Rodrygo’s prospects at Real Madrid are now uncertain, especially with the news of Kylian Mbappe’s impending move to the Spanish capital at the end of the season. 

Despite previous statements emphasizing Rodrygo’s importance to Madrid’s and Carlo Ancelotti’s strategies, doubts linger about whether he will receive sufficient playing time next season.

At the moment, Rodrygo has no intentions of departing from Real Madrid. He’s committed to the club until 2028, however, the situation might change if he starts to feel sidelined and is not getting regular playtime.

As such, we have reported before that as many as four Premier League teams are keeping a tab on his situation and a report from Mundo Deportivo has affirmed that Liverpool happen to be one of them.

It is claimed that Liverpool have even made offers for the Brazilian and their highest bid for Rodrygo stands at €80 million, a figure that Real Madrid have turned down.

Liverpool want him as Salah’s replacement

According to sources in England, Liverpool are reportedly making a strong push to sign Rodrygo as they anticipate Mohamed Salah’s departure from the club this summer.

Salah, who is under contract with Liverpool until 2025, is said to be eyeing an exit and he has already received tempting offers from Saudi Arabia. 

As of today, it is expected that similar offers will come his way again this summer, potentially leading to his departure from the Premier League.

This is why Liverpool have identified Rodrygo as the ideal candidate to fill the Egyptian’s shoes. 

But there is a problem

Despite the interest, there is a block in Liverpool’s plans. It is said that Real Madrid would likely demand a hefty fee ranging between €100 and €120 million for the Brazilian winger if they do decide to sell him.

Liverpool, as reported, are hesitant to meet this asking price and reports suggest that while the Reds have made offers to Real Madrid for Rodrygo, these offers have fallen short of the Spanish club’s valuation.

Whether the Reds return with improved offers for the Brazilian remains to be seen.

Luka Modric is set to stay with Real Madrid for another season, meaning he will have played more seasons with Vinicius Jr. (7) than he did with Cristiano Ronaldo (6). 

Feeling old yet? We thought so too!

Modric joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2012 after four seasons with Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, Vinicius Jr. joined Real Madrid in 2018. 

By the end of the 2023/24 season, Modric and Vinicius will have spent six seasons together. This is the same number of seasons Modric played with Cristiano Ronaldo, who was at Madrid from 2009 to 2018. 

However, with Modric set to stay for another season, he will surpass that, playing more seasons with Vinicius than with Ronaldo, the club’s all-time top scorer.

A new contract for Modric

It is important to note that Real Madrid and Modric have reached an agreement in principle for his contract renewal for another year.

At 38, Modric’s contract was set to expire at the end of the current season. For a while, it seemed the Croatian star might leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer. 

However, things have changed recently, and Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new contract. 

Interestingly, Real Madrid have also offered a renewal to Toni Kroos with club president Florentino Perez personally involved in the negotiations.

Modric and Kroos will continue

Reports suggest that Modric has agreed to the new proposal, with an agreement in principle now in place. It is also expected that Kroos will accept his offer, meaning Real Madrid will keep both veteran players for another season.

The Croatian was reportedly willing to accept a pay cut and a reduced role in the team to continue playing for Real Madrid. This flexibility may have sped up the agreement process.

His willingness to adapt to a reduced role and accept a pay cut has likely influenced the club’s decision to renew his contract for one more year.
