Real Madrid’s forward line will have a new look next season with Kylian Mbappe and Endrick joining the team’s dynamics. With three players already fighting for just two places, the competition will only grow in amplitude in 2024-25.

Vinicius Jr. already commands a regular starting place in the manager’s lineup, and with Mbappe set to join him as a starter, Rodrygo appears to be the one who will face the brunt next season.

The uncertainty around the youngster’s situation has paved the way for talks on a potential departure in June, although the player remains clear that it is a problem for the coach to solve.

The current situation

The Athletic FC provides an update on Rodrygo’s situation, stating that the young phenom has no doubts that he wishes to stay at and succeed, at Real Madrid.

If he loses his prominence in the manager’s plans and his starting status next season, however, he would consider other options as any player in his situation would.

It is currently too early to discuss a transfer as furthered by the English outlet, however, there are several Premier League clubs interested in his signing. Rodrygo’s future, in the coming months, could thus hold something unexpected.

Real Madrid’s manoeuvre

As Carlo Ancelotti sees it, the only way to provide Rodrygo with a starting place in the team next season is to play him in place of Jude Bellingham at the apex of the midfield.

That, however, is directly impossible given the English phenom’s form this season and its importance in the team’s dynamics.

As revealed earlier today, Los Blancos have thus come up with a plan, albeit contentious, to address the issue.

The men in white see Eder Militao’s sale to be the first in a long chain of dominoes to solve Rodrygo’s problem.

The defender’s exit will shift Aurelien Tchouameni from midfield to the role of a defensive cover, clearing up a place in the middle of the park for Bellingham to shift into.

If indeed the Golden Boy can find a place in the deeper midfield, Rodrygo can have his starting spot alongside Mbappe and Vinicius Jr for Real Madrid.

Real Madrid interested in €60 million-rated Tottenham defender

Real Madrid are looking for defensive reinforcements in the summer amid question marks over the continuity of captain Nacho Fernandez.

Leny Yoro of Lille has been the top target, with the teenager’s contract with the French club expiring in a year.

However, Lille’s transfer demands are making the possibility of a transfer difficult, which has seemingly prompted Los Blancos to look for alternatives.

Cristian Romero on the radars

Now, ESPN Argentina reports that Real Madrid are interested in Tottenham Hotspur defender and vice-captain Cristian Romero heading into the summer.

In fact, it is even claimed that the reigning champions of Spain and Europe have already asked about the 25-year-old World Cup winner.

Romero has been with Tottenham since 2021, having initially arrived on loan from Atalanta before the move was made permanent a year later.

The 25-year-old has been a regular fixture in the lineup for the Lilywhites and was even made vice-captain last season by manager Ange Postecoglou.

The centre-half was also a part of the Argentina squad that won the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

Romero’s contract with Tottenham runs until the summer of 2027. Considering how important he is to the team and the duration of his contract, Spurs will demand a hefty sum for him if Real Madrid do make an approach.

Given the Merengues’ reluctance to splash big bucks especially with funds being set aside for Alphonso Davies as well, any move for Romero this summer appears extremely unlikely.
