Andriy Lunin made his third loan move in the winter transfer market, joining Segunda side, Real Oviedo. In Spain’s Asturias region, he has finally found continuity. Oviedo manager, Jose Angel Ziganda, immediately placed his trust in Lunin. The young goalkeeper has started all nine of their league fixtures since arriving in January. Despite having tough loan spells at Leganes and Valladollid, Lunin is still seen as one of the top goalkeeping prospects in the world. He spoke with AS about his future and a potential return to Real Madrid after the season ends.

“I prepare myself every day to play for Real Madrid. I will do everything that depends on me to succeed and we will see what happens,” he commented. “As for my future, everything depends on Madrid. They told me that I will finish the season with Oviedo, and then we will talk.”

Lunin’s sole focus now is avoiding relegation with Real Oviedo. The club sit just 1 point off of the four relegation positions — something unfathomable for a historic club who have predominately played in La Liga over their 94-year history.
