Mariano Diaz, a Real Madrid star, is said to be open to leaving the club and is awaiting suitable offers to secure a move away from the Bernabeu. Mariano Diaz, according to an exclusive report from Defensa Central, is willing to leave Real Madrid during the current summer transfer window, despite speculation to the contrary. The 29-year-old is in his second stint with Real Madrid, having returned in 2018 after a successful one-year stint with French club Olympique Lyon. Mariano has had to settle for a supporting role in the squad since his return, as he has fallen behind Karim Benzema and Luka Jovic in the club’s pecking order. Mariano has made just 43 La Liga appearances since rejoining Real Madrid four years ago, with only 11 starts. Last season, the 29-year-old Dominican striker appeared only 11 times in all competitions, indicating where he stands in manager Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. Despite the departures of Borja Mayoral and Luka Jovic to Getafe and Fiorentina, respectively, Real Madrid are still looking to get rid of Mariano Diaz, as Ancelotti does not see him playing a role in his plans for the upcoming season.

However, according to the aforementioned Defensa Central report, that is not the case, as the centre-forward is open to leaving the Spanish capital club. However, it is claimed that Mariano has yet to receive suitable offers from suitors to leave. There had been rumors that Celta Vigo had tabled a bid for the 29-year-old, but his agent quickly shot those rumors down, claiming that there had been no contact from the La Liga club. Mariano’s wages are said to be an issue for interested parties, causing his departure to be delayed. However, according to the report, Real Madrid is willing to consider scenarios in which they could contribute a portion of his salary to facilitate his exit. The striker, for his part, is unconcerned about wages and is looking for a club where he can play regularly. Mariano’s current Real Madrid contract expires in a year, so it’s unclear what the future holds for him.
