The impending arrival of Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid in the summer is generating a lot of excitement in the Spanish capital.

The French superstar is widely regarded as one of the best in the game currently and has long been a target for Florentino Perez & co.

After failed attempts in the past, the dream signing will finally arrive this summer, with Mbappe expected to join Real Madrid for free once his PSG contract expires.

However, it might not be good news for everyone though as the Frenchman’s arrival could impact the game-time of some other players, including a certain Rodrygo.

Arsenal, Man City, Manchester United, and Liverpool on alert

As such, SPORT reports that Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Liverpool are all closely watching the situation of Rodrygo, weighing up a possible summer move.

The 23-year-old has been a permanent fixture in attack for Real Madrid over the past couple of years, along with Vinicius Jr. But Mbappe’s arrival could change things for the Brazilian, for the Frenchman will walk right into the team.

Furthermore, there will be competition from the likes of Joselu, Brahim Diaz, Arda Guler, and Endrick, who will also be arriving in the summer.

As such, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal have all enquired about Rodrygo’s situation, exploring the possibility of a summer move.

Rodrygo non-transferable

However, Real Madrid will not entertain any offers or proposals for Rodrygo as they consider the Brazilian ‘non-transferable’.

Rodrygo signed a new contract with the Merengues that runs until 2028 and his exit clause is €1 billion.

As such, the aforementioned English clubs are aware that any move for him will be hard to pull off unless the player himself asks to leave.

But that is also an unlikely possibility as Rodrygo is happy and settled at Real Madrid. He accepts that there will be more competition next season and his minutes might get reduced, but he is committed to the club.

The 23-year-old feels protected by Ancelotti, who values the attacker a great deal for his hard work, discipline, and commitment.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
