Real Madrid set to announce ‘painful’ departures in the coming months – report

A lot has been said about the rosy aspect of the upcoming summer transfer window for Real Madrid.

Having all but completed the signing of Kylian Mbappe from PSG, Los Blancos are set to announce the transfer of the century in the coming weeks. The Frenchman, however, is only one of the several names targeted by the Merengues.

Apart from the sweet news scheduled for next month, however, is an equal share of uncertain futures that the administration must decide on. Some players, needless to say, will be forced to leave.

Painful departures

As confirmed in a recent report by Alfredo Matilla (h/t Madrid Xtra), Los Blancos are set to announce some painful departures in the coming months.

For starters, club captain Nacho Fernandez is almost certainly leaving the club of his dreams in the summer. Despite not being a regular starter, the Spaniard is a loved presence in the dressing room and amongst the fanbase.

Other players whose future is in doubt include Dani Ceballos and Fran Garcia, both of whom have not enjoyed the prominence they would have liked to this season. A departure for both players, thus, is not off the cards.

The two big questions

Toni Kroos and Luka Modric are the biggest names in Madrid on the verge of seeing their contract out. With less than a month left, both players stare at an uncertain future in the Spanish capital.

Word has it that the German veteran will continue for at least one more season, and an announcement is expected in the coming weeks.

The big uncertainty, however, is around Luka Modric. Some reports state that the Croatian superstar is set to leave this summer in what will truly be a painful departure, while others maintain that he will be offered a one-year renewal.

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.
