FIFA TRANSFER BAN
Madrid are able to recover the six players out on loan
Real Madrid have been left unable to trade during the next two trasnfer windows but the FIFA ban won't stop the club from bringing back the players they have out on loan.
The transfer ban imposed by FIFA has left Real Madrid without the possibility of signing players but doesn't not stop the club from reinforcing the squad with players who were loaned out to other clubs. Three Madrid players are gaining experience in LaLiga Santander, one is in LaLiga 1|2|3 and two others are at German Bundesliga sides; two of the six have yet to make their senior debuts with Los Blancos.
Marcos Llorente (Alavés)
His aspirations of making it with the first team were limited to just three appearances under Rafa Benítez - one of which was in the ill-fated Copa del Rey tie against Cádiz (he played the full 90 minutes). With Castilla, Marcos Llorente showed class and poise in the centre of the park, and also a potent right foot shot. He has madridista DNA: his father is Paco Llorente and tracing back the genetic lineage, he's Paco Gento's great nephew, Grosso's grandson and the nephew of Julio Llorente basketball player, José Luis Llorente.
First team appearances with Real Madrid: 3 (0 goals). Minutes: 131 | Games with Castilla: 62 (3).
Games in 1st Div.: 1. | Games in 2nd Div.: 0. | International: Under-19 (3 games).
Borja Mayoral (Wolfsburg)
Following an impressive season with Castilla and a promising first team debut, the 19-year-old has followed in the footsteps of Dani Carvajal and taken himself off to the Bundesliga to show what he can do when he gets regular run-outs. Two seasons ago, Mayoral smashed 50 goals in all competitions for Castilla, the U-19s and U-18s - and was crowned a European champions at U-19 level with Spain; but last season, despite making his senior debut, he found him in the shadow of Mariano, who was simply stunning for the reserves.
First team appearances with Real Madrid: 6. Minutes: 280 | Games with Castilla: 38 (17).
Games in 1st Div.: 6. | Games in 2nd Div.: 0 | International: U-21 (2), U-19 (16) and U-17 (1).
Vallejo (Eintracht Frankfurt)
Real Madrid signed him from Zaragoza in the summer of 2015 employing the same formula they used with Marco Asensio — allowing the player to stay put at his club for another year on loan. In Vallejo's case, he ended as one of the Maños' four captains. Vallejo was part of the same Spain U-19 team as Mayoral and Asensio which won the Euros in the category in Greece in 2015 and this season, during his loan stint at Eintracht Frankfurt, he's sure to come face to face with Mayoral. The centre-back has never played for Real Madrid at any level, or featured in the top division.
First team appearances with Real Madrid: 0. | Games with Castilla: 0.
Games in 1st Div.: 0. | Games in 2nd Div.: 53 (1). | International: U-21 (3), U-19 (11), U-17 (3) and U-16 (1).
Diego Llorente (Málaga)
He's started his second season in the top flight, and made three appearances with Madrid's senior side —Mourinho handed him a three-minute bit part in the 4-2 win over Osasuna; Ancelotti brought him to replace Fabio Coentrao in the league meeting with Almería almost 12 months later. On loan at Rayo last year, Diego Llorente confirmed his credentials as the centre-back for the future and already looks like he's first choice under Juande at Málaga.
First team appearances with Real Madrid: 3. Minutes: 65 | Games with Castilla: 63. | Games with Real Madrid C In Div. 2B: 29 (1).
Games in 1st Div.: 37 (3). | Games in 2nd Div: 32 (1). | International: Senior side (1) and U-20 (5).
A team of Diego Llorente and Lucas Vázquez's in the generation of players who played for Castilla in their most recent spell in the Second Division; he remained in the side when they dropped a division. A winger who gets among the goals, he's gaining valuable experience in the top tier. He spent last term on loan at Espanyol (mostly coming off the bench) and this season with Sporting, he has started both of the team's game so far.
First team appearances with Real Madrid: 0.| Games with Castilla: 74 (13). | Games with Real Madrid C In Div. 2B: 38 (8).
Games in 1st Div.: 28 (1). | Games in 2nd Div: 37 (6).
De Tomás (Valladolid)
The young striker has no experience in the top flight but did maake his first team debut in the Copa (15 minutes coming on for Isco against UD Cornellà). De Tomás, who will turn 22 in October joined Valladolid on deadline day with the hope of gaining regular playing time which he was deprived of last year at Córdoba.
First team appearances with Real Madrid: 1 (0). Minutes: 15. | Games with Castilla: 62 (14). | Games with Real Madrid C In Div. 2B: 15 (8).
Games in 1st Div.: 0. | Games in 2nd Div:: 59 (13).
Apart from the above six players, Madrid have another 10 youth academy players out on loan, including Álvaro Jiménez and Lucas Torró who are plying their trade in Liga 1 | 2 | 3 at Getafe and Oviedo respectively.
