Real Madrid have a few notable names on expiring contracts, but they won’t be able to keep everyone.

The changes will keep coming for Real Madrid. Last summer, Los Blancos spent 300 million euros to sign players like Eden Hazard, Ferland Mendy, and Rodrygo Goes. And this summer, they only made sales and loans, waving goodbye to the old guard, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez, and the next generation, Achraf Hakimi and Sergio Reguilon (at least for now).

Next year, Los Blancos will be even busier. They will be buyers again, since their calm in 2020 was born out of necessity during the economic crisis. Real have one eye glued to the 2021 transfer market when their dream targets, Kylian Mbappe and Eduardo Camavinga, will be available.

But Real Madrid will also make some more sales. Isco could leave this January after requesting a transfer. Next year, Real will have expiring contracts, and they could allow one of those players to ply his trade elsewhere.

According to Eduardo Inda on El Chiringuito, via, Real Madrid “will most likely” part ways with right winger Lucas Vazquez at the end of the 2020-2021 season without offering him a new contract.

Vazquez was on the chopping block this summer, but Real Madrid opted to keep him. They were unlikely to receive satisfactory offers for him anyway, as he declined a deal that would have sent him to Qatar.

At 29, Vazquez is a useful squad player, because he can play as a right back, acquitting himself very well in the 3-1 win over Barcelona at the Camp Nou this season. He is a right winger by trade, but he isn’t at the level of Real Madrid.

Still, his professionalism and favor among the players and coaching staff have made him a regular part of the team and prevented his sale this summer. Next year, though, it could be time for Real Madrid to say goodbye to a player who has been a part of the club since 2007.

That will be a sad day, but it may be necessary in order to clear out more space for the future. Real have options over Vazquez, and they definitely have eyes on signing a big-name forward. Again, Mbappe is the absolute dream catch for Los Merengues.
