Lucas Vazquez’s Madrid stint
Lucas Vazquez has spent the majority of his senior career plying his trade with Real Madrid.
The now 29-year-old has never really been a huge star at the Bernabeu, but he has still proven himself to be a useful squad player.
All told, the Spaniard has notched 238 appearances across all competitions for Los Blancos, in which he has scored 26 and assisted 53.
It is the current campaign, though, which has largely seen Vasquez play some of his better football and actually be handed starts on a regular basis.
Vazquez eyed by Premier League sides Chelsea & Man United
Vazquez is a right-winger by trade, and he has still played there on a number of occasions this season.
However, Zinedine Zidane has primarily used Vasquez as a right-back this term, whether that be as wing-back in a back-five or as a more traditional right-back.
But Vazquez’s stint in the Spanish capital now appears to be coming to an end.
This comes with his contract up in the summer and no fresh terms having been agreed.
According to ABC, Vazquez has rejected a contract offer from Real, which was said to last for three seasons and include a 10 per cent pay-cut.
ABC go on to add that all of Manchester United, Chelsea, AC Milan and Bayern Munich have offered him a four-year contract, with a salary higher than what he receives at Real, which they claim is around €3.5m a year.
Given Vazquez is not naturally a right-back, Man United may perhaps be bettered placed looking elsewhere for competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka. But with Thomas Tuchel implementing a back-five system at Chelsea, perhaps Vazquez could be a decent addition for the Blues.
