Real Madrid attacker the only one guaranteed a contract extension – report

As things stand, Real Madrid are set for a mass exodus in the summer of 2023. Several veterans of the club have their contracts running out in June, and there seems to be no internal hurry to renew the deals.

ABC (h/t RM4Arab) brings to light some critical news about the status of the expiring contracts. According to the Spanish outlet, Karim Benzema is the one player who is guaranteed to sign a new deal at the Bernabeu. The futures of Luka Modric, Marco Asensio and Dani Ceballos are all unclear and will depend on their performance in the rest of the campaign.

The one unique case at the club is that of Toni Kroos. Real Madrid wish for him to renew his contract for at least another season and have even made an offer. However, the hurdle in this case is from the player’s side as he contemplates retirement at the end of the season.

While Kroos is set to make his decision by the end of February, his teammate Luka Modric seems to have scuffed an extension that was written in stone. The Croatian International has seen a steep dip in form since the FIFA World Cup, and there are now serious doubts over his renewal at the Bernabeu offices.

The midfield will not be completely depleted, however, for Dani Ceballos has earned himself the attention of directors in recent games. The Spaniard’s impactful performances continue to tempt Carlo Ancelotti to include him in the future plans and might be enough for him to put pen to paper.

Asensio, on the other hand, will have to prove his worth in the second half of the campaign. Reports earlier today state that Ancelotti eyes him as a good backup and that his future will be sorted in the coming weeks.

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.
