Alarms go off for Achraf

first_imgAs for the lateral position at Real Madrid, there is overbooking. There are two players who, today, seem immovable. They are Carvajal (27 years old) and Mendy (24). Predictably, both headlines for the next campaign. Therefore, Zidane (and Madrid) must decide with which of the other four he stays between Marcelo (31 years old and with a contract until 2022), Odriozola (24 years old and a contract until 2024), Reguilón (23 years old and a contract until 2023) and Achraf himself (21 years old and a contract until 2021). Madrid seems determined to sell Odriozola, and since Marcelo still has a lot of contract left, everything indicates that the position of quarterback is disputed between Reguilón and Achraf (who can act in both bands). But Achraf’s contractual situation is not comfortable for Real Madrid at the moment. The player ends his contract in 2021 and is obliged to renew him this summer or sell him to prevent him from leaving the next one at zero cost. According to what this newspaper has learned from sources of the white club itself, there was an intention to present a renewal offer to the side for five years, but the coronavirus crisis has left any movement on hold. “We don’t know what we are going to do yet,” they admit. But the truth is that he is one of the mosda players in European football and Madrid has the lead in the situation. Achraf is one of the names that most encourages the market in this break in soccer due to the coronavirus. The Moroccan winger was one of the Bundesliga’s main draws in his second loan season at Borussia Dortmund. That has sparked the interest of several top-tier teams in taking over their services. Media Europe is fighting over him. In Italy there are several reports that point to a future offer by Juve. Last week it was the Daily Mirror who revealed Chelsea’s interest. And yesterday it was the PSG Talk news portal, very close to the Parisian entity, that spoke of PSG’s project to make an offer this summer.In objective terms, Achraf’s loan to Borussia Dortmund for two seasons has been a resounding success for Madrid and for the player: So far, the Spanish-Moroccan winger has played 65 games and 5,249 minutes, has scored ten goals and given 17 assists and has lifted a German Super Cup. Giving Achraf two years was a great decision for Madrid (as happened with Carvajal at Bayer). When he left, tIt had a market value (according to the specialized website Transfermarkt) of 7.5 million euros. Achraf is currently worth a minimum of 60 million.LEON KUEGELER & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>LEON KUEGELER (REUTERS) “In my head is the idea of ​​continuing to grow”Achraf has made several statements in recent months about his immediate future. In the month of October, for example, he gave an interview to AS: “I cannot lie, of course I would like to succeed in Madrid, it is my home. But if not, I will try to succeed elsewhere. That is my dream”. The reality is that, as of today, the Moroccan seems to consider having a leading role in any other circumstance: “Here in Germany they are giving me the opportunity”, said a few weeks ago to the cedanma SER. “In my head is that I want to play and I want to continue growing.” The idea of ​​Real Madrid is in the same sense. At only 21 years old, the idea is that he can continue to work, preferably abroad, to give Marcelo time to finish his contract. But, in any case, everything remains to be defined.last_img
