Real Madrid youngster’s future up in the air amid widespread interest in La Liga

Sergio Arribas has been a bonafide star for Real Madrid Castilla over the past few years. His season for Raul Gonzalez’s side has been nothing short of spectacular as he has racked up 15 goals and seven assists in 31 appearances so far.

The youngster has been knocking on the doors of the first team for a long time now but has found chances hard to find with Carlo Ancelotti at the helm. Now, it slowly appears he is outgrowing the youth team and that he is ready for the next big step in his career.

According to reports from MARCA, Arribas is still pushing for a spot in the Real Madrid first team for next season but his future is far from certain considering the number of clubs pursuing him.

The youngster will play in the top division come June, but it is unclear if it will be for Real Madrid or another club.

Arribas is no stranger to playing for the first team and has even made three appearances for the Merengues this season. Notably, he found the back of the net in Real Madrid’s Club World Cup semifinal against Al Ahly.

There is no doubt that Arribas has the quality to succeed at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, the club worry that he will see an acute drought for minutes if promoted next season given the presence of Dani Ceballos, Luka Modric, and Marco Asensio, all of whom are expected to renew, plus the return of Brahim Diaz on loan.

The attacking midfielder is likely to make the preseason squad in the summer, and his performances there could have a bearing on his future. As of today, a loan move or a permanent transfer with a buy-back clause are amongst the club’s options.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
