Following the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid will be in for a transformational summer window.

With heavy hitters like Kylian Mbappe and Endrick poised to join and some notable departures expected to take place, a shake-up in the Spanish capital is in store.

Real Madrid will count on Rafa Marin next season

Owing to Rafa Marin’s excellent progress, Real Madrid are eager to welcome him back into their ranks this summer.

Indeed, according to AS, known for his ability to read the game and his defensive aptitude, Marin is seen as a natural successor to Nacho Fernandez.

The young loanee has outdone himself at Deportivo Alaves, morphing into a mainstay for his loan team and guiding them to a respectable 10th-place position following promotion.

Although Nacho has not yet publicly announced his exit, all signs point toward a departure once his contract runs out on June 30.

With Los Blancos simultaneously also pursuing Lille’s young centre-back prodigy Leny Yoro, who continues to be high on Madrid’s wishlist, Nacho is likely to make way for the youth next season.

Real Madrid not entertaining offers for Marin

Rafa Marin has been the subject of inquiries from several La Liga teams. However, Real Madrid has retaliated by saying that Marin is not available for transfer and will stay put.

The Merengues see the 21-year-old as an integral element of their ambitions for the future, and they place a high value on his potential and abilities.

And with Nacho’s departure this summer a near-certainty, Real Madrid will be looking to beef up their options in central defence with the inclusion of Marin.

France NT growing concerned about Real Madrid star’s fitness ahead of Euros

Real Madrid star Aurelien Tchouameni is currently with the French National Team in preparation for the upcoming European Championships.

Didier Deschamps and Co. were hoping that the defensive midfielder would make a complete recovery from the stress injury on his left foot in time for the Euros, but his situation does not appear as favourable any longer.

With the commencement of the competition approaching fast, the French setup are worried and must make a decision fast, as revealed by SPORT.

Long time out

Les Bleus are still living in the optimism that Tchouameni will make it back in time for the premier event. With every passing day, however, the Real Madrid star’s availability is looking more distant.

After all, the deep-lying midfielder last played over a month ago in Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich. Since then, he missed four league games, the UCL final and two friendly games with the national team.

Should the Frenchman recover in time, there will be questions raised about his match-fitness and rightly so for 40 days is a very long hiatus in the world of football.

Urgent decision

The medical team of the French national setup have reportedly devised a specific plan to ensure that the youngster recovers at the earliest and is available for the event in Germany.

Deschamps, however, has a critical decision to make as he will not be allowed to make any changes to his squad after the tournament begins. His deadline, thus, is the 17th of June before his team’s clash against Austria.

The manager hopes to recover Tchouameni at all costs and will likely wait until the nth minute before taking a decision.

Should a replacement be required, a UEFA Medical Committee doctor will have to confirm that the injury is indeed as serious as the camp believe.
