Real Madrid are bracing themselves for a busy summer ahead. The club have been rocked by news of Marco Asensio’s potential exit, with Paris Saint-Germain on the verge of securing his services in the coming summer.

Karim Benzema might follow suit as the veteran forward is strongly considering a move away from Santiago Bernabeu, even though he was close to extending his contract at Real Madrid earlier this year.

Now, COPE (h/t Madrid Xtra) is claiming that another Real Madrid player, who will not be out of contract this summer, could shockingly leave the club at the end of the season.

It might not necessarily be bad news for Real Madrid, though, considering there are multiple first-team stars that the club would like to get rid of. Eden Hazard tops the list, but it appears the Belgian has his heart set on remaining at the Bernabeu until 2024.

Therefore, a more logical candidate could be Ferland Mendy. The left-back has become an unwanted figure at Real Madrid, following his struggles with injuries. Many have also pointed out his limited potential.

This has led to speculations linking him with a move away from the Bernabeu, with Arsenal among the clubs interested in his services. Real Madrid, for their part, appear willing to sanction the sale of the left-back this coming summer.

The club have also kickstarted their pursuit of a new left-back, with Alphonso Davies emerging as the potential candidate. However, signing the Canadian international could prove to be tricky, even though his contract renewal talks with Bayern Munich have been postponed until next year.

Real Madrid, though, have brought back Fran Garcia, who will join the team at the start of next season. It remains to be seen whether the youngster has what it takes to become a prominent fixture in the Real Madrid starting eleven next season.

    It looks nothing I said/revealed of the name of the “still-contract player” mentioned to be capable of leaving the team still in contract.
    Well Real Madrid should try and sign new capable players before the new season in order for us to heal from pain we suffered.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
