Big doubt around a Real Madrid priority?

Real Madrid are in full hesitation regarding their midfielder for next season.

Second in La Liga and still involved in the Champions League (against Liverpool, in the round of 16), the Spanish club seems to be at a crossroads at the end of the season. Indeed, many Real Madrid players are at the end of their contract in June 2023. If, in some cases, such as those of Eden Hazard or Mariano Diaz, the Spanish club is little concerned, the two players being pushed towards the exit , it is not the same scenario for Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, even Dani Ceballos.

The Croatian, Ballon d’or 2018, is old (37 years old) and courted in an exotic country. At the end of his career, Luka Modric could be seduced by the huge salary that Al-Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo’s training, would offer him. But the midfielder would not especially say no to an extension of Real Madrid, according to information from brand.

For Toni Kroos (33), the case is similar. The German has not made his decision, but could go to MLS (United States). Real Madrid are patient, which influences the Jude Bellingham case.

Bellingham to replace Kroos and Modric?

Indeed, always says brand, the Spanish formation will throw themselves on the Englishman if Toni Kroos and/or Luka Modric leave. A possible departure of Dani Ceballos, who is out of contract in June 2023, will make a recruitment in midfield even more urgent. But if the three elements stay at Real Madrid, and extend, the purchase of Jude Bellingham will be less urgent, if not necessary.

That said, the Borussia Dortmund midfielder’s record may not be easy for Real Madrid to achieve, especially since Englishman Jude Bellingham would prefer a club from his native country, namely Liverpool.

The next few weeks will be decisive.
