Fran, 23, studied at the Real Madrid Academy for 6 years before leaving the team in 2021 to join Rayo Vallecano.
Carlo’s statement confirms previous reports linking Garcia’s name to his former club, especially since Real Madrid owns 50% of the player’s contract rights.
The young player has caught the eye of Javi Alonso, the Bayer Leverkusen manager who wanted to include him during the latest winter transfers.
Garcia’s move to Real Madrid could be a sign of the imminent departure of Ferland Mendy, the Spanish club’s left-back.
