Raul Gonzalez has done a solid job since taking over as the manager of Real Madrid Castilla in 2019.

The club legend coached the youth teams for a year before taking over the B side and has been well-regarded for the work that he has done with the Merengues’ subsidiary setup.

So much so that, at one point in time there were even conversations about the former striker being in contention to take over as the first-team manager from Carlo Ancelotti.

While those talks have quietened down, it appears that Raul continues to attract interest from outside.

Sevilla want Raul Gonzalez

Indeed, as per SER Deportivos, Real Madrid’s La Liga rivals, Sevilla, have set their sights on Raul Gonzalez as a managerial target for next season.

With Sevilla going through a difficult season, another managerial change is expected for the next season and Raul has emerged as one of the contenders for the job.

The 46-year-old has previously turned down offers as he hopes to manage the Merengues’ first-team squad in the future.

However, with Carlo Ancelotti renewing his contract until 2026 and Xabi Alonso being lined up as his replacement, it will be interesting to see whether Raul opts to stay or leave.

In case the club icon opts to move on, another former star, Alvaro Arbeloa, currently coaching the Real Madrid Juvenil A team, would be primed to take over as the Castilla boss.

So, there could be some interesting movement within the Real Madrid coaching ranks come summer.

Real Madrid officially played their final game of the league season this past weekend and the focus now shifts to the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on June 1.

The Spanish champions have the glorious opportunity to secure their 15th Champions League title this on Sunday.

But heading into this clash, Real Madrid are likely to miss out on the services of one of the key players – Aurelien Tchouameni.

The Frenchman will likely be ruled out for the UCL final due to an injury incurred earlier this month.

Tchouameni on UCL final

Speaking ahead of the final, Tchouameni admitted that it would be very difficult for him to participate in the UCL final.

“I can run, I think it is very difficult to play in this final and we have more players who can be in my position. The important thing is that we are going to win this Champions League,” Tchouameni said.

The Frenchman added that he would try to help the team any way he can, stating, “If I can be the MVP from the bench, I’ll do it.”

Considered by many as the future of the Real Madrid midfield, Tchouameni has played a valuable role in the middle of the park this season.

His versatility, coupled with his ability to spread the play and put pressure on the opposition have served as key to Real Madrid’s success.

Although Tchouameni might not feature in this final, the player expressed his optimism about the Real Madrid team, adding, “I really want to play in this final, but I’m sure we will reach more finals [in coming years].”

Finally, Tchouameni expressed his happiness at Real Madrid, stating, “It’s an incredible feeling to be at Real Madrid.”

Formerly of AS Monaco, Tchouameni has featured in 88 competitive matches since joining Real Madrid in 2022. With Toni Kroos retiring, he is expected to play a crucial role for the club going forward, although not necessarily in the upcoming Champions League final.
