Midway through the season, Real Madrid’s form has seen a dip leading to questions over the lack of quality and depth in some positions of the squad.

A new left-back will very much be on the club’s agenda for the summer due to the fact that Ferland Mendy remains the only option at Carlo Ancelotti’s disposal.

However, it has also been suggested that Los Blancos could look for a new right-back as well, as indicated by their recent enquiry for Benjamin Pavard of Bayern Munich.

However, MARCA is now reporting that Real Madrid will not go for a new right-back in the summer.

As things stand, Ancelotti has Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez as his first and second choice for the right-back slot, respectively.

And, as per the report, Real Madrid retain complete faith in Carvajal and Vazquez to bear the weight next season as well. Furthermore, it is claimed that the Merengues will turn to their academy if the need arises.

The likes of Vinicius Tobias, Alex Jimenez, and Jesus Fortea all have profiles that could be of use to Ancelotti on the aforementioned front, and the manager will look to give them a chance to prove their worth.

For the time being, Carvajal holds the regular starting spot at the club with Vazquez acting as a more than able deputy. With the latter currently injured, Tobias could explode onto the scene immediately as Carvajal’s backup. Should he make an impression, the youngster’s loan move could be made permanent.

This also means that the likes of Pedro Porro, Malo Gusto, and Joao Cancelo, who was linked very recently, are off the table. Instead, Los Blancos would invest their resources in Jude Bellingham, a left-back and possibly a centre-forward.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
