With only a few matching remaining until the end of the season, Real Madrid have been quite proactive in negotiating with some of the players whose contracts expire at the end of the season.

However, Real Madrid have yet to formally announce the future of any of the eight such players even as we enter the final moments of the campaign.

The list of players includes Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos. All three veterans are likely to remain at Santiago Bernabeu beyond the summer, but there has been no official word on their future.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid will announce the new contracts of the veteran trio within the coming days.

In his recent YouTube video, the Italian transfer expert has confirmed that a new deal with all three of these Real Madrid veterans has already been signed and will be confirmed soon enough.

Kroos has agreed to stay at Real Madrid for one more year after flirting with the idea of early retirement. The same applies to Modric, though the Croatian international has not vowed to retire anytime soon.

There was a hint of doubt regarding the future of Benzema, but it appears even the ageing Frenchman will remain at the club. The forward had struggled with injuries this season, but made it to La Liga’s Team of the Season nonetheless, on the back of his excellent performances in 2023.

The continuity of Kroos, Modric and Benzema could be critical in Real Madrid’s transition project, which will gain a new milestone once they secure the signing of Borussia Dortmund starlet Jude Bellingham this summer.

In addition to these three veterans, Real Madrid are hopeful of keeping hold of Marco Asensio and Nacho Fernandez, though the latter is tempted by a move to the Premier League.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
