Cordoba eye Alvaro Medran loan deal


Cordoba are looking to agree a deal with Real Madrid to take midfielder Alvaro Medran on loan, the club’s president has said.

The two teams met at the weekend, with Real winning 2-1 in a close encounter, coming from behind thanks to goals from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

Ahead of the game, Carlos Gonzalez had spoken to reporters about wanting to bring players in during the transfer window and said he would speak to Florentino Perez when the directors met to have lunch prior to the match.

“Medran played in the youth ranks at Cordoba, and I’d be happy to have him again,” he told SER Sports.

He added: “I’ll give you a scoop. At lunch, I’ll ask Florentino about signing Medran. My sporting director’s asked me to do so. If Madrid make him available [for transfer] and the player [wants to be transfered] too, for sure I’ll say yes [to signing him] because there’s nothing better than one of your own coming back in the Primera. At lunch I’ll beg Mr. Perez to loan us Alvaro.”

Youngster Medran has made five appearances for Real this season and is highly rated by the coaches at the club. His path to first team football at the Santiago Bernabeu has been complicated following the arrival of Lucas Silva, so a loan move may allow him to help his development.
