Real Madrid have found themselves in a spot of bother late in the transfer window, following the untimely injuries to Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao.
The club have roped in Kepa Arrizabalaga to replace Courtois, but are said to be not looking for a replacement for Militao.
In the meantime, though, the club are set to receive a small financial boost, which may aid them in their endeavours in the market.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid are expected to receive a small financial boost from the sale of Jorge de Frutos.
The right winger has recently joined Rayo Vallecano in a deal worth €8 million, half of which could go to Real Madrid.
This is because Los Blancos had reserved 50% of the player’s rights when they sold De Frutos to Levante for €2 million in 2020.
De Frutos came through the youth ranks at Real Madrid and went on to play close to 40 matches for the Castilla outfit. But he failed to make a single competitive appearance for Los Blancos senior team.
Some other reports suggest that De Frutos’ transfer to Rayo Vallecano could be worth €4.5 million, in which case Real Madrid would stand to receive just a little over €2 million.
Although the €4 million financial boost is unlikely to impact Real Madrid’s transfer plans for the coming weeks, it is a strategy the club have used heavily in recent years.
The Spanish giants have retained 50% rights of young players leaving the club or the academy, in search of regular minutes elsewhere.
The club have done so for players such as Sergio Arribas, Carlos Dotor, and Antonio Blanco in recent times. This strategy allows them to either earn profit on the future sale of these individuals or sign them back on a cut-price deal.
Real Madrid were able to do the latter when they brought back Fran Garcia for a fee of just €5 million earlier in the year.

Four games into the new season, there is little doubt as to who Real Madrid’s MVP has been.
The Merengues’ new signing, Jude Bellingham, has had game-defining contributions every time he has stepped onto the field and has arguably been the signing of the summer.
MARCA shower praise on the young midfielder and call his presence on the field to be vital for Real Madrid.
Their praise for the new signing only grows as they state that Bellingham has had a positive impact in Real Madrid through not only his versatility and vision on the field but also his offensive and defensive abilities. His future at the club is bright, they conclude.
The 20-year-old has been phenomenal in La Liga so far, scoring a stunning five goals in just four appearances. Further, he has provided one assist in the process.
The English international pioneered Los Blancos’ comeback against Almeria from a goal down by netting both the equaliser and the winner on the night.
He then scored a late winner at Municipal de Balaidos to help his team past Celta Vigo before scoring a stoppage-time winner against Getafe at home.
Needless to say, the team’s strong start to the season has largely hinged around Bellingham’s unstoppable form.
Beyond his attacking contributions, Bellingham has also shown game intelligence to construct positive attacking situations and great commitment to his defensive work, be it pressing from the front or sitting back to help the team.
A lot was said about Carlo Ancelotti’s decision to switch to a 4-4-2 diamond formation ahead of the 2023-24 campaign.
While it was one of his best options, the system appeared to have several gaping holes, especially on the defensive front.
Adopting the 4-4-2, however, appears to have played into Bellingham’s forte. The youngster has made the attacking midfielder’s role his own and is now the first name on the manager’s roster.
In a little over a month, Bellingham has already enthralled fans with goals, assists, and top-quality defensive work on the field.
