Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Rafa Mir is reportedly being eyed by Real Madrid.

According to Spanish publication Defensa Central, the heavyweights are considering a swoop for the 23-year-old, who has impressed on loan at SD Huesca this term.

After spells with Las Palmas and Nottingham Forest, Mir has been with Huesca since January 2020, and helped the side achieve promotion to La Liga last year.

In the Spanish top-flight this term, Mir has bagged six goals in 22 appearances, including a recent hat-trick against Real Valladolid.

Mir is said to be a ‘cheap’ option for Real, whose main targets include Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.

The interest from Real stretches back to before Mir became a Wolves player, with Defensa explaining the Galacticos apparently attempted to sign him from Valencia on numerous occasions.

It remains to be seen whether he will secure a move to the Bernabeu – Huesca would surely love to keep hold of him, and do have an option to buy the player at the end of his loan.

But Mir needs to agree to the switch, which may not be straightforward if he knows Real are keen.

It is also not out of the question he could return to Molineux, although that is unlikely.

Wolves could have regrets over Mir

That Real Madrid are reportedly looking at Mir again is a suggestion he has come on leaps and bounds in recent times.

He’s hardly had a chance at Molineux but one wonders if Wolves may regret including an option to buy for Huesca.

It is not out of the question Fabio Silva wil be sent out on loan somewhere for next season, and then there’s the question of how Raul Jimenez will be after his skull fracture.

Patrick Cutrone seems unfancied by Nuno, and one wonders if Mir could end up being one that got away.
