It seems Real Madrid’s old-time love for Rafa Mir still exists.
With the striker having a good season at Huesca, on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Galacticos are said to be watching his form and keeping him on their agenda.
That’s reported by website Defensa Central, who say the 23-year-old is seen as a cheap option for a club who have the likes of Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland as their main targets.
Real Madrid are playing Huesca on Saturday afternoon, and Rafa Mir is expected to have many eyes on him once again. With nine goals and one assist this season, he’s one of the threats to Zinedine Zidane’s side.
Loaned by Wolves to Huesca in January 2020, Mir is having a spell at the Spanish side until the next summer. He should end up staying there, as the Spanish side have a buying option over him, and his good time at the club is more than enough to convince them over triggering it.
Now in case Real Madrid really go for him, that’d be just the comeback of a chase which has been happening for years now.
Not long ago, the Spanish media highlighted the fact that the Galacticos tried to sign him from Valencia on four occasions. All of those efforts were turned down by the Mestalla club, who ended up selling the striker to Wolves in a €2m deal in 2018.
Given how known this interest was a few years ago, even Mir himself has previously commented on a potential future move to Real Madrid, telling Marca ‘why not go some day?‘.
With his time at Wolves not going as expected, perhaps he’ll still have a new chance to join the Santiago Bernabeu side.
