Real Madrid have drawn a clear line in the sand regarding the potential sale of their dynamic forward, Rodrygo. 

According to a recent report from Fichajes, the Spanish giants are willing to entertain offers only within the range of €100 to €120 million for the Brazilian talent. 

This stance from the team comes amidst swirling rumours linking Liverpool to Rodrygo, with the Reds eyeing him as a possible successor to Mohamed Salah.

As reported before, Liverpool have already approached Real Madrid for Rodrygo, tabling an €80 million. However, Real Madrid currently have no interest in parting ways with the player and even if they do, they will not bargain over their demand.

Rodrygo facing an uncertain future

Despite his allegiance to Real Madrid, Rodrygo could face a dilemma regarding his playing time in the upcoming season, particularly if Kylian Mbappe makes the move from PSG to join the ranks.

The potential addition of the French sensation would heighten competition for spots in the starting lineup, limiting Rodrygo’s minutes on the pitch. Speaking about the same, though, the player is not worried.

“If Mbappe comes, I will be benched? It will be a happy problem for the manager,” he said after Real Madrid’s 2-0 win over Athletic Club where he scored a brace.

Liverpool interest getting solid

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s interest in Rodrygo has grown more intense amidst uncertainties surrounding Salah’s future with the club. 

With Salah’s contract set to expire in 2025 and whispers of interest from clubs from Saudi Arabia, Liverpool might soon bid farewell to their Egyptian maestro. 

In light of this situation, Rodrygo emerges as an appealing prospect for the Reds, offering a blend of quality on the wings and an extra dimension in attack.

Despite Liverpool tabling an improved offer of around €80 million for Rodrygo, Real Madrid remain firm in their financial demands. They are holding out for a transfer fee between €100 and €120 million, hoping to secure a deal that meets their valuation for the Brazilian international.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
