There are only 15 days left in the summer transfer window. In this time, Real Madrid have to close some deals so the players who don’t have space in the squad can find another team to play some minutes in the season. Especially, some of the young players have still to know their future.
The Spanish Dominican forward Mariano is one of those. The striker is very close to reach an agreement with Leganés, a team just promoted to La Liga for the first time in their history. It could be a good option for the player because Leganés is in Madrid region, so the forward shouldn’t change city and leave his environment.
Leganés is willing to include a clause in the contract where the striker could finish the loan in December. Real Madrid would like to include this option, just in case the team needs another striker and Mariano is performing a good first half of the season.
Mariano has done a really good pre-season with the first team. He scored even a goal yesterday in the Santiago Bernabéu trophy, helping the team to beat Stade Reims. He’s having some opportunities in the summer and he’s taking advantage of the minutes he’s enjoyed so far, scoring another goal in the tour around the United States.
Last year, Mariano was one of the best players of Castilla, the second team of Real Madrid. However, they failed to be promoted to the second division and some of the best players have to leave the club to look for minutes in La Liga. Right now, with Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale or Álvaro Morata, there is no space for another attacker in the squad.
Along with Mariano, Real Madrid need to find another club for Odegaard. The Norwegian is about to close a deal with Rennes but it’s not official yet.
