Real Madrid announced on their official website that they’ve sent Ukrainian goalkeeper Andriy Lunin to Real Valladolid on a loan deal which will expire in June 2020.

Lunin needs minutes to keep developing as a player and while he was expected to be the reserve goalkeeper behind Thibaut Courtois this season, Navas’ decision to stay forced the young keeper to leave the club.

Valladolid seems to be a solid destination for him. Lunin couldn’t become Leganes’ starting goalkeeper last season, so this time both Madrid and Lunin need to have better luck.

Lunin is a promising goalkeeper but he definitely lacks the experience to contribute for Madrid on a regular basis. However, it will be very interesting to see if he can actually perform well in La Liga this season in order to get a better look at the kind of goalkeeper he can be in the future.

Pay close attention to Lunin’s games, he has tons of potential.
