The latest La Liga transfer news suggests the Spanish giants could let many of them leave for free rather than extending their stay, as that makes more financial sense.
We look at the three stars who are expected to leave their clubs in 2024.
Luka Modric is widely regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of all time, having helped Madrid win five Champions League trophies and three La Liga titles.
The 38-year-old has made only nine La Liga starts under Carlo Ancelotti this season. With his contract expiring in June, the club have made it clear a new deal will not be offered to the Croatian (per Sport).
Modric turned down a monstrous offer from Saudi Arabia last summer, and they could make a fresh attempt to secure his signature in the next transfer window.
Sergi Roberto has spent all his career at Barcelona, making over 350 senior appearances. However, he has been struggling for minutes under Xavi Hernandez this season, making only four La Liga starts.
The Spainiard’s contract will run out at the end of the campaign, but the club have the option to extend it by another year.
Roberto has expressed hopes of remaining in Catalonia beyond the summer, but it is uncertain whether Barca will renew his deal as he hasn’t been very dependable in a fitness sense this campaign.
Marcos Alonso is another Barcelona star whose contract will run out this summer.
The 33-year-old has made just four appearances in the Spanish top flight this season and is currently sidelined with a back injury.
The Blaugrana have the option to extend his stay by another year, but they may opt to let him leave in the summer.
The Catalans’ financial issues are well known, and they will look for every measure to reduce their costs.
