Goalkeeper Areola May Not Get a Permanent Contract with Real Madrid


Real Madrid is reportedly not seeking to conclude a permanent contract on the Paris Saint-Germain loan to goaltender Alphonse Areola during this summer’s transfer window.

The 27-year-old joined Madrid as a back-up to Thibaut Courtois last summer and made eight appearances for the Spanish giants during the 2019-20 campaign. Despite the France International playing in Ligue 1 on only three occasions, according to AS, Zinedine Zidane’s side has taken a decision on the future of the stopper.

Meanwhile, Zidane’s team has reportedly agreed to hold Luka Jovic in place this summer given the Serbian difficulties after the arrival of Eintracht Frankfurt. Moreover, Keylor Navas left Madrid last summer to become the current number one goalie of the French team.

In light of all this, the long-term future of Areola in Paris is in doubt. The article says that Los Blancos has opted against a permanent move for Areola, which means that the Frenchman will likely return to PSG at the end of the season.
