Real Madrid are keen to hang on to Lin Lianming, 19 year old Chinese winger, who played in the Juvenil A side last season.
Real Madrid have already rejected two offers for the player. The first of seven million euros and a further one of 10 million euros from Hebei China Fortune. Hebei have a number of former stars who previously played in Europe in their ranks, including Lavezzi, Gervinho and M’Bia.
Hebei are keen to bring the Chinese gem back to his homeland after he left for Real Madrid last summer. He was signed by the Spanish giants for 300,000 euros from Guangzhou R&F FC, who were coached at that point by former Getafe man Cosmin Contra.
However Real Madrid, who fought competition from Chinese Sides Guangzhou Evergrande and Shandong Luneng last summer for his signature, aren’t willing to let him go at this point, not even for 10 million euros.
This summer, Lin Liangming started in Santiago Solari’s first game in charge of Real Madrid Castilla, with Los blancos beating Gimnástica Segoviana 1-3. Solari’s primary objective, by which all recent Castilla managers have ultimately been judged, is to restore the side to Segunda Division as swiftly as possible.
In the 45 minutes he played, Lin showed his potential: direct football, speed, and agility on the ball. the China U20 international is making quite a name for himself in what is a highly-talented Real Madrid U18 side. The 19 year old left sided winger has four more games to impress Solari before the start of the season. A technically-gifted winger who joins the Under-19s from Guangzhou, he is capable of a changing the game at any moment. He is powerful, direct and very quick with the ball at his feet, qualities that make him an outstanding attacking player.
His next game with Castilla will be on Saturday 30 July against Leganés in the Alfredo Di Stéfano stadium at 19:00.
