Year after year, Real Madrid Castilla are picked apart —with the best young talents often plying their trade at a higher level. The likes of Borja Mayoral, Martin Odeegard, and Oscar Rodriguez have all been sent on loan deals after a short stint with Castilla in order to further their development. Spanish publication, Marca, reports that Jorge De Frutos and Argentinian winger, Franchu, may be the next in a long line of Castilla products to make the jump up to the first division. Getafe President, Angel Torres, was spotted this morning at Valdebeas with Real Madrid representative, Juama Lopez. The discussions apparently centered around a potential loan deal for both De Frutos and Franchu.

Getafe and Real Madrid have always had good relations. Angel Torres is a self-confessed Real Madrid fan and socio of the club. Past dealings between the two clubs include: Ruben De La Red, Granero, Miguel Torres, Soldado, Dani Parejo, and Pablo Sarabia among others. Getafe will obviously be looking to add some depth and talent to their squad as they are posied to take on a third front next year— either the Champions League or Europa League. De Frutos and Francho will not be the only Castilla players to be shipped to a new team this summer— Cristo Gonzalez and Javi Sanchez will be two other names at the top of many clubs lists.

Franchu, a pacey and direct winger, is currently recovering from an ACL tear and was only able to feature in 13 matches this season, scoring three goals. Meanwhile, Jorge De Frutos, who also plays primarily on the wing, has featured in 29 matches for Castilla scoringseven goals and assisting in five.
