A season that opens the way ends, in the Real Madridstill summer further complex than expected even by the club itself. The output of BenzemaAsensio’s ‘no’ to renewal, a Nacho with more than one foot out and players on the starting ramp who are counted on but want to leave (Lunin) or make cash (Mendy) opens up a range of unknowns. There are only fifteen fixed footballers in the plans of the next campaign and one from them it will be a newcomer: Fran García.
The regeneration of the team has become a task that goes far beyond a strategic signing as Bellingham. Now the entity needs to go to the market to cover all the lines and in some, in duplicate (or triplicate).
Only fourteen confirmed for the next course…
At the moment, only fourteen footballers have a guaranteed box office for the next season in Valdebebas. Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Rüdiger, Lucas Vázquez, Fran García, Camavinga, Kroos, Modric, Tchouameni, Valverde, Rodrygo and Vinicius. The club does not want to get rid of them and they, for now, have not ruled to the contrary. Madrid has the spine almost intact with pillars tied under long, untouchable contracts. From Courtois (2026) to Camavinga, Valverde and Vinicius (2027) through Militao and Rodrygo (both until 2028). More is expected of Tchouameni in the transition to his second year, which emulates an improvement similar to that experienced in a similar situation by Camavinga. very old as Modric y Kroos will be able to continue contributing quality in their last dance particular.
Nacho, Ceballos, Lunin, Brahim… doubts about the project
Madrid has to get to work in a certainly uncomfortable way, because there are two substitutes who are out of contract and that the club wants them to continue but who still have not transmitted their decision: Nacho, who took photos with his trophies on the lawn of Bernabéu, and Ceballos, who, as Ancelotti commented, “is thinking about it”. The club is very sensitive to Nacho’s weight as second captain and exemplary homegrown player, so he is not being pressured. Ceballos is a different case, because as AS reported, in addition to the white proposal, he has two more interesting offers from Champions teams. The utrerano must decide if he accepts to continue in a condition quite similar to the current one (in salary and function within the team) or look for other pastures.
are the names more lavishbut there is other six more too in the air. The moon still thinking about going out this summer, Odriozol destiny will be sought (ends in 2024), Vallejo He will receive the advice to leave again (although it does not seem because of the work) and Madrid is more than open to receiving offers for Mendy. More tricky is making a firm decision about Brahimwhich is counted but whose billboard in italy makes him a candidate for possible sale. It also remains to be known the final destination of Alvaro Rodriguez. Ancelotti dared to proclaim him a first-team player for next season, but that was before the earthquake with Benzema and the signing so far along Joselu. Al Tour Uruguayan will be presented with a mixed option. Being in the dynamics of the first team but having a record with Castilla.
a naked attack
Because Madrid is going to go with everything to the striker market. He only has two forwards, come y Rodry. And Ancelotti, although he says that they will look for each other calmly, publicly claims goal. Brahim, if he stays permanently, could contribute his quota (in 124 games with Milan, 18 goals) but not carry specific weight in that matter. Joselu Yes, he is called to add something more because he is a specialist (31 goals in the last two seasons between Alavés and Espanyol). But Madrid is aware that they need one or two more references at the spearhead and with European experience. Your idea of get hold of Harry Kane and/or Havertz It has come to acquire, now, a decisive weight in Madrid’s aspirations for 2023-14.
