There are quite a few players at Real Madrid whose contracts expire at the end of the ongoing season, one of whom happens to be veteran full-back Lucas Vazquez.

A product of the club’s youth academy, Vazquez broke into the first-team setup under Rafael Benitez in 2015 and has since been a very handful utility player for the Merengues.

Having started out as a winger, Vazquez has morphed himself into a reliable right-back in recent seasons, operating as the understudy to first-choice star Dani Carvajal.

The 32-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Real Madrid, though, and there is some uncertainty over his continuity, with Juventus said to be interested.

Lucas Vazquez likely to continue for another year

However, as per Jose Felix Diaz of MARCA, Lucas Vazquez is likely to remain at Real Madrid for another season, with a one-year contract extension seeming a real possibility.

With Dani Carvajal in top form, Vazquez had not been playing much in the early parts of the current season. However, an injury to his compatriot in late 2023 opened the doors for the winger-turned-defender and he made the most of it.

In all, Vazquez has made 20 appearances across all competitions for Real Madrid this season, scoring one goal and registering three assists.

And his performances appear to have convinced Real Madrid to prolong his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu for another year.

The 32-year-old suffered an injury earlier this month leading to him missing the last four matches. However, he is back fit now and is on the bench for the clash against UD Almeria today.

While Vazquez might be handed a new deal, Real Madrid are also preparing for the future and have identified Manchester City loanee Yan Couto as a possible long-term heir to Carvajal in the right-back position.

According to a recent report from Defensa Central, Manchester United have set their sights on Real Madrid forward Joselu and for that, they are prepared to make a generous offer to lure him, proposing a two-year contract with an impressive salary of €5 million net per year.

Manchester United’s interest in signing Joselu has grown in recent months. His reputation has been on the rise, and United are willing to go all out to secure his signature. 

At Real Madrid, the forward’s exceptional performance, particularly his two crucial goals in the European Cup semi-final against Bayern Munich, has made a significant impression. 

It is said that this performance highlighted the importance of keeping a strong squad, and Joselu’s contributions have not gone unnoticed.

Real Madrid can sign him

While Joselu is currently committed to Espanyol until June 2024, Real Madrid hold a potential purchase option for him

The cost of this option is relatively low, but it is important to note that Real Madrid’s roster is quite full, with limited space for new players. 

Despite this, Joselu’s previous stint in the Premier League has not been forgotten, and Manchester United remains keenly interested in bringing him back to England.

Joselu is an old-school forward who knows what it means to face some of the toughest defences in the world. He understands the challenges and the battles that come with playing at the highest level. 

United love Joselu

Even if he is not guaranteed a starting position, his experience and knack for scoring goals make him a valuable addition to any team. 

Manchester United see these qualities in Joselu and believes he could be a significant asset to their squad.

In England, there is talk of a lucrative two-year contract on the table for the Galician footballer. This deal would significantly boost Joselu’s salary, offering him €5 million net per year. 

This substantial increase in his earnings is a key part of United’s strategy to tempt him away from Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training complex.

Carlo Ancelotti and his staff are very pleased with Joselu’s performance as he has proven to be more than just a team player, but there is a chance that they might still lose him this summer.
