Madrid will not renew Luca Zidane after 16 years at the club

Luca Zidane (Marseille, 22 years old) He is no longer a Real Madrid player. The goalkeeper ended his contract this June 30 (extended until the end of the season by the coronavirus) and Madrid will not renew it. As confirmed Soccer transfers, ends a relationship of 16 years, in which the goalkeeper has been growing and climbing categories to the top, but without success at the top.


And it is that he leaves having played only two official matches with the first team (against Villarreal and Huesca, he received two goals in each). “I did not put my son, I put a Real Madrid goalkeeper”Zinedine Zidane said after lining him up against Huesca. But the label of last name It is something that went with the doorman all these years. The vox popul It was inevitable.

This season he has played on loan at Racing de Santander, consummating the descent to Second Division B and finishing as bottom of LaLiga SmartBank. Their statistics are gray: 33 participations, 42 goals conceded (1.27 average per game) and 101 stops (3.06 per game). Although -evidently- not all the many were exclusively his fault.

Arrived at La Fábrica in 2004 as one of the great jewels of the football scene. He is international in the lower categories of France, with which he was U-17 European champion in 2015, being the least goalscored goalkeeper of the championship.

In Valdebebas they highlight their game with their feet, something reasonable having Gen ZZ in the veins. Under the sticks it is very agile and fast, but suffers too much in the air game. His height (1.83m) does not impose. Say goodbye to Real Madrid, to his dream, without great fans. Luca now has to make the leap and vindicate himself, but he must do it far from the Santiago Bernabéu.

Lunin won the game

The Ukrainian season in Oviedo has convinced and, a priori, he is counted on as a substitute goalkeeper for next season. Areola ends contract after final assignment. Diego Altube, who has been exercising as a third goalkeeper this season, does not seem to have options to climb beyond there. Thus, Madrid's goal next season would be for Courtois and Lunin (both with a contract until 2024).


Montpellier, very close

Luca always shown a predilection for Ligue 1 and this opens an opportunity. Montpellier wants him and is already negotiating his hiring as a free agent. He was under the sticks of the French club this season Rulli, but it has concluded its transfer and will not continue, as announced on their social networks.

He Montpellier finished eighth this season with 40 points, caressing Europe but with no luck in the final stretch (only one victory in the last four days). The club is already preparing a new project for which they would have Luca Zidane as the starting goalkeeper.

Theo and Elyaz, the last of the dynasty

Of the Zidanes there are only two left in Real Madrid. Confirmed the non-renewal of Luca and with Enzo in the ranks of Almería, all eyes fall on the shoulders of Theo and Elyaz. The first is 18 years old, measures 1.93m and is currently a member of the juvenile A; the second, at 14 years old, is a left back and plays in the cadet B. They are the last two stones of the dynasty.
