According to a report from MARCA, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin is uncertain about renewing his contract or leaving the team this summer. 

Lunin still has one more season left on his current contract, but he needs to decide whether to extend it or seek a new opportunity elsewhere. 

He knows that if he stays with Real Madrid, he will go back to being the backup goalkeeper to Thibaut Courtois and after having had a taste of being the starting goalkeeper for a better part of the season, he is unsure if he wants to accept this secondary role again.

What changed between Lunin and Real Madrid?

Earlier in the season, Lunin had a stretch where he was consistently playing as the first-choice goalkeeper. 

During this period, there were reports suggesting that he might be inclined to stay with the club, feeling assured of his position. 

However, the situation changed when Carlo Ancelotti chose to play Courtois instead of him in the UEFA Champions League final. This decision seems to have disrupted Lunin’s plans and made him reconsider his future with the club.

Real Madrid had been concerned that if Lunin did not start in the final match against Borussia Dortmund, his representatives might persuade him to leave the team

Unfortunately for the club, this concern has now become a reality, as Lunin feels disappointed and let down by being passed over for such a crucial game.

Real Madrid appreciate Lunin

Despite this setback, Real Madrid still hold Lunin in high regard as they value his positive attitude and his skills as a goalkeeper. 

Back in May, discussions about renewing Lunin’s contract were reportedly close to being finalised. However, much has changed since then, and the keeper is now having serious doubts about staying with Real Madrid.

The decision about whether to stay or leave is a significant one for Lunin. He has to weigh the comfort and prestige of being with a top club like Real Madrid against the desire for more playing time and a more prominent role. 

If he chooses to leave, he could potentially become the main goalkeeper for another team, gaining more exposure and experience. 

On the other hand, if he stays, he remains part of one of the most prestigious football clubs in the world but with limited playing opportunities.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
