first_imgWe got the latest from Real Madrid’s summer transfer attempts, they are willing to get in the way of Mariano signing with Sevilla FC.The Sevilla FC board of directors is fuming at this very moment because the player they want the most from this transfer window, might get snatched from under their noses by Real Madrid. In another example of what the most powerful clubs in the world are able to do against the weaker ones, Florentino Perez realized that he has an option to buy Mariano from Olympique Lyonnais for nearly half of what Sevilla was going to pay for him in the next 48 hours due to a clause on the player’s contract that gives Real a preference to buy him regardless of other offers. This latest information was divulged by Spanish newspaper OK Diario, which is a media outlet that is very close to Florentino Perez and usually has privileged information about the most interesting market deals that the club are planning. The president was not going to buy anyone else apart from the players he already had, mainly because he decided that they were only going after either Neymar or Mbappé if the opportunity presented itself.El Lyon abre la puerta a Mariano… para fichar por el Sevilla https://t.co/tLFFDd9QRA— OKDIARIO (@okdiario) August 27, 2018Mariano’s past as a Madridista.But given the player’s past as a Real Madrid Castilla player and the good relationship that Florentino always had with him, Perez is seriously considering getting in the way of the deal with Sevilla that was about to close for €40 million in the next hours. Olympique Lyonnais has already spoken with Real Madrid about that contract clause, they have decided to wait for the club’s response on Mariano and they have reportedly agreed to accept €22 million from Los Blancos before Friday. Sevilla FC is quite angry about this, because they had already closed the deal for the player and now they are going to have to start from scratch by looking for a suitable alternative to the Dominican/Spanish striker. Just as it’s happened several times before as yet another sign of superiority, Real Madrid will win another battle outside the field with a club that could potentially become a threat in La Liga if they get one of Ligue 1’s most important players from last season apart from Paris Saint-Germain’s front three.MARIANO DIAZ, NUEVO JUGADOR DEL #REALMADRID.

The problem for Mariano during his time at Real Madrid was Zinedine Zidane, the French manager always liked other players more than him and never gave him a chance to really prove himself with the first squad. Mariano ended up leaving for no more than €8 million to Olympique Lyonnais and it only took him one season to prove that he is the real deal, even Julen Lopetegui (Real Madrid’s current manager) was analyzing the possibility of taking Mariano to the World Cup instead of other strikers like Morata or Rodrigo because he was born in Catalonia and he is eligible for the National Team. Today a new opportunity presents itself for a player who can compete with Karim Benzema, but has different qualities compared to the Frenchman and can be a great new addition to Los Blancos.#Inda: “El Real Madrid tiene HASTA EL MIÉRCOLES para CERRAR a Mariano y LO VA A HACER”. #ChiringuitoInda pic.twitter.com/0yW9r1lQmJ— El Chiringuito TV (@elchiringuitotv) August 27, 2018Time limit for Mariano’s transfer.We will have to wait at least another 48 hours to know if the deal will go through or not, because Real Madrid still needs to respond to Lyon if they want the striker and Sevilla is expecting for the player to break all negotiations with them if the Spanish giants do go after him. The reason Real Madrid wouldn’t pay the same €40 million that Sevilla was going to pay for Mariano, is because Los Blancos currently own 35% of the player’s rights and this is exactly what has diminished his final price tag but only in the case that Real Madrid would buy him. All the Sevillistas in Spain are going crazy on social media against Real Madrid, they have been roughly criticizing the club because of the dirty play they are using once again to completely waste all the work the Andalucian club has done in the last couple of weeks in their attempt to sign Mariano for their club. Real Madrid also decided to pursue this deal because they would be a laughing stock if this player ends up becoming one of the greats in another club, when they had the chance to buy him for a lower price all this time.ABC Sevilla: Real Madrid CEO Jose Angel Sanchez has informed Sevilla’s president of Real Madrid’s intention to buy-back Mariano from Lyon. #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/CZ36cvP1Oo— RMadridHome (@RMadridHome_) August 28, 2018What do you think about this tactic that Real Madrid is using against Sevilla?
