Real Madrid failed to win their second game in a row across all competitions as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Girona in La Liga. The result came after Los Blancos’ 3-2 loss to RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League.

The draw means that Barcelona have now closed down the gap to the top of the table to just one point. And, Real Madrid are feeling the heat as they look to hold on to the first spot in the table before teams break for the FIFA World Cup next month.

There were a couple of contentious moments in the Girona encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu as Rodrygo Goes had a goal ruled out and the visitors were given a penalty for an alleged handball by Marco Asensio.

The decisions have not gone down too well in the Madrid camp, with Carlo Ancelotti questioning the referee’s decisions in his post-match presser.

Now, MARCA reports that the Real Madrid personnel are angry about the decisions at such a crucial juncture of the season.

Not very long ago, Los Blancos amazingly had three goals chalked off for offside in the La Liga clash against Elche and they were once again at the receiving end of some questionable calls by the match officials on Sunday, leading to an angry reaction.

The Real Madrid officials are said to be wondering the sort of reaction the situation would have drawn if it happened with either Barcelona or Atletico Madrid.

“If this had happened to Barcelona or Atletico, what would people say,” is a sentiment that is reportedly reverberating in the Real Madrid offices after the game against Girona.

It is important for Ancelotti & co. to put the incidents behind and focus on the upcoming matches against Celtic, Rayo Vallecano, and Cadiz. Winning all three matches would ensure that they go into the World Cup break with momentum and advantage over their rivals.

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.
