A recent report from MARCA has offered an update on Real Madrid’s transfer policy, especially after Paris Saint-Germain’s elimination from the UEFA Champions League.

The defeat to Bayern Munich has indeed led to question marks over the future of Kylian Mbappe, with the club handing the player an ultimatum to make a definitive decision on his future.

As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they are closely observing the market. But a bigger challenge for the club will be resolving the future of their existing stars.

As per the report, Real Madrid appears to have reached a conclusion when it comes to the future of Mariano Diaz. It seems the former Lyon forward’s departure from Santiago Bernabeu has been confirmed, as he will not be prolonging his stay at the club.

Diaz’s exit from the Bernabeu will be hardly surprising as the forward has not made any impact over the past few seasons. He has featured in just over 50 minutes of action this season, falling behind the likes of Karim Benzema, Rodrygo and even the young Alvaro Rodriguez in the pecking order.

With his current contract expiring at the end of the season, Diaz is set to leave the club as a free agent. His exit will allow the club to make some valuable space in the attacking unit, potentially paving the way for them to attract new players.

While Diaz’s contract is over in the summer, Real Madrid, though, are facing a precarious situation as far as the Eden Hazard situation is concerned.

Just like Diaz, the Belgian international, who has been a major flop since his arrival from Chelsea, has no desire to leave the club and wants see out his contract that runs until 2024. The onus, therefore, will be on Real Madrid to get rid of not only Diaz but also Hazard in the coming summer.

Real Madrid are set to play hosts to Sevilla this evening, in what could prove to be a critical match in the context of the title race.

Although Los Blancos hold a formidable lead at the top of the table, the club are coming on the back of a disappointing result against Rayo Vallecano.

Dropping more points against Sevilla tonight could prove to be costly, especially with Barcelona and Girona breathing down their necks.

Potential Real Madrid lineup vs Sevilla

As Real Madrid approach this crucial game, coach Carlo Ancelotti has to make several arrangements, especially with so many players ruled out either due to injury or suspension.

Defence

Starting from the goalkeeper position, Thibaut Courtois remains out, which means Andriy Lunin should continue in between the sticks, ahead of the unhappy Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In the right-back position, Ancelotti is likely to opt for Lucas Vazquez, as Dani Carvajal is suspended after picking up two yellow cards in the last game.

On a bright note, though, Antonio Rudiger is back and should return to central defence. He will be accompanied by Nacho Fernandez at the heart of Real Madrid’s four-man backline.

Elsewhere in defence, Ferland Mendy should continue to start ahead of Fran Garcia in the left-back position.

Midfield

Moving into midfield, Eduardo Camavinga has been ruled out due to suspension. However, Ancelotti does have a myriad of options in the middle of the park.

Aurelien Tchouameni should continue to operate in the number six position, just behind the two interior midfielders Toni Kroos and Federico Valverde.

Luka Modric is an option on the bench, should Ancelotti require more experience in the middle.

Attack

As for the attack, the Real Madrid frontline should be led by Brahim Diaz once again, even though he faces fierce competition from Joselu.

Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, on the other hand, are guaranteed choices in the wide attacking spaces, though Ancelotti does have Arda Guler and Alvaro Rodriguez as potential alternatives.
