Real Madrid to continue monitoring Trent Alexander-Arnold situation at Liverpool

Real Madrid look as if they will hang onto their pair of veteran right-backs in Lucas Vazquez and Dani Carvajal for at least another season, but that does not mean they are taking their eye off the ball regarding another potential Galactico signing.

Vazquez is out of contract this summer, and it is presumed by many that he will pen a one-year extension at the club. Carvajal, 32, is out of contract in 2025, but it emerged today that Real Madrid will try to renew his deal too.

However they will continue to monitor the situation of Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, who is also facing a contract situation with the Reds. Alexander-Arnold’s deal is expiring in 2025, and Liverpool are yet to tie him down to a new deal. If Alexander-Arnold does not end up renewing with Liverpool, then it will be a market opportunity that Real Madrid will look into – getting a player of Alexander-Arnold’s quality on a free would be something of a coup.

Real Madrid have made it part of their strategy to bring in some of the best players in Europe that are out of contract since the pandemic, starting with David Alaba, Antonio Rudiger, and many believe it will continue with Kylian Mbappe this summer. While Carvajal remains and excellent right-back, it would be foolish of Real Madrid not to go for Alexander-Arnold, if he is a possibility, to at least compete with him, in place of an ageing Vazquez.
