Antonio Blanco is one of La Fabrica’s brightest talents. He formerly held a reputation as one of the most gifted midfielders in the Real Madrid youth system. He briefly served as Castilla’s captain as well.

After spending the first half of the previous season on loan at Cadiz, where he saw minimal playing time, he moved to Alaves in January. There he established himself as an important piece in their push towards promotion.

However, uncertainty currently looms over the 22-year-old youngster’s future at Real Madrid as he has no chance of breaking into the senior team.

According to AS, Real Madrid want to extend Blanco’s contract and then loan him out once more. The Merengues are still confident in his abilities and have no intentions of losing him permanently just yet.

Currently, the midfielder is on international duty with Spain at the U-21 European Championships, who face England in the final.

As per the report, Real Madrid have not forgotten about Blanco, who is having a fantastic campaign at the U-21 Euros. Los Blancos have closely observed him and believe he has merited a renewal.

Blanco would continue to play for Real Madrid with no hesitancy. In an interview in the past, he had said: “If I stay at Real Madrid, it will be great news.”

But he is aware that playing outside is preferable, with competition in the midfield department particularly peaking at the moment.

Blanco is aware that in the near future, he may have to pursue a career outside of Real Madrid. Despite his talent, this will not be the first time a prodigy has hit the exit door in search of more opportunities. Martin Odegard also left with his eyes set on greater game time.

Blanco leaving with similar aspirations is not ruled out, especially if he has to go through more loan spells.

Real Madrid out-of-favour defender now unlikely to leave the club

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.
