Real Madrid teenage forward Gonzalo Garcia made his first-team debut last night, against Cadiz. While many have just witnessed him in action, it must be remembered that the 19-year-old has been has been sending waves of his excellence while representing the youth team.

Such has been his impact that a report from MARCA has emerged, saying that he had an offer to join a Premier League side last summer, but the offer was eventually rejected.

A tempting offer distracted him

Indeed, this past summer, an enticing offer emerged from the Premier League, offering both significant financial and professional excitement for young Gonzalo.

An unknown Premier League team set its sights on the Castilla player, however, the swift and decisive response that followed put an end to what could have been considered a ‘heist’.

Instead, the player opted for a contract renewal, marking the beginning of this commitment with a visit from the footballer’s father to the Santiago Bernabeu offices. 

There, he expressed loyalty and love for a club that had been his son’s dream since childhood, solidifying a decision that would not be easily forgotten.

More opportunities await the youngster

It is to be noted that only the absences Carlo Ancelotti has at the moment culminated in Gonzalo making his Real Madrid debut last night. 

“I’m quite happy, at first a little nervous but when you enter the field that feeling goes away and I’m quite grateful,” he said after the match

“I’ve been a Real Madrid fan since I was little. I’ve always dreamed of playing with the first team since I entered the academy. I’m very grateful for the opportunity,” he added.

His debut marked a significant moment as he had previously been called up three times without making an appearance in the games against Getafe, Real Sociedad, and Union Berlin.

Currently, there is an expectation that Vinicius Jr. will be sidelined for a considerable period due to injury.

Although Real Madrid has enough players to fill the void, it is reasonable to expect that Garcia will seize the opportunity to accumulate more playing time until then.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
