An important departure in sight for Real this summer?
With the arrival of Alaba, a locker room executive is expected to leave the White House. At the end of the contract and not yet extended, Sergio ramos could leave the Merengues as a free player. Negotiations for the extension of his contract began months ago. Injured, the Andalusian defender will also miss the next Euro. His name is strongly associated with Paris Saint-Germain. Leonardo wishes to strike a blow at zero euros by recruiting the experienced Spanish international (180 selections / 23 goals). Like Ramos, Raphael Varane is not sure whether to wear the white tunic next season. There is only one year of contract for the tricolor world champion with Real. It remains to be seen which of these two exchanges will be sacrificed to make room for David Alaba.
