Real’s homegrown youngsters are at the centre of the latest Real Madrid transfer rumours. Alvaro Morata has been reported to have received confirmation of his stay, while Denis Cheryshev will very likely be included in one of this summer’s deals.
Morata himself admitted Florentino Perez phoned him after winning the European Under-21 Championship and the Golden Boot with Spain. “We are counting on you for next season”, Real Madrid’s president told him.
Marca claims that Castilla’s midfielder Denis Cheryshev will be departing this summer with a similar buy-back clause to that of Daniel Carvajal. In fact, the Madrid newspaper states it is almost certain the youngster will play in the Bundesliga.
The other main Madrid sports daily claims that Cheryshev could be included in a deal with Malaga to lower Isco’s transfer price. In any case, Real would also include a clause to buy the player back in two or three years, As maintains.
Another problem to solve for Real is the future of assistant coach Aitor Karanka, who still has three years remaining on his contract. Marca claims the Basque is doubting on whether going to Chealsea with Mourinho or going to the United Arab Emirates.
Sources have reported Karanka could be Al Ahli’s next manager, replacing Quique Sanchez Flores, and that Mourinho could have backed his former partner for the job.
Robert Lewandowski staying in Dortmund
Two of the most desired players by Florentino Perez seem a bit further now. Robert Lewandowski has been reported to stay one more season at Borussia Dortmund, after the German club’s general director confirmed the striker will finish his contract.
Meanwhile, Gareth Bale signing is also getting complicated. Tottenham Hotspurs manager Andre Villas-Boas has assured the Welshman “will not leave” this summer.
The Daily Mail also reports that Spurs and Los Blancos are after Brazilian youngster Paulinho. Corinthians midfielder was closed to signing for the Londonians for 17.5 million Euros, but Real’s interfearance has forced them to up the bid, according to the British paper.
