It is well known at this point that a lot will change at Real Madrid next season. Right from the system to the personnel available at Carlo Ancelotti’s disposal, there will be modifications across the park at the Spanish capital.

Toni Kroos’ departure is indeed a big blow for Los Blancos, but they do have the resources available to partially fill the void the German superstar leaves.

Further, the arrival of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, needless to say, brings in exciting options on the field for Ancelotti’s side.

New captains

Nacho Fernandez, the team’s first captain, is also set to depart the Spanish capital this summer. Needless to say, the development has created doubts as to who will lead Los Blancos through the 2024/25 campaign.

As it stands, it will be Luka Modric who will serve as the team’s first captain next season replacing Nacho. At 38 years of age and with experience like none other under his belt, the honour is well deserved.

Dani Carvajal will serve as the second captain for Los Blancos, and with Modric likely to start on the bench often, will be the one to regularly don the armband for the men in white.

The third and fourth captains for next season will likely be Lucas Vazquez and Federico Valverde. As players who have spent a considerable amount of time at the club, they have imbibed the values Real Madrid demands and stand as the best-placed options.

Gunning for greatness

Real Madrid’s four captains for next season perfectly embody what the club stands for – sustained success and greatness.

Heading into the new season as the defending Spanish and European champions, Los Blancos will start as favourites across all competitions that they participate in.

With the likes of Modric and Carvajal serving as the leaders, one can say that the team is in safe hands and destined to reach new heights in 2024/25.

Real Madrid defender set to stay after requesting to see out his contract

Real Madrid welcomed four players back from loan this summer: Reinier, Rafa Marin, Juanmi Latasa, and Jesus Vallejo and bid goodbye to Marin already, while the others are expected to evaluate their futures with the club.

Vallejo joined Real Madrid in 2015, but he has primarily played on loan at other teams, including Real Zaragoza, VfB Stuttgart, Wolves, and Granada twice.

Having concluded his third stint at Granada, the player is back in the Spanish capital and now seeks a resolution over his future.

Jesus Vallejo held a meeting with Real Madrid’s hierarchy

Indeed, according to AS, Jesus Vallejo recently met with Real Madrid and made a request to fulfill the final year of his contract.

The club has opted not to exert pressure, leaving his future in his own hands: whether he decides to leave or stay, they support his decision.

After all, Vallejo has been with the club for several years, and Real Madrid intends to honour the wishes of one of the players who have been at the club for the longest time.

The 27-year-old centre-back was a part of the Real Madrid squad in the 2021/2022 season and played sparingly.

But he proved to be a dependable option when called upon and enjoyed a memorable performance in the Champions League against Manchester City as a late substitute.

Due to Real Madrid’s options at the back and the potential signing of Leny Yoro, Vallejo is unlikely to find regular game time if he opts to stay put.

Despite managing just three appearances for relegated Granada last season due to an injury, Vallejo looks forward to putting his physical woes behind him and starting afresh.
