Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Leverkusen. The only thing missing is FIFA’s permission for the operation to be carried out.

Iker Bravo is set to become a Real Madrid Castilla player. Los Blancos have reached an agreement with Bayer Leverkusen for the Spanish striker, who will play on loan with a purchase option of close to €6 million next season. The only thing missing is FIFA’s permission for the operation to be carried out since Bravo, who has already passed his medical, is a minor. When FIFA gives the green light, the signing will become official.

Working under Raúl

Real Madrid will sign one of the great prospects of Spanish football. An udisputed starter in Julen Guerrero’s U-17 Spain side, he signed for Bayer Leverkusen from the Barça youth academy. The young striker was part of the German team’s U-19 squad but trained with the first team, with whom he made his debut in the Bundesliga. With no chance of finding a place in the first eleven this season, with Schick and Azmoun ahead of him, and with too much talent to stay in the Under-19s, Castilla’s opened their door to a player who could be decisive for Raúl in attack.

The arrival of Iker Bravo at Castilla also opens the door even more for Latasa, 21, who, as AS already reported, has aroused the interest of several Primera clubs, including Getafe. Rayo Vallecano were also interested in the Castilla player and were about to close a deal for him in July, but the operation cooled down and it seems that they finally targeted other options.
