Real Madrid have a number of players whose contracts expire at the end of the ongoing season, whose futures are yet to be resolved.

Nacho Fernandez looks certain to leave the club when his deal expires on June 30, while Toni Kroos is expected to sign a new deal and continue.

Only a while ago, reports emerged claiming that Luka Modric will not be staying at the Santiago Bernabeu even though it was suggested recently that the midfielder could continue.

Now, there is an update on the situation of another veteran star in the form of Lucas Vazquez.

Lucas Vazquez reaches agreement over one-year deal

As per journalist Ramon Alvarez, Lucas Vazquez and Real Madrid have reached an agreement to renew the versatile defender’s contract by one more year.

Vazquez has proven himself to be a more than handy alternative at right-back this season, delivering clutch performances each time he has been called upon.

Carlo Ancelotti has been impressed by the versatile right-back’s contributions and the player himself feels valued at the club.

As such, it is now being claimed that Vazquez has agreed a new one-year deal with Real Madrid and will continue at the Bernabeu until 2025.

Vazquez rejects Juventus offer

Given that he was set to become a free agent, Vazquez had plenty of interest in his services, particularly from Italian giants Juventus.

However, the 32-year-old is understood to have rejected an offer from the Bianconeri in order to prolong his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu for one more season.

After unveiling the final squad for France for the upcoming European Championship, coach Didier Deschamps appeared in front of the media to discuss the nation’s preparations for the tournament.

Deschamps was notably asked about Kylian Mbappe and his potential move to Real Madrid in the coming summer.

Deschamps on Mbappe announcement

When asked when Real Madrid may announce the signing of Mbappe, the French coach replied (h/t L’Equipe), “They will decide when it’s time to make it official. As far as possible, I will adapt to the squad.”

This comes on the back of earlier reports which claim that Real Madrid are desperate to announce the signing of Mbappe before the start of Euro 2024.

The coveted tournament begins June 14, though France’s opening game is on June 18 as they take on Austria in the city of Dusseldorf.

Deschamps also dismissed concerns over Mbappe’s form, stating, “You don’t find Kylian Mbappé in good shape? He only scored 44 goals in the season. It’s true that he could have done better.”

Deschamps on Tchouameni’s fitness

As things stand, a total of three Real Madrid players are a part of the France squad for the European Championship.

One of them is Aurelien Tchouameni, who picked up a knock earlier this month which could keep him out of the upcoming Champions League final.

Deschamps, though, is not worried about his fitness and is hopeful of having the midfielder back for the Euros.

“Tchouaméni? I’m not worried. The deadline is too short for the UCL final but for the Euro it’s more than doable,” he said.
