Real Madrid’s midfield is set for the next decade
As for the midfield, this could get a little chaotic. Real Madrid brought in Tchouameni and he will be the backup (or could we maybe even say partner?) of Carlos Casemiro at defensive midfield. That then leaves the center of the pitch. Currently, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are taking over the two available spots. However, their backups are there and have proven themselves countless times throughout the last season.
Federico Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga have been a joy to watch, particularly towards the end of the campaign and they will get more chances this season. Dani Ceballos is also part of the squad at the moment. Real Madrid plans to let him go but that will only happen if an acceptable offer comes in, which it hasn’t so far.
Ceballos on the other hand would prefer to stay but understandably wants more playing time guarantees. If that is something that Ancelotti cannot give him then he will be happy to leave. However, the issue remains that no clubs have made any official offers for the Spaniard yet.
Even if Ceballos leaves during the summer, there is no need to bring in any replacements. Real Madrid is more than okay with the current choices at their disposal. It will be hard enough for Ancelotti to find the right times to make rotations, adding more players will just add more headaches for the legendary Italian manager.
