Valverde and 4 more players who could inherit Real Madrid's captain armband next season

Earlier today, it was reported that Nacho Fernandez will not continue at Real Madrid next season. The defender, who spent over 20 years at the club, is now ready to part ways with the club of his life.

Nacho inherited the captain's armband from Karim Benzema last summer, and it looks like someone new will have to take on the captaincy duty next year.

Who will it be? Let's have a look at the options:

Luka Modric

The Croatian has been at the club for over a decade and is the first in line to get the armband. However, there's a catch - he might leave Bernabeu as well in the summer.

Dani Carvajal

A more likely candidate, Carvajal has a contract running until 2025 and is the second in line for the 'succession' as things stand.

Toni Kroos

According to the latest reports, the German will renew his contract with Los Blancos come summer and could get a captain armband as a bonus.

Lucas Vazquez

Just like Modric, the Spaniard has just two months left on his deal at Bernabeu, and the player's future at the club is still uncertain. But if he stays, he could inherit the armband as well.

Fede Valverde

The midfielder is the only undisputed starter under Ancelotti and is likely to continue being so. While significantly younger than the others and having spent just a little over five years wearing white, Fede has been 'captain material' since day one.
