Real Madrid have already started their summer business even though the transfer window is yet to open. They have already dealt with four expiring contracts, announcing Bosman departures for Karim Benzema, Mariano Diaz, and Marco Asensio, while Nacho decided to renew.

With this out of the way, Madrid will turn their attention towards the other members of the squad who could potentially become free agents soon.

Luka Modric, for example, is reportedly between an extension and a massive offer from Saudi Arabia. Toni Kroos’ renewal is tied up, but yet to be announced. However, there is little to no news about Dani Ceballos.

The Spaniard is yet to make a decision about the contract renewal handed to him by Real Madrid, as per a report by AS. There are only 15 days remaining before his current contract expires.

Madrid’s midfield is quite congested already. Toni Kroos and Luka Modric commanded starting spots through last season, with Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga shuffling between the last position.

Kroos, too, was used as a defensive midfielder, at times, with Federico Valverde dropping as the third midfielder. Ceballos acted as the last option in midfield for Carlo Ancelotti, but did well whenever called upon.

Now, though, the situation has become even more complicated, with Jude Bellingham completing his €100 million move from Borussia Dortmund.

Maybe not immediately, but the Englishman is almost definitely expected to have one spot in the trident reserved for him as the season goes on, with the intention to phase out one or both of Modric and Kroos.

Ceballos understands that should he renew his contract, he will be behind Bellingham, Modric, Kroos, Valverde, and sometimes even Camavinga in the central midfield pecking order.

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
