Real Madrid are facing an important summer ahead, with the club having to make some key decisions in regard to the future of experienced stars.

Nacho Fernandez and Lucas Vazquez, in particular, are two players whose future remain unresolved, with the season soon coming to an end.

Recent reports have indicated that Nacho might move on and leave Real Madrid at the end of the season. It appears the veteran defender wants to try out new challenges elsewhere, with Inter Milan emerging as a potential suitor.

Vazquez to announce his decision soon

As uncertainty looms over the future of Nacho, Matteo Moretto (h/t Madrid Xtra) has offered an update on Lucas Vazquez.

The versatile defender’s contract at Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of the season. But as per Moretto, the player is favouring a stay, unlike Nacho.

However, it must be noted that Vazquez has yet to take the final decision even though he is indeed inclined towards a prolonged spell at the Bernabeu.

Vazquez has been with the Real Madrid first-team for nine years now and it appears the player is ready to complete ten years with the club by extending until 2025. Formerly of the club’s youth academy, Vazquez had rejoined Real Madrid back in 2015.

As per Moretto, Vazquez will take the final decision on his future in the coming weeks. His decision may coincide with the closure of Nacho or Luka Modric’s futures as well.

Both veterans are facing an uncertain future and may leave Bernabeu at the end of the season, which could certainly be a blow for a Real Madrid side currently going through a transition period.

Even with all the excitement around Kylian Mbappe, it is Vinicius Junior, who continues to be Real Madrid’s biggest star.

In the past few years, the Brazilian has witnessed substantial growth, notably establishing himself as one of the best players in world football.

Vinicius’ rapid rise to prominence has been backed by numbers as well, with the forward racking up 82 goals and 75 assists in 262 competitive matches for Real Madrid.

Vinicius on receiving advice from Ronaldo

In a recent media interaction, Vinicius Junior, when talking about his success at Real Madrid, revealed that the forward constantly receives advice from his compatriot and former Real Madrid legend Ronaldo.

Vinicius particularly pointed out Ronaldo’s advice in 1v1 situations and how it has helped him improve in such scenarios.

“Ronaldo always calls me and gives me advice, he teaches me so many things. Since he told me that his favourite thing is a 1v1 vs a GK, I thought about it a lot and started working on it really hard,” Vinicius said (h/t Madrid Zone).

“Now, every time I’m in a 1v1 with a GK, I’m the calmest guy in the world. Ever since that conversation with Ronaldo, I stopped being afraid of making mistakes in a 1v1,” the forward added.

Vinicius has indeed witnessed an improvement in his 1v1 play in recent years, which has been reflected in his higher goalscoring numbers.

This season, the forward has netted 23 goals in all competitions while racking up 11 assists. His goalscoring prowess, coupled with his ability in 1v1 situations could prove to be critical as Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final next month.

The Brazilian international, though, will be up against a challenging defensive duo of Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, who have been able to keep the opposition attacks quiet this season.
