- The Vallecano striker, an option that seduces Carletto and that does not rule out the white club if Premià’s ends up leaving
Real Madrid took a step forward in its goal of unblocking the long-awaited exit operation and yesterday made the transfer of Borja Mayoral to Getafe official in exchange for 10 million euros. The youth squad is the third player to leave Carlo Ancelotti‘s team after Luka Jovic (Fiorentina) and Takefusa Kubo, who left 6.5 million in the white coffers after signing him for Real Sociedad.
Now in the Valdebebas offices they want to take advantage of the inertia and release the other two discarded footballers who do not fit into the plans of the Italian coach: Mariano Díaz and Álvaro Odriozola. A separate case is that of Reinier Jesus, who did not travel to the United States tour because he is looking for a new destination since he does not have a place in the squad due to his non-EU status.
Celta knocks on your door
With Marco Asensio and Dani Ceballos determined to continue in Madrid with the approval of Carlo Ancelotti, the most delicate case in Valdebebas is that of Mariano Díaz, who like every year at this point is very reluctant to leave the club under cover of his contract. His high salary (3.5 million euros per season) is an obstacle for his suitors, who are reluctant to take on the entire record of the Hispanic-Dominican.
The last club to contact Mariano was Celta de Vigo . The priority objective of the sky-blue technical secretariat to reinforce his attack was Borja Mayoral, but the definitive departure of the Parla native to Getafe has caused interest to have turned towards Mariano. The operation, yes, seems complicated by the striker’s salary.
Madrid does not rule out RDT
The hypothetical departure of Mariano from Madrid would force the white club to go to the transfer market in search of a guaranteed substitute for Karim Benzema. The technical secretariat, they are very aware of the ill-advised incorporations of Mariano and Luka Jovic and they do not want to rush in the choice of the striker. So much so that it is not ruled out that Madrid wait for the winter market if none of the options that arise in August convince them.
One of the names that have sounded the loudest in recent hours is that of Raúl de Tomás. The former Madrid youth squad is in rebellion at Espanyol due to his disagreements with Diego Martínez and works apart from the rest of his teammates while he looks for a way out.
As KG has learned, the Vallecano striker is an option that Carlo Ancelotti likes a lot and Real Madrid does not rule out his incorporation as long as he can get rid of Mariano. The departure of Premià is a necessary condition for Madrid to seriously consider launching RDT, a striker who made his debut in the first team in 2014 precisely at the hands of the Italian coach.
In any case, and with a month to go until the market closes, Madrid are in no hurry and their priority is to release Mariano.
