While Los Blancos know they can’t force any of the players to leave, they will make it clear that their best option is to continue their career elsewhere, like Luka Jovic, who is set to join Fiorentina.

Seven players are set to see their deals expire next summer

Real Madrid are keen to thin out their first-team squad, and they’re ready to make their message loud and clear to those no longer wanted. While Los Blancos know they can’t force any of the players to leave, they will make it clear that their best option is to continue their career elsewhere, like Luka Jovic, who is set to join Fiorentina. Isco, Gareth Bale and Marcelo all saw their contracts expire on June 30 after a season in which all three players rarely saw the field. With seven players set to see their deals expire next summer, Real Madrid are hoping those mentioned above three serve as an example. Dani Ceballos and Marco Asensio want regular playing time, which may prove difficult at Madrid in 2022/23, while Mariano and Borja Mayoral have been told their services are no longer required.

Real Madrid have 27 first-team players

Kroos, Nacho and Lunin are the other three who have contracts expiring, but the goalkeeper has already begun talks to renew his contract, and with the defender, they hope to agree on a new deal soon. The German, as reported, refused to renew last May as he would prefer to wait and see his physical response and the role he plays before saying yes. Real Madrid have 27 first-team players. They will be gradually incorporated into the squad from Friday, July 8 onwards. The accounts are clear, and nobody can deny that there are too many players. Furthermore, the club’s theory is that an excess of players in the dressing room creates unrest and tension, which the club is trying to minimise.

 

Of those 27, two players know they are going to leave. Kubo and Reinier know that, as they occupy a non-EU place, they must look for a new home. Benfica seem to be the Brazilian’s option. Not all of them will be able to leave (it is hoped that two or three will go), but the aim is to reduce the squad size and balance the wage bill. The youth academy will provide support with Juanmi Latasa at the head. Whether Mariano leaves or not is still in question. Although the prospect of buying anyone new is closed, departures could force it open again after the arrivals of Tchouameni and Rudiger.
