Multiple sources reported that the clubs had shaken hands on the agreement and were only down to the final details before completing the transfer. Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio outlined the details recently, and they are somewhat unusual.

The fee for the purchase is going to be €10m, but Real Madrid will have a buy-back clause in the contract. It cannot be activated before June 2026, at which point it would be worth €25m, rising to €35m in June 2027. However, Napoli also have an option that can be activated in June 2025 to pay Real Madrid another €10m and that in turn bumps up the buy-back clause.

In that case, Real Madrid would have to pay €50m to get Rafa Marin back in 2026 and a massive €70m to repurchase the defender in 2027. The sale of Rafa Marin allows Real Madrid to bring in Leny Yoro from Lille, a young promising defender, who is on the radar of most top clubs.

Meanwhile…

Mason Greenwood is set to leave Manchester United this summer following a loan spell at Getafe. He was named as Getafe’s player of the season following a strong loan stint in the Spanish capital during the 2023/24 campaign.

His sole season in Madrid produced eight La Liga goals and six assists and Getafe were open to the idea of keeping him at the club. However, despite their interest in retaining him, Getafe are not able to meet United’s €40m asking price, while the Red Devils are looking to sell him for at least €50m. With his future in Manchester uncertain, the 22-year-old looks set to move on, with sustained interest from Italy.

Napoli and Juventus have already registered an interest in signing him, if they can agree a deal with United, but there is now a third Serie A team monitoring him.As per an exclusive from the Daily Mail, Lazio have entered the race, with a formal move flagged up at Old Trafford.

Lazio are hoping to gain an edge on their domestic rivals with an opening £30m bid but they are also open to a loan. For Napoli, they will make a concrete move once they are able to sort out the future of Kvaratskhelia, with the Georgian pushing for a move away from the club in recent days.
