An insight into the plans of the powers that be at Spanish giants Real Madrid for up-and-coming talent Sergio Arribas has been provided on Friday.
For those not aware, Arribas is a 21-year-old Blancos academy product, who has spent the last couple of seasons on the outside looking in at ongoings in Carlo Ancelotti’s squad.
After appearing off the bench on eight occasions in 2020/21, the hope was that the midfielder would subsequently kick on, to provide competition for the more established engine room stars on Real’s books.
The two seasons since, however, have seen as much fail to materialise.
Though he did notch his first goal at senior level during the FIFA Club World Cup back in February, all told, Arribas was afforded a paltry 17 minutes of La Liga action last time out.
In turn, it should perhaps not come as a major surprise to hear of the youngster being placed on the chopping block at the Santiago Bernabeu.
As per a report from Diario AS, Arribas will not remain at Real next season under any circumstances.
Instead, the one-time Leganes talent will either be loaned out for two years, or sold as part of a deal featuring a 50% sell-on clause.
