Over the past few days, there has been a lot of speculation about the future of Real Madrid forward Rodrygo Goes.

The 23-year-old’s statements about his future wherein he left the door open for a future exit, have seemingly opened a can of worms.

Manchester City, for one, have emerged as suitors for the Real Madrid attacker heading into the summer transfer window.

Ancelotti sees Rodrygo as a starter

One of the major reasons behind speculations over Rodrygo’s future is that Real Madrid are set to sign Kylian Mbappe while Endrick will also be arriving at the club this summer.

It is bound to increase competition for places in the squad and there are some concerns that it will be Rodrygo whose minutes will take a hit.

However, according to Edu Aguirre on El Chiringuito, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti continues to see Rodrygo as a regular starter for next season despite the imminent new arrivals.

Ancelotti has always been a strong backer of the Brazilian international and supported him through a couple of lean periods during the ongoing campaign.

And, the Italian tactician continues to retain faith in the 23-year-old former Santos man and sees him as a regular in the starting lineup for next season.

Despite that, the speculations refuse to go away, with Rodrygo’s statements about Man City being the best team in the world only adding fuel to the fire.

Indeed, during an interview earlier this week, the Real Madrid forward said: “For me, it is the best team in the world, the one that plays the best football.”

Rodrygo signed a new contract with Real Madrid until 2028 only last November. And it now remains to be seen if he stays put or opts to leave.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
