The striker opts for the white club’s proposal
Iker Bravo will become a new Real Madrid player in the next few hours. After several weeks of intense negotiations with Bayer Leverkusen, a preliminary agreement has been reached for his transfer with a purchase option, as announced by the communicator Ramón Álvarez de Mon.
“Real Madrid will pay 150,000 euros for the transfer. There is a possible increase of another 100,000 if he plays a certain number of games. The purchase option for the first year will be 6 million plus variables and the capital gain that Leverkusen will take from a possible sale will be around 10-15%,” he added. The striker slams the door against Atlético de Madrid, the other team that has been trying until the last moment to get hold of his services.
Iker Bravo was trained in the FC Barcelona youth academy, but the board let him go to Germany due to the delicate economic situation and the lack of opportunities in the first team. At Leverkusen he has shown his talent and Real Madrid has already guaranteed an agreement in principle for him.
He was born in 2005 (he is 17 years old) and is one of the jewels of Spanish football. The idea is that he joins Real Madrid Castilla, but he will be able to enter into dynamics with the elders. It will not be unusual to see him train under Ancelotti.
The white club had been working for weeks to close a signing that is considered strategic for the future. He joins other promises such as Noel López, a transfer that Central Defense advanced exclusively.
Real Madrid’s transfer policy follows a clear pattern. They are looking for young footballers, who are developing in the club, and end up exploiting already signed. Which is not incompatible with some galactic arrivals, because the best in the world will always play at the Bernabéu.
