- Real Madrid will offer the 23-year-old a contract extension
Andriy Lunin to stay in the Spanish capital for longer?
Real Madrid is expected to offer Andriy Lunin a contract extension in the near future. The talented goalkeeper’s current contract already expires on June 30, 2024. The decision will be up to the footballer himself, who, for now, has to accept the role of Thibaut Courtois’ substitute.
Admittedly, the nine-time Ukrainian national player is getting his chances in the current campaign, but this is because the 30-year-old Belgian is struggling with sciatica and is not at Carlo Ancelotti’s disposal. In the long run, Lunin will mostly sit on the substitutes’ bench.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper has been playing in the colors of the popular “Königsberg” team since July 2018, when he arrived at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu for €8.5 million from Zorya Lugansk. “Los Blancos” have sent the Ukrainian on loan three times in the past to clubs such as Leganes, Real Valladolid and Real Oviedo.
Andriy Lunin has let in 4 goals and kept 1 clean sheet in 5 games of the current campaign. The Transfermarkt portal values him at €2.5 million.
