Real Madrid have as many as seven players whose contract expires at the end of the club. While the likes of Luka Modric, Karim Benzema, and potentially Toni Kroos are expected to renew, Dani Ceballos and Mariano Diaz could depart as free agents.

Nacho Fernandez’s renewal talks have come to a standstill and he too could move on in the summer. That leaves Marco Asensio, who is also facing an uncertain future at the Santiago Bernabeu.

But, according to The Athletic, the Spaniard’s entourage say that Real Madrid are willing to negotiate a new contract for the forward, with manager Carlo Ancelotti informing the player that he will be counting on him.

Asensio came very close to leaving Real Madrid in the summer after the two parties failed to come to an agreement over a new deal due to disparity in the wages being offered and demanded.

However, the Spaniard ended up staying put at the club. Having struggled to get into the team initially, Asensio gradually began to gain more prominence.

Despite that, the forward continues to remain behind Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo Goes and Federico Valverde in the pecking order when it comes to Ancelotti’s preference in the wide areas.

While he is not entirely happy with the game-time situation, Asensio is believed to be prioritising staying at the Bernabeu.

And with Real Madrid also open to negotiating a new deal with the winger, there remains a significant chance that he continues at the club beyond this summer.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
