Having joined Real Madrid on-loan in the summer, not much has been said about Guillermo Varela.
In the last couple of months, Zinedine Zidane has publicly spoken very highly of Varela and believes he has a future at Real Madrid, which indicates the Spanish club could exercise their purchase option which came as part of his loan deal.
At this stage it isn’t known whether Varela will return to Man United or not but Real Madrid are clearly in at least considering the prospect of signing the Uruguayan full-back on a permanent deal.
Varela has quietly been enjoying his football out at Madrid but this weekend took to social media to share in his happiness after he scored for Madrid’s Castilla side in a 4-0 triumph.
It was a very tidy goal from Varela. Norwegian wonder-kid Martin Odegaard floated in a cross and Varela lashed in a left footed drive from outside the box. Not bad for a full-back.
