MarceloJune 30 departure from real Madrid will leave a gap that the club will have to fill on the left flank of the defense, and they are already looking for a solution.
One of the places that seems fixed is for Ferland Mendy, unless there is an impressive offer and the French player himself, who wants to listen to him. His recent performances have not been as good as last season, but his presence in the starting XI helps balance the team defensively.
real Madridplans remain the same. That is, spend almost no money on midfield and defense, focusing everything on strengthening at the top, with Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as the main targets.
In this situation, real Madrid consider two possible options for filling the place of the Brazilian defender.
Real Madrid consider Miguel Gutierrez
First Michael Gutierrezcornerback who has already played in the first team under both Zinedine Zidane last season and this season Carlo Anchelotti. He has now regained his best form after several months of physical and health problems.
He was planned to be more involved in the first team this season, but some defensive doubts and the aforementioned problems prevented him from playing the way he hoped. real Madrid I believe he may need a loan to move to another top division team to come back stronger as Daniel Carvajal did it at Bayer Leverkusen, returning for a decade as one of the top right-backs.
Second option Frank Garciaplayer who plays Vallecano Ray but for which Real Madrid still have some of his rights. MARCA has reported throughout the season that coaches are monitoring the development of the defender.
Thirty-one games in La Liga Santander and the Copa del Rey.
Frank Garcia You have played 31 matches in La Liga Santander and the Copa del Rey. He stands out for his speed and directness in the game. His understanding with Alvaro Garcia on the left flank, Rayo is impressive and has helped Vallecas’ side rise this season.
Defender has been sold Lightning last summer in exchange for two million euros, although Los Blancos retained 50 percent of their rights.
They know that with Frank Garcia they have a valuable talent, although so far his career has been in the youth team and with Rayo. A final decision has not yet been made, but the chances of him returning home to Valdebebas have increased. It should also be remembered that he will help the club meet the required homegrown quota.
The point is that with either of the two options currently being discussed, Real Madrid will stay true to the strategy they laid out weeks ago that aims to focus their funds on their attack.
real Madrid believe that the left-back position can be well covered by either of the two, without losing sight of the different players who have played for other teams in the academy.
