Real Madrid are gearing up for a summer of change in 2023. With multiple players set to run down their contracts at the end of the season, the club have their task cut out in their bid to keep hold of those stars.

However, not every one of them will be retained, with players such as Mariano Diaz and Dani Ceballos looking at an uncertain future at Santiago Bernabeu.

A recent report from ABC Deportes (h/t Madrid Xtra) has offered an update on the future of Diaz. The forward, whose current contract at the Bernabeu expires at the end of the season, has fallen out of favour under Carlo Ancelotti, with very little role in the first team.

Diaz has indeed featured in a total of just 20 minutes of league football this term even though Real Madrid had gotten rid of Luka Jovic in the summer. He has fallen behind the likes of Karim Benzema, Rodrygo, and Marco Asensio in the pecking order.

The report suggests Diaz is looking for a contract extension with Real Madrid despite his apparent struggles. It appears the forward’s agents have tried multiple times in the past to convince Los Blancos to hand him a renewal.

The player is even willing to take up a significant salary cut in his bid to remain at Santiago Bernabeu and fight for his place in the Real Madrid setup.

However, the club have been swift in turning back those attempts. They are clear about their intention of not renewing the contract of Diaz, who might be even available for sale in the upcoming January transfer window.

With his contract expiring in the summer, this will be an excellent opportunity for Real Madrid to cash in on Diaz and generate some amount of revenue.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
