Bayer Leverkusen CEO confirmed today that Iker Bravo will be open to returning back to Spain and he has chosen Real Madrid as per multiple reports.
The player wants to go back to Spain, but Carro believes it would be incorrect and that staying in Leverkusen, where he could train daily with the first squad and play for the U19 team, would be best for him. “We’ll sell him to whoever offers us the finest terms,”
This week, there have been numerous stories in Spain claiming that Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are the two remaining contenders, with the following criteria determining who would prevail: Iker Bravo is preferred, and the team that pays Leverkusen the most second. Leverkusen’s share of a potential sale is also important.

Frenkie De Jong latest
The Blues are planning to make a double move for Barcelona before the transfer window closes on September 1.
The agents of Frenkie de Jong have arrived in Barcelona for a “meeting” as Chelsea and the Dutchman are getting closer to a transfer agreement, but there is still a lot of work to do to secure their £77.5 million advantage over Manchester United.
The future of the 25-year-old has been in doubt ever since the transfer window first opened. At first, it appeared that the midfielder would be joining Erik ten Hag’s team. The Red Devils are now concentrating on an alternative £77.5 million transfer swoop because they are unable to play Champions League football.
Due to this, Todd Boehly has had the freedom to take his time with the negotiations. According to the most recent reports from The Times, the two clubs are almost ready to agree on a fee, which will mark the completion of step one of the process.
Even though some media outlets continue to express their confidence that United will eventually sign the Holland star, the second and most important step is that any prospective suitors must persuade the player in question to leave Barcelona. This step appears to have cost United in this situation. Everything is currently being disrupted by the ongoing dispute over deferred contract wages.
Boehly is reportedly willing to pay the €17 million debt that Barca owes to De Jong, which could expedite the entire process.
The Catalan giants, though, are threatening further legal action as per The Athletic, which could complicate things even more.
Adam Newson, the chief Chelsea correspondent, gave the most recent information based on his knowledge of this constantly-evolving circumstance. Given how challenging de Jong’s circumstance is at Barcelona, he said, “I’ll keep this as straightforward as I can!
I believe Chelsea is confident they will reach a deal with Barcelona for de Jong, possibly for around £60 million. De Jong’s willingness to leave Camp Nou is still in question, especially considering that Barcelona owns him for €17 million in deferred wages. On that, agreement would have to be reached.
The former Ajax star’s agents are in a “meeting” in Barcelona to hash things out in order for this complicated situation to be resolved, whether that be by Barca’s number 21 agreeing to a reduced salary contract like Gerard Pique has done or to finally cut ties after this dispute, according to ESPN.
According to Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, the Blues and Barcelona are currently in the “final stretch” of negotiating a transfer fee. The harder part will then begin: persuading De Jong to leave La Liga and join another team.
