3 of 4


Jude Bellingham - Keep. One of the best players in the world - Next.

Toni Kroos - Keep. It remains to be seen what happens with the future of Toni Kroos as his contract expires this season. He's had a great campaign, so it would be great if Madrid kept him on for at least one more season.

Brahim Diaz - Keep. Had a great season since returning from his loan spell. He's versatile, which helps Carlo Ancelotti massively.

Aurelien Tchouameni - Keep. One of the most valuable players at Real Madrid but I don't think they should cash in since his involvement in the squad is more important.

Federico Valverde - Keep. There is talk of Federico Valverde being sold this summer but ultimately that could haunt Real Madrid. He embodies what the club is about so removing Fede would remove an essence of the club culture.

Eduardo Camavinga - Keep. Camavinga signed a contract extension at the start of the season, so there is no reason for Real Madrid to ponder or even entertain his sale.

Arda Guler - Loan. Not sure why he didn't go out on loan in 2023/24, to be honest. Next season, he should be given an opportunity to develop elsewhere.

Luka Modric - Sell. There is no denying that Modric is a Real Madrid legend but he seems disinterested with remaining at the club. Therefore, he should be allowed to enter discourse with other clubs over a free transfer.

Dani Ceballos - Sell. Ceballos was once a promising youngster but he is now at the peak of his career and remains a fringe Real Madrid player. For his own sake, he should be sold to a club who can guarantee him game-time.
