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.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
