In recent days, the name Rodrygo has been buzzing around Real Madrid, but not for the reasons he might prefer. 

Despite his impressive performance, including two fantastic goals against Athletic Club last weekend, the Brazilian finds himself in the spotlight for uncertain reasons regarding his future. 

This uncertainty stems from the imminent arrival of Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid, which has dominated headlines.

Nevertheless, according to a report from El Larguero, Rodrygo has firmly expressed his commitment to staying with Real Madrid this summer, even in the face of Mbappe’s arrival as he sees Real Madrid’s project as the most promising in football.

Despite interest from clubs like Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, Manchester City, and Manchester United, Rodrygo has made it clear that he will not entertain offers from any of them.

Real Madrid have already rejected one offer

Specifically, Liverpool recently expressed interest in acquiring the Brazilian, viewing him as a suitable replacement for Mohamed Salah, who could potentially leave at the end of the season, along with manager Jurgen Klopp.

Over the past few days, Liverpool have made offers for Rodrygo, with their highest bid reaching €80 million. However, Real Madrid promptly rejected this offer.

Will Real Madrid sell Rodrygo?

Although it might not sound ideal, Real Madrid could consider selling Rodrygo if the offer meets their valuation. While they turned down one bid already, they might reconsider if offers fall within the €100 to €120 million range.

Meanwhile, Rodrygo appears positive about the situation, suggesting that even if Mbappe joins, he will view it as healthy competition. 

“If Mbappe comes, I will be benched? It will be a happy problem for the manager,” he said.

As of today, Carlo Ancelotti and his coaching staff are more than happy with Rodrygo’s output and unless there is not an extravagant offer on the table, they would not entertain any bid.

Of all players people would have expected to turn up for El Clasico today from Real Madrid, it was the backup right-back Lucaz Vazquez who delivered an absolute masterclass of a performance in their 3-2 win.

The Spaniard played Barcelona out of the park starting as the right-back, and ran circles around Joao Cancelo.

He won the penalty for the first goal, scored the equaliser in the 73rd minute, and then assisted Jude Bellingham’s winner in the 91st minute.

“Great night, like many others at the Santiago Bernabeu. We are very grateful to the fans, they created a spectacular atmosphere. We are where want to be, six points away from winning the league,” Vazquez said, as quoted by MARCA.

Coming off an exhausting 120 minutes vs Manchester City in the Champions League, not many would have expected the shift Madrid put in tonight, especially after trailing on two occasions.

“The team, despite the great effort in Manchester, showed their face again. We once again played a great game, and we did everything in our power to achieve this win that gives us the advantage in the league,” Vazquez commented on it.

Now 11 points clear off Barcelona, Madrid can almost sniff La Liga out, and according to Vazquez, it reflects their work well.

“I think this difference speaks well about our work. We had a very good season in La Liga, and we are on the right track.”

As for his own performance, the Spaniard was modest, and said, “I am very happy to be able to help the team. A lot of things went well today, and that is important for everyone”

He was asked two very important things, as well, including his possible inclusion in the 2024 European Championship, to which he replied, “I would love for Luis de la Fuente to call me up for the Euros.”

And more importantly, he also spoke about the controversial penalty incident, but claimed that it was 100% a penalty. “I cut back and his leg caught me. It was a penalty.”

Real Madrid have five days off now before they travel to the Basque county to take on Real Sociedad in the league before travelling to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
