Real Madrid Castilla coach Raul is blocking Pedro Ruiz from leaving this summer.
The 19 year-old striker has been promoted from the Juvenil A team, where he scored 23 goals last season, and has loan offers from Spain, Germany and France.
Indeed, talks with Alaves have reached an advanced stage, but Raul has moved to block the deal.
The new coach wants Pedro to stay and be part of his first season in charge of Castilla.
Pedro will compete for a striker's position with the Brazilian Rodrigo Rodrigues. Pedro came to La Fábrica from Betis in 2015.
