"Lunin is the chosen one": the media reported on the decision of "Real" on the goalkeeper of the national team of Ukraine
The management of Real Madrid intends to retain Ukraine national team goalkeeper Andriy Lunin. The 24-year-old footballer has received an offer to extend his agreement with the "royal club" until the summer of 2030.
This is reported by El Debate. It is noted that our compatriot impressed the coaching staff of the team led by Carlo Ancelotti, who abandoned the idea of a full transfer of Kepa Arrizabalaga, who was loaned from Chelsea.
According to a source who calls Lunin the chosen one, the Ukrainian finally won the competition with the Spanish goalkeeper for a place in the team's core. Andriy will be Real Madrid's No. 1 in the second half of the season.
At the same time, the goalkeeper of the "blue and yellows" has a lucrative offer from one of the clubs of the English Premier League, where he will be able to receive both a higher salary and more playing time. However, this unnamed team is not fighting for high places in the championship.
Ancelotti, who recently signed a new deal with Real Madrid for another two years, does not guarantee Lunin a place in the side next season. But the Italian believes that Andriy can compete with Thibaut Courtois, who continues to recover from a torn ACL.
