It is no secret that Dani Carvajal is an important member of Carlo Ancelotti’s XI at Real Madrid and since his contract is expiring in 2025, journalist Jose Felix Diaz has affirmed via MARCA that the team from the Spanish capital is willing to reward him with a one-year extension.

Despite being 32 years of age, Carvajal has been Ancelotti’s first-choice right-back. Not only that, but the Spaniard is one of the first players in the manager’s starting XI and this is made evident by the fact that despite being injured, he has played 16 matches in La Liga, clocking more than 1300 minutes.

Carvajal is valued at Real Madrid

Carvajal’s contract will end in 2025 and it is to be noted that he has spent almost his entire career with Real Madrid, except for one season at Bayer Leverkusen. 

Even though he’ll be 34 years old in 2026, Real Madrid has already decided to offer him a new contract before his current one ends as the team has complete trust in his skills and contributions.

Everyone in the team is sure about Carvajal’s importance. The entire coaching staff believes he has become a crucial player for the team, often seen as the heart of Ancelotti’s starting lineup.

In the upcoming weeks, Real Madrid’s leaders will discuss extending Carvajal’s contract as they are thinking of offering him one more season initially, with the possibility of more if he continues to perform well.

This is a customary practice for experienced players at Real Madrid, as the team’s recent history has shown.

Real Madrid are confident in Carvajal, but that doesn’t mean they’re just sitting around. They’re thinking about what to do with Lucas Vazquez, whose contract ends in June. 

Before deciding, the team is carefully looking at the market and assessing their players. They might need to strengthen both sides in the future and consider signing a top player. It depends on the emergencies and the current situation of the team and players.

Real Madrid are confident that Kylian Mbappe will not participate in the Paris Olympic Games, and as a result, they expect him to join their preseason squad in August, according to a striking report from SPORT.

The club has made it clear that they will not make any exceptions for Mbappe, nor will they treat him as a “special case” who can participate in both the Euro Cup and the Olympic Games, which are generally meant for younger athletes.

It is important to highlight that Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, is currently in Paris for a FIFA event. This event will give him the opportunity to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron and discuss the potential transfer of Mbappe.

One of Perez’s main interests is to bring the French star to Real Madrid as soon as possible. Ideally, this would be after the European Championship in Germany, which runs from June 14 to July 14, followed by a short vacation.

This is why Mbappe would be expected to join the team only in August.

No Mbappe is Paris Olympics

Interestingly, this plan would be disrupted if Mbappe were to compete in the Paris Olympic Games. 

While participating in the Olympics would be highly appealing to the French capital and could even boost Mbappe’s popularity among his fellow countrymen, Real Madrid sources believe that he will skip the Olympics.

For now, Real Madrid’s confidence that Mbappe will not participate in the Olympics means they are planning for him to join the team for the preseason in August.

Meanwhile, as the situation is still developing, Perez’s trip to Paris for FIFA’s 120th Anniversary appears to be yielding results, paving the way for Mbappe’s anticipated move to Real Madrid.

While everything related to the transfer is on track, the official announcement is pending followed by the presentation.
