Real Madrid have already bid goodbye to several players this summer but with less than two weeks left for the transfer window to close, there could be a few more exits on the cards.

Indeed, according to journalist Rodra, Los Blancos are expecting offers to come in for out-of-favour duo Alvaro Odriozola and Reinier Jesus in the final week of the summer window.

The attacking midfielder and right-back do not have any offers at this point, but Real Madrid are expecting proposals to arrive in the next few days.

Reinier, Odriozola not in Ancelotti’s plans

Reinier returned to Real Madrid in the summer after a season on loan at Girona, where he failed to make much of an impression.

While he was training with the first-team under Carlo Ancelotti early on, soon he was told that he was not part of the manager’s plans.

After being left out of the squad for the US tour was sent off to train by himself with Castilla youngsters who are also on their way out.

A move back to Girona on loan was suggested, but it ended up collapsing, and the Brazilian attacking midfielder is waiting for an offer to come forth.

As for Odriozola, he continues to train under Ancelotti and remains in the first-team dynamics, but has no role in the Italian tactician’s plans.

As such, an exit has been mooted for him all summer long, but recent reports are suggesting that the right-back might prefer to stay at the club and see out his contract which expires at the end of the season.

This is despite him having very little chance of getting any minutes under Ancelotti.

It will be interesting to see if any offers do arrive for either Reinier or Odriozola in the remaining days of the window.

Ferland Mendy finds himself in a difficult situation at Real Madrid. The Frenchman has struggled with injury and fitness woes for a large part of the past year, leading to doubts over his future at the club.

In fact, it had been reported that Los Blancos were considering selling Mendy during the summer transfer window earlier this year itself.

But, such a move did not materialise and the 28-year-old has stayed put at the Santiago Bernabeu although reports suggest that he is likely to be on the move next year.

Mendy would retire at Real Madrid if he could

Despite there having been numerous reports about his future in the summer, The Athletic reports that Mendy did not consider the possibility of an exit at any point.

In fact, the report adds that if given a chance, the 28-year-old defender would retire at Real Madrid.

Mendy’s contract with Los Merengues expires in 2025 and he is understood to be seeking a renewal for a while now, but there has been no move made by the club.

The injuries that the 28-year-old has picked up are understood to be a major deterrent for Real Madrid, which is why they are already looking to reinforce the left-back position with Alphonso Davies next year.

Despite the non-stop speculations surrounding him, Mendy continues to enjoy the full trust of manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Indeed, as per the report, the Italian tactician has informed the Frenchman that he is the left-back that best fits the defensive requirements needed in the team.

Ancelotti’s decision to bench Fran Garcia in the UEFA Champions League game even though Mendy was unavailable and start David Alaba at left-back was taken as an indicator within the dressing room that the Frenchman remains the first-choice in the position.

So, it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds over the coming months, especially with Ancelotti’s future also uncertain as his contract expires in 2024.
