The Italian has only given them 30 minutes of preseason play, and the club wants them gone.
Carlo Ancelotti, the coach of Real Madrid, is accustomed to being open and truthful in both his words and deeds, and his treatment of two team members is unquestionably an example of this.
He obviously does not rely on Mariano Diaz, 26 years old, or Alvaro Odriozola (28).
No other Real Madrid player has played less than them, as each of them played 30 minutes in the Las Vegas Clasico, with the exception of Castilla players and Borja Mayoral, who joined later and is ending his move to Getafe.
We had 27 players when we arrived, and some of them had trouble playing, according to Carletto.
Both entered preseason in an extremely precarious position.
As Dani Carvajal concluded the 2021–22 season at his best, Lucas Vazquez had established himself as a regular, and to make matters worse, Vinicius Tobias had joined, Odriozola was returning from his second loan stint in a season and a half, and the right-back position was very well covered.
Because the team had failed to locate a buyer for Mariano, he was aware that his status would not change despite the exits of Luka Jovic and Borja Mayoral.
However, Odriozola arrived prepared to push his claim and claimed that his development at Fiorentina, particularly tactically, had made him return as a more accomplished footballer. He also had a contract until 2024.
The full-back has displayed exceptional professionalism, but Ancelotti has not given him a chance, therefore he will need to find a new team.
Mariano was once more leaving.
Mariano’s future prospects are not much better. Real Madrid negotiated with Benfica for him last summer, but he was apprehensive about leaving.
None of the other proposals, including one from Valencia or a last-minute offer from Rayo Vallecano, were enough to convince him, and it is unclear whether or not this particular dynamic will change over the course of the upcoming month.
The striker’s pay is the major barrier to resolving this problem with a contract that expires in 2023.
Diaz makes about 4.5 million euros a season, which is a figure that both Spanish and foreign suitors find challenging to match.
Examples include the battle between Getafe and Celta to sign Mayoral, which Getafe is expected to win, and the fact that neither club has the financial wherewithal to pursue Mariano despite the fact that the Azulones attempted to do so in June.
