We have seen plenty of Real Madrid players being linked with moves away from the club in recent months. In the case of some, it is easy to see why that might be the case. They have barely featured and do not seem to have a future in Carlo Ancelotti's team. But in the case of others, things do get a bit more complicated.

When Thibaut Courtois, arguably the best goalkeeper in the world, got injured before the start of the season, Real Madrid needed someone to step up. The club made the decision to sign Kepa Arrizabalaga on loan from Chelsea rather than rely on Andriy Lunin.

But a short-term injury to Kepa allowed Lunin to get a run of games. Since then, he has been able to prove that he deserves to be Real Madrid's first choice between the posts.

It seems almost certain that Kepa will return to Chelsea in the summer. But what does the future hold for Lunin? At one point, he seemed almost certain to leave. But now, the picture could be a bit different. He does have a decision to make though because when Courtois returns, one would expect him to get straight back into the team.

If Lunin were to leave, he would have no lack of world-class options to pick his next team from. In fact, it looks like Manchester United, PSG and Bayern Munich have all made proposals for him already. As reported by Fichajes, journalist Eduardo Inda explained on El Chiringuito de Jugones:

"There is a player whose contract ends next year and the normal thing is that Madrid wants him to continue, but he is thinking of leaving this year or next year as a free agent if he is not a starter. He has three offers. One from PSG, but there is Donnarumma, another from Manchester United and a third from Bayern Munich. I'm talking about Lunin. He's a good goalkeeper, he's showing it."

Lunin certainly has a tough decision to make. On one hand, he has finally gotten into the Real Madrid team on a regular basis after years of warming the bench. Would he want to leave that spot right now and start somewhere else from square one?

On the other hand, though, there is no guarantee that that spot will be his when Courtois is back. In fact, it is unlikely. But Lunin does have the opportunity to make the most of his good form and end up joining another top team where he will be the undisputed starter in goal from the off.
