The generational replacement of the central midfield of Real Madrid is supposedly blooming at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with Mundo Deportivo claiming that the team from the capital city has set its sights on the likes of Jamal Musiala and Jude Bellingham.

The Bundesliga duo have been the standout performers for their respective nations at the ongoing world event and seeing their performance, the two have gained immense importance among the Real Madrid management.

As it turns out, the England midfielder was Madrid’s priority mostly because of the position he plays in and the fact that he could be easier to acquire.

Although his current deal with Borussia Dortmund runs until 2025, he is likely to be headed for an exit at the end of the season, with the Bundesliga club already said to be preparing for his departure.

Musiala’s case, on the other hand, is relatively trickier. He is playing at an elite club like Bayern Munich and has a contract with them that runs until 2026. Furthermore, it is Bayern Munich themselves who will pose a problem with any kind of approach Madrid will make.

Add to it the fee they will demand if they somehow agree to part ways with Musiala and the team will supposedly have to break the bank.

Mundo Deportivo also says that Madrid’s idea is to bring in one player between Bellingham and Musiala.

The team wants to find an answer between the two as they expect the likes of Eduardo Camavinga, Federico Valverde and Aurelien Tchouameni to occupy the other midfield positions.

Real Madrid bid Toni Kroos an emotional farewell toward the end of last season, as the German midfielder opted not to pursue continuity in the Spanish capital and instead ride off into the sunset.

However, as the summer transfer window looms large, it appears the German maestro will not be the only veteran hitting the exit door for Los Blancos.

Indeed, Nacho Fernandez’s future continues to be up in the air, as his Real Madrid contract is set to expire in a few days.

Why Nacho is mulling over a departure

The Real Madrid centre-back has been reported to have received a lucrative two-year offer from Al Ittihad, who would nearly quadruple his current salary.

Aside from the appealing financial package from Saudi Arabia, according to AS, Nacho is inclined to leave for other reasons.

For one, the Spanish defender believes that under Ancelotti, his position on the team has not evolved.

Even though he had an impressive season, missing important games like the league Clasico at Santiago Bernabeu and the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals against Manchester City has caused him to reevaluate his future.

This season, he has participated in 45 of the 55 games, missing just three because of suspensions.

Yet, his future at the club appears doubtful owing to the return of Rafa Marin from loan, the presence of Antonio Rudiger, and the return of Eder Militao and David Alaba from injury.

Moreover, Nacho’s thoughts have also been impacted by the persistent speculations that Real Madrid is interested in signing Leny Yoro. In the event that Nacho departs, Yoro might join either this summer.

As such, given the competition in defence next season and the reported wage hike at Al Ittihad, it is likely that Nacho will end up departing the Merengues.
