Only earlier today, it was reported that Real Madrid wish to offload four more players in the summer, with backup goalkeeper Andriy Lunin on the list.

However, according to a fresh report from AS, Lunin will be staying put at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer as he does not wish to leave Real Madrid. Instead, the 24-year-old wishes to fulfil his contract with the club which expires in 2024.

Lunin, whose current market value stands at €5 million, signed for Los Blancos five years ago in 2018 but was immediately loaned out to Leganes.

The Ukrainian international then had temporary stints with Real Valladolid and Real Oviedo, but has been at the Bernabeu since 2020.

However, game-time has been hard to come by for Lunin owing to the brilliance of Thibaut Courtois in goal. As such, the 24-year-old has made only 17 appearances at the club in the last three years.

It had given way to speculations that Lunin could look to leave this summer in search of regular minutes. Real Madrid, for their part, were open to the sale and had even started looking for possible replacements for their second-choice goalkeeper.

However, those plans are now likely to come to a halt as Lunin has decided to stay put at Real Madrid and see out the remainder of his contract which expires in 2024.

There is unlikely to be much change in his situation as far as game-time is concerned next season either. However, there has been a change of heart on the player’s side, who does not wish to depart right away and would potentially be on his way out as a free agent next year.

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.
