The summer transfer window heated up once again as Real Madrid might offload one of their star defenders who demonstrated exceptional performances for the last few seasons.
Madrid may have successfully clinched the La Liga and UEFA Champions League Title last season but now they are on the verge of dilemma on reshaping their defense as Marcelo left them as free agent this summer.
Despite the signing of German International Antonio Rudiger made Madrid a praiseworthy club once again, Carlo Ancelotti might need to think of other players for numerous issues as well.
David Alaba joined the Los Blancos last season as a center-back from Bayern Munich while he also can be used as a left-back occassionally and this might trigger the end of French defender Ferland Mendy.
Rumors are spreading that Real Madrid manager Ancelotti might set Rudiger and Eder Militao on central position while pushing Alaba on the left side of their defense which obviously leave Mendy on an unusual scenario since joining Madrid on 2019 as he might not get the usual chances that he used to enjoy over Marcelo.
Football experts are divided on Mendy issue as there could be both positive and negative effects, for instance, Madrid might get a handsome amount for the French left-back who has a contract until 2025, on the other hand, his absence might put Madrid on many risk factors like unstable defensive capabilities on important games during the upcoming season.
Miguel Gutierrez from Real’s reserve team is a future prospect for the Madridistas as he could also be used alongside David Alaba for the left-back position if Ferland Mendy eventually leaves the Spanish capital.
Madrid fans might get upset if they lose Mendy on this window, however they could become happier again if Ancelotti establishes some new and experienced player on left-back position of his first-team.
