The good news of Toni Kroos’ renewal until 2025 will be accompanied by two other significant developments. As AS learned, the club is also expected to announce next week the contractual extension for one more season of two of the youth players most loved by the Bernabéu fans: Nacho and Lucas Vázquez. The conversations have crystallized quickly and well. Therefore, after Madrid-Athletic in the League and taking advantage of the fact that next week there are no matches for Ancelotti’s team due to the break caused by the Cup final (Athletic-Mallorca in La Cartuja on April 6), the club will announce that both Nacho (34 years old) and Lucas (32) will continue at least until 2025.

Carlo Ancelotti and the rest of his technical staff have conveyed to the entity’s noble floor that the double decision is quite correct given the high performance that the two youth players have given so far this season.

Nacho’s case is significant because the serious injuries to Militao (last August) and Alaba (in December) gave him a starting role that he had not enjoyed in previous years. Nacho knew how to take on the challenge firmly, and even more so this year as the first captain after Benzema left for Saudi Arabia. Nacho will play his 30th game of the season against Athletic on Sunday, so he will end the year with over 40. The Complutense native already made it clear in the summer that “unlike last season, this year I have taken it differently.” . “I am enjoying every game without thinking about the future.” Madrid let him choose because of his impeccable career as One Club Man (only shared by Zárraga, Sanchis Sr., Camacho and Chendo) and Nacho happily accepts to continue for another year in the team of his life.

In the case of Lucas Vázquez it has been similar. Despite the season that Dani Carvajal (32) has been in, the Galician all-rounder has performed at a very high level in the minutes that Ancelotti has given him since the course started in San Mamés in August. Curtis’s player has already accumulated 26 games at this point, with one goal and no less than four assists. His goal was “golden” when he achieved it in Mendizorroza against Alavés in the last minute of the match with the Vitorians (0-1). His header gave three crucial points in the fight for League 36.

That, together with his important weight in the locker room as he is one of the veterans who most helps integrate the young people who are arriving at Valdebebas, has made him an asset not only in sports that Ancelotti highly values ​​to the point of having expressly requested its continuity. The club has ruled out signing any right-back this summer, considering that with Carvajal and Lucas the position is more than well covered. Therefore, next week Real Madrid’s idea is to announce the renewal of Kroos and, subsequently, those of Nacho and Lucas Vázquez. Homegrown players, Spanish and very Real Madrid fans. Continuity more than deserved.
