Who is going to stay?

Right now, if there’s someone whose future is 100% guaranteed at Real Madrid, it is only Karim Benzema. The veteran striker has been the best attacker for the club for the past three seasons, and he finished the season with 30 goals and 9 assists. He is an untouchable player for the club and he won’t go anywhere.

The next player who might most probably continue at Real Madrid is Vinicius Jr. Though there has been speculation about his future in the middle of the season, he might not leave the club. he has statistically been the club’s second-best attacker this season, and it wouldn’t make sense for the club to sell him at this age, despite the drawbacks associated with his gameplay.

A month ago, there were some doubts about Rodrygo’s future, with him having a sub-par season filled with injuries and inconsistent performances. It looked like a loan deal would be better for his development, but he did manage to end the speculation with a strong end to the season. A loan will still be beneficial for Rodrygo if he gets to play in his preferred position at the other club, but the player looks to be showing more interest to stay at Real Madrid and fight for his place.

Marco Asensio

Marco Asensio has been very disappointing this season, in all honesty. His stats and performance don’t do justice to the hype he carried and the level he had shown in 2017. He’s 25 now, but it seems like he has never taken the responsibility of being a senior. If Zidane stays, he will most probably continue at Real Madrid, but AS report that the club could be open to offers.

Eden Hazard

I don’t know what to write about Eden Hazard. Because everything has gone wrong in his case since his arrival in the summer of 2019, for a fee of 100 million. He is the highest earner at the club, but his contribution doesn’t justify any of that. We can blame bad luck, but Hazard has been disappointing and the club is slowly losing their patience with him. According to a report from ABC, Real Madrid could be ready to let him go if they receive an offer of 50 million for him.

Lucas Vazquez

Lucas has been one of the best players this season, and he has proved his worth as well as his versatility. He hasn’t renewed his contract yet and he might leave for free this summer, but a recent report from AS which states that the club has presented an improved offer for Lucas proves that everything isn’t done yet. And it would make a lot of sense for the club to try to keep him.

Mariano Diaz

Ever since Zidane’s return, Mariano has never been in Zidane’s plans, and looking at Mariano’s performances it doesn’t look like Zidane was wrong. But Mariano has been adamant with his stance that he doesn’t want to leave and fight for his place. He has wasted two seasons of his career with this stubborn nature, but he is 27 now and he should leave now for the sake of his own career. There haven’t been any rumors regarding Mariano, but the club would try their best to sell him.

Transfer targets

Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe have been the main targets for the club, as they look forward to rejuvenating the attacking line of Madrid with some big-name signings. There is a lot of speculation about both the players, and recently Lautaro Martinez’s name has emerged as an option. MARCA report that Real Madrid is interested in buying the Argentine forward and his agent had a meeting with the representatives of both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

It is going to be a long summer, and we will get to see many more rumors about the above players and many more big names being linked to Real Madrid.


A proper goalscoring winger, and a quality right-winger. A backup striker in case Mariano and Jovic both leave.
