This summer, the Real Madrid He decided to move in the transfer market to reinforce the team in the places where he saw that there could be deficits. The white set was made with the services of Thibaut Courtois Y Álvaro Odriozola, and it seemed that there would be no more incorporations. However, there was a last minute change.
There was a lot of talk about the need to sign a center forward. With the march of Cristiano Ronaldo, the scoring work was in the hands of Gareth Bale Y Karim Benzema, in addition to Borja Mayoral, the replacement of French. However, the team decided to make one more move to reinforce their great lead and take over Mariano after a season of the most successful in France.
The striker had several points in his favor to be chosen. The first was the price. Mariano's return would cost him considerably less than any important striker who could be in the market. The second reason was his scoring explosion in the Olympique de Lyon, where he scored 21 goals in 45 games. And, finally, your knowledge of the club. After his passage through the quarry and his year in the first team, the adaptation of the Spanish-Dominican would be much faster than that of another player they could incorporate, and the results were not long in coming.
Great debut and image in Madrid
Although Mariano did not debut with Real Madrid in his first call, the debut of the striker could not be better. Before him Leganés and the Athletic Bilbao had to watch the match on the bench, but his big moment came in front of the Rome in the Champions League.
Mariano jumped to the field to little more than fifteen minutes by the end of the game. At last he fulfilled the ground he had been desiring after leaving to the Ligue 1, but I could not expect it to be so good. In the discount of the game scored a real goal that came through the squad and round the great game of whites.
Since that game has not managed to see the door again, although bad luck has had much to do. The clearest example is the duel against the CSKA Moscow, where he could make his second target if the club had not avoided it. But, in spite of this, the sensations that Mariano has left on the pitch have not been bad. He has reached almost 230 minutes in which he showed the desire to succeed that must have any footballer who wants to stay at Real Madrid for many years.
Work to convince Lopetegui
Mariano is one of the few players who have stayed in the capital of Spain during this stoppage of selections. Lopetegui has few players, but this allows him to be able to observe each player more in detail, and in the case of the squad player it is not different.
The only thorn that Mariano has left is to start a game as a starter this season. In all eight games he has played so far, in all of them he has jumped from the bench and in the second half. Therefore, the challenge of Catalan is to convince his coach that he is ready to enjoy and that he deserves his first opportunity in an initial eleven.
The I raised wait around the corner on the next day of The league. The internationals will return to work with Madrid a few days before the match, unlike Mariano, who has worked under Lopetegui during these days. In addition, if Benzema's injury was prolonged more than expected in time and prevented him from being ready for the duel in the Santiago Bernabeu, would be the best candidate, the most logical, to occupy the position in the lead that, until now, has enjoyed the French. Therefore, during these two weeks of break, Mariano has the ideal situation to convince Lopetegui that he deserves this opportunity.
