Real Madrid’s focus will be firmly fixed on the forthcoming UEFA Champions League encounter with Borussia Dortmund, but preparations regarding the squad planning never stops in the Madrid headquarters.

Several veteran players of the club face an uncertain future with contract expirations looming large.

However, recent developments have indicated that the midfield maestros Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are closer to staying now than leaving.

And Lucas Vazquez, another one of the trusted members of the squad whose contract expires this summer, is also anticipated to continue plying his trade in the Spanish Capital.

Lucas Vazquez’s renewal is imminent

Indeed, according to Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra) Lucas Vazquez’s new deal is getting closer and appears almost imminent.

The defender is seen as a good option to rotate with Dani Carvajal in the right-back position, especially considering his solid form this year.

In fact, the 32-year-old most recently notched two assists and scored a goal in Real Madrid’s 4-4 draw against Villarreal.

Vazquez has constantly iterated his desire to stay put and it appears the Merengues are on the same page, as both parties are near a contract renewal. He has the faith of the coaching staff as well as the board.

While the length of the contract extension remains to be seen, all signs point toward a one-year renewal running until 2025.

Lucas Vazquez is not entertaining foreign offers

The Spaniard’s desire to continue donning the royal white jersey is seen in his approach toward offers from abroad.

Given he would become a free agent this summer, interest in him was hardly a surprise. However, Vazquez reportedly rejected Juventus with no intention of hitting the exit door.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
