According to COPE, having already bid goodbye to four players, Real Madrid could see one more ‘shock’ departure in the coming weeks.

Los Blancos bid goodbye to Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Eden Hazard, and Mariano Diaz in the past month. But more exits had been anticipated, with out-of-favour stars such as Alvaro Odriozola, Jesus Vallejo, and Andriy Lunin expected to depart.

But now, the aforementioned report from COPE is claiming that a ‘shock’ departure is not ruled out from Real Madrid.

It goes on to add that a ‘big’ player at the club has received many offers to leave the Santiago Bernabeu this summer and is now understood to be considering his options.

There is no mention of who the player in question is in the reports but Ferland Mendy is a notable player who has been linked with an exit and could be on the move this summer.

Meanwhile, the midfield department is overbooked. But Jude Bellingham arrived only this summer and Luka Modric and Toni Kroos signed one-year deals. Eduardo Camavinga is also signing a renewal while Federico Valverde is seen as an untouchable.

Dani Ceballos may have also signed a new contract but reports had suggested that the Spaniard could leave on loan and return next season after Modric and Kroos have hung up their boots.

Aurelien Tchouameni could be another option given that the midfielder lost his starting spot in the team last season and is attracting plenty of interest from several clubs in the Premier League such as Arsenal and Chelsea.

It remains to be seen if there indeed is another big exit from Real Madrid who have already bid goodbye to their former captain Benzema this summer.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
