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.

Javier Tebas may be at war with Florentino Perez over the Super League, but the La Liga president has always been a vocal supporter of Real Madrid.

Not too long ago, he spoke extensively about Real Madrid’s possible signings of Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies, going as far as to state that the Frenchman might have already signed a deal with Los Blancos.

Speaking at the Football Business Summit in London recently, Tebas once again unravelled many questions about Real Madrid’s financial situations while also touching upon Kylian Mbappe and Jude Bellingham.

On finances and Mbappe

He began by praising Los Blancos for navigating their finances with utmost caution during the crucial years of the pandemic in addition to their splendid revenue generation as revealed by Mundo Deportivo.

“Real Madrid have had a very optimal management, before, during and after the pandemic. Madrid have been earning an average of €30 million per year in the last ten years at least.”

“I don’t know what they are going to pay Mbappé, but knowing their financial situation, they are not going to have a problem paying him. I think it will be much less than what PSG pays him,” he added on the speculated arrival of Mbappe.

Speaking about how Real Madrid are able to make such massive signings while other clubs in the league continue to struggle to meet La Liga’s spending limits, the league president said,

“They have removed two large salary burdens in recent years, Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale. And then they incorporated players with not-so-high investments.

“Real Madrid have then had great benefits, they achieved a significant reduction in the salaries of the players.”

Tebas further stressed the fact that Real Madrid’s financial situation was so rosy that they could invest massive amounts in squad reinforcements without facing any repercussions for the same. He insisted that it was not a bias in any way but a reward for a team that managed situations well.

“We can’t limit the one who is doing well. According to January data, Madrid could invest €700 million euros in transfers. They will not spend that at all, but the situation is so good that they could.”

Praise for Bellingham

Finally, the Spanish administrator praised Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham for his imperious form this season and went as far as to call him the best player in the world.

“Bellingham is currently the best player in the world, for his fitness and his way of playing. It is very important for us to have the best, even if you don’t always have everyone, to grow and for everything.”

“If we are all honest, he has exceeded everyone’s expectations and we hope that he will continue like this for many years,” he concluded.
