With the January transfer window looming, it is time for Real Madrid to analyse everything and see how the squad might look from the next season.

While there are some certainties, the team from the Spanish capital is still exploring the futures of certain individuals including on-loan forward Joselu and goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

According to Jose Felix Diaz of MARCA, the record European champions have not made any decision regarding the continuity of Kepa and Joselu as the club wants to wait and see how they perform during the rest of the season.

Arrizabalaga is preferred by Ancelotti

While it is certain that Arrizabalaga will lose his place once Thibaut Courtois returns, it is no secret that the Chelsea loanee is loved by Carlo Ancelotti so much so that the Italian is ready to sacrifice a certain Andriy Lunin.

Furthermore, as reported before, Real Madrid are actually contemplating the idea of signing Arrizabalaga permanently, although no official negotiations have taken place between Madrid and Chelsea yet.

Once Courtois returns, Real Madrid will have three goalkeepers in the roster and one among them will be sacrificed and everything indicates that Lunin will be the one departing despite having a contract until 2025.

What about Joselu?

Joselu’s future at the club is extremely dicey. The 33-year-old is currently on loan and he is very much satisfied with his game time and even the club appreciates his continued efforts.

The Espanyol loanee has performed diligently whenever called upon and the fact that he has netted six goals and two assists explains how dedicated he is towards the team.

So far, Real Madrid plan to bring Kylian Mbappe in the summer, and if that transfer pans out, Joselu will be pushed further down the card, which is why the team wants to wait until the end of the season to make a decision.

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.
