With Castilla missing out on promotion, Real Madrid are set to lose some of the key members of the team as they look to continue their development elsewhere, having reached the end of the cycle within Raul Gonzalez’s side.
Rafa Marin is close to signing for Real Betis on loan while Sergio Arribas is also attracting plenty of interest from within Spain and outside.
Now, a fresh report from Mario Cortegana of The Athletic has provided an update on the future of another pillar of Raul’s Castilla outfit, Carlos Dotor.
The 22-year-old midfielder, who also happens to be the captain of the Castilla outfit, will also follow Marin and Arribas through the exit doors this summer even though he still has two years left on his contract.
As such, Real Madrid are seeking a transfer fee of €4 million for Dotor, albeit only for 50% of his rights as the club intend to retain some control over the midfielder’s future.
A stalwart for Castilla in the past couple of seasons, Dotor has made 88 appearances, scoring 25 goals and setting up four more.
Naturally, Los Blancos want to have the possibility of bringing him back in the future if his development continues on an upward trend like they did with Fran Garcia this summer.
So, the Spanish capital club are asking for €4 million for 50% of his rights. However, the possibility of a loan deal, with or without a purchase option, is also not ruled out.
Celta Vigo are interested in securing Dotor’s services this summer and are reportedly the best-placed club to sign him up.
With an exit almost certain, it only remains to be seen as to the nature of the deal which Real Madrid and Celta Vigo agree for Dotor.
Los Blancos are also working on a similar arrangement for Arribas, with the club seeking €10 million for 50% rights of the youngster.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
