This past Saturday was a momentous one for Real Madrid. Their dominant 3-0 victory over Cadiz at the Santiago Bernabeu, coupled with Barcelona’s surprising 2-4 defeat to Girona, officially sealed Los Blancos’ fate as La Liga champions for the 2023/24 season.

But since the Barcelona defeat came after the Real Madrid game, La Liga has designated May 11th, the away match against Granada, as the official trophy presentation.

Real Madrid do not want to celebrate trophy vs Granada

However, in a significant development, a recent report from MARCA suggests that Real Madrid players are not keen on celebrating the trophy against Granada away from home.

It appears Real Madrid players prefer not to receive the trophy at Granada’s Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes as it may coincide with the home team’s relegation to the second division.

Granada are currently languishing in the 19th position and another defeat this coming weekend could seal their relegation from the top-flight.

Lifting the trophy amidst Granada’s potential heartbreak presents an emotional challenge for the Real Madrid players.

As such, Los Blancos have requested RFEF to hand them the league trophy at the Bernabeu on May 14, when they play Deportivo Alaves.

Real celebrations at Cibeles

Regardless of whether or not Real Madrid celebrate away from home, Real Madrid’s true celebration will occur on Sunday.

An open-top bus parade through the streets of Madrid, culminating at the Cibeles fountain, will be the heart of the festivities.

While a Bernabeu celebration is off the table due to pre-booked concerts, a fan-player gathering is planned for May 8th, potentially following the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.

In the meantime, Real Madrid will hope that RFEF agrees to listen to their plea and delay their coronation till the next home game.

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.
