Journalist Guillermo Rai has affirmed via The Athletic that Real Madrid have already offered contract renewals to the likes of Marco Asensio and Nacho, while a certain Dani Ceballos is expected to receive one too.

As it turns out, however, the trio is still uncertain regarding their playing time next season, hence the delay in signatures. The journalist adds that while the players have established Madrid as an absolute priority, they have their fair share of doubts because of their lack of minutes.

Any decision regarding their future will be made by the players themselves. Furthermore, considering the interest they have generated, finding a resolution is going to be quite difficult, even for the players.

We have reported before that Asensio is a subject of interest for Premier League side Aston Villa. Barcelona’s sporting director, Mateu Alemany, who is said to be joining hands with Unai Emery at Villa, wants to sign the winger and for that, they are ready to offer a lucrative contract worth €8 million per year.

It must be noted that Asensio’s deal with Real Madrid ends at the end of the season and the player has been in talks with the team for quite a long time. As of today, though, there is no progress.

Now, the winger is said to be open to Premier League experience, but right now, his priority is Real Madrid.

As far as Ceballos is concerned, Madrid have already offered a three-year contract to the midfielder, but the catch is, the new offer does not come with an increase in salary nor an improvement in his role within the team.

This is where the negotiation is stuck. Like Asensio, Ceballos wants Real Madrid but he is not willing to settle for a secondary role and the arrival of Jude Bellingham will only push him down the pecking order.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
