A recent report from Mundo Deportivo has offered a comprehensive update on Real Madrid’s plans with some of the players whose contracts are expiring at the end of the season.

There are seven players whose current deals at the Santiago Bernabeu run down in the summer of 2023. However, even though Real Madrid have yet to extend the contract of any of the players, the club have laid down plans for the same.

Karim Benzema, for one, is one of the undisputed stars in the team and after securing the Ballon d’Or this year, the Frenchman is expected to receive a contract extension at Bernabeu. The club will expect him to continue for at least another year before they eventually splash the cash on a younger forward.

Much like Benzema, Real Madrid also want to extend the contract of Luka Modric and Marco Asensio, who has enjoyed a return to prominence. Although Asensio has been lately linked with a move to Barcelona, the Spaniard will likely be handed a new deal.

These are the three players that are destined to receive new deals at Santiago Bernabeu. But there are certain individuals, whose future at the club depends on various factors.

One of them is Toni Kroos. Although Real Madrid are more than willing to hand the German a new deal, the player is contemplating an early retirement from professional football.

Nacho Fernandez, on the other hand, could consider a move away from Santiago Bernabeu after playing second fiddle to first-choice Real Madrid defenders for years. The club are satisfied with his performances, but whether or not the veteran chooses to renew remains uncertain.

As for Dani Ceballos, the midfielder has struggled with a lack of game-time and injuries and has never quite managed to fulfill his potential. There might be a possibility that he will renew, but it will depend on many factors.

Finally, there is one player who is destined to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season. The player in question is Mariano Diaz, who has no prospect at Santiago Bernabeu under Carlo Ancelotti and could finally leave the next summer, on a free transfer.

In a major development, journalist Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has decided to sign a new contract with the club and will pen a four-year deal to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 26-year-old midfielder’s current contract with Real Madrid stands to expire at the end of the season. And there had been conflicting reports over whether he would be offered a new deal by the Merengues.

But the Spaniard has managed to turn things around spectacularly in recent weeks, putting up top displays one after the other, helping Real Madrid emerge out of a poor run at the start of the new year.

It has convinced the club to hand him a new contract and it seems like things are moving swiftly on the renewal front for Ceballos.

Indeed, as per the update from Tomas Gonzalez-Martin, Real Madrid have decided to offer him a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2027. It will see the midfielder receive an improved salary to the one that he is currently earning.

And Ceballos has decided to sign the deal. The former Real Betis ace has always maintained that he wants to continue at the Bernabeu beyond the current campaign. And the two parties could now be close to shaking hands on a new contract.

Ceballos joined Real Madrid from Real Betis back in 2017, arriving as one of the most talented young midfielders in La Liga. However, he found the going tough initially, thanks to the hegemony of the midfield trio of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, and Casemiro.

The Spaniard spent a couple of seasons on loan at Arsenal before returning to the club in 2021. If not for an injury while away at the Tokyo Olympics, Ceballos could have been sold that year.

Having returned to action in January last year, he has slowly but surely gained importance in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans. And he is now set to be rewarded with a new four-year contract by the champions of Spain and Europe.
