Lucas Vazquez 29 at the start of July and is weighing his options after a mouth-watering approach from Qatar arrived on his desk.
Real Madrid are La Liga champions. As they beckon on their title defense, they will be embarking on the journey without one Castilla graduate.
Lucas Vazquez was a peripheral figure in their success and is lower down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu. The winger is entering the final years of his peak as a footballer.
Marca has reported that Vazquez wants a few days to consider his future. There is interest from Qatar and he wants the Spaniard want to decide what he wants to do.
Los Blancos want to reduce their wage bill and have told the academy graduate they will support his decision. Moreover, the Spanish giants want to cash in on the player before the expiration of his contract next summer.
Vazquez is not an integral part of Zinedine Zidane’s plans. The winger made a paltry 18 La Liga appearances last year, most of them coming from the bench.
There is also interest in the attacker from clubs in Europe. Both Napoli and Tottenham have shown interest but a proposal has not arrived on Real Madrid’s desk.
