On Sunday, we shared news of Real Madrid defender Ferland Mendy’s remarkable turnaround, which has been so impressive that the club is now considering extending his contract

Mendy’s current contract with Real Madrid is valid until 2025, giving him at least another year with the club under his current terms. 

Now, Bernabeu Digital reports that while reaching a renewal agreement with Mendy will be pretty much straightforward, there is still uncertainty about the length of his new contract. But early indications are that he could be renewed until 2027.

The French full-back’s recent performances have caught the eye of Real Madrid’s management, prompting them to consider offering him an extension. 

Mendy’s improved form and contributions to the team’s success, especially in the last few games have likely played a significant role in the club’s decision to renew his contract.

Carlo Ancelotti played a big role

Mendy’s time with the club has been marked by more time away from the team than with them. His ongoing muscle issues have kept him off the field and frustrated the club’s board, as they find his lack of availability problematic for the coach’s plans.

Despite these challenges, Carlo Ancelotti has consistently shown trust in him. He has stood by the player even during his difficult moments caused by injuries. This consistent belief has left Mendy feeling a sense of gratitude and loyalty toward him. 

The Real Madrid board appears to have moved past Mendy’s earlier struggles and is now considering extending his contract.

Interestingly enough, both club president Florentino Perez and general director Jose Angel Sanchez recognize Mendy’s importance to Ancelotti’s plans, which explains their decision to pursue the extension.

Mendy will not leave Real Madrid

While there shouldn’t be any significant obstacles in reaching an agreement with Mendy, a discussion with his agent is still necessary to finalize the terms. 

The length of the contract will play a pivotal role in the negotiations, with indications suggesting that his contract will likely be extended through 2027.

By securing Mendy’s continued presence, the club supports Ancelotti’s strategy, retains a strong defender, and keeps the possibility of a future transfer open should another player, like Alphonso Davies, join the squad in 2024 or 2025.

Speaking in an interview with Sport BILD (h/t AS), Germany legend Michael Ballack has claimed that Bayer Leverkusen sensation Florian Wirtz is ready to play for Real Madrid.

Wirtz is a player that Real Madrid have been closely monitoring for a while now, with the German sensation being seen as a long-term replacement for Toni Kroos, who announced his retirement yesterday.

A move for Wirtz is being planned for the summer of 2025 and Ballack believes that the Bundesliga title winner with Leverkusen is ready for the big move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

“Wirtz is ready for Real Madrid,” said Ballack.

“In terms of football, Wirtz can definitely play for Real Madrid. You can also see it in Jude Bellingham after his move from BVB: when you play with even better players, you become even better,” he added.

Wirtz has a contract with Bayer Leverkusen that runs until the summer of 2027. As things stand, the new German champions have no intentions of selling their prized asset this year.

However, there appears to be an acceptance that the German international will be on the move in 2025.

Other top clubs like Manchester City and Bayern Munich are also understood to be interested, but Real Madrid are likely to beat them in the race should it come down to that next year.

A move for Wirtz, though, could cost in excess of €100 million for Real Madrid should they do indeed decide to proceed with his signing next year.
