Three Real Madrid stars in Luka Modric, Sergio Ramos and Lucas Vazquez all see their contracts expire on June 30 of this year, and while there has been progress on the Croatian’s new deal, as well as that of the Los Blancos caption, Lucas has rejected the club’s first offer of a renewal.

Modric has already said yes to the offer put on the table and Ramos is still in the process of negotiating a new deal with the club, even though both can speak to other sides as they are in the last six months of the current deals. The only outlier is Lucas, who has a proposal from Real Madrid, but it hasn’t convinced him.
