Andriy Lunin is keen on leaving Real Madrid in the January transfer window, with Bundesliga and Premier League clubs interested.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Andriy Lunin is unsettled at Real Madrid and wants a January exit. The 24-year-old is not happy with his situation at the Santiago Bernabeu amid his struggles to secure regular game time for Los Blancos. Meanwhile, clubs in the Bundesliga and Premier League are keen on signing him.
Andriy Lunin has barely made any progress in his career since joining Real Madrid from Zorya Luhansk in July 2018. The Ukrainian international was one of the best young goalkeeping prospects in Europe when he arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu. But game time has been hard to come by for him.
The 24-year-old would have hoped for better fortunes this season after Thibaut Courtois picked up a long-term knee injury. But Kepa Arrizabalaga’s arrival has considerably restricted Lunin’s game time. He has managed only two appearances thus far this season, keeping one clean sheet.
Meanwhile, Kepa is eager to complete a permanent move to Real Madrid in the 2024 summer transfer window. The Chelsea loanee is even ready to lower his wages to continue his stint with Los Blancos. But for the Spanish international to remain at the Santiago Bernabeu, Lunin’s position comes under threat. And the player is ready to call it quits at Real Madrid.
This is not the first time Lunin has considered leaving Real Madrid. He was also contemplating a departure from the Santiago Bernabeu earlier this year before an exit failed to materialise. And Courtois’s injury probably robbed the 24-year-old of a summer move away from Real Madrid.
But Lunin’s desire might materialise in the January transfer window, and he does not have a shortage of suitors. The report claims that clubs in the Bundesliga and the Premier League are keen on signing him.
The Ukrainian international’s decision to possibly leave Real Madrid makes sense, as his career is not going anywhere. But it will be interesting to see if Los Blancos will entertain any offers for the 24-year-old Ukrainian international in the January transfer window.
