Real Madrid have not made the best of starts after the resumption of club football following the World Cup break.

The Merengues were pushed to the brink by Real Valladolid in La Liga and then barely managed to against lower league side Cacereno in Copa del Rey before eating a loss against Villarreal in the league.

Then, Carlo Ancelotti’s men went through a difficult time to get past Valencia in the Spanish Super Cup semi-finals and had to rely on penalties to make it through to the next phase.

The decline in performance levels in recent matches has created some skepticism surrounding the current champions of Spain and Europe.

However, according to MARCA, the Real Madrid locker room is not worried about the recent run of results and believe it is just a ‘bad moment’ that will pass.

Up next for Los Blancos is the Spanish Super Cup final where they will face arch-rivals Barcelona in an El Clasico.

While the locker room and coaches are not overly concerned about the current situation, Ancelotti has reportedly asked for his team to show greater intensity and focus during matches, the lack of which has cost them during the games against Villarreal and Valencia.

On top of that injuries to several players is another issue that the Merengues are having to deal with. But they understand that it is a part and parcel of the game and are preparing for the final on Sunday according to plans.

While there may be some alarm bells going off, the locker room, as such, is confident that the situation can be turned around with one important victory.

There has been a lot of speculation about Lunin’s future at Real Madrid and recent reports have suggested that the keeper was disappointed when the team’s coach, Carlo Ancelotti, chose not to play him in the Champions League final, even though Lunin had anticipated this decision. 

With the return of Thibaut Courtois, Lunin’s chances of being the main goalkeeper have significantly decreased. 

This situation has led him to consider a possible move this summer, with interest from several big clubs like Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Arsenal, and Juventus.

It is said that despite the uncertainty, the final decision rests with Lunin. Real Madrid have expressed their desire to keep him and have offered him a contract extension until 2029

Although Lunin seemed ready to sign the new contract, the events surrounding the Champions League final have caused him to reconsider his options. The choice of Courtois over him has planted seeds of doubt about his future with the club.
