Villarreal Target Real Madrid Striker After Soldado’s Injury


Real Madrid transfer market looks very quite this summer but the club is working 24 hours to solve all the problems in the last days of the market. Zidane is still waiting for some acquisitions but, in the meantime, the club is putting in place all the players who have no space in the squad in different clubs.

However, there is still a lot of work to be done. For instance, Los Blancos want to give on loan Mariano, the forward who has surprised everybody in the pre-season tour around United States.

Mariano Díaz played last year in Castilla -the second team of Real Madrid- and scored 30 goals in 40 appearances with the team. The Dominican Republic international was born in Spain in 1993 and he has been linked with Real Madrid since 2011. First, he played in the third team, after in the second and this year he made his debut with the first team under Zidane’s management.

The Dominican player showed his skills against big rivals in the US Tour but it’s going ot be very difficult for him to secure a spot in the first squad. Mariano is ready to fight for this position but the club thinks that it would be better for his career to find a club where he can enjoy more minutes.

At the moment, most of the clubs of La Liga have shown interest on hiring Mariano. Leganés, Alavés, Osasuna, Las Palmas… Mariano can choose among several teams but recently Villarreal has overtaken all these clubs.

Roberto Soldado suffered this week a major injury and the Spaniard will miss the first six months of the season. Therefore, the club needs to find another striker. While the Ecuatorian player Roberto Caicedo is also targeted, the name of Mariano has appeared in several media.

Villarreal is playing the Champions League preview this season and, if they are able to knock out Monaco, the Spanis team will play in the group stage. For this reason, Villarreal could be the perfect destiny for Mariano, if he finally can enjoy some minutes in one of the top clubs of La Liga.
