Real Madrid to begin contract talks with veteran defender, happy with performances

With the renewals of Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez for one more year already closed, Real Madrid are now planning to begin contract talks with another veteran star in Dani Carvajal.

This information comes from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who states that the reigning European champions will begin focusing on Carvajal’s renewal in the coming months.

Real Madrid are very happy with Carvajal

Dani Carvajal has been the undisputed starter at right-back for Real Madrid for years now. The 32-year-old experienced some difficulties a few seasons ago due to injuries but over the past 12-18 months, has been back to his very best.

Real Madrid, for their part, are understood to be very happy with the veteran Spaniard’s performances and commitment to the club.

Carvajal ended the 2023/24 season with seven goals and five assists from 41 appearances across all competitions – including a crucial goal in the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund.

The right-back has carried that form over to the international stages as he scored in Spain’s UEFA Euro opener against Croatia this past weekend.

Renewal talks to begin soon

As such, given how happy Real Madrid are with Carvajal, they intend to open new contract talks with the veteran right-back in the months to come.

The 32-year-old Spaniard’s current deal expires in 2025, meaning he could leave the club for free next year, which it appears that the Merengues are eager to avoid by offering him an extension.

Carvajal will continue as the first-choice right-back at Real Madrid at least for the next season and if he maintains his current form, there is no ruling out that he will retain his position for one more year, with his renewal very much on the cards now.

Real Madrid defender set to stay after requesting to see out his contract

Real Madrid welcomed four players back from loan this summer: Reinier, Rafa Marin, Juanmi Latasa, and Jesus Vallejo and bid goodbye to Marin already, while the others are expected to evaluate their futures with the club.

Vallejo joined Real Madrid in 2015, but he has primarily played on loan at other teams, including Real Zaragoza, VfB Stuttgart, Wolves, and Granada twice.

Having concluded his third stint at Granada, the player is back in the Spanish capital and now seeks a resolution over his future.

Jesus Vallejo held a meeting with Real Madrid’s hierarchy

Indeed, according to AS, Jesus Vallejo recently met with Real Madrid and made a request to fulfill the final year of his contract.

The club has opted not to exert pressure, leaving his future in his own hands: whether he decides to leave or stay, they support his decision.

After all, Vallejo has been with the club for several years, and Real Madrid intends to honour the wishes of one of the players who have been at the club for the longest time.

The 27-year-old centre-back was a part of the Real Madrid squad in the 2021/2022 season and played sparingly.

But he proved to be a dependable option when called upon and enjoyed a memorable performance in the Champions League against Manchester City as a late substitute.

Due to Real Madrid’s options at the back and the potential signing of Leny Yoro, Vallejo is unlikely to find regular game time if he opts to stay put.

Despite managing just three appearances for relegated Granada last season due to an injury, Vallejo looks forward to putting his physical woes behind him and starting afresh.
