The arrival of Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid has cast a shadow over the future of young Brazilian forward Rodrygo Goes.

Rodrygo’s recent comments hinting at a potential exit, coupled with reported interest from Premier League clubs, have fueled speculation about his departure from the Bernabeu.

Subsequently, Liverpool emerged as a serious contender for Rodrygo’s signature, with reports suggesting they tabled a hefty €120 million offer.

Real Madrid reject Liverpool advances for Rodrygo

However, according to Diario SPORT, Real Madrid have rejected Liverpool’s bumper offer for Rodrygo. This doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the transfer saga, however.

Rodrygo’s hints to the public over a potential departure from Real Madrid have not been received well at the club.

With Mbappe’s arrival seemingly taking his place in the pecking order, and the impending arrival of wonderkid Endrick further increasing competition for attacking spots, Real Madrid may still have enough leverage to offload the Brazilian in the coming summer.

Despite public pronouncements from Rodrygo and his representatives claiming a desire to stay at Real Madrid, the situation remains fluid.

Reports across the Spanish media suggest that while Rodrygo doesn’t actively seek a transfer, a reduction in playing time could prompt him to reconsider his future. The Premier League, an attraction he’s openly confessed to, could be a potential landing spot.

Real Madrid’s price tag for Rodrygo

Spanish media claims Liverpool’s €120 million offer wasn’t the only one Real Madrid received. Other sources hint at a €150 million threshold that could tempt the club to part ways with the Brazilian.

Manchester City, long-time admirers of Rodrygo, could also return to the fray with an improved offer this summer.

It must be noted that the potential transfer of Rodrygo would free up funds and create a vacancy in the attacking line-up. This could pave the way for another long-term target: Erling Haaland.

That is perhaps why Real Madrid are ready to play the long game and are in no rush to secure the exit of Rodrygo.

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.
