The 2022/23 season for Real Madrid came to an unofficial end on Wednesday night after the team’s collapse at Etihad. With La Liga long gone from their grasp and the Champions League no longer on their calendar, Los Blancos do not have anything to play for in their final four games of the season.

The planning for the 2023/24 campaign thus takes centre stage as the manager and administration attempt to reach a consensus over the team’s requirements.

According to reports from AS, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will meet with manager Carlo Ancelotti next week to plan for the coming season. The club supremo wishes to get a first-hand account of what the manager wants for his next venture.

The meeting will primarily focus on the new signings that the club plan for June and the positions that require urgent reinforcements. One expects the centre-forward, wing-back and midfield positions to take centre stage in the proposed discussions.

At the same time, player exits will also be discussed, with stars such as Ferland Mendy, Eden Hazard, and Alvaro Odriozola likely to be shown the exit doors.

Another important agenda of the event will be the contract renewals of players whose deals expire in June. While the board have been working actively towards the negotiations with players like Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Dani Ceballos, and Marco Asensio, none have been finalized yet.

All signs point to Karim Benzema, Kroos, and Modric staying at Real Madrid for another season. Doubts linger over the futures of Ceballos, Asensio and Nacho Fernandez and the upcoming meeting between Perez and Ancelotti could prove decisive on that front.

A third and final objective of the official discussion could be the future of players on loan at other European clubs. Players like Brahim Diaz have shown great promise in their time away from the Bernabeu and there could be a decision made over whether their future lies in Madrid next season or not.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
