According to market specialists, Translermarkt, Real Madrid have ten players, which equate to a value of 177 million euro currently out on loan.
The situation at the club has changed with Zidane’s departure and Carlo Ancelotti will now need to sit down with his backroom staff and assess each case on a player by player basis. Of the ten, only Brahim with AC Milan and Borja Mayoral with AS Roma can claim to have enjoyed successful campaigns in 2020/21.
Odegaard: not for sale
Mikel Arteta has pleaded for the Norwegian’s loan term to be extended with Arsenal and Zidane’s exit may see the central player make a return to LaLiga. A situation that new boss Ancelotti needs to analyse with club deeming that the player is not for sale and maintain the ambition that saw Madrid snap the Norwegian up at the ripe again of 16.
Ceballos: Zidane leaving changes dynamic
It was clear that with Zizou on the Real Madrid bench, Dani Ceballos would not feature in the Frenchman’s side. The former Real Betis player has failed to live up to the expectation that saw him move to the capital and many at the club feel a sale would be the most astute option but once again, the arrival of the new Italian coach will be an influencing factor.
Brahim Diaz: solid season with Milan
The Malaga born player was a relative success at San Siro during the 2020/21 season and the winger has caught the eye of many an Italian club. Securing a place in the Real Madrid starting XI will be complicated for the former Man City man with the flanks covered by Brazilian pair, Vinicius and Rodrygo.
Gareth Bale: salary issues
Gareth Bale still has a year outstanding on his current Real Madrid contract and a major question-mark surrounds his future with the club from the Spanish capital. The Welshman has had a solid season back with former club Tottenham after a slow start but the wingers high salary is still regarded as a major problem for Madrid desperate to cut corners financially. Another ‘hot potato’ for Ancelotti to deal with.
Jovic: wanted in Germany
The Serbian striker has been a major disappointment since his 60 million euro to Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt. After a series of false dawns in the white shirt, the striker was sent on loan back to former club Frankfurt with the Bundesliga side anxious to retain the 23-year-old in their ranks for next season. The German club, however are not prepared to pay anything like the initial transfer fee but it’s unlikely the Serbian will be donning the white shirt in LaLiga next year.
Borja Mayoral: a hit in Rome
The striker was a success in the Italian capital and will undoubtedly play under new manager Jose Mourinho next season with one year remaining on his loan deal. AS Roma also have an option to buy for 15 million euro and Mayoral was one of the first players the new Portuguese coach contacted after taking over at the Serie A side in March.
Kubo: focus on Tokyo 2020
After a disappointing spell with Villarreal where the player was deemed surplus to requirement, the Japanese international struggled to break into a Getafe side under coach Bordalas as the club flirted with relegation. Despite glimmers of promise, the central player has yet to really make the breakthrough with his personal sights now focused on the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Reinier: dissapointing at Dortmund
Despite paying over 30 million euro for the Brazilian, Reinier was quickly sent on loan to the Bundesliga side and despite two seasons with the German giants, he has failed to make the breakthorugh that was anticipated. A sizeable question mark surrounds the next destination in his carreer path.
Vallejo: waiting on Ramos and Varane
Vallejo is a leading candidate to make a return to the Bernabéu after his solid spell with Granada. The situation regarding potential departures for both Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane will have a major role to play in a decision on the Zaragoza born central defender making a return to the Spanish capital.
Fran Garcia: looking to drive Rayo back to the top flight
Garcia is currently in the second tier with Rayo Vallecano with the side from Vallecas involved in a promotion battle after a 3-0 win over Leganes in the first leg of the play-off. Rayo have abn option to purchase the defender and the outcome of the play-off campaign will be instruemantal in the deceion making process.
