Real Madrid set to close the renewal of three key players – report
A lot has been said about Real Madrid ‘s transfer plans for the coming summer transfer window. However, not enough is known about the status of existing players and their futures at the club.
Several stars like Luka Jovic, Mariano Diaz, Dani Ceballos, and Marco Asensio seem set to leave the club in the coming month. Yet, there are some players who have repeatedly impressed the management and deserve contract extensions.
According to reports from MARCA, Los Blancos have decided to renew the deals of Luka Modric and Nacho Fernandez in the coming days.
The Croatian has been the heart and soul of Real Madrid’s midfield this season and a key piece in their unbelievable Champions League run. In 24 league starts this season, the veteran has racked up two goals and eight assists including three in the last game.
Meanwhile, Nacho has seen a resurgence in recent games. The Spaniard has become a regular starter following David Alaba’s injury and has helped his team hold onto their incredible form.
In another big revelation, rumours suggest that Real Madrid and Vinicius Jr are very close to reached an agreement over a renewal. Talks are said to be in advanced stages. The new deal will see the Brazilian at the Santiago Bernabeu until 2028.
His new contract will include a release clause of €1 billion, the highest recorded to anyone in football. Karim Benzema has the same release clause in his contract, along with Barcelona’s Pedri, Ansu Fati, and Ronald Araujo.
The 22-year-old scored a hat-trick in Los Blancos’ last game against Levante and has scored 17 league goals this season. To add to his unbelievable tally, he has also provided ten assists in the league alone.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar
There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.
Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.
The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.
To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.
Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.
A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.
It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.
Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
