The Real Madrid Vs Valencia game earlier this month caused quite a controversy, with Vinicius Junior being the centre of attention.

The Brazilian international was a victim of racial abuse by a certain group of Valencia fans. The incident caused a massive uproar within the footballing world, with many prominent figures in the world of sports backing Vinicius.

Real Madrid themselves have come out strongly, condemning racism and the acts carried out by Valencia fans against Vinicius.

But it seems the whole series of events has only antagonised Valencia fans, who have now gathered outside the Mestalla ahead of the home game against Espanyol. The supporters are signing songs against Real Madrid, reports El Chiringuito.

It is unlikely the fans are going against Vinicius after he was the subject of racist abuse. But it appears they are antagonised by Real Madrid’s allegations that a large of the supporters had hurled racial slurs against the attacker.

Valencia themselves have come out strongly against the allegations, which has strained the relationship between the two clubs, to an extent.

Both clubs, though, should not put too much attention to this recent precession by the Valencia supporters and will look to focus on the games at hand. The upcoming match against Espanyol is a crucial one for Los Che, who are still involved in the relegation fight.

A win should help them move away from the relegation scrap, though. As for Real Madrid, they secured a 2-1 win over Sevilla last night, with Rodrygo impressing onlookers with a brace.

The Spanish giants are currently second in the league table, but there is a possibility they could be overtaken by Atletico Madrid if they lose their final match of the 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.
