players over the years.

It has already been reported that Arribas is attracting interest from Los Blancos’ fellow La Liga outfit Girona. It now remains to be seen what the future holds for the 21-year-old Spaniard, who has been tipped for great success by those within the club.

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.
