Real Madrid ‘s striker situation is currently intriguing. The progress of Alvaro has been a positive this season. The 18-year-old hasn’t seen much first-team action yet, but in his few appearances, he’s already proven that he’s capable of making a difference. However, there is another young striker at the club right now who arrived with high expectations but has had an up and down season. That is, of course, Iker Bravo.
Iker Bravo is likely to stay for another year at Real Madrid
Bravo’s time at Real Madrid has been, to say the least, fascinating. According to Transfermarkt data, he has three goals and three assists in four UEFA Youth League games this season. However, he has only scored twice in 20 appearances for Castilla. Bravo is clearly not ready for the first team just yet. At the same time, it appears that the Spaniard has a lot of unexplored potential. Real Madrid appears to have big hopes for him, despite his poor numbers.
Real Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, and Bravo have agreed to extend the loan for one more season, until June 30, 2024, according to AS. The club believes in the striker’s abilities. Bravo turned 18 earlier this year, and it’s worth noting that. As a result, it should come as no surprise that he needs some time to adapt to the Castilla level. His performances in the UEFA Youth League are very encouraging. Let us wait and see what the future holds for Bravo. He appears to be remaining at Real Madrid for at least another season. However, the Spaniard must ensure that he takes advantage of the opportunity. Else, he may be returning to Bayer Leverkusen soon.
Bravo is expected to be an exceptionally useful attacker, so having the chance to buy him for only €10 million if he continues to show his potential next season may be important for Real Madrid. Still, Real Madrid fans should be patient and watchful because Bravo will play for Castilla for one more season. Meanwhile, Alvaro Rodrguez will most likely be the young attacker who will assist Karim Benzema next season.
