Real Madrid's 'S*** Season' Is Now Over Says Dani Carvajal

It seems that the 29-year-old is destined for a new challenge next season, while a Real Madrid side in transition search for their new savior.

Tadic, who joined Ajax from Southampton previous year, put in a fantastic performance at the Bernabeu to help his side reach the quarter finals of Europe's elite competition.

Still, at least Ramos will be available for Real Madrid's second group game in next season's Champions League.

Two defeats - at home in the past week - to archrival Barcelona, the yin to their yang, had meant Real Madrid were out of the Spanish Cup and, barring divine intervention, out of the race for the Spanish title.

Young challengers Ajax sent the three-time reigning champions packing in the Round of 16 with a 4-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night.

- Madrid have lost four successive games at the Bernabéu for just the third occasion in their history - also doing so in 1995 and 2004. "We always believed that if we could play our own game we could cause them problems", said Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt. When they pulled one back to narrow the deficit, Ajax immediately hit back with an improbable looping free kick to make it 4-1.

"No not yet. Only during my contract signing, they said: try to knock out Real".

In the 62nd minute, Tadic finished off another graceful Ajax attacking move with a thunderous top-shelf strike to go up 3-0.

The latter of that pair is heading to Barcelona next season, meaning Real have far from seen the back of him. It's been a comedy of errors that has led Real Madrid to this point, and just how numerous current players and coaching staff will last until next season is up in the air.

They looked on track after a goalless first half, during which Vinicius Junior's missed chances would come back to hurt them.

"It's impossible to forget what he has done for this club and the work he has put in to give us so much success, he knows this will return again soon with lots of work".

After the final whistle Madrid defender Dani Carvajal declared that Los Blancos season is over.

The following day, Real sacked Lopetegui and replaced him with Santiago Solari.
