Gayá returns to Real Madrid’s agenda

Gayá returns to Real Madrid’s agenda


Although in the recent days, all the medias have spoken about the signing of Atlético Madrid’s player Theo Hernández, who is currently playing at Alavés, now the COPE ensures that Real Madrid continue searching for left backs and they are thinking in Valencia´s player Jose luis Gayá, a player who was already linked with Los Blancos in the last summers.

The Spanish left back is playing a good season, recovering his best level despite he has suffered some physical problems during the current season. Many important teams are interested in his services because his future in Mestalla is uncertain after the poor season Valencia are doing. It looks like there will be many changes in Valencia and Gayá can be a good signing if Theo Hernández doesn’t sign with the team managed by Zidane. The Spanish left back wants to change of team and play Champions League next season and Manchester City seem to be one of the most interested teams in signing him.

Zinedine Zidane wants to sign a left back with the aim of having a player who can replace Marcelo when the Brazilian needs to rest, because nowadays only the player who plays in that position is Fabio Coentrao. Nacho can also play in the left back but his natural position is the full back, where he is playing currently. Gayá can be a good signing because he will accept his role of being Marcelo’s substitute, being the player who can play in the games where Zidane decides to make several changes in the line-up, as the one played at Butarque against Leganés last week.

This season José Luis Gayá has played 26 games, accumulating 1950 minutes and two assists. This signing can cost Real Madrid an amount of €20M, although as we said before, Gayá would only be an alternative if Theo Hernández finally doesn’t sign with Real Madrid.
