In a recent report, Fichajes stated that Real Madrid are hoping to re-sign Rayo Vallecano full-back Fran Garcia. It has been claimed that Los Blancos are eyeing a move to bring the Spanish talent back to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium next year.
Garcia’s Decent Run Of Form At The Estadio de Vallecas
Garcia is having a solid campaign with Vallecano as he has managed to put in a few impressive displays on the left side of their backline. The 23-year-old has participated in 14 matches for the Spanish club this season, picking up a couple of assists across various competitions.
The talented full-back has caught the eye by averaging 1.4 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 1.3 clearances and 0.9 key passes per game in La Liga. He has even been accurate when distributing the ball from the left flank, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 85.6% in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).
His current contract with the Spanish club is set to run out in the summer of 2025. Thus, it makes sense for Los Blancos to launch a move for him and test Valleceno’s resolve next summer.
Is Fran Garcia A Good Choice For Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti?
Garcia is a good tackler of the ball and can sense the danger quickly to make a few timely interceptions on the defensive third of the pitch. He usually clears the danger when needed and can create a few inviting chances for his teammates in the final third. The Spanish talent is primarily a left-back but can also fill in as a left-sided wide player if needed. However, he needs to work on improving his productivity on the attacking end of the field.
We can expect Fran Garcia to add more quality to Carlo Ancelotti‘s backline and increase the overall depth of his Real Madrid squad. At 23, he still has a bright future ahead of him and won’t take much time settling into life in the Spanish capital due to his previous spell with Los Blancos as a youth player.
Therefore, Garcia will be a decent choice for the Madrid giants to consider in the long run. He is good enough to serve as an ideal understudy to Ferland Mendy at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. However, Real Madrid would have to make a sizable offer if they are serious about acquiring the services of the Spanish left-back at the end of this campaign.
