All the news that are being published lately seem to indicate that we will not see any revolution around Real Madrid's roster this season. No big signings are expected, other than David de Gea (who will reportedly become a Real Madrid player this week) and, therefore, there will not be a big exodus either.

According to Marca's reporter José Félix Díaz, Nacho Fernández will stay in Real Madrid next season. The player is claimed to have talked to his new coach Rafa Benítez very recently, and the latter is said to have confirmed his interest on Nacho's continuation in the team.

With the signing of Danilo, the obvious continuation in the team of Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Carvajal and Marcelo, and this news regarding Nacho, a spot in Real Madrid's defence is available to either Arbeloa or Coentrao. One of them (if not both) will likely leave the team before the pre-season ends. The defence will be compensated if it is the Spartan, but a new left-back would be needed if Coentrao is the chosen one.
