The La Liga team of the season has been announced, and five Real Madrid players have made the cut for the selected 15 players.

The team features five defenders, with Eder Militao representing Madrid. Jules Kounde, Nahuel Molina, Alejandro Balde, and David Garcia are the other defenders in the list. Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen has been given the nod as the goalkeeper.

There are two Madrid midfielders in the team out of a possible five. Federico Valverde and Luka Modric make the cut, while Toni Kroos has been overlooked despite a largely impressive season.

Pedri, Mikel Merino, and Celta Vigo Gabri Veiga round off the centre of the park.

Karim Benzema and Vinicius Jr are part of the attacking quadrant, with Pichichi leader Robert Lewandowski and arguably the Liga Player of the Season, Antoine Griezmann also included in the list.

According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid are shifting its focus towards securing new contracts for key players Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy in the upcoming weeks.

Both Carvajal and Mendy have contracts that are set to expire in 2025. While there have been some challenges regarding Mendy’s future, Real Madrid have remained clear about their intentions for the Euro 2024 winner.

Over the past year, Carvajal has had an impressive run, adding three more trophies to his collection with Real Madrid, including the Euro 2024 championship. 

Interestingly, he is currently not overly concerned about his future. He hasn’t been thinking much about his contract extension, with the last major news about it surfacing about a month ago.

“At the moment I’m not thinking about leaving Madrid, far from it. My subjective perception is that the day I can’t contribute what I can contribute, I’ll take a step aside,” he said a few weeks back.

On the other hand, Mendy’s future at Real Madrid seemed uncertain due to rumours that he might be replaced by Alphonso Davies. 

However, Carlo Ancelotti has shown an unusually strong preference for retaining Mendy. The manager has made it clear that he wants Mendy to stay. 

He has praised Mendy’s skills and performances throughout the past season, making it evident that he sees Mendy as a crucial part of his strategy.

At present, there is a significant concern within the team that if an agreement is not reached by next summer, Mendy could leave the club on a free transfer. This scenario is something Real Madrid are keen to avoid.

As Real Madrid move forward with these contract negotiations, the focus remains on securing the futures of both Carvajal and Mendy, ensuring that they continue to contribute to the club’s success in the years to come.
