As we approach the summer transfer window, Real Madrid have their task cut out as they look to finalise the exit of their unwanted stars, in order to make space for potential new signings, including Jude Bellingham.

There are doubts over the future of Eden Hazard, with the club likely to force the exit of the Belgian international. Mariano Diaz, on the other hand, will leave the club, with his current contract expiring at the end of the season.

However, one player who looks determined to stay at Santiago Bernabeu is Jesus Vallejo. The former Eintracht Frankfurt defender is among the lesser-used players in the first-team, having fallen behind the likes of Eder Militao, David Alaba, Nacho, and Antonio Rudiger in the pecking order.

Vallejo has been linked with a summer exit in light of his lack of prominence in the team. But according to The Athletic, his entourage has closed the door on a potential exit from Bernabeu in the coming summer.

Even though the player has yet to feature in 100 minutes of action this season, he appears keen on seeing out his contract, which does not expire until 2025.

This is a worrying trend for Real Madrid, with a host of their unwanted star eager to see out their contracts rather than leave the club. One would expect the board to do some retrospection in regard to the contracts the club offers to its players.

Nevertheless, in the case of Vallejo, the defender is currently 26 and should be at the peak of his powers. But instead of moving elsewhere in order to gain regular minutes, the former SGE starlet is willing to sit out on the Real Madrid benches.

Real Madrid will hope the situation will change in the coming summer, once the club start to receive offers from other European clubs, for the services of Vallejo.

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.
