Real Madrid is in very advanced talks with Xavier Rathan-Mayes, a 1.93 m and 30-year-old Canadian who currently plays for Enisey of the VTB United League, where he has had a very outstanding season, earning averages of 25 .4 points, 4.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game. His emergence has not gone unnoticed by several European teams, although Real Madrid would be very close to closing his signing, according to Lithuanian journalist Donatas Urbonas, from the specialized website BasketNews, who is usually very well informed.

For weeks now, the Whites have been preparing for the upcoming season without Rudy Fernández, who is set to retire, and perhaps without Sergio Rodríguez either. And unless the situation changes radically, Mario Hezonja will also leave for Barcelona or Panathinaikos, so Rathan-Mayes would cover the team's needs both in direction and scoring capacity.

Rathan Mayes played three seasons at Florida State University, where he averaged 12.4 points, 4.5 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1 steal. And after not being chosen in the 2017 draft, in March 2018, he signed a temporary ten-day contract with the Memphis Grizzlies. In July 2018 he signed a contract with AEK Athens of the Greek League. In February 2021 he landed at BC CSU Sibiu of the Romanian League, and in August 2023 he signed for Melbourne United of Australia. Currently, he was playing for the Russian Enisey where he has stood out with performances like the one he starred in against the powerful CSKA Moscow , with 30 points and 8 assists.
