At this stage, Mariano is a mystery not only for Madrid fans but for the club itself. No one knows what their intention is for the future, if he will refuse to go out like last summer. The puzzle has even spread to his physical state, given his old back problems that kept him down for some time, or his sports performance, able to go out to play in a Clásico after unpublished months and score a goal.Mariano’s contractual situation is clear. He has signed until 2023. Madrid took advantage of the summer of 2018, in extremis, the right of first refusal that he had over the striker, who had transferred a year earlier to Olympique for 8 million euros. There it had stood out. He recovered it for 23 million. This was explained by Olympique himself in a statement: “(…) for an amount of 33 million euros (of which 3 million are linked to the European Real Madrid rankings) from which 35% of the profits for Olympique will be deducted from Lyon in the transfer in accordance with the conditions established last year with Real Madrid (cost of acquisition of Mariano Díaz by Olympique de Lyon: 8 million euros) “. In addition, Olympique de Lyon will receive 15% of a possible future transfer from Mariano Díaz. If Mariano had gone to Seville for the amount that was being considered, Madrid would have received almost 12 million euros for the operation between Olympique and the Andalusian team, because it corresponded to him 35% of the surplus value that the Hispanic-Dominican had generated. After one season, 2018-19, in which he practically did not count for the different technicians who passed through the bench (Lopetegui, Solari and Zidane), in which he played 22 games and scored four goals, insisted the Premià del Mar in staying in the team although the entity told him that it was better to look for a way out. They had just signed Jovic for 60 million. And football mysteries, Mariano refused. He preferred to stay even knowing that he was not going to play, probably because few teams wanted to assume his high profile. It is estimated that he charges more than 4.5 million net per season. Now, it remains an enigma what will happen to him this summer.
