Spanish publication MARCA has offered an update on the Real Madrid squad, offering a detailed report on the future of some of the players whose contracts at Santiago Bernabeu are set to expire in the coming future.

Included in that long list is Mariano Diaz. The former Lyon forward has fallen out of favour at Real Madrid and as per the report, he will not be offered any contract extension by the club.

This comes as no surprise as the forward has featured in only 25 minutes of football all season. Even as Real Madrid struggle in finding a reliable alternative for star striker Karim Benzema, it appears Diaz has no prospects in this current squad.

With his current deal expiring at the end of the season, Real Madrid are determined to get rid of the forward in the coming future. As a matter of fact, the club could even look to offload the player in the upcoming January transfer window.

The same goes for Dani Ceballos. Although the former Real Betis starlet has been far more useful than Diaz, he simply has not done enough to earn a new deal at Santiago Bernabeu. Hence, a summer exit could be on the horizon for the midfielder.

Ceballos has earned only two starts in the league this season. He was a useful bench player for Carlo Ancelotti at one point, but his progress was derailed by an unfortunate injury.

Although the Spaniard has returned to full fitness, it appears unlikely that he will be given the nod ahead of players such as Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga.

Youth player Sergio Arribas’ rapid rise to prominence does not help his cause either, while the club continue to harbour hopes of signing Jude Bellingham next summer.

Hence, Ceballos is another Real Madrid player who is in contention to depart Santiago Bernabeu in the near future, with a renewal unlikely to be forthcoming.

    Truly speaking with Ceballos,I think it is a matter of team of weighing player potential thus trying to create space by removing player like him.This guy played a very good role in Madrid having obtained all the accolades of last season.He came as a substitute in most of the time when the team performance was poor and he instilled courage to teammates,like in that game where he was afforded a penalty after being kicked by the defender.He is been given a less time of play whereas he can make a good deal of impact to the Play.

As Real Madrid gear up for their biggest test of the 2023/24 season so far against Atletico Madrid, manager Carlo Ancelotti has released the squad list for the game at the Civitas Metropolitano.

The biggest news is the inclusion of star forward Vinicius Jr in the squad, with the Brazilian seemingly making an ultra-swift recovery from his injury to make himself available for the Madrid derby.

Meanwhile, Jude Bellingham also makes the squad list after there were some concerns about his situation as he had a stomach issue on Friday.

Arda Guler has trained with the team but is still not ready for his debut while Dani Carvajal also misses out with injury. Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao remain long-term absentees.

Ferland Mendy makes a return to the squad list for a La Liga match after having recovered fully from his injury.

Youngster Nico Paz is still missing due to a knock that led to his absence in the midweek Champions League clash against Union Berlin.
