Real Madrid Castilla star Sergio Arribas is quickly emerging to be one of the transfer market’s hottest prospects. The youngster has been placed on the market by the Merengues due to the severe competition for places in the first team, and the response to his availability has been overwhelming.

Mario Cortegana provides an update on the prodigy’s situation. According to The Athletic journalist, Sevilla are among the candidates seriously interested in the star but are not the only one in the race.

Real Betis are also keeping a close eye on his situation. Los Verdiblancos see the youngster to be a replacement for Sergio Canales whose future is in the air and hope to make a swoop for him based on the veteran’s decision.

Girona and Mallorca are amongst the other candidates involved in the race. The former have lost steam in the youngster’s pursuit while the latter are now better placed than before.

Real Madrid value Arribas’ profile and do not wish to give up complete authority over his future. The club strongly trust in his high ceiling and do not doubt his ability to make it big.

Los Blancos thus only offer 50% of his rights at the moment and are demanding €10 million in exchange for the same. And it remains to be seen as to which club is the fastest to respond.

The 21-year-old is one of the Castilla side’s most promising attacking midfield talents. However, staying at Real Madrid would mean direct competition with Jude Bellingham, Eduardo Camavinga, and Arda Guler amongst others, paving the way to stagnation in his development.

Real Madrid and the player thus agree that a move away would be the best solution for all parties involved. A return in the future based on his growth remains a serious possibility.

Real Madrid enjoyed strong representation at the recently concluded European Championship and Copa America.

Dani Carvajal is the only player who returned with silverware, but it is safe to say that all the team’s stars on international duty put up displays to be proud of.

The attention now turns towards the season that lies ahead. Carlo Ancelotti and co. have already begun working ahead of the new campaign, and the internationals will begin rejoining training in the coming week, as relayed by MARCA.

The early returnees

Having suffered an early elimination in the Euro with Croatia, Luka Modric is set to return to training as early as the beginning of the coming week.

The veteran recently renewed his contract with the club and will be looking to prove that he still has it on his feet.

The team’s new signing, Endrick, will join forces with Los Blancos on Wednesday as he begins a new chapter in his short, yet illustrious career so far. All eyes will be on his official signing and presentation.

Meanwhile, Arda Güler and Antonio Rudiger are expected to return to training under Ancelotti towards the end of the week.

The late entries

Players who progressed relatively deeper into the recently concluded tournaments have understandably been granted a longer vacation, and both the French and English representatives of the club enjoy that luxury.

Needless to say, no specific date has been set for their return, considering that their campaign in the Euro ran deep into July.

The team’s Copa America stars, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eder Militão, meanwhile, will report to training on July 31st. Federico Valverde, who finished third with Uruguay, will likely enjoy a longer hiatus.
