Contract extensions in Madrid the sega

Contract extensions in Madrid the sega

Three of  Real Madrid stars see their contracts expire on June 30 of this year, and while there has been some progress concerning contract discussions, not all the deals have already been signed.

Luka Modric, the 2018 ballon d"or winner has already said yes to the offer placed on the table, according to Marca. Modric has agreed on a deal to stay at Real until 2022 - dashing Tottenham's hopes of re-signing their former midfielder.

Jose Mourinho was reportedly interested in bringing Modric back to north London on a free transfer in the summer. The Spurs boss has already successfully brought one Real Madrid player. However, the Croatian's recent form for Zinedine Zidane's side has persuaded the Real hierarchy to offer him an extension.

It was previously reported the 2018 Ballon d'Or winner was willing to take a pay cut to stay with Los Blancos beyond next summer, and last month stated he wanted to end his career at the club.
As a result, it is expected his new deal will see him earn less than his previous terms.

Ramos is still in the process of negotiating a new deal with the club, even though both can speak to other sides as they are in the last six months of the current deals. Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos talked to the press very briefly this past weekend and was asked about his potential contract extension with the club, one which isn’t all that obvious anymore. “We’ll see, we’ll see what happens…,” said Ramos when asked about the matter.

 The only outlier is Lucas Vazquez, who has a proposal from Real Madrid, but it hasn't convinced him.

At the start of the season, Lucas was a world away from staying at Real Madrid beyond this campaign and wasn't even being thought about for a contract renewal. The youth graduate had lost prominence in the squad and a possible departure gained traction in summer, with an offer from Qatar on the table.

It was the confidence placed in him by coach Zinedine Zidane, and his desire to stay at Real Madrid, which has made it possible for Lucas to potentially remain at the club.

Injuries to Dani Carvajal and Alvaro Odriozola have also made it possible for Lucas to earn a place in the Real Madrid starting XI for the Clasico in November, and his performance stood out so much that it has been hard to keep him out of the team since.

This change has seen something of metamorphosis as criticism turned into praise and the Real Madrid directors have taken notice with the offer of a contract renewal, which of now, hasn't been accepted by the player.
Now, the waiting game begins. Real Madrid's priority is keeping the finances under control, given the economic environment, we are in. But what seemed impossible just six months ago, has become a reality and the club is clear in which direction they have to go.
