Opportunities abroad are seen as vital steps for development, with an array of young Real Madrid talents being sent out on loan to hone their craft.

Even in the case of permanent transfers, Real Madrid tends to retain some rights in case they want to reunite with their academy products.

After all, the fierce competition in the first team is known to halt the chances of growth for youngsters.

Alaves interested in Real Madrid youth midfielder

Now The Athletic (h/t RM4Arab) have come out to report that Alaves are interested in recruiting one of Real Madrid B’s midfielders on loan to Roma, Julen Jon Guerrero.

A portion of the player’s rights will be retained upon transfer, but the Merengues do not anticipate receiving any money considering the player’s contract expires this summer.

Julen Jon has not featured much for Roma’s under-19 team this season, with the player yet to start since the campaign began.

As such, Real Madrid will be in favor of seeing him acquire more playtime, even if Alaves end up acquiring him for free.

Julen Jon, who was born in Bilbao, Spain, began his professional career with Malaga before moving to Real Madrid in 2017.

Despite being a midfielder, he has scored goals for Los Blancos’ youth teams on numerous occasions, most notably in eight straight games during the 2020–21 campaign.

The 19-year-old prospect is the son of legendary Athletic Bilbao player and former Spanish international football player Julen Guerrero and thus his development will be followed closely by Real Madrid.

Julen Jon also has international experience, playing for Spain’s under-15, under-16, and under-18 squads.

As Real Madrid get closer and closer to their final game of the season against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, they are now sweating over the availability of one of their players.

It has already been confirmed that both David Alaba and Aurelien Tchouameni will miss the finals in London due to injuries.

Other than that, Carlo Ancelotti is likely to have the entirety of his squad available at his disposal, although there could be some concerns surrounding Andriy Lunin.

Lunin not in training for the third day in running

Indeed, Andriy Lunin has not participated in team training today, making it three days in a row heading into the Champions League final, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper is down with a fever that has kept him out of training for three days in a row now.

However, the report does add that despite not being in training for three days now, the Ukrainian international will fly to London and be on the squad list for the finals.

But with reports already suggesting that Thibaut Courtois will be starting in goal against Dortmund, Lunin’s continued absence from training only further strengthens the Belgian’s chances.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was absent from training on Tuesday due to personal reasons, is back working with the rest of the squad today. The Spaniard will have no involvement in Saturday’s final though.

Carlo Ancelotti is likely to go with the exact same starting lineup that he named for the Merengues’ final La Liga match against Real Betis.
