Mariano Diaz’s spell at Real Madrid is set to come to a disappointing end this summer when the forward leave the club at the end of the season. With just six goals in La Liga, he has clearly failed to live up to the expectations of the fans since returning to the Bernabeu in 2018.

However, despite his struggles, Diaz has no shortage of suitors. According to Diario SPORT, the forward has become a hot prospect in the transfer market, with a series of La Liga clubs interested in acquiring his services ahead of the new season.

Sevilla, Valencia, Getafe and Rayo Vallecano are some of the clubs which have been interested in signing Diaz in the past. They have maintained their interest in the player and will approach him once he sees out his contract at Real Madrid.

Despite his struggles at Real Madrid, Mariano has a positive track record of performing in Ligue 1. He has also won almost everything during his time at Santiago Bernabeu. This, coupled with his status as a free agent makes him an appealing target for the clubs.

Apart from Spanish outfits, Mariano has been also courted by several Premier League clubs, including Wolverhampton Wanderers. Jules Lopetegui knows the player well, having with the player during his time at the Bernabeu.

Mariano, for his part, has been reportedly looking out for options across the globe as he looks to take the next step in his career. But should a reasonable offer come, he might not be averse to continuing his career in Europe.

Apart from Diaz, Real Madrid also have another attacker Marco Asensio leaving the club at the end of the season. The Spaniard will become a far hotter target in the market, with AC Milan already seeking the possibility of incorporating him into the team ahead of the new season.

Real Madrid youngster Mario Martin finds himself at an interesting juncture in his fledgeling career.

The midfield prospect is well-liked at the club after impressing with Castilla in the past two seasons while first-team manager Carlo Ancelotti is also an admirer of the player.

While Martin seems to have reached the end of his cycle in Castilla, a spot in the first-team squad is not necessarily available right away, unless Dani Ceballos ends up leaving.

Plenty of interest in Mario Martin

Now, The Athletic reports that Mario Martin is a player in demand in La Liga with half the teams in the Spanish top flight eager to sign him up this summer.

As has already been reported, Real Valladolid and RCD Espanyol are understood to have shown a strong interest in the 20-year-old midfield talent.

However, it appears that there are a plethora of other clubs in La Liga who would be happy to sign Martin from Real Madrid in the current transfer window.

Martin wants to stay

But, the report states Martin is leaning towards staying put at Real Madrid at this point even though the prospects of regular first-team minutes are highly unlikely.

The 20-year-old, who has made four senior appearances for Los Blancos thus far, has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026.

Real Madrid, for their part, are not necessarily ruling out a sale provided a good offer comes along.

Even if they do part ways with Martin, the Spanish capital club would very much likely insert an affordable buyback clause as they have been doing in recent times for departing youth players.
