Despite various rumours, a report from MARCA has emerged, saying that Real Madrid left-back Ferland Mendy has no intention of leaving the team this month or at the end of the season. 

The Frenchman’s idea is to continue till the end of his contract as he is very much happy at the club and with Carlo Ancelotti.

Mendy’s ongoing deal with Real Madrid expires next year and the Los Blancos have made no efforts towards extending his stay.

As reported before, the management is currently in disagreement over his future and a decision will only be taken by the end of the season.

Mendy is happy despite knowing the truth

So far, Real Madrid have not shown any interest in extending Mendy’s contract and judging by the look of things, they might decide not to mostly because they are more interested in the acquisition of Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich.

Despite this, the Frenchman plans to stay with the team until his current contract ends as he is happy in Madrid and appreciates the support from Ancelotti and even Davies’ arrival will not change his decision.

He’s confident that the coach trusts him, although the club might see him as a valuable asset in potential trades over the summer.

Mendy seems determined to stay, and if Madrid want to part ways, they would need to make the move, as his contract runs until June 2025.

Someone has to go

Right now, Real Madrid need to decide the next course of action. If Mendy stays, the club may have to let go of Fran García due to the arrival of Davies. Currently, Mendy is ahead of Garcia, who may accept a secondary role but is younger and has a contract until 2028.

It is to be noted that although Mendy started the season at a disadvantage due to a pre-season injury, he is showing signs of returning to his best form. Ancelotti considers him a reliable solution, especially evident in the Super Cup, where Mendy performed well.

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.
