Real Madrid forward Rodrygo has been in the news over the past few days after a statement he made regarding his future.

The 23-year-old insisted that while he is very happy at the club, he said that one never knows what will happen, leaving the door open for an exit in the future.

With Kylian Mbappe and Endrick set to join in the summer, Los Blancos are set to see an increase in competition for places in attack, leading to speculations that Rodrygo could leave.

And his comments have served to only fan the flames further, with Manchester City understood to be among a host of admirers of the Brazilian international.

Rodrygo not leaving

However, as per El Chiringuito TV, Rodrygo has confirmed today that he will not be leaving Real Madrid this summer.

The 23-year-old Brazilian forward is understood to have confirmed that he will be with Los Blancos this year, thus ruling out the possibility of a departure in the upcoming transfer window.

Rodrygo signed a new contract with Real Madrid last November, committing to the club until the summer of 2028.

While it is true that the addition of Mbappe and Endrick will increase the competition for places in the Merengues’ setup, Carlo Ancelotti has proven himself to be capable of finding ways to fit his best players in the team.

Furthermore, it is no secret that the Italian tactician retains tremendous faith in the Brazilian forward and constantly backed him this season when the attacker was finding it hard to score.

So, any talks of an exit in the summer might just be baseless rumours, although things could change in the future if Rodrygo loses prominence in the team in the months to come.

Real Madrid face Premier League, Saudi Arabia competition for free transfer target

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
