The trio of Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are in the final year of their contract with the club.

So far, they are yet to commit their future to the club, and speculations have been rife about them.

Asked about Kroos and Modric, Ancelotti said he believed a “solution” would be found.

“There are advances, because they are talking,” said Ancelotti.

“I think that in the end they will look for a solution, there are advances.”

He went on: “I think (the three) will stay.

“But we have to think about the day they stop too, because, for the fact they have something unique, something will have to change.

“We have to look for the club’s future along a different line, not the way (we play) with Kroos and Modric.

“We have fantastic young players, (Eduardo) Camavinga, (Aurelien) Tchouameni, (Fede) Valverde and (Dani) Ceballos, who will mark an era at Madrid, but in a different way to Kroos, Modric and Casemiro.”
