Karim Benzema has taken the world by storm and is single-handedly carrying Real Madrid’s forward line at the moment. Further, the support from Vinicius Jr on the left wing has been a useful resource for Ancelotti’s side.

However, no player has been able to claim the right-wing position as their own. Rodrygo and Marco Asensio are the players who have been granted the most opportunities to impress but have both struggled.

With a major revamp planned for the summer, shipping out the deadwood becomes important for Los Blancos. One of the players considered transferable by the La Liga leaders is Asensio.

According to reports from Daniele Longo, AC Milan are in constant contact with the Spanish international and are planning a move for him in June. It is said that the Italians have been scouting the player for over a year.

The Milan based side recently sent a representative to talk to Asensio’s father in Madrid, further cementing the rumours of their interest. However, there are several teams in the Premier League keeping tabs on the forward too.

The 26-year-old has played in 25 La Liga games this season, scoring eight goals and creating one big chance. Despite his ability to score goals out of difficult positions, the player is deemed transferable because of his inconsistency.

Los Blancos value Asensio at around €25 million euros, a reasonable fee in today’s inflated market. Given that two of AC Milan’s forwards, Ibrahimovic and Giroud, are in the final years of their careers, the Italians will be tempted to go all out to sign the Spaniard.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
