In a summer where there will be no major transfers at an economic level due to the coronavirus crisis, Real Madrid is calm thanks to its previous bets.

The output of Areola leaves you the perfect square. The archer, who came from PSG after the departure of Navas, has come to play all three Cup games, four in the League and two in the Champions League. Minutes that next year will be Lunin.
Despite his youth, Lunin knows what it’s like to go from being a star signing to being on the bench. Your minutes in the Valladolid or Leganes They were not expected despite the commotion generated by his signing. But, despite this, the goalkeeper knew how to reverse the situation to consecrate himself at Real Oviedo.
