Real Madrid will be dealing with a fair few expiring contracts in the summer as Luka Modric, Lucas Vazquez, Nacho, and Toni Kroos all reach the end of their terms at the club.

It is clear that Madrid want to retain Kroos’ services for another season, and have offered him an extension. He has already announced his return to the German National Team for the 2024 Euros, and could be pursuaded to continue in the Spanish capital for another season.

Vazquez and Nacho, meanwhile, could be renewed, depending on their wishes, as Madrid and the coaching staff seem happy with both players’ contribution, especially with the multitude of injuries in defence this season.

However, Modric’s situation is the most volatile right now. The Croatian is not happy with his playing time this season, but does not want to leave the club this summer, as he believes he can continue playing for another season.

That said, according to a report from MARCA, Modric has confessed to Carlo Ancelotti that he wants to become a coach after his retirement, and is looking to get his coaching license from Croatia.

It was reported earlier that Ancelotti had offered a spot on his coaching staff to Modric, but he refused the offer, believing that he still has time left on the top level.

Offers in abundance

Modric had received offers from Saudi Arabia and the MLS in the summer, but turned them down as he thought he was still an integral part of the Real Madrid team and will continue to be a starter this season.

However, Ancelotti has often relied on Kroos, Federico Valverde, and one of Eduardo Camavinga or Aurelien Tchouameni to run the midfield, which has not bode well for the Croatian.

He now has an offer from his boyhood club Dinamo Zagreb, and is contemplating a return in the summer. Saudi Arabian and MLS clubs are also in the race, but it seems unlikely that Modric will go there.

Real Madrid are just days away from their highly anticipated Champions League final showdown against Borussia Dortmund.

Once the final has been played, planning for the summer transfer window will be in full swing, with the topic of arrivals and departures likely to be discussed.

One of the players facing an uncertain future is Nacho Fernandez. The Real Madrid captain has yet to disclose his future ambitions, despite nearing the end of his contract.

Nacho opens up about future

While he previously claimed that he had already made his decision, a shift in tone can be observed now, with Nacho asserting that he will soon sit with the club and his family to evaluate the best course of action

For now, the 34-year-old remains focused on the Champions League final and does not wish to draw any unnecessary attention.

“Future? The focus is on the final now. After that, I will sit with the club, Ancelotti and my family and I’ll decide what’s the best thing for me,” he told El Chiringuito.

Fernandez acknowledges the fans’ support

Additionally, the veteran centre-back claimed that he does need a grand farewell to know how much the Madrid faithful appreciate him.

“That love the fans have for Toni is the same they have for me. I don’t need a farewell to know the fans love me,” he reflected.

Nacho has devoted his entire career to Real Madrid, rising through the ranks from the youth academy and spending over two decades with the Merengues.

However, he has alluded to the possibility of perhaps donning the colours of a different jersey.

“Sometimes the circumstances are not right to be a ‘one club man’,” he cryptically claimed.
