Real Madrid transfer window in the summer will be very interesting. Despite the great season of Los Blancos, we expect that some important players will leave the club and some other Galáctico should come to the dressing room. Among the footballers who could say goodbye to Madrid, we find Mariano Díaz.
Mariano Díaz is the third striker in the squad and he hasn’t had many opportunities this season with Los Blancos. Actually, he has only played 8 games in La Liga, never starting, and he’s only enjoyed 115 minutes, scoring one goal against Deportivo de la Coruña at home.
The Dominican Republic striker didn’t want to leave the club on loan this winter transfer window, despite he had many options. Important clubs of the Spanish First Division wanted him on loan, but he thought he might convince Zidane about his importance in the squad. Nothing close to the reality.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are irreplaceable in the team and even Álvaro Morata is struggling to have some minutes despite being the second top scorer of the team this season. For this reason, Mariano Díaz should look for new opportunities in summer, especially thinking that he is only 23 years old and he could improve a lot in the next years.
Many teams will try to get him on loan in the summer, but two La Liga clubs have already showed interest in the striker. According to El Desmarque, Málaga and Betis, both from Andalucía, have already asked about the player.
Málaga, the last rival of Los Blancos in La Liga, have Sandro Ramírez as his star, but the former Barcelona striker, might leave the club in the summer, so Mariano could be the perfect replacement. Betis struggled this season and they want to launch a good project, with Alfonso Pérez Muñoz or Lorenzo Serra Ferrer in the staff. Mariano Díaz could be the star of this project together with Sergio León, Osasuna striker who has been linked with the Andalusian team.
In the next weeks, Mariano Díaz has to think about this future, but his best options would be outside of Santiago Bernabéu. If he succeeds, he could come back like Morata or Carvajal to earn a spot in the squad.
