With the summer transfer window starting to appear on the horizon, Real Madrid are sketching out their plans to make adjustments to their squad.

Kylian Mbappe is all set to arrive and the Merengues are also working to sign Alphonso Davies and Leny Yoro.

At the same time, there could be some exits on the cards with quite a few players seeing their contracts expire at the end of the season while some players’ deals run out next year.

Ferland Mendy staring at an uncertain future

MARCA has come forward with an update on the future of one such player who might no longer be at Real Madrid come next season in the form of Ferland Mendy.

The 28-year-old Frenchman’s current contract with Los Blancos expires in 2025 and as things stand, the defender is staring at an uncertain future at the Santiago Bernabeu.

As per the report, Real Madrid made a fresh contract proposal for Mendy at one point, although the timeline of when the offer was presented is unclear.

However, the proposal was not up to the expectations of the left-back and was shot down as a result.

Now, though, with his deal expiring in 2025 and the prospect of Alphonso Davies arriving in the summer from Bayern Munich, Mendy could end up being sold.

Saudi Arabia interested

The report states that Mendy is among several Real Madrid players who are attracting interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia.

Furthermore, as reported previously, clubs in the Premier League have also asked about the French left-back.

So, there appears to be a strong possibility that Mendy is sold at the end of the season by Real Madrid, with the defender having not been satisfied by the contract previously offered by the club.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
