Real Madrid are set for a busy summer ahead, as the club’s hierarchy looks to undergo a massive squad overhaul and lay the foundation for the future era.

Naturally, the club are expected to offload multiple fringe players in the setup, and the list may even include Marco Asensio following the Spaniard’s struggles in the first team.

However, according to a report from Diario AS, Real Madrid would like to keep hold of certain individuals in order to assert some balance in the team, and three players in line to receive a contract extension are Luka Modric, Vinicius Junior and Eder Militao.

Both Militao and Vinicius are considered core members of the Real Madrid team, having established themselves as first-team regulars this season.

Vinicius has been the pick of the lot, having been involved in 35 goals in all competitions this season.

Militao, too, has built a formidable defensive partnership alongside David Alaba, helping Los Blancos emerge as the favourite to reclaim the league title and reach the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League.

Both the players are set to receive three-year contract extensions with a significant pay raise that will guarantee their future in the Spanish capital. Another player in contention to receive a renewal is Luka Modric.

Despite being 36, the Croatian international has maintained a high level of consistency in his game and has been the beating heart of the Real Madrid midfield. He has been involved in 38 matches this term, adding creative brilliance and technicality in the middle of the park.

Modric’s current contract expires at the end of the season, but Real Madrid would like to keep him at Santiago Bernabeu for at least another season.

The club’s policy entails they can only offer one-year extensions to players aged above 30, so the veteran may have to wait another season, should he want to continue to his future at the Bernabeu.

Javier Tebas may be at war with Florentino Perez over the Super League, but the La Liga president has always been a vocal supporter of Real Madrid.

Not too long ago, he spoke extensively about Real Madrid’s possible signings of Kylian Mbappe and Alphonso Davies, going as far as to state that the Frenchman might have already signed a deal with Los Blancos.

Speaking at the Football Business Summit in London recently, Tebas once again unravelled many questions about Real Madrid’s financial situations while also touching upon Kylian Mbappe and Jude Bellingham.

On finances and Mbappe

He began by praising Los Blancos for navigating their finances with utmost caution during the crucial years of the pandemic in addition to their splendid revenue generation as revealed by Mundo Deportivo.

“Real Madrid have had a very optimal management, before, during and after the pandemic. Madrid have been earning an average of €30 million per year in the last ten years at least.”

“I don’t know what they are going to pay Mbappé, but knowing their financial situation, they are not going to have a problem paying him. I think it will be much less than what PSG pays him,” he added on the speculated arrival of Mbappe.

Speaking about how Real Madrid are able to make such massive signings while other clubs in the league continue to struggle to meet La Liga’s spending limits, the league president said,

“They have removed two large salary burdens in recent years, Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale. And then they incorporated players with not-so-high investments.

“Real Madrid have then had great benefits, they achieved a significant reduction in the salaries of the players.”

Tebas further stressed the fact that Real Madrid’s financial situation was so rosy that they could invest massive amounts in squad reinforcements without facing any repercussions for the same. He insisted that it was not a bias in any way but a reward for a team that managed situations well.

“We can’t limit the one who is doing well. According to January data, Madrid could invest €700 million euros in transfers. They will not spend that at all, but the situation is so good that they could.”

Praise for Bellingham

Finally, the Spanish administrator praised Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham for his imperious form this season and went as far as to call him the best player in the world.

“Bellingham is currently the best player in the world, for his fitness and his way of playing. It is very important for us to have the best, even if you don’t always have everyone, to grow and for everything.”

“If we are all honest, he has exceeded everyone’s expectations and we hope that he will continue like this for many years,” he concluded.
