Ancelotti and his assistant prioritising staying at Real Madrid next season



Carlo Ancelotti has seemingly turned around his situation at Real Madrid. The dark clouds hovering over his future come June seemed impossible to turn back. Yet, it is in Ancelotti’s blood to make the impossible possible.

Over the past month, the Italian tactician has rejuvenated Los Blancos. The men in white are dancing on the field once more and are the favourites to not only lift the Copa del Rey but a second consecutive UEFA Champions League.

According to reports from Mario Cortegana, Ancelotti’s priority is to stay in Madrid and see out his contract. The journalist also adds that the manager’s son and assistant coach Davide Ancelotti also prioritises staying at Real Madrid.

The report, in a flash, put end to so many of the rumours circulating in the media over the past month.

For starters, Ancelotti is unperturbed by the club’s open links with Mauricio Pochettino and has handled the case with grace. There is no element of disrespect felt on his part.

Moreover, the story of Davide Ancelotti wishing to move away from his father’s shadow to try his first solo venture in Europe can also be put to bed.

Most importantly, Ancelotti’s desire to stay in Spain closes the doors to a possible move to the Brazilian national team in the summer.

The Selecao were said to be desperately hoping to sign the maestro, and though players like Vinicius and Rodrygo publicly acknowledged the interest, it does not appear to be happening.

The 63-year-old has overseen 103 games in his second stint at the club, winning 72 and losing only 17. Furthermore, he is on course to win every competition there is to win at Real Madrid in his second stint if his side lifts the Copa del Rey next month.

Harry Kane ‘very close’ to completing Real Madrid move, only final details remain – report



Jude Bellingham’s move to Real Madrid was finally closed earlier today as officially confirmed by Borussia Dortmund on their website. Yet, the offices at Santiago Bernabeu have not even taken a break to celebrate their success.

According to reports from Alfredo Pedullà, Los Blancos are now completely focused on the acquisition of Harry Kane. The English striker’s arrival is very close to approaching closure and only a few details remain to be sorted.

The Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur representatives reportedly held a meeting today over the striker’s transfer. The agenda was to agree on a number for the transfer fee.

The Premier League side began the proceedings with an expectation of €100 to €110 million in exchange for Kane. However, the Merengues suggested a lower point at €80 to €90 million, albeit with the option to include bonuses.

There is not much separating the two parties at the moment, and the minor gap will be bridged in the coming days. Overall, the meeting ended with a broad understanding between the two clubs.

Carlo Ancelotti sees the English striker as the centre-piece of his attack for next season given the recent departure of Karim Benzema. After all, Kane has been one of football’s most consistent goalscorers over the past decade.

Yet, Los Blancos cannot afford to let their guard down with one signing and will need to rope in at least two more names in attack to serve as backup options. The exits of Mariano Diaz, Marco Asensio, and Eden Hazard leave them with no squad depth, after all.

Kane has scored 30, 17, and 23 goals in his last three seasons in the Premier League and is the epitome of consistency. Further, he had three assists in his most recent league season and created 14 big chances.
