Crazy Ball – Real Madrid made sure not to permanent Alphonse Areola and preferred to send him back to PSG this summer.
The French goalkeeper was previously brought in by El Real from Paris Saint Germain in 2019. The Spanish League giants 'decision to borrow him was due to Keylor Navas' departure to PSG.
During his time at Real Madrid, Alphonse Areola rarely got the opportunity to appear. This is because Zinedine Zidane always entrusts Thibaut Courtois in goal in both the domestic league and European level.
However, the club based in Santiago Bernabeu still thanks the goalkeeper who has shown extraordinary professional.
Following a statement on the club's official website, Real Madrid confirmed that they had ended Alphonse Areola's loan period. The club would like to thank Areola for his dedication, professionalism and exemplary behavior this season and wish him all the best in his new round.
Real Madrid also thanked PSG for the opportunity they gave them to have Alphonse Areola as part of this club in the 2019/2020 season.
Alphonse Areola himself during his time in Madrid managed to play in nine matches in all competitions. Four of them are in La Liga competition with one clean sheet and play 385 minutes.
With the departure of Alphonse Areola, it will open up opportunities for Andriy Lunin to compete with Thibaut Courtois to become the main goalkeeper at the Santiago Bernabeu next season.
Meanwhile, after leaving Real Madrid, Areola was reportedly the target of Chelsea to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga. Of course it is interesting whether he can return to being the first choice at the Parc des Princes or vice versa will continue his career at Stamford Bridge by playing under Frank Lampard.
