Real Madrid: which players are out of contract or due back from loans?
We take a look at the contract situation of Real Madrid's first-team squad, following the recent extensions signed by Luka Modric and Lucas Vázquez.
As 30 June approaches, we take a look at the Real Madrid players who are either in the final days of their contract or are coming to the end of a loan deal at another club:
Real Madrid contract renewals: Modric, Vázquez… Ramos?
This season, there were three members of Madrid’s first-team group - Luka Modric, Lucas Vázquez and Sergio Ramos - whose contracts were scheduled to run out this summer. However, Modric and Vázquez will now be a part of new head coach Carlo Ancelotti's squad next term, as they have recently signed renewed deals.
Modric, who will be 36 in September, has penned a one-year extension and is set to move into the top-10 oldest players to wear the Real Madrid shirt during the coming campaign. Currently, 10th place is occupied by Chendo, whose last appearance for the club, in February 1998, came at the age of 36 years and 113 days.
Vázquez, 29, has extended his Madrid contract by three years, agreeing an improved pay packet as part of his new terms. However, that wage increase is temporarily on hold as Los Merengues deal with the financial consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.
The only player who remains out of contract at Real Madrid this summer is club captain Ramos, whose negotiations with president Florentino Pérez have completely broken down.
