Rodrygo’s contract to be extended.
So, the two Brazilian wingers will have their contract extended and wages improved considerably. It seems the contract of Vinicius and Rodrygo will be extended until 2027. Vinicius wanted to extended until 2026, but Perez wanted 2027 and the player accepted. Regarding Rodrygo, Real wanted to extend until 2028, but the player thinks until 2027, like Vini, is good enough.
Rodrygo’s plan is to annouce his extension after Vinicius.

Will Asensio leave?
Asensio clear has clearly gone down in Carlo’s selecting order in the final part of the season. Let’s remember - he started both games vs PSG. But after that he didn’t start in any of UCL games and Carlo only sub him in the 2nd leg vs City.
Giving credit where is due, I think he had a good season domestically. He was starter in several La Liga games and also scored important goals. I had the impression that Carlo trusted him. But, for me, it is clear that Valverde contributes much more defensively in these important games, can help more with the build up and also with his runs behinds defensive lines. And, if Carlo wants - to quote Kiyan - “chaos ball” in the second-half, I think Rodrygo certainly fits much more than Asensio.
