When Real Madrid knocks, it’s a different knock. Reputed for harboring the best players and the brightest young talents, the Merengues are constantly scouring the transfer market.

And now according to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have been interfering in the renewal of the promising striker from Real Betis’ youth ranks, Yanis Senhadji.

Real Madrid’s interest complicating a renewal

The 18-year-old Yanis Senhadji has emerged as an immensely talented player, having already made his debut with the Spanish U-19 national team.

At the club level, he ends his contract with Real Betis next year in June, but Los Verdiblancos have been negotiating to extend the centre-forward’s contract for some time now, with his performances exhibiting a great deal of potential.

With the Division of Honor youth team, Yanis has scored ten goals so far this season. He has also played eight games with the reserve team and the Spanish U-19 team, which he recently joined after leaving Algeria.

While Yanis intends to continue his relationship with Real Betis, there are economic differences present, which complicate a renewal and thus the agreement is not yet finalized.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid retain a significant interest in the player, with their involvement stalling the 18-year-old’s continuation with Betis.

Premier League side Wolverhampton also maintains an interest in the player, which is compelling Senhadji to keep his options open and not yet commit to a future with Betis.

Shocking Modric, Vinicius, Cristiano fact makes Real Madrid fans ‘feel old’

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
