In recent years, Real Madrid have shifted away from their Galactico signing policy and have been investing more and more in up-and-coming young talents with potential to grow into superstars.

The strategy has paid great dividends for the club as the likes of Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, and more recently Jude Bellingham, are all making a great impact at the club.

And the Merengues do not plan on deviating from that strategy any time soon. Having already secured Endrick’s services for next year, they continue to monitor the market for young prospects with a lot of promise.

Santi Garcia on Real Madrid’s radar

As such, MARCA is now reporting that Getafe’s attacking midfield prospect, Santi Garcia, has popped up on the radars of Real Madrid.

The 21-year-old starlet has been with the Azulones since 2020 and has been training with the first-team setup ever since Jose Bordalas became the manager earlier this year.

Garcia went on to make his La Liga debut for Getafe this past weekend, coming on as a substitute in the 3-0 defeat to Girona.

While he might not have had the most memorable of debuts, the 21-year-old Spanish ace enjoyed a solid pre-season which put him on the map as clubs like Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid took note.

Indeed, both the Spanish capital giants are said to have contacted the youngster’s agent, Jorge Mendes, to stay informed about his situation and any developments regarding his future as they wish to follow his progression.

Santi Garcia is also attracting interest from clubs in Portugal, with teams such as Famalicao and Vitoria de Guimaraes eyeing loan moves.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, there is no immediate move in the works, and as iterated earlier, the Merengues wish to track the 21-year-old starlet who has shown a lot of potential.

There just does not appear to be any respite from injuries for Real Madrid.

Just when it appeared that they were close to having their full squad – barring the two long-term absentees – the Merengues have been struck down by fresh injuries this week.

Arda Guler, who was on the cusp of being named in the squad for the Las Palmas clash, injured himself in training on Tuesday.

And now, during the game against Las Palmas at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid have lost key defender David Alaba to an injury.

Close to the 40th-minute mark, Alaba went down on the ground clutching his leg and appeared to be in quite a bit of discomfort.

Soon enough, the medical staff arrived to take a look at the Austrian and seconds later he was off the pitch and straight towards the tunnel.

Lucas Vazquez came on to replace the injured Alaba, with Nacho Fernandez moving into the centre-back position alongside Antonio Rudiger.

Alaba’s injury leaves Carlo Ancelotti with just two fit centre-backs in Rudiger and Nacho, which is set to be a matter of great concern.

The hope will be that Alaba’s condition is nothing serious and that he is able to mount a quick recovery.
