Blancos are interested in Lunin extending his contract with the club

Goalkeeper agent Real Andrey Lunin Jorge Mendes will arrive in Madrid this week to discuss the future of the Ukrainian goalkeeper with the club.

Real Madrid is reportedly interested in extending Lunin’s contract, which currently runs until the summer of 2025. The Blancos continue to see the Ukrainian as a backup goalkeeper for Thibaut Courtois. At the same time, Lunin himself does not want to extend the current agreement, and his decision was influenced by Courtois’s appearance in the starting lineup for the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund (2:0), when the Belgian had just recovered from a long-term injury.

If Lunin does leave Real this summer, the main candidate to replace him is Porto and Portugal goalkeeper Diogo Costa. The problem with the transfer of the Portuguese goalkeeper may be his high release clause of 75 million euros.

In April, it was reported that Lunin had received offers from Manchester United, Bayern Munich and PSG (the Parisians were allegedly ready to pay 18 million euros for the goalkeeper).

Representatives of Atletico, Betis, Juventus and Aston Villa also contacted Real. Arsenal and Newcastle also included Andriy in the shortlist, and they are ready to pay 25 million euros for the Ukrainian.

Manchester City is also considering the Ukrainian as an alternative to Ederson.

Lunin played 31 matches for Real in all tournaments in the 2023/24 season. The goalkeeper conceded 32 goals and kept 12 clean sheets.

Real Madrid won the Spanish title last season and triumphed in the Champions League.
