It has been only six months since Fran Garcia arrived at Real Madrid, returning after a stint with Rayo Vallecano where he honed his skills and returned as an improved player.

However, since returning to his boyhood club, the Spanish left-back has been unable to nail down the left-back spot for himself, despite having had opportunities in the absence of Ferland Mendy.

The Frenchman appears to be the preferred option for Carlo Ancelotti, at least for the time being, as a result of which Garcia has played just 700 minutes this term, not featuring in the starting XI in each of Real Madrid’s last four La Liga matches.

Borussia Dortmund set sights on Fran Garcia

Amidst this, Sky Sports Germany journalist Patrick Berger (h/t Madrid Zone) is reporting that Borussia Dortmund have Fran Garcia on their transfer wishlist heading into the January transfer window.

The Black and Yellows are short on options in the left-back department with Ramy Bensebaini being the only natural player in the position.

And, the Bundesliga club will be losing him next month as the defender will be travelling to represent Algeria at the Africa Cup of Nations, leaving Dortmund in difficult shape.

As such, Dortmund are looking for short-term solutions and would be looking for a loan deal or cost-effective permanent signings in January, with Garcia emerging as an option.

Deal difficult

It is no secret that Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund share a good relationship, having worked on several operations in the past.

However, despite this, Dortmund understand that a deal for Garcia will be difficult in January. Given that he only returned to Madrid last summer, it is obvious that Los Blancos will not want to part ways with him.

As a result, the Black and Yellows are keeping their options open, with a former Real Madrid star – Sergio Reguilon – currently on loan at Manchester United also being looked at.

Real Madrid are just days away from their highly anticipated Champions League final showdown against Borussia Dortmund.

Once the final has been played, planning for the summer transfer window will be in full swing, with the topic of arrivals and departures likely to be discussed.

One of the players facing an uncertain future is Nacho Fernandez. The Real Madrid captain has yet to disclose his future ambitions, despite nearing the end of his contract.

Nacho opens up about future

While he previously claimed that he had already made his decision, a shift in tone can be observed now, with Nacho asserting that he will soon sit with the club and his family to evaluate the best course of action

For now, the 34-year-old remains focused on the Champions League final and does not wish to draw any unnecessary attention.

“Future? The focus is on the final now. After that, I will sit with the club, Ancelotti and my family and I’ll decide what’s the best thing for me,” he told El Chiringuito.

Fernandez acknowledges the fans’ support

Additionally, the veteran centre-back claimed that he does need a grand farewell to know how much the Madrid faithful appreciate him.

“That love the fans have for Toni is the same they have for me. I don’t need a farewell to know the fans love me,” he reflected.

Nacho has devoted his entire career to Real Madrid, rising through the ranks from the youth academy and spending over two decades with the Merengues.

However, he has alluded to the possibility of perhaps donning the colours of a different jersey.

“Sometimes the circumstances are not right to be a ‘one club man’,” he cryptically claimed.
