Due to the influx of arrivals anticipated in Real Madrid’s attack next summer, speculation has been rampant about current players potentially heading for the exit door.

Among those names is Rodrygo, who especially brought some attention with his most recent words.

“Yes, well, you never know, I have a contract, but the years I have been here have been a pleasure for me. I always want to stay, but we’ll see,” he cryptically claimed.

Clearing the air

Now, the Brazilian has attempted to downplay some of the rumors by reposting a tweet by SrNaninho that goes as follows:

Rodrygo’s entourage denies that the player is thinking about leaving Real Madrid. He hopes to make history in Madrid and does not consider any other option. Rodrygo got the verb tense wrong and DAZN posted a bait clip.”

As such, it can be interpreted that Rodrygo has no intention of parting ways for the time being and continues to be committed to the Real Madrid project.

After all, it was only in November last year that Rodrygo signed a contract extension until 2028 with a €1 billion release clause.

Competition not a deterrent for Rodrygo

Although Kylian Mbappe and Endrick’s arrivals will create an excess of options for Real Madrid, Real Madrid continue to place faith in Rodrygo.

Teams from the Premier League had also inquired about Rodrygo’s situation a few months ago, but Real Madrid have attached a hefty price tag on the youngster and intend to retain him.

As such, a departure this summer appears improbable unless significant developments take place and a team is willing to break the bank on Los Blancos‘ €100 million-rated forward.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
