If one were to point one a weak link in Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid team this season, Rodrygo Goes would come across as a tempting option.

Indeed, the player has not done much wrong this season but his poor output in the final third is one black spot in Los Blancos’ otherwise spotless season.

In 28 league appearances so far, the Brazilian has scored eight goals and provided five assists for the men in white. He has missed nine big chances and is underperforming his xG considerably.

Focused on Real Madrid

Come next summer, Rodrygo is aware that his place in the starting XI is under massive threat. Kylian Mbappe’s arrival for starters, will push the youngster to the bench in all probability as the Frenchman is well-placed to join Vinicius Jr in the final third of Ancelotti’s 4-4-2 setup.

The arrival of Endrick only adds more competition. With his young compatriot also staking claim for a similar position on the field, his future in the team is under threat.

As revealed by SPORT, Rodrygo’s situation has understandably sparked rumours of a possible departure in June.

The Brazilian, however, is determined to fight it out for a place next season as he only considers succeeding in the Spanish capital.

Real Madrid will have a star-studded team next season after Mbappe’s arrival and will be favourites across all competitions they participate in.

Rodrygo is excited for the project that lies ahead, even if it comes at the cost of his current position in the starting lineup.

Ancelotti has always been a vocal admirer of the 23-year-old and has backed him several times this season during his press conferences.

Needless to say, he will have a role next season despite his poor run of form.

A Madridsta through and through, the Brazilian will fight till the very end until he succeeds in white. A departure, as it stands, is not even a remote possibility.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
