Lucas Vázquez, open front

first_imgMadrid has an open front with Lucas Vázquez that must be resolved next summer. The Galician winger ends his contract in 2021 and no one from the club has yet contacted the footballer’s agent to discuss an extension of his relationship. Some contacts that are difficult to come about because the leaders do not see this option at all clear.Lucas is currently 28 years old (he turns 29 on July 1), so his contract will end one day after turning 30. His performance since he returned to Real Madrid in 2015-16 has been faultless, although it is true that in no season has he earned the status of starter. He has been an important man for all coaches, but without consolidating in eleven. This is precisely why in the directive they are not in favor of extending their contract. They understand that the squad needs fresh air to go giving the alternative to the large number of young footballers that the club has signed. Lucas brings depth to the squad, although they think of the club that at 28 years old it is difficult to have a greater importance in the future than it has had in previous years. Nevertheless, They believe that footballers like Brahim, Vinicius or Rodrygo, who Lucas is now scratching for minutes, can grow a lot if they have an important role.With this situation, Madrid plans to meet Lucas when the season ends. The idea is to see what the footballer thinks, who will have two options: look for a way out (the club would provide facilities) or continue one more year and go free in 2021. He is a footballer who has never generated any problems, either inside or outside the locker room, so the board will not fault the Galician’s decision.ZidaneThe last word, however, will be Zidane, who has always opted for Lucas Vázquez. However, this time there will be little room for maneuver. Currently Madrid has 25 players in the first team and there are footballers who are going to return from their assignments (Achraf, Odegaard …). In addition, new reinforcements will arrive. Not all fit. Simply because there would not be enough chips. Therefore, in Madrid they understand that the best for all parties could be a departure from Lucas Vázquez. There are still months to close the open front, but today the future of the Galician is more in the air than ever …last_img
