The nearer Madrid-based team is eager to sign Castilla's top players.
Jose Felix of Marca has reportedly received reliable information that Real Madrid and Getafe are now engaged in negotiations for the long-term transfer of Juanmi Latasa. Both teams have talked about a permanent deal in which Real Madrid would keep 50% of Latasa’s rights and add a buy-back mechanism. The 21-year-old attacker might possibly get a restricted loan. The same source claims that Getafe is also interested in acquiring playmaker Sergio Arribas, despite the fact that he just extended his contract with Real Madrid by another two years.
With the arrival of Borja Mayoral, Jaime Seaone, and Jack Harper at Getafe, the team appears to have discovered a method for luring the best players from La Fabrica to Real Madrid. The president of Getafe, Angel Torres, is a Real Madrid supporter and socialite; the two teams have always enjoyed a tight relationship. Former Castilla graduates Ruben De La Red, Esteban Granero, Roberto Soldado, Dani Parejo, and Pablo Sarabia all played for Castilla either on loan or in permanent transfers with a buy-back provision.
Latasa hoped to fill in for Karim Benzema this season, but Ancelotti didn’t even give him a chance in the preseason. The athlete is now eager to join another squad where he will receive greater playing time as a consequence. That appears to be Getafe, where he will run into Borja Mayoral, a former teammate.
Ancelotti has faith in the first-team players he has at the moment, and if the 21-year-old decides to remain, he won’t overtake any of the seasoned attackers.
After the departures of Kubo, Jovic, Bale, and Mayoral, his departure will further limit Real Madrid’s options in attack.
Getafe have also been connected with former Real Madrid Castilla winger Jorge De Frutos in addition to Latasa and Arribas. Quique Sanchez Flores, a former Real Madrid player, is helping the nearby Madrid-based club put together a strong team in an effort to escape relegation and return to the European competition.
