Andrey Lunin is one of the players who could leave the Santiago Bernabéu this summer, despite starting several games after Courtois’ injury. The Whites are looking at one of the most promising players in their youth team to make the jump to the first team.
He is 18-year-old goalkeeper Fran González, who currently plays for the Juvenil B team, and the coaching staff has several very positive reports that could encourage him to move to the first team without even going through Castilla, which says a lot about the young goalkeeper’s potential at the moment. He would face a great challenge in his football career being Courtois’ understudy.
Fran’s possible transfer to the first team depends largely on Lunin’s final decision, as Ancelotti’s decisions about the goalkeepers’ starting positions have been very changeable. This situation could make the Ukrainian goalkeeper think about a possible move even though he has one year left on his contract, leaving a free spot that the Whites could fill without investing money in signings with a player with great potential from the youth team at the moment.
