Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz looks set to leave the club this month after losing shirt number to star signing , Eden Hazard with a host of clubs interested in his signature, say Marca.
Read also: Hazard’s new shirt number had belonged to Mariano Diaz, who is still at the club, but he will now wear the No.24, despite rumours linking him with a move to Monaco.
On Monday, Marca reported Real Betis were keen on a deal – even if Espanyol striker Borja Iglesias is their number one target – while the same paper had linked Monaco with a move.
Marseille are also said to be interested in the player while Espanyol – who could lose Iglesias – and Valencia, whose Rodrigo Moreno may depart, are also said to be keen.
The 25-year-old netted twice in Madrid’s 3-2 win over Villarreal in May in what was only his third league start of the campaign – whilst he is thought to be a peripheral figure again next season.
He has not featured in any of the club’s three pre-season friendlies to date while Tottenham have also been linked with a move for the striker who spent the 2017/18 campaign in Ligue 1 with Lyon.
It is said that the biggest stumbling block with regards to any move would be the striker’s €5m annual wage.
The Dominican forward had previously netted just two goals across all competitions with game-time limited and suffering a series of hamstring injuries.
