The striker Raúl de Tomás has announced on his Twitter account the new deal signed with Real Madrid until the year 2023. However, the club has not said anything yet, but the player could be in the squad of Los Blancos next season and replace Borja Mayoral as the third striker.
Raúl de Tomás played this season on loan at Rayo Vallecano, another team of Madrid that got the promotion to La Liga after leading the Spanish Second Division. De Tomás was the key player of the team trained by Míchel, scoring 24 goals in 32 games.
“My dream is playing at Real Madrid. I’ve been there since I was little and, like all the youngsters, my dream is playing there”, De Tomás said. He’s closer to his dream because Los Blancos could have thought to bring him into the squad and let Borja Mayoral leave in the summer transfer window. However, we have to wait until August. Then, Julen Lopetegui will decide what to do, but we’ll see De Tomás in the pre-season tour and he could have the chance to convince the new manager.
“Everybody has dreams… Mine started when I was 8 and I started playing in this club being a child. I knew that every step until now was bringing me closer to my dream: being Real Madrid player. Five years more in the club of my life. Thanks, Hala Madrid”, the player wrote on Twitter.
The attacking line could suffer many changes during the summer. No player from the BBC has the spot in the squad secure, with Cristiano Ronaldo asking for a pay-raise, Gareth Bale claiming for more minutes and Karim Benzema on the eye of Ancelotti with Napoli. Borja Mayoral is also wanted for many La Liga teams and he could be given on loan this summer.
