Real Madrid left-back Ferland Mendy is staring at an uncertain future heading into the summer transfer window.

The 29-year-old left-back’s current contract with Los Blancos expires in 2025 and following a solid season, Carlo Ancelotti & co. are in favour of extending his stay.

However, at the same time, Real Madrid are also strongly interested in signing Alphonso Davies from Bayern Munich and are working on a deal for the Canadian.

What is clear among the officials is that both Davies and Mendy will not be at the club together and as such, the latter could still end up departing despite Ancelotti’s preference to keep him.

Premier League clubs interested

Now, The Athletic has come forward with an update on the situation surrounding Ferland Mendy and his future at Real Madrid.

As per the report, Mendy’s entourage is not ruling out anything at this point and insists that a renewal is a possibility as well as the left-back staying until 2025 before leaving as a free agent.

What the Frenchman’s agents are clear about is that they have not received any renewal proposal from Real Madrid yet.

Given the situation, it is claimed that Mendy has received interest from the Premier League ‘Big Six’ of Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Chelsea.

Whether the interest is concrete enough for the aforementioned clubs to table an offer in the coming months remains to be seen.

Real Madrid’s last offer did not convince Mendy

Meanwhile, MARCA reports that Real Madrid had sent a contract renewal offer to Ferland Mendy quite a while ago, but it was far from satisfactory for the player.

The offer came after studying the operation in detail and listening to Ancelotti’s request to retain Mendy. With the defender on the pitch, the coach feels more confident, but the proposal made was not what Mendy thought.

Either way, the situation remains open and there is still no clarity over Mendy’s next move.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
