Real Madrid will wrap up the signing of former defender in the next 24-48 hours – Romano
The past few weeks have been eye-opening for Real Madrid’s administration over the left-back situation. With Ferland Mendy’s injury, and David Alaba unavailable, Carlo Ancelotti was left with barely any options to deploy in the defensive position.
Thus, the arrival of a new left-back now assumes top priority. Come June, Real Madrid will be boosted by the services of Fran Garcia, and Fabrizio Romano brings key information regarding the same.
According to reports from the Italian journalist (h/t Madrid Xtra), Garcia’s move to Real Madrid will be a done deal in the next 24-48 hours. During that duration, the contract signing will also be completed.
Real Madrid reached an agreement with Rayo Vallecano earlier this season after Bayer Leverkusen made an important economic effort to sign the full-back in January.
Having the right to first refusal, the Merengues made use of their weapon and re-routed his transfer to Madrid. However, his arrival is only possible in the summer because of restrictions from La Liga.
The 23-year-old has started all 21 of Rayo Vallecano’s La Liga games so far this season, assisting two goals in the process. Moreover, he averages 0.8 key passes per game and has overseen eight clean sheets.
Given Mendy’s poor form this term, especially in the attacking facet of the game, Garcia could find himself a regular starter next season. However, a lot depends on the youngster’s ability to perform under the spotlights at Real Madrid.
Until then, however, the manager will be forced to utilise the likes of David Alaba and Eduardo Camavinga as cover for Mendy.

Real Madrid held talks with Thomas Tuchel before he signed for Bayern Munich
Before he was hired by Bayern Munich as the direct replacement for Julian Nagelsmann, Thomas Tuchel was closely linked with a move to Real Madrid at the end of the season.
The German tactician had kept a close eye on the development at Santiago Bernabeu, especially with coach Carlo Ancelotti facing immense pressure following the club’s poor performances in domestic competitions.
A recent report from Jorge Picon has offered more details on the Tuchel saga, suggesting that the coach was even learning Spanish during his time at Ibiza, anticipating a potential move to Real Madrid at the end of the season.
There were even contacts made between Tuchel’s entourage and Real Madrid. Although the talks were positive, the two sides were not able to reach an agreement.
Real Madrid did not guarantee him the job. They had informed Tuchel that Ancelotti may continue at the Bernabeu in the event the club win the UEFA Champions League this season.
This bit of uncertainty played a critical role in convincing Tuchel to join Bayern Munich instead. The former Chelsea boss was hired as a direct replacement for Nagelsmann, who was sacked after a poor season in the Bundesliga by the club’s high standards.
However, Tuchel’s move to Bayern appears to be a missed opportunity on the German’s part, as Real Madrid have recently intensified their search for a new manager.
It is clear that the club’s hierarchy is yet to reach a consensus over the future of Ancelotti, with some believing that a change is necessary come the end of the season. In fact, the club’s president Florentino Perez has been an admirer of Tuchel’s compatriot Nagelsmann.
The coaching prodigy is one of the candidates to replace Ancelotti in the summer, though it is Mauricio Pochettion who is reportedly leading the race so far.
