A recent report from journalist Sergio Gomez has revealed Ajax’s interest in Real Madrid shot-stopper Andriy Lunin. The Dutch giants had apparently pursued the highly-rated goalkeeper recently, holding talks with his entourage over a potential move to Amsterdam.
However, Lunin had no desire to leave Real Madrid as he is happy with his life at Santiago Bernabeu. As such, he was swift to reject the advances of Ajax. The Eredivisie giants have not been the only one to have pursued Lunin lately, as clubs from Premier League and Bundesliga have also tested his resolve.
Lunin, though, has stood firm and remains content with his current role in the team. The Ukrainian international is currently serving as the second-choice goalkeeper and the primary alternative to Thibaut Courtois.
But despite his desire to remain a part of the Real Madrid setup, the upcoming summer transfer window could be an important one for Lunin, as far as his future is concerned.
With his contract at the Bernabeu expiring in 2024, Lunin is expected to hold talks with the Whites over his future in the summer. The two parties are set to arrive at a definitive decision on whether or not the goalkeeper will continue at the Bernabeu, knowing it will be the last opportunity for the club to cash in on the player.
Real Madrid, though, are extremely happy with Lunin’s progress, along with his professionalism. Not to mention, the goalkeeper has always responded well when called upon. He was notably a star performer during Real Madrid’s Copa del Rey game this midwek.
But with a grand total of just six league appearances since the 2020/21 campaign, questions are being raised over Lunin’s role at the club. And if the Ukrainian international continues to have a limited role in the first team, it will not come as a surprise to see him move elsewhere in the near future.
